Wed, 2017-03-08 08:34

“A Primer in Econometric Theory presents key foundations and supplements them with good examples. It vividly shows the benefits given to us by decades of technical progress in econometrics and computational methods. Stachurski’s writing style presents technical arguments in attractive and accessible ways.” —Thomas J. Sargent, New York University

Efficiency, Finance, and Varieties of Industrial Policy
Wed, 2017-03-08 08:42

"Learning and ideas are public assets; capital markets have deep problems in managing longer-term risk. That is enough to tell us that market structures and government policies around finance and technology are likely to be critical to growth in all economies whether more advanced or less advanced. That means that industrial policy matters. The challenge is how to do it well and in a way that fosters rather than hinders entrepreneurship and creativity. That is why this book is so important. It is full of insight and empirical investigation and covers a very broad range of countries and economies. It is an immensely valuable contribution. "-- Nicholas Stern, London School of Economics

Basic Income - A Radical Proposal for a Free Society and a Sane Economy
Wed, 2017-03-08 08:47

“In this important introduction to the ‘basic income’ initiative—an economic proposal that may radically transform the nature of the modern economy and society—two leading social scientists examine the ethics and economics of the proposed move. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the problems of deprivation and unfreedom that survive even in the richest countries in the world. The remedial reasoning presented by Van Parijs and Vanderborght is powerful as well as highly engaging—a brilliant book.”—Amartya Sen, Harvard University

The Complacent Class - The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream
Wed, 2017-03-08 08:51

"Tyler Cowen is an international treasure. Endlessly inventive and uniquely wide-ranging, he has produced a novel account of what ails us: undue complacency. No one but Cowen would ask, 'Why Americans stopped rioting and instead legalized marijuana.' He admires risk-taking, and he likes restlessness, and he thinks the United States needs lots more of both. Don't be complacent: Read this book!"--Cass R. Sunstein, Harvard University
