Product description

Review

'With his sharp, incisive and engaging style, Jason Murphy brings economics to the masses. Always a must read!' – Daniel Sankey, The Australian

'There are certain scholarly, erudite economics commentators whose storied reputations precede them. Jason Murphy is not one of them. He is different. He has hijacked economics from the academy and taken it into the real world. In doing this, he makes it accessible — actually, very interesting — to people who are curious and thoughtful, but want to understand where the economy meets life. He compels you to read about economics, and that’s saying something.' – Eric Beecher,
Crikey

'Jason Murphy possesses that rare gift of originality of thought and, rarer still, the ability to write about it with clarity, wit and insight.' – Mathew Dunckley,
SMH/The Age

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 September 2019
Just finished reading this, it was a fun read!

I've read Freakonomics and the Malcolm Gladwell books, etc. This is in the same vein but taught me something new about economics - how incentives shape our world. The author writes in an easy conversational tone, and I've come away with more than just some great dinner party anecdotes (though I have those too); it was a hopeful and different take on some of the greatest global issues, and the role of incentives in affecting change.

Overall, a whole bunch of excellent yarns, big concepts captured concisely (have you ever thought long and hard about what a billion is?), and fresh insights and perspectives. Incisive reading that is going to make my Christmas shopping list very straightforward!
