Stress Test – Review By Paul Krugman

by Riaan Nel in News

Tim Geithner

I thought Tim Geithner’s book “Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises” was an impressive contribution to the understanding of the 2008 Great Recession.  I think Paul Krugman’s review was a little harsh on Geithner.  Then again, Paul Krugman has no problem hammering people for being “wrong” according to him.  Krugman always being so adamant irritates me sometimes; however, he does make very good points in the review worth considering.
