Synopsis

FROM THE WINNERS OF THE 2019 NOBEL PRIZE IN ECONOMICS



'Wonderfully refreshing . . . A must read' Thomas Piketty



In this revolutionary book, prize-winning 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 new

thinking that we need. It builds on cutting-edge 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 much-needed antidote to polarized discourse, this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.
