"Pop internationalists" -- people who speak impressively about international tradewhile ignoring basic economics and misusing economic figures are the target of this collection ofPaul Krugman's most recent essays. In the clear, readable, entertaining style that brought acclaimfor his best-selling Age of Diminished Expectations, Krugman explains what real economic analysisis. He discusses economic terms and measurements, like "value-added" and GDP, in simple language sothat readers can understand how pop internationalists distort, and sometimes contradict, the mostbasic truths about world trade.All but two of the essays have previously appeared in suchpublications as Foreign Affairs, Scientific American, and the Harvard Business Review. The firstfive essays take on exaggerations of foreign competition's effects on the U.S. economy and representKrugman's central criticisms of public debate over world trade. The next three essays expose furtherdistortions of economic theory and include the complete, unaltered, controversial review of LauraTyson's Who's Bashing Whom. The third group of essays highlights misconceptions about competitionfrom less industrialized countries. The concluding essays focus on interesting and legitimateeconomic questions, such as the effects of technological change on society.

Review: Pop InternationalismUser Review - Joshua Concepcion - Goodreads
This is one of the books that should be read and re-read. It's nearly 20-years old, yet it is as relevant as ever. It's been sad to witness a first rate intellectual like Krugman become the combative, irresponsible intellectual he is today. Still, this book is great. Read full review
