In which I am now working for the Brits

by on June 6, 2006 at 6:09 am in Books | Permalink

I am pleased to announce that I now have a book contract with Dutton/Penguin.  I have a wonderful editor, Jeff Galas, and of course I have already started the work.  A few bits of the book will look familiar to MR readers, but there will be plenty of new material as well.  Of course you haven’t read it, but I am nonetheless keen to take title suggestions, either in the comments or through email.  If I use your title idea or any close derivative thereof, I will send you something valuable (seriously), of my choosing.

“This margin is too narrow to contain”

What about the now famous “Markets in Everything”?

I was going to suggest the famed “Markets in Everything,” but ds Vasques and Mikey G have beat me to it.

I am feeling particularly uninspired this morning, so I am afraid mine will be entires in what not to name your book:

1. Ecowenomics!
2. Revolution of the Marginal
3. “PayDay”, “Zero”, or “Take Five”, etc. (a real stretch) (

“Great food & interesting places – Markets in everything and everywhere”

Because of the current public interest in economics, your title should have some deriviative of ‘economics’ in it.

Might I suggest:
Love in the 21st Century: An Economist’s View

(I can guarantee whoever writes that above title will make a killing)

Assume I Have a Spatula: The Economics of Everyday Life

or it you don’t want to use economics:

Marginal Revolution, or how I learned to stop worrying and love the Almighty Dollar

Just kidding.

“Yes, but how many of those are chicken ice cream? The life and times of George Akerlof.” If you aren’t planning his biography, however, another title may be in order.
