A mustread.A magnificent achievement and the perfect book for our time. Banerjee and Duflo brilliantly illuminate the largest issues of the day including immigration trade climate change and inequality.Banerjee and Duflo are masters of this terrain. They have digested hundreds of lab experiments field experiments statistical studies and common observation to find regularities and irregularities that shape important patterns of economic behavior and need to be taken into account when we think about central issues of policy analysis. They do this with simple logic and plain English. Their book is as stimulating as it gets.Excellent important disarmingly down to earth . . . they seek to shed muchneeded light upon the distortions that bad economics bring to public debates while methodically deconstructing their false assumptions.FROM THE WINNERS OF THE 2019 NOBEL PRIZE IN ECONOMICSWonderfully refreshing . . . A must read Thomas Piketty In this revolutionary book prizewinning economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how economics when done right can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day. From immigration to inequality slowing growth to accelerating climate change we have the resources to address the challenges we face but we are so often blinded by ideology.Original provocative and urgent Good Economics for Hard Times offers the newthinking that we need. It builds on cuttingedge research in economics and years of exploring the most effective solutions to alleviate extreme poverty to make a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect. A muchneeded antidote to polarized discourse this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.
