Publisher's Summary

Economist Paul Krugman on this edition of Fresh Air. He's collected the last three years of his New York Times Op-ed columns in the new book, The Great Unraveling: Losing Our Way in the New Century. In the preface he writes that the book is "a chronicle of the years when it all went wrong, again - when the heady optimism of the late 1990s gave way to renewed gloom. It's also an attempt to explain the how and why: how it was possible for a country with so much going for it to go downhill so fast, and why our leaders made such bad decisions." Krugman teaches at Princeton University. (Broadcast Date: September 10, 2003)
