Description

<p>"A remarkable use of parables and dialogues to convey economic intuitions. This should be mandatory reading for anyone who wants to understand this branch of applied philosophy we call economics."<b>--Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of <i>The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable</i></b></p><p>"This is a great story about human, social, and economic betterment brought about by the forces of spontaneous coordination. It's also about justice and there's a warm ending. Read and enjoy."<b>--Vernon Smith, Nobel Prize-winning economist</b></p><p>"<i>The Price of Everything</i> illuminates the astonishing economic world we live in. This book could change your life--reading it will give you a sense of wonder about the everyday marvels that are all around us."<b>--Paul Romer, Stanford University</b></p><p>"<i>The Price of Everything</i> is sensationally good fiction and sensationally good economics."<b>--Deirdre N. McCloskey, author of <i>The Bourgeois Virtues</i></b></p>
