Sound post-Keynesian economic reasoning well argued—a book that one hopes, against the odds, the heads of the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England will entertain.

Synopsis

The financial crisis of 2008 was caused by greedy, unscrupulous bankers. Luckily, the Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve were our firefighters. These central banks rescued us from the brink of collapse and resuscitated our economies. Except that isn't the whole story. A simplistic narrative, it glosses over one inconvenient truth - it was the firefighters who started the fire.

Highly arresting and sobering, Bluff has significant implications for the decisions we make about own finances and even our mid- to long-term life strategies. Hoda's thesis is set out with clarity and power, and her prediction is this - without radical systematic change only greater crises lie ahead.
