Krugman, Rajan, and the causes of the slump

Paul Krugman and Robin Wells review three books on the financial crisis, including Raghuram Rajan’s “Fault Lines”. I thought Rajan’s book was excellent, and said so in this FT review. The Krugmans are not at all impressed. See what you think — and when you have read their review, be sure to read Rajan’s response.

I have been the FT's Washington columnist since April 2007. I moved from Britain to the US in 2005 to write for the Atlantic Monthly and the National Journal after 20 years working at the Economist, most recently as deputy editor. I write mainly about the intersection of politics and economics.
