Some praise for The Endless Crisis:
"This valuable inquiry should be carefully studied and pondered, and should be taken as an incentive to action."—Noam Chomsky
"In the distinguished tradition of Paul Baran and Paul Sweezy, Foster and McChesney here combine grim analysis with bleak prognosis, reminding us that monopoly power disappeared from the textbooks but not from real life."—James K. Galbraith
"A compelling discussion of the central economic reality of our time: that the Wall Street collapse and Great Recession of 2007-09 was a human calamity whose effects are ongoing."—Robert Pollin
