Greetings from Washington where we did two launches on ‘An Economic Theory of Greed, Love, Groups and Networks’. The launches went very well, thanks for asking. Due to its success, the book has gone kindle.
I was just alerted to the video that UNSW put out on a discussion we had with Tim Harcourt (the ‘airport economist‘) on whether our attempt in this book to get at rough rules of thumb that include a spot for love, groups, power, etc., should be seen as an act of economic imperialism or rather an economic attempt to acknowledge the importance of these elements in understanding our societies by distilling them to simplified rules of thumb. Judge for yourself: see the youtube video here!
