About the Author

"Putting idle people and equipment to work during an economic downturn is pure fiscal alchemy. It generates additional income at literally no cost. Yet we almost always fail do it. Larry Seidman explains why traditional traditional approaches fall short and proposes a disarmingly attractive alternative. If we'd had this compellingly argued book a decade ago, we could have avoided the trillions of dollars lost forever during The Great Recession. How To Combat Recession: Stimulus without Debt will be one of the most important economic policy books of our time." -Robert H. Frank, Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management, SC Johnson College of Business, Cornell University "Larry Seidman is always interesting--and sometimes provocative. How to Combat Recession: Stimulus without Debt is both. You may not agree with Seidman on every count-I don't-but his arguments are worth reading and cogitating over. After all, how we'll get out of 'the next recession' is a hugely important issue."-Alan S. Blinder, Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Princeton University "When Larry Seidman speaks you should listen. I know this firsthand because of the dozens of suggestions I got when helping to put together the response to the Great Recession, the only one that in hindsight I regret not taking was Seidman's ideas. At a time when people are increasingly concerned about how to respond to next recession, Seidman's book articulates and methodically defends a brilliant, provocative and important proposal for a robust response. Economists, policymakers and the public more broadly should not wait for the next recession to occur to start discussing, debating and potentially assimilating these ideas."-Jason Furman, Professor of Practice, Harvard Kennedy School and former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers (2013-17)
