Críticas:

"[Cowen's] eclectic tastes and sophistication shine through as he grapples with the subjectivist foundations of economics."--Anthony J. Evans, City A.M.

"Provides the reader with insight on how to overcome the problem of motivation and as well as how to make more effective choices. In this respect, Cowen has written what might be regarded as an economics self-help book... This book is not about how to do what Cowen does in a literal sense; instead, it is about how to apply one of the main principles of political economy to achieve a richer, more fulfilling life."--The Journal of Social, Political, and Economic Studies

"Cowen's brilliant opus on applying economic principles to everyday life... There are so many areas in which one's life could be made infinitely better by the application of basic economic principles."--Megan McArdle, Atlantic Online

Reseña del editor:

The creator of the marginalrevolution.com economics blog demonstrates how to use hidden economic principles behind everyday situations to reach one's personal goals, from reading a classic novel to finding a dentist, in a guide that demonstrates how to make the most of non-monetary incentives. Reprint.

Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, India, 2008. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. One of America s most respected economists presents a quirky, incisive romp through everyday life that reveals how you can turn economic reasoning to your advantage--often when you least expect it to be relevant.Like no other economist, Tyler Cowen shows how economic notions--such as incentives, signals, and markets--apply far more widely than merely to the decisions of social planners, governments, and big business. What does economic theory say about ordering from a menu? Or attracting the right mate? Or controlling people who talk too much in meetings? Or dealing with your dentist? With a wryly amusing voice, in chapters such as How to Control the World, The Basics and How to Control the World, Knowing When to Stop Cowen reveals the hidden economic patterns behind everyday situations so you can get more of what you really want. Readers will also gain less selfish insights into how to be a good partner, neighbor and even citizen of the world. For instance, what is the best way to give to charity? The chapter title How to Save the World--More Christmas Presents Won t Help makes a point that is every bit as personal as it is global. Incentives are at the core of an economic approach to the world, but they don t just come in cash. In fact, money can be a disincentive. Cowen shows why, for example, it doesn t work to pay your kids to do the dishes. Other kinds of incentives--like making sure family members know they will be admired if they respect you--can work. Another non-monetary incentive? Try having everyone stand up in your next meeting if you don t want anyone to drone on. Deeply felt incentives like pride in one s work or a passing smile from a loved one, can be the most powerful of all, even while they operate alongside more mundane rewards such as money and free food. Discover Your Inner Economist is an introduction to the science of economics that shows it to be built on notions that are already within all of us. While the implications of those ideas lead to Cowen s often counterintuitive advice, their wisdom is presented in ordinary examples taken from home life, work life, and even vacation life. How do you get a good guide in a Moroccan bazaar?. Nº de ref. del artículo: BTE9780452289635
