Wed, 2014-03-19 16:37   -   (0) comments

"The Tyranny of Experts - Economists, Dictators, and the Forgotten Rights of the Poor" by William Easterly
Wed, 2014-03-19 17:06

"Easterly's new book shows that the expert approach to development rests on an engrained but unexamined premise: that people in poor countries cannot be trusted to make their own decisions. As this wide-ranging and compelling account shows, this assumption is doubly flawed. It's morally offensive and a sure guide to bad policy."--Paul Romer, New York University

"What Money Wants - An Economy of Desire" by Noam Yuran
Wed, 2014-03-19 17:53   -   (0) comments

"Noam Yuran's brilliant book offers a new point of view about the relationship between money and the desire for it. Arguing that desire is built into the nature of money and is not an external attachment to it, Yuran opens up new readings of Marx, Veblen, and Weber, and also gives readers a new perspective on the ways in which money can inspire excess and destabilize economies. This book will be of great interest to economists, philosophers, and social theorists."—Arjun Appadurai, New York University
