Hyman Minsky’s contribution to economics: a book review

Here is a link to my review of the recently published book Why Minsky Matters by L. Randall Wray, posted on the Rethinking Economics website. Anyone who wants a better understanding of the Great Financial Crisis needs to be familiar with Minsky’s ideas.

His work has been made more widely available by the Levy Economics Institute, where he worked for some years before his death in 1996. However, he is not an easy read, and this book, aimed at the intelligent general reader, goes a long way to putting that right.
