About this product
- DescriptionFor many, Thomas Carlyle's put-down of ecomics as the dismal science rings true--especially in the aftermath of the crash of 2008. But Diane Coyle argues that ecomics today is more soulful than dismal, a more practical and human science than ever before. The Soulful Science describes the remarkable creative renaissance in ecomics, how ecomic thinking is being applied to the paradoxes of everyday life. This revised edition incorporates the latest developments in the field, including the rise of behavioral finance, the failure of carbon trading, and the growing trend of government bailouts. She also discusses such major debates as the relationship between ecomic statistics and presidential elections, the boundary between private choice and public action, and who is to blame for today's banking crisis.
- Author BiographyDiane Coyle is a writer and Harvard economics PhD. A member of the BBC Trust and the UK Competition Commission, and a visiting professor at the University of Manchester, she also runs an economic consulting firm, Enlightenment Economics.
