Failed: What The "Experts" Got Wrong About The Global Economy

Why has the Eurozone ended up with an unemployment rate double that of the U.S. more than six years after the 2008 collapse? Why did the majority of low- and middle-income countries suffer a prolonged economic slowdown in the final decades of the 20th century? What was the role of the International Monetary Fund in these economic failures? What accounts for Latin American economic achievements in the 21st century? Failed analyzes these questions, explaining why recent economic developments have been widely misunderstood and in some cases almost completely ignored. Drawing on the history of other financial crises, recessions, and recoveries, Weisbrot argues that economically feasible choices remain for Eurozone governments to greatly reduce unemployment - including in crisis-ridden Greece.
