Editorial Reviews


“Ryan Avent is a superb writer. I am confident that his book will be very successful.”―Thomas Piketty

“Ryan Avent is one of the sharpest and most intelligent writers around. Nobody is better placed to tell us how technology is shaping our economy and our lives.”―Tim Harford

“Many of the world's top economists read, engage with, and debate Ryan Avent on a regular basis, including on labor markets and technology.” ―Tyler Cowen

“An ambitious, insightful and provocative book...Avent ranges widely through the often insular silos of economics, blending microeconomics with macro, industrial organization with international trade, labor economics with financial, economic history with economic geography. In the best Economist tradition, this book is both accessible and sophisticated, one that raises all the right questions.”―Washington Post
