Book was just hard for me to follow There was no roadmap to follow and it was not clear where the author was trying to take me nor what he was trying to convey I may have been able to understand individual examples but I continually failed to place them into the larger context In addition to that, there seems to be an overly large in my opinion emphasis on the role that individual economic theorists have played in the development of the economy as it stands today I was not able to understa Book was just hard for me to follow There was no roadmap to follow and it was not clear where the author was trying to take me nor what he was trying to convey I may have been able to understand individual examples but I continually failed to place them into the larger context In addition to that, there seems to be an overly large in my opinion emphasis on the role that individual economic theorists have played in the development of the economy as it stands today I was not able to understand enough to determine whether the author was retroactively assigning the blame for economic events that are happening in the present to economists that have created theorems in the past I personally fail to see how there is any correlation, as our actions remain our own, and the text unfortunately does not seem to shed any light on the matter I gave up on this book a couple of times Shelved under DNF did not finish But my mind would keep going back to it, thinking about the things it brought up, and I couldn t help but want to readSo I d fish it back from my DNF bin and push on I was rewarded with a better understanding of what the author was getting at, and a new way of looking at the world.So, let me first talk a little about the reason why I thought this belonged to the DNF bin I felt that the author wasn t particul I gave up on this book a couple of times Shelved under DNF did not finish But my mind would keep going back to it, thinking about the things it brought up, and I couldn t help but want to readSo I d fish it back from my DNF bin and push on I was rewarded with a better understanding of what the author was getting at, and a new way of looking at the world.So, let me first talk a little about the reason why I thought this belonged to the DNF bin I felt that the author wasn t particularly clear on what he was trying to get at It felt like a general attack on loosely related ideas that he lumped together as economic thought , from a hodgepodge of people whom I had not myself considered economists It felt a little like the author assembled all these people and ideas to have an antagonist against which he could attack, and that he was hugely overstating the amount of influence any one of these individuals could have had By the end of the book, I don t think he really changed my impression of the earlier chapters.Still, it couldn t have been that terrible because I found myself constantly going back to the book and wondering what else he had to say I found the later chapters really good, especially Chapter 7, which I highlighted like crazy Here s a gem early in the chapter, when talking about how economic thinking has led to using pricing as policy Since I can be predictably manipulated by incentives, it cannot be said that my decisions depend only on myself, not on external factors Nor am I self directed Incentive schemes, then, might work just as intended by their designers, with no crowding out but still be morally wrong because they conflict with our values of liberty and autonomy When a judge is offered and accepts a financial incentive to let a guilty person go free, this is bribery, and is obviously harmful That both the briber and the judge might be better off is irrelevant.Overall, a poor book at the start but one that ends strongly, with plenty of mind changing material This is an interesting and educating read, but pretty hard to grasp if you are not already familiar with the mentioned theories This book is so packed with information that it s hard to read at one go, so you will have to put this down and digest what you have read The ending seems somewhat abrupt, and Aldred doesn t bring up any research to back up his claims so it falls a bit flat especially after such a great beginning. All economics, business and public policy students should read this This book really challenged a lot of the ingrained classical economic theories assumptions that I have been exposed to, and Jonathan Aldred does so by shedding light on their implications onto our realities by using real life events and making readers question these repercussions e.g game theories and its dangerous effects on military security strategies, Coase theories and its impacts onto law and economics arguments, wealt All economics, business and public policy students should read this This book really challenged a lot of the ingrained classical economic theories assumptions that I have been exposed to, and Jonathan Aldred does so by shedding light on their implications onto our realities by using real life events and making readers question these repercussions e.g game theories and its dangerous effects on military security strategies, Coase theories and its impacts onto law and economics arguments, wealth maximization is justice , behavioral Econs onto financial markets etc Though some chapters weren t super mind blowing most likely due to my academic exposure to related topics already , I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book nonetheless Having some exposure to basic Econs would make this book an easier read Keynes quip that every person who considers themselves a practical person of action is in thrall to some dead economist or other Economic thinking contains values and shapes our view of the permissible Economics in the mid twentieth century the author pins it on Austrian School, Chicago Boys, and Strangelovian characters at the Rand Corporation but the villain is homo economicus becoming the paragon of ethics is the problem We abstracted away a lot of moral strictures in the pursuit of being Keynes quip that every person who considers themselves a practical person of action is in thrall to some dead economist or other Economic thinking contains values and shapes our view of the permissible Economics in the mid twentieth century the author pins it on Austrian School, Chicago Boys, and Strangelovian characters at the Rand Corporation but the villain is homo economicus becoming the paragon of ethics is the problem We abstracted away a lot of moral strictures in the pursuit of being good value maximizers that we took off a lot of guardrails that were out of bounds in simpler times I get the point when you shoehorn people into the role of little Pac mans gobbling up utility points of money you get a perverse idea of what is acceptable in law and politics Still, while I agree on the perversity of the current dispensation and respect some older taboos but I can t help thinking this is the same kind of argument a bible thumper can make on novel ideas like gay marriage because they are recent innovations An economic critique is needed but I don t think a decline narrative is an apt one from a better time economically As much as I loathe the economic players involved in neoliberalism it is not taboo breaking that bothers me buton what they want to do with their economic thinking and on whose behalf they work for that bothers me It Is Going To Change The Way In Which We Understand Many Modern Debates About Economics, Politics, And Society Ha Joon Chang, Author Of Things They Don T Tell You About Capitalism Over The Past Fifty Years, The Way We Value What Is Good And Right Has Changed Dramatically Behaviour That To Our Grandparents Generation Might Have Seemed Stupid, Harmful Or Simply Wicked Now Seems Rational, Natural, Woven Into The Very Logic Of Things And, Asserts Jonathan Aldred In This Revelatory New Book, It S Economics That S To Blame Licence To Be Bad Tells The Story Of How A Group Of Economics Theorists Changed Our World, And How A Handful Of Key Ideas, From Free Riding To Nudge, Seeped Into Our Decision Making And, Indeed, Almost All Aspects Of Our Lives Aldred Reveals The Extraordinary Hold Of Economics On Our Morals And Values Economics Has Corrupted Us But If This Hidden Transformation Is So Recent, It Can Be Reversed Licence To Be Bad Shows Us Where To BeginOver The Past Fifty Years, The Way We Value What Is Good And Right Has Changed Dramatically Behaviour That To Our Grandparents Generation Might Have Seemed Stupid, Harmful Or Simply Wicked Now Seems Rational, Natural, Woven Into The Very Logic Of Things And, Asserts Jonathan Aldred In This Revelatory New Book, It S Economics That S To Blame Licence To Be Bad Tells The Story Of How A Group Of Economics Theorists Changed Our World, And How A Handful Of Key Ideas, From Free Riding To Nudge, Seeped Into Our Decision Making And, Indeed, Almost All Aspects Of Our Lives Aldred Reveals The Extraordinary Hold Of Economics On Our Morals And Values Economics Has Corrupted Us But If This Hidden Transformation Is So Recent, It Can Be Reversed Licence To Be Bad Shows Us Where To Begin
