Product Details


“Lapavitsas is fascinating and thoughtful.”
Financial Times

“Costas Lapavitsas is part of the cadre of academics-turned-politicians forging Syriza’s economic thinking.”
Wall Street Journal

“Highly readable … A fresh and imaginative look at the crisis, it contributes greatly to the relevant debate, and is especially useful in detailing the theoretical foundations of economic programmes advocated by the radical Left parties that have begun to gain strength across Europe, and in particular Syriza.”
Times Higher Education

“This little book takes up the question of what a left government can do in the face of powerful elites who have savaged the country’s infrastructure in the failed pursuit of budget surpluses. Crucially it charts a path for those who want a clearer view of the way out of the euro.”
Socialist Review

“Demonstrate[s] with clarity that the mercantilist and deflationary policies pursued by Germany since the beginning of EMU must carry the blame for the great rupture that is currently threatening Europe.”
—Oskar Lafontaine, former president of the Social Democratic Party and the Die Linke Party in Germany

“For those who … still believe Europe can be reformed to deliver social justice, growth and high-welfare societies, the authors do the valuable service of spelling out what that would take: the defeat not only of the mainstream conservative parties but also of their right-wing, nationalist challengers, and the total transformation of European social democracy in the direction of heterodox, fiscally expansionist economic policy, and the triumph of the as yet untested new left parties.”
—Paul Mason (from the Preface)
