Reviews

"The 2008 crash created not just a crisis in the economy, but also a crisis in economic thinking. Ideas of market stability and efficiency lost their value faster than a sub-prime mortgage. In this compelling and lively account, Mark Buchanan tells the story of the new ideas that are revolutionizing the field. We may not be able to perfectly forecast the economic weather, but we can be better prepared for storms to come."--Eric Beinhocker, Executive Director of the Institute for New Economic Thinking at Oxford University and author of "The Origin of Wealth"
"A lucid, absorbing story"--"New Scientist"" ""The author's stimulating deconstruction of contemporary economic theory parallels a treatment of major positive developments in physical sciences and pays due respect to the functions of government and law."--"Kirkus Reviews
