"Philip Tetlock is the world expert on a vital subject. Superforecasting is the wonderful story of how he and his research team got ordinary people to beat experts in a very serious game. It is also a manual for thinking clearly in an uncertain world. Read it.”
—Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Prize and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow
“Stiglitz realizes that deepening inequality in our country is not an unlucky act of nature, but a consequence of the policies we have chosen. This lively book suggests a whole menu of policy changes to move us toward a more widely shared prosperity.” — Robert Solow, winner of the Nobel Prize
"Garett Jones' Hive Mind is the very best introduction to a simple truth: The smarts of the people around you are way more important than you think. Much of our world is shaped by this fact, which no one has talked about—until now."
—Tyler Cowen, George Mason University
Failed analyzes worldwide crises, from the US to the Eurozone, and even the prolonged stagnant periods experienced by middle- and low-income countries and proves that political agendas are often the root cause of financial crises and may - as in the case of the Eurozone - prolong crises unnecessarily
"Hyman Minsky is the most important economist since Keynes, yet it’s virtually impossible to find any books about him. Why Minsky Matters should be read not just by anyone who wants to understand Minsky, but anyone who wants to understand our economy. The reason, as L. Randall Wray makes obvious, is that Minsky does a better job of explaining the global financial crisis--and why it isn’t over yet--than anyone else. Everyone should read this book."-- Michael Pettis, Peking University
'No branch of economics has witnessed as many revolutions and counter-revolutions as macroeconomics, starting from Keynes' General Theory eighty years ago. Michel De Vroey's book provides a thorough but highly readable account of the main developments in the field over that period. It conveys a sense of the excitement generated by the advent of every new paradigm, as well as of the growing tension between the requirements of theoretical purity and those of empirical and policy relevance that macroeconomists keep facing these days.' -- Jordi Galí, Universitat Pompeu Fabra
