A new book by my friend and Wharton colleague, Joel Waldfogel. I’ve not read it yet, but based on our lunchtime conversations, I’m looking forward to it. (Hint: what does it take to get a free copy?) Plus you’ve got to admire any book invoking the Rolling Stones in the title.
Joel has summarized the main arguments in his latest column at Slate. Certainly a subtle and fascinating hypothesis about
how and when markets can fail us. More commentary (from the Wharton writers) here.
