The author is Luigi Zingales, and the subtitle is Recapturing the Lost Genius of American Prosperity. I know you have book fatigue, popular economics book fatigue, policy book fatigue, and books-with-subtitles-like-this fatigue, all at once. But this book is really, really good. It hits all the right notes, is clearly written, and refers to academics as the new crony capitalists.” I agreed with almost all of it.
If I had to pick out one book, of this entire lot of books, to explain what is going on right now to a popular audience of non-economists, this might well be it. It is due out in June.
