For these countries, there are only two options, and neither is good?restructure the debt or reduce it through austerity measures. The End Game details the Debt Supercycle and the sovereign debt crisis, and shows that, while there are no good choices, the worst choice would be to ignore the deleveraging resulting from the credit crisis.

It is fasinating to re-read this after the passing of sufficient time to see how the conclusions actually are working out. Unfortunately for economics the apparently unassailable conclusions reached shortly after the financial crisis now look considerably less convincing. Perhaps the best concluion is John Mauldin’s own comment - that we are now in the “muddle through” economy. Certainly there are few signs of the “end game” that is so confidently predicted with so much unimpeachable economic theory.

Sorry, not buying this disinformational balderdash! Why do THEY always pose everything as only one-of-two choices, their bi-polar reframing of everything? Because that is all they want the rest of us, the masses, the sheeple, the cannon fodder, to believe! "..there are only two options, and neither is good?restructure the debt or reduce it through austerity measures." Hmmmm....wasn't Rogoff's exceedingly bad Excel skills just demonstrated for the world publicly, putting the lie to his promotion of austerity for the victims? Restructuring THEIR debt? Since they made all those billions and trillions by selling that debt, then shoving it onto the rest of us, while destroying our jobs, our lives, our livelihoods and futures, how's about they pay off their own darn debt? (For a real change!) " ..the worst choice would be to ignore the deleveraging resulting from the credit crisis." Well, they made those billions and trillions by selling that debt, the best solution to deleveraging is they give all those stolen billions and trillions (from financial fraud) back, and pay off THEIR debt! Negative rating for propaganda tract.

I recommend everyone read this book but do so with an open mind. It fairly resonates with bafflegab in the language of the investing class and spews forth in a frenzy of obfuscation that only economists can spawn. If all the Nobel Prizers' and Phd's can't fix the problems what does that say about the body of theory they trust? If you are not an investor (smart people) then you must be a consumer (dumb people). The people at the bottom of the food chain have a job to do....consume. Just keep consuming or the system fails for the investing class.
