    3. Quite brilliant in parts Compelling and convincing as a political biography of Keynesianism The conclusion baffled me though.

    4. Very provocative and extremely helpful A great entrance into a smart understanding of the history we are all living While I have some background in social theory Marx especially for this book and economics exposure to mainstream thought, critical work in inequality, and general economic history , Mann provides synthesis, insight, and critique with a personal voice I found to be compelling The right book for these post recession and post Keynsian times, I highly recommend it Certainly one of the [...]
