Reviews

'A wide-ranging, thorough and fascinating account of the economic challenges facing Greece.' - James K Galbraith, University of Texas, USA

'This book is the first focused attempt to bring the whole story of Greece's economy into the public domain. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the last 15 years and a first-class and very timely analysis for those wishing to know the economic and institutional pathologies that led the Greek economy to the tragic free fall. It is actually a required reading for all those wishing to know what has actually gone wrong in the Greek Economy.' - Philip Arestis, University of Cambridge, UK

'An extremely timely book as it demonstrates convincingly that the pathologies of the Greek economy have broader political implications.' - Christos P. Ioannides, Queens College, USA

'This is Freakonomics meets the Greek crisis. It is an original, penetrating and broad analysis of the problems of the Greek system. The diagnosis is compelling. The solutions are provocative. It is a timely leap forward in the debate on the future.' - Kevin Featherstone, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

'A scathing account of Greece's economic implosion.' - New York Times

'An acclaimed book on the Greek crisis...and its past, present and future impact on the Eurozone and across the Globe' -Justin Vaisse, The Brookings Institution

'An indispensable explication of the country where Europe's debt crisis was born.' - Helena Smith, The Guardian
