The Failure of Judges and the Rise of Regulators
Thu, 2016-07-07 06:02

In this book, Andrei Shleifer argues that the ubiquity of regulation can be explained not so much by the failure of markets as by the failure of courts to solve contract and tort disputes cheaply, predictably, and impartially.

Welcome to the Poisoned Chalice - The Destruction of Greece and the Future of Europe
Thu, 2016-07-07 06:51

In Welcome to the Poisoned Chalice, James Galbraith gives us an extraordinary inside account of Greece’s courageous and ultimately ill-fated challenge to a European power structure whose policies have left much of the continent in economic tatters. It is a tale of practical idealism coming face to face with brute political and financial power - a saga that is likely to be the opening chapter in the unfolding battle for Europe’s future. -- Phil Angelides, Chairman, U.S Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (2009-2011)
