really liked it

I agree with a previous reviewer that the tone of the book is a bit braggy, but maybe for good reason. I am not an economist, and I don't really have the skills to judge the validity of the authors claims. The book seems to have kicked of a research branch of its own, a feat in itself. And I haven't seen any serious attempts to refute the authors claims. The book is well researched and if the authors haven't totally fabricated their statistics or botched their math the claims made should have serious repercussions for the field of economy. For instance the relationship between growth and inflation which is shown to completely contradict predictions made by neoclassical economists. As far as I can tell that is some earth shattering information.

It would be interesting to read a response to the CasP claims by some well-read economist. Because the claims made are extraordinary. Taken as it is however I find the book both compelling and convincing. Potentially holding a great deal of explanatory power and a theoretical basis for challenging the present capitalist "Creorder".
