ARGUING WITH ZOMBIES Economics, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rob Shapiro, Paul Krugman [Fore.]

Contemporary Culture • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Rob Shapiro delivers long, fluid strokes, perfectly paced to draw the listener into Paul Krugman's latest compilation of columns, blog posts, and essays on macroeconomics. Shapiro captures Krugman's passion for explaining the economic implications of political actions. His warm tones breathe life into "zombie" economics, the ins and outs of the housing bubble, recessions, depressions, and periods of prosperity. Arranged by topic, the columns span 2004 through late 2019, reaching back as far as the Great Depression to provide historical, political, and economic context, during the Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations. Listeners are treated to the author's passionate reading of the foreword, a tone that is capably echoed by Shapiro throughout the rest of the audiobook. M.B.K.
