really liked it
bookshelves: pop-economics
Read in June, 2011

Main thesis: The writer demonstrates that behavioural economics shows us that people are not always rational in their choces; and also shows how income gaps make the 'pie smaller for everyone'.

High readability. Although the author's political preferences are directly revealed, they don't seem to colour the arguments too much; the objectivity behind the arguments is pretty much intact.

The arguments are a mix of technical and behavioural economics. Some points are repeated perhaps too much throughout the book.
