The Great Convergence Information Technology and the New Globalization
Wed, 2016-11-02 12:01

Many books deal with various features of globalization. Only Baldwin’s deals with the logic of globalization. Globalization happens when the movement of goods, knowledge, and people is technologically possible and cheap enough to encompass the entire world. The first globalization was built on the movement of goods, the one we live today on the movement of knowledge and information, the next one will be built on the movement of people. It is a must-read for those who want to learn about the past and to peer into the future.—Branko Milanovic, City University of New York

Why Information Grows: The Evolution of Order, from Atoms to Economies
Wed, 2016-11-02 12:15

"What is economic growth? And why, historically, has it occurred in only a few places? Previous efforts to answer these questions have focused on institutions, geography, finances, and psychology. But according to MIT's anti-disciplinarian César Hidalgo, understanding the nature of economic growth demands transcending the social sciences and including the natural sciences of information, networks, and complexity. To understand the growth of economies, Hidalgo argues, we first need to understand the growth of order. "

Europe's Growth Challenge
Wed, 2016-11-23 01:03

"Standard policy responses to Europe's growth malady have focused on loose monetary policies and massive government spending. These can at best stabilize, but surely will not cure the patient. Åslund and Djankov propose credible cures based on a wealth of academic research: how to create a more nimble, flexible, and dynamic economy in Europe." -- Andrei Shleifer, Harvard University

Macroeconomics: A critical companion
Wed, 2016-11-23 05:36

 "Almost a decade after a crisis that mainstream economists thought was impossible, they continue to peddle the same basic theories of equilibrium and money neutrality. Students who are justifiably dissatisfied with this fare should consult these books, which distill Ben Fine’s forty years of being a thorn in the side of mainstream economics." --Steve Keen, author of Debunking Economics

How Change Happens
Wed, 2016-11-23 05:54

"In this powerfully argued book, Duncan Green shows how we can make major changes in our unequal and unjust world by concerted action, taking full note of the economic and social mechanisms, including established institutions, that sustain the existing order. If self-confidence is important for the effective agency of deprived communities, so is a reasoned understanding of the difficult barriers that must be faced and overcome. This is a splendid treatise on how to change the actual world-in reality, not just in our dreams." -- Amartya Sen, Nobel Prize-winning economist and author
