Pressestimmen

[C]ogent and readable. -- The Nation

[A]n excellent new book. -- Jessica Irvine, Sydney Morning Herald


Apparently some economists have a sense of humor, dismal though it may be. Quiggin uses the 2008 global financial crisis as the focal point for examining five core macroeconomic and financial theories that have been--to use zombie terminology--killed by our current predicament. . . . Economics students and interested lay readers will find this valuable. -- Library Journal



Quiggin is a writer of great verve who marshals some powerful evidence. -- Financial Times



The financial crisis has disproved many cherished tenets of 'market liberalism', such as the 'Efficient Markets Hypothesis', yet these zombie ideas still shamble through newspapers and journals. Enter economist Quiggin, calmly wielding dual shotguns to blast them relentlessly in the face. . . . As Quiggin explains with elegance, lucidity and deadpan humour, the undead ideas here are interconnected: killing one causes it to knock over another in a sort of zombie-dominoes effect. -- Guardian



[C]ogent and readable. -- The Nation



It's hard to resist a book called "Zombie Economics", and University of Queensland professor John Quiggin makes his tale as compelling as his title. . . . It's the rare read that's both thoughtful and fun. -- Biz Ed Magazine



"Zombie Economics" is . . . a highly readable and sobering assessment of the role played by discredited economic ideas in the global financial and economic meltdown of 2008-09. Quiggin delves deeply into the origins and development of all the star culprits so loved by the economic right in recent decades: from the efficient markets hypothesis to privatization and Real Business Cycle Theory. None has stood up to the stern test posed by real markets and economies in crisis. Yet most live on, still featured in many curriculums and advocated by those academics who have staked their careers on them. -- Globe & Mail



From the so-called 'great moderation' concept to the implications of the efficient markets hypothesis, Quiggin does an excellent job summarizing each zombie idea and explaining why it is discredited in a simple (but not simplistic) manner. -- Choice



Peppered with humorous quotations, theory and history, Quiggin has assembled a compelling read about the misguided intellectual economic assumptions of the last forty years and also gives possible solutions to our current financial dilemma. -- Stamas, Bullfax.com



[A]n excellent new book. -- Jessica Irvine, Sydney Morning Herald



This book is certainly a good read for anyone eager to know why it is urgent that economists come up with a socially useful body of thought or suggestions. -- Shanghai Daily

Lucid, lively and loaded with hard data, passionate, provocative and . . . persuasive. . . . ("Zombie Economics") should be required reading, even for those who aren't Keynesians or Krugmaniacs.--Glenn C. Altschuler "Barron's "

Entertaining and thought-provoking. . . . [W]orks as a good summary for non-specialists of how the economics debate has developed.--Philip Coggan "Economist "

Erroneous economic ideas resemble the living dead, writes John Quiggin in his smart new book "Zombie Economics". They are dangerous yet impossible to kill. Even after a financial crisis buries them, they survive in our minds and can rise unbidden from the necropolis of ideology.--James Pressley "Bloomberg News "

Cleverly titled, with a wonderful and very un-academic cartoon cover and written without excessive jargon, "Zombie Economics" provides an elegant critical introduction and analysis of some of the key ideas of modern economic thought.--Satyajit Das "Naked Capitalism "

I haven't done justice to Quiggin's book, so if you're interested in a readable exposition of the exploits of academic economists over the past 35 years I recommend it highly. It's the story of how economists forgot much of what they knew. Please, guys, don't do that again.--Ross Gittins "Sydney Morning Herald "

As well as exposing how these flawed ideas brought on the global crisis and how they live on, Quiggin offers his view on a new way forward in economic theory. It's time to bury the zombie.--Fiona Capp "The Age "

Put a bullet through the decaying brain of walking-dead economics by reading Quiggin.--Seth Sandronsky "SN&R "

[A]n excellent new book.--Jessica Irvine "Sydney Morning Herald "

When I put on my economist's hat, I admire my field's ability to publicly hang its soiled laundry in public. I encourage my colleagues in sociology, psychology, and management to read this book and leverage it to lead to a more integrated social science and, perhaps, a more socially aware economic science--.Brent Goldfarb "Administrative Science Quarterly "

Quiggin manages to be argumentative, accurate, straight forward and convincing, while on occasion humorous. Certainly a good companion for anyone hoping to navigate the swamps of messy, and failed economic ideas.--Sarthak Shankar "Organiser "

If we're lucky, there will be more books like this one, criticizing 'market liberal' economics (neoliberalism or laissezfaire) from the left. John Quiggin . . . presents a learned and frankly social-democratic attack on market liberalism.--James G. Devine "Science & Society "

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch behandelt jeweils in einem eigenen Kapitel fünf zentrale Thesen des Markt-Liberalismus. The Great Moderation, The Efficient Market Hypothesis, Dynamic Stochastic Equilibrium, Trickle-Down Economics, Privatization.
Jedes Kapitel ist in die Abschnitte Birth, Life, Death, Reanimation, After the Zombies und Further Reading unterteilt.
Das Buch richtet sich an ein breiteres Publikum. Der Autor kann auch sehr gut erklären. Es ist aber keine simple polemische Abrechnung mit den Thesen des Markt-Liberalismus, sondern eine relativ fundierte wissenschaftliche Analyse. Man muss kein Ökonom sein um dieses Buch zu verstehen. Ohne gewisse Vorkenntnisse warum es überhaupt geht wird man aber auch nicht sehr klug werden.
Es werden die einzelnen Theorien der besseren Verständlichkeit wegen separat behandelt. Quiggin erklärt aber auch die inneren Zusammenhänge. Obwohl die einzelnen Thesen teilweise bizarr wirken (z.B. Rationale Erwartungen), als geschlossenes Ideensystem hat der Markt-Liberalismus durchaus seine innere Logik. Man muss nur ein paar Grundprinzipien glauben und keinen allzu scharfen Blick auf die Wirklichkeit richten. Aber das gilt wohl für die meisten Ideologien.

Der Crash von 2008 war das denkbar eindeutigste "Experiment" welches man sich zur Widerlegung einer wissenschaftlichen Theorie vorstellen kann. Wie der Titel des Buches bereits sagt, geht Quiggin aber keineswegs davon aus, dass der Markt-Liberalismus damit erledigt ist.
"An approach to economoics that has been dominant for more than three decades will not go away simply because its predictions are inconsistent with the facts".

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Die Finanzkrise hat gezeigt, dass die Vorstellung vom effizienten Markt gescheitert ist. Der Kasinobetrieb namens Finanzmarkt hat viele der Annahmen hinter der herrschenden Wirtschaftslehre blossgestellt, dass marktorientierte Lösungen immer am besten sind, unabhängig von der Art und Weise des Problems. Die Protagonisten der neoklassischen Theorie haben jahrzehntelang die Mainstream Economics beherrscht. Ihr Einfluss hat ein System erzeugt, wo ein gedankenloses Vertrauen in Märkte viele in spekulative Investitionen verleitet hat, welche als grundsätzlich sicher gesehen wurden. Die Krise schien diese Ideen getötet zu haben. Aber sie leben immer noch in den Köpfen vieler Mitglieder der Öffentlichkeit, Ökonomen, Politiker und auch derjenigen, die jetzt mit dem Aufräumen des Schlamassels beauftragt sind. Kurzum suchen die toten Ideen auf dem Friedhof der ökonomischen Ideologie das Land weiter heim.

Dieses tolle Buch befasst sich mit einigen dieser Ideen, die in der Krise eine Rolle gespielt haben. Es sind: (1) Great Moderation: Die Idee, dass die Periode, die 1985 begonnen hat, eine beispiellose makroökonomische Stabilität bot, (2) Efficient Markets Hypothesis: Die Idee, dass die von den Finanzmärkten erzeugten Preise die bestmögliche Schätzung des Wertes einer Investition repräsentieren, (3) Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE): Die Idee, dass die makroökonomische Analyse sich um gesamtwirtschaftliche Aggregate wie Handelsbilanzsaldos und Schuldenstand nicht kümmern soll.
