    Economics is too important to be left to economists Despite the growing number of high level economists echoing this warning, the world doesn t seem to be listening or not enough, at least Banerjee all economists must factor humanity into their algorithms What s changed in recent decades is improved travel Poor Economics, highlights that drastic reforms are not always necessary or desirable Small adjustments, slight method changes, can achieve great results Capitalism isn t in crisis only in need of a service.Can we follow Poor Economics with Good Economics Yes, quite easily, but I don t know if we will This wide ranging discussion gives multiple real life examples of what works It analyses why they work, why other things don t, and suggests global improvements It s essential reading for today s economics students and will also provide crucial perspective to sociologists, students of politics, and the aid sector.

    I actually thought this book was a guide to being better about personal finances when I first glanced at it but it definitely is no that I found the book really interesting, there was a lot of discussion about current issues and politics but done in a way that made it interesting, easy to read and easy to understand For me the take home message was that until you try it you don t really know how something will pan out, you can have an educated guess but that s as far as it goes Politicians take which opinion they like best and peddle it as fact Worth a read.
