That is the new book by Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan, with the subtitle How People Shape Them — and They Shape Us. I have not had it in my paws during my travels but everything they write is good.
Here are the authors on Goethe’s second price auction. And on the successes of food bank networks. And on the notion that if you have to argue economics, you already have lost the debate. Sad!
Gillian Tett very much liked the book.
