Slouching Towards Utopia.

Brad DeLong 
One thing I like to do from time to time, is recommend a good book. Brad DeLong has been an economics and history professor at UC Berkeley for a long time, and I have enjoyed reading his posts. He has recently put together many of his thoughts in a book, Slouching Towards Utopia, which I am reading and recommend to anyone interested in the history of the "Long 20th Century" from 1870-2010. The Economist's very positive review of the book is here.

Brad DeLong has come up on this blog before -- here's a list of the times I've mentioned him previously:

  1. Paul Krugman: "Brad, Don't Get Too Excited."
  2. QE4.
  3. Brooks and Krugman.
  4. Nothing So Dear as #cheapmoney 
  5. Le Mieux est l'ennemi du Bien.
  6. @RobertJShiller and the #EMRATIO.
