Editorial Reviews

Review


"[A] terrific book....Fresh, provocative, well written, and well argued. [Recommended] not only to financial and macro-economists, but to the larger economic community interested in the character and costs of business cycles."--Journal of Economic Literature


"The book, unique in its approach...offers an unusual combination of passionate advocacy with precise theoretical reasoning....This excellent book does more than provide a good treatment of some self-contained and specialized questions. It is also likely to initiate a research program. For what Shiller has done is to imagine a sometimes surprising and unfamiliar world in which risk-hedging and risk-spreading markets, while not necessarily complete, are at least a great deal more complete than they are at present."--The Economic Journal


"A brilliant new book that I highly recommend."--Peter L. Bernstein, Journal of Portfolio Management


"Fresh, provocative, well written, and well argued. I recommend it not only to financial and macro-economists, but to the larger economic community interested in the character and costs of business cycles."--Journal of Economic Literature

Fascinating. Not light reading by any stretch, but well worthwhile.

0 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Franz K. on December 30, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a very practical nuts-and-bolts "How to save the economic world". Macro institutions are neccessary to avoid various prisoner dilemma decision issues.

The UN, World Bank, IMF and a few others attempt to carry this mantle, and they do not really execute, and for the same reason - national interest always overides collective interests.

With regards to environmental issues, Shiller's proposals in this text would be quite good at addressing the current conflicts that exist in formulating an agreement.

In the end, however, the best voting and pricing machine is the market. If we price carbon in the marketplace and limit its release, market prices will reflect all known information about carbon.
