The Age of Diminished Expectations, Third Edition by Paul Krugman

Paul Krugmans popular guide to the economic landscape of the 1990s has been revised and updated to take into account economic developments of the years from 1994 - 1997. New material in the third edition includes: A new chapter—complete with colorful examples from Llyods of London and Sumitomo Metals—on how risky behavior can lead to disaster in private markets. An evaluation of the Federal Reserves role in reining in economic growth to prevent inflation, and the debate over whether its targets are too low. A look at the collapse of the Mexican peso and the burst of Japans "bubble" economy. A revised discussion of the federal budget deficit, including the growth concern that Social Security and Medicare payments to retiring baby boomers will threaten the solvency of the government. Finally, in the updated concluding section, the author provides three possible scenarios for the American economy over the next decade. He warns us that we live in age of diminished expectations, in which the voting public is willing to settle for policy drift—but with the first baby boomers turning 65 in 2011, the economy will not be able to drift indefinitely.
