From the Inside Flap

In which the book's central idea is set forth: namely, if morality represents how
people would like the world to work, then economics shows how it actually does
work.

Why the conventional wisdom is so often wrong...How "experts"-from
criminologists to real-estate agents to political scientists-bend the facts...Why
knowing what to measure, and how to measure it, is the key to understanding
modern life... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
