Fed Power: How Finance Wins, co-authored by Desmond King, is the subject of a major review symposium in the American Political Science Association’s journal: Perspectives on Politics.

Four leading academics – Jacqui True (Monash University, Australia),  Elisabeth Prügl (Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva), Leo Panitch (York University, Canada) and Fred L. Block (University of California, Davis) – have offered their analysis of the book, and have described it as “an important step forward for the social sciences”, written “in a hard-hitting and colloquial style that makes for great reading, offering a new understanding of the crisis as linked to normal, humdrum politics”.
