Review of Stephen Cohen and Bradford DeLong, Concrete Economics: The Hamilton Approach to Economic Growth and Policy
Looks comparable to Mariana Mazzucato's The Entrepreneurial State.
A radically different version of economic history
Review by john
DeLong, an economist at the University of California at Berkeley and a prominent and prolific blogger, and Cohen, an emeritus professor of regional and city planning at Berkeley, don't offer a plan. They simply recommend that discussion of economic policy focus on the concrete -- what works -- rather than theory and ideology.
Such a novel idea.
