Product description

Review

'Combines sociology and neuroeconomics to ask the most fundamental question of the season: why do things cost what they do?' --Prospect

`This is Raj Patel's great gift: he makes even the most radical ideas seem not only reasonable, but inevitable. A brilliant book' --Naomi Klein

`A penetrating and admirably concise guide to the follies of market fundamentalism' --John Gray, Observer

'A tightly argued and timely study that deserves to be read by anyone concerned with the state of the world today' --Tribune

`Patel offers us a whole new way to think about price and value. Bracingly written and full of surprises'
--Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma

About the Author

RAJ PATEL was educated at Oxford, the LSE, and Cornell. A former fellow at Yale and Berkeley, he now holds a Visiting Fellowship at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He has worked for the World Bank, interned at the WTO, consulted for the UN, and protested against his former employers. He is one of only a few activists trusted to work with the Via Campesina peasant movement. His first book was Stuffed & Starved. www.rajpatel.org
