What the "Experts" Got Wrong about the Global Economy

Mark Weisbrot

  • Analyzes long-term economic failures, from the Eurozone to developing countries
  • Shows how political agendas are often at the root of long-term economic failures and - as in the Eurozone - can prolong financial crises unnecessarily
  • Examines why the IMF has lost most of its influence in middle-income countries over the past decade and a half
  • Looks at the causes and consequences of Latin America's "second independence" and economic rebound in the 21st century, including important changes in economic policy by various governments
