He’s been pimping his book, End This Depression Now!. He’s been getting a lot of publicity lately and has been on a book tour in Europe and here. I found this youtube video of Paul giving a short presentation on his book and doing a Q&A in Cambridge, MA. For an economist, he’s very entertaining and funny. I like his upbeat optimism.
Here’s hoping his book is wildly successful and that the working class (that would be all of us not living on our investments, O Best Beloved) encounter him in their travels across the media spectrum. I fear he is a tiny voice in the wilderness unless he hits #1 on Amazon.
Disclaimer: You don’t need to order it from Amazon. You can buy it at Barnes and Noble. I saw it there yesterday. You can probably get it at the Princeton Book Store, if you’re so inclined. Or iTunes. Whatever frosts your crockies. I only mention Amazon because their top ranked booklist tends to get a lot of attention and maybe some economically and politically naive person might stumble on it. Let’s not make this a diatribe about how evil Amazon is as a corporation or, you know, foolish consistencies, hobgoblins and all that.
AND I WEAR NIKES!
