Whether true or false, stories like these - transmitted by word of mouth, by the news media, and increasingly by social media - drive the economy by driving our decisions about how and where to invest, how much to spend and save, and more.

But despite the obvious importance of such stories, most economists have paid little attention to them. Narrative Economics sets out to change that.

Akerlof, Robert J. Shiller Narrated by: Bronson Pinchot Length: 7 hrs and 11 mins Unabridged 4 out of 5 stars 25 Performance 4 out of 5 stars 23 Story 4 out of 5 stars 23 Ever since Adam Smith, the central teaching of economics has been that free markets provide us with material well-being, as if by an invisible hand. In Phishing for Phools, Nobel Prize-winning economists George Akerlof and Robert Shiller deliver a fundamental challenge to this insight, arguing that markets harm as well as help us.

As long as there is profit to be made, sellers will systematically exploit our psychological weaknesses and our ignorance through manipulation and deception. Ganser Length: 13 hrs and 35 mins Unabridged 4. Thaler has spent his career studying the radical notion that the central agents in the economy are humans - predictable, error-prone individuals.

Misbehaving is his arresting, frequently hilarious account of the struggle to bring an academic discipline back down to earth - and change the way we think about economics, ourselves, and our world.

Thaler, Cass R. Sunstein Narrated by: Sean Pratt Length: 11 hrs and 26 mins Unabridged 4 out of 5 stars Performance 4 out of 5 stars Story 4 out of 5 stars Every day, we make decisions on topics ranging from personal investments to schools for our children to the meals we eat to the causes we champion.

Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. The reason, the authors explain, is that, being human, we are all susceptible to various biases that can lead us to blunder. Our mistakes make us poorer and less healthy; we often make bad decisions involving education, personal finance, health care, mortgages and credit cards, the family, and even the planet itself.

George Akerlof

Print The Essence Economics has long too often been based on models that lack bases for real-world application. It is even sometimes said that its normative claims make it more of a religion than a social science. Why the disconnect? It is in part due to the rigid models used to predict human behavior. Economics has long viewed humans as absolutely rational decision-making machines. Though science now teaches us that cognition and affect reason and emotion always interact. So it would be foolish be make a prediction in economics without considering some of the ramifications of emotional factors on decision making; this is the goal of the book.

Animal Spirits : How Human Psychology Drives the Economy, and Why It Matters for Global Capitalism

Finance Back cover copy "This book is a sorely needed corrective. Animal Spirits is an important--maybe even a decisive--contribution at a difficult juncture in macroeconomic theory. Solow, Nobel Prize-winning economist "This book is dynamite. It is a powerful, cogent, and convincing call for a fundamental reevaluation of basic economic principles. It presents a refreshingly new understanding of important economic phenomena that standard economic theory has been unable to explain convincingly. Animal Spirits should help set in motion an intellectual revolution that will change the way we think about economic depressions, unemployment, poverty, financial crises, real estate swings, and much more. Snower, president of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy "Animal Spirits makes a very timely and significant contribution to the development of a new dominant paradigm for economics that acknowledges the imperfections of human decision making, a need which the panic in financial markets makes all too apparent.

Animal Spirits

His father was a Swedish immigrant. Contributions to economics[ edit ] "The Market for Lemons" and asymmetric information[ edit ] Akerlof is perhaps best known for his article, " The Market for Lemons : Quality Uncertainty and the Market Mechanism", published in Quarterly Journal of Economics in , in which he identified certain severe problems that afflict markets characterized by asymmetric information , the paper for which he was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize. Identity economics[ edit ] In his latest work, Akerlof and collaborator Rachel Kranton of Duke University introduce social identity into formal economic analysis, creating the field of identity economics. Drawing on social psychology and many fields outside of economics, Akerlof and Kranton argue that individuals do not have preferences only over different goods and services. They also adhere to social norms for how different people should behave.
