Product description

Review

'Polemical and entertaining… and excellently titled' -- Heather Stewart, Economics editor of Observer

'Who cooked Adam Smith's dinner? His mother, of course. From this compelling insight, Katrine Marçal builds her critique of economic man, exposing him for the sham he really is. Erudite, furious, and eminently readable, this book will send a great many economists running for cover' -- Philip Roscoe, author of I Spend, Therefore I am

'Marçal's book is instructive, angry and funny: economic man has met his match' -- Nina Power, author of One Dimensional Woman

'Marçal is right that economics simplifies people. The book isn't short of insights and much of Marçal's analysis is thought provoking' --Prospect

'Witty and perceptive, Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner? is a welcome addition to a canon dominated by men. With feminist incisiveness she looks at the mess we're in' --New Internationalist

'In commanding rhetoric punctuated with spiky wit, Katrine Marçal does not seek to yoke every last aspect of our lives to the tyranny of Homo economicus. Rather, she asks why we have fetishised the myth, and suggests that man denuded of his humanity is not such a figure to aspire to after all' --Caroline Criado-Perez, New Statesman

About the Author

KATRINE MARCAL is the lead editorial writer for the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, where she writes articles on Swedish and international politics, economics and feminism. On publication in Sweden, Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner was shortlisted for the August Prize and won the Lagercrantzen Award. She lives in London.
