About this product
- DescriptionFor fifty years, ecomists have been developing elegant theories or how markets facilitate invation, create wealth, and allocate society's resources efficiently. But what about when they fail, when they lead us to stock market bubbles, glaring inequality, polluted rivers, and credit crunches? In How Markets Fail, John Cassidy describes the rising influence of utopian ecomies the thinking that is blind to how real people act and that denies the many ways an unregulated free market can bring on disaster. Combining on-the-ground reporting and clear explanations of ecomic theories Cassidy warns that in today's ecomic crisis, following old orthodoxies isn't just misguided it's downright dangerous.
- Author BiographyJohn Cassidy is a journalist at The New Yorker and a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books. He is the author of Dot.con: How America Lost Its Mind and Money in the Internet Era and lives in New York City.
