Paul Krugman spoke about his book, End This Depression Now!, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday May 2, 2012.

In this authoritative call-to-action, the 2008 Nobel laureate in economic sciences says that while the ongoing economic crisis qualifies as a depression, many nations have the talent and resources to turn things around. Calling for leaders to demonstrate “intellectual clarity and political will,” Krugman outlines the steps necessary to resolve the situation and achieve prosperity.
