Review


This book is short, accessible and thought-provoking. . . . Frank draws heavily from game theory and evolutionary biology to explain why do-gooders work for less and firms that don't squeeze suppliers and cheat customers profit over the long run. -- Washington Post


This book is short, accessible and thought-provoking. . . . Frank draws heavily from game theory and evolutionary biology to explain why do-gooders work for less and firms that don't squeeze suppliers and cheat customers profit over the long run. -- "Washington Post

Moral behavior is not irrational . . . Frank insists. The challenge is to define self-interest in a manner capacious enough to accommodate the real motives for people's choices. Frank does this with a mixture of Darwinian science, psychology, and flexible common sense.--Laura Secor "Boston Globe "

"What Price the Moral High Ground?" Is wide-ranging and well-written.--John J. DiIulio, Jr. "The Weekly Standard "

[Frank's] vision is one that allows people to strive to meet their chosen goals and promotes the common good in an ordered cosmos--which is exactly where many of us want to live.--Merrill Matthews "Business Economics "

From the Inside Flap

"I loved this book. It makes sense of key economic behaviors not well explained by other models, through a combination of theory, examples, and clever experiments. Clearly written, it will be easily understood not only by economists but also noneconomists. Vintage Frank."--Shlomo Maital, author of Executive Economics"Robert Frank takes us beyond the economic notion of rationality, pointing to the norms that guide people, their social status, and character, and make them seem nicer than economic theory would have them be. He adds an interesting twist to the story by showing that those who are subjected to theory may actually be less nice, less cooperative than others."--Arjo Klamer, editor of Conversations with Economists and The Value of Culture -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
