How to solve the world's trickiest problems - terrorism, climate change, financial insanity and more. In the tradition of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point, Reframe brings a fresh perspective to our toughest political problems. This is a book by a young Australian thinker that turns conventional thinking on its head. Why can't we eliminate terrorism by killing terrorists? Why can't we resolve immigration tensions by building higher fences? Why can't we learn anything about climate change by talking about the weather? And what do fishermen in Turkey have to teach us about international relations? Economics consultant and Rhodes scholar Eric Knight explains how a change of focus can reveal a solution that was lying just outside your frame of vision. This is an optimistic, lucid, original book by a literary star in the making.
'An original and vital contribution to understanding politics.' - Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist.
