Read Zombie Economics: How Dead Ideas Still Walk Among Us

Recently found a copy at the local library. A fairly new book so I don't think it would be hard to find a copy at your local Barnes and Noble either. The book by John Quiggin is about many bad economic ideas given since the days of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, and how many people are bragging or trying to use them today. Stuff like privatization and trickle down economics. One of the few books in America I've ever read that praised Social Democracy and mentions the successes of the Scandinavian countries.
