Books in my pile, real or virtual

1. The Economists’ Voice: Top Economists Take On Today’s Problems, edited by Stiglitz, Edlin, and DeLong, useful excerpts from the journal.

2. Noam Scheiber, The Escape Artists: How Obama’s Team Fumbled the Recovery.  I enjoyed reading this book very much, though I am not the one to judge its account of “inside baseball.”  There is plenty on Geithner and Summers.  Here is Warsh on Scheiber on Summers.

3. Matthew D. Adler, Well-Being and Fair Distribution: Beyond Cost-Benefit Analysis.  A detailed examination and defense of social welfare functions, which I have not read.

4. Tyler Cowen, Crie sua Própria Economia, in Brazilian, reviews and the like are here.

5. Alan Beattie, illustrious FT correspondent, Who’s in Charge Here?: How Governments are Failing the World Economy, eBook only, due out in March.
