Shiller’s FiveBooks Interview

The Browser har gjort en FiveBooks Interview med Robert Shiller och han har som vanligt mycket intressant att säga. De fem böcker han framhåller är:

  • Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments
  • The Passions and The Interests: Political Arguments for Capitalism Before its Triumph – Albert O. Hirschman
  • Nudge – Richard H Thaler and Cass Sunstein
  • Fault Lines – Raghuram Rajan
  • Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer and Turned its Back on the Middle Class – Paul Pierson and Jacob Hacker.

”I think that our economic system reflects our understanding of humankind, and that understanding has been developing, with especial rapidity lately. You have to understand people first before you can understand how to devise an economic system for them. And I think our understanding of people has been accelerating over the last century, or even half-century.”

Jag kommer ihåg Albert O. Hirschmans bok The Rhetoric of Reaction från tidigt 90-tal. En mycket bra bok.
