'In Financial Markets, Money and the Real World Professor Davidson lucidly and persuasively sums up his major insights into the working of "non-ergodic" (uncertain) economic systems. It is essential reading for those who wish to understand why financial markets have become so volatile and are puzzled to know what to do about it. It is refreshing to read an author who writes so much in the spirit of Keynes and who is able and willing to develop Keynes's ideas creatively and apply them imaginatively to the understanding and management of today's globalized economy.' - Lord Skidelsky, University of Warwick, UK 'This book should be a classic in economics. Paul Davidson combines dazzling clarity and a passion for economic truth and common sense in illuminating the dark thickets surrounding today's free enterprise system. Professional economists and concerned citizens should both pay heed to this fine book.' - Peter L. Bernstein, Peter L. Bernstein Inc., US Paul Davidson investigates why the 1990s was a decade of financial crises that almost precipitated a global market crash. He explores the reasons why the global economy still struggles with the aftermath of these crises and discusses the possibility that volatile financial markets in the future will have real impacts on whole industries and national economic systems.
