Gripping reading and a page turner. Really!,
This review is from: The Origin Of Wealth: Evolution, Complexity, and the Radical Remaking of Economics (Paperback)
The title hardly does justice to the richness of the topics he covers, and the brilliance and clarity of the writing. I found myself on a train at midnight reading avidly, jumping ahead, going back - excited at what he uncovered for me. I am not an economist, my interests are sustainability, anthropology and behaviour, and nevertheless this book is a fantastic invitation to understand complex systems and the economy. Highly, highly, highly recommended.
You'll never read a newspaper the same way again.
