Summary
An accessible, compelling introduction to today’s major policy issues from the New York Times columnist, best-selling author, and Nobel prize–winning economist Paul Krugman.
There is no better guide than Paul Krugman to basic economics, the ideas that animate much of our public policy. Likewise, there is no stronger foe of zombie economics, the misunderstandings that just won’t die.

In Arguing with Zombies, Krugman tackles many of these misunderstandings, taking stock of where the United States has come from and where it’s headed in a series of concise, digestible chapters. Drawn mainly from his popular New York Times column, they cover a wide range of issues, organized thematically and framed in the context of a wider debate. Explaining the complexities of health care, housing bubbles, tax reform, Social Security, and so much more with unrivaled clarity and precision, Arguing with Zombies is Krugman at the height of his powers.

Arguing with Zombies puts Krugman at the front of the debate in the 2020 election year and is an indispensable guide to two decades’ worth of political and economic discourse in the United States and around the globe. With quick, vivid sketches, Krugman turns his readers into intelligent consumers of the daily news and hands them the keys to unlock the concepts behind the greatest economic policy issues of our time. In doing so, he delivers an instant classic that can serve as a reference point for this and future generations.

Pretty good book but it’s a rehash of his previous NYT articles. A lot on the bush administration, Medicare, Medicaid and the ACA debate. Good introduction to the material and great examples of “zombie topics”

I am a scientist. I appreciate data, facts and the comparative approach to issues. Paul Krugman offers substantial support his arguments. “Arguing with Zombies” is an excellent, often humorous and well documented refutation of long dead ideas that continue to be used to rationalize ideas of purely ideological purpose. I am reading this for the second time as it is especially relevant during the present deluge of nonsense in the current political arena.
