Product description

Review

Not all economists wear ties and think like bankers. In their wonderfully refreshing book, Banerjee and Duflo delve into impressive areas of new research questioning conventional views about issues ranging from trade to top income taxation and mobility, and offer their own powerful vision of how we can grapple with them. A must-read.

A magnificent achievement, and the perfect book for our time. Banerjee and Duflo brilliantly illuminate the largest issues of the day, including immigration, trade, climate change, and inequality.

Banerjee and Duflo are masters of this terrain. They have digested hundreds of lab experiments, field experiments, statistical studies, and common observation to find regularities and irregularities that shape important patterns of economic behavior and need to be taken into account when we think about central issues of policy analysis. They do this with simple logic and plain English. Their book is as stimulating as it gets.

Excellent, important, disarmingly down to earth . . . they seek to shed much-needed light upon the distortions that bad economics bring to public debates while methodically deconstructing their false assumptions. (Observer)

The real meaning of this book by a Nobel-prizewinning duo of economists lies in its method - a patient attempt to take on tough problems through empirical evidence. ...The pair offer insights into thorny global issues ranging from inequality to corruption, all with refreshing humility. (The Economist)

Book Description

Two prize-winning economists show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day.
