Editorial Reviews

Review

“An entertaining overview of economic thought from WWII to the 2000s…witty and energetic.” —Publishers Weekly

“Bright, accessible…A thoughtful examination of the mechanics of our one-click world.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This book is essential reading for any non-economist who wants to understand how markets shape our world, including transformational marketplaces like Amazon, Airbnb, and eBay.” —Reid Hoffman, chairman of LinkedIn

“With great clarity and with many vivid examples, The Inner Lives of Markets explains how the post–World War II worldly philosophers (i.e., economists) have reconceived the workings of our economic system. That reconception takes us far from the black and white of Adam Smith and Karl Marx; yet more interestingly, it is in many shades of gray.” —George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate in Economics-
