MORE FAR-REACHING THAN TOMAS PIKETTY!

Philip Soos and Paul Egan have just had their all-encompassing work Bubble Economics: Australian Land Speculation 1830 – 2013  published by the World Economics Association.

This mighty reference (796 pp.) documents the boom-into-bust periods that have over the period constantly curtailed ongoing prosperity and bedevilled Australian society.

“Bubble Economics” comes with unmatched data and charts on property bubbles and is downloadable free from the WEA website.
