The Undercover Economist


In what was a rather new experience for me, I listened to an audio book version of The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford over the last few weeks.

As someone with no formal background in economics, but a lot of informal knowledge of it (an unavoidable side-effect of have an economics professor as a father), I really found it interesting to listen to this. Harford begins everything from first principles, and yet gives convincing and complex arguments. He also does this from a rather well-balanced perspective.

While I don’t agree with all the conclusions reached, I have certainly gained some insights into how the world works that I will carry with me for some time to come.
