Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius

New book on the history of economics by Sylvia Nassar, author of “A Beautiful Mind”:

In a sweeping narrative, the author of the megabestseller A Beautiful Mind takes us on a journey through modern history with the men and women who changed the lives of every single person on the planet. It’s the epic story of the making of modern economics, and of how economics rescued mankind from squalor and deprivation by placing its material fate in its own hands rather than in Fate.

  3. So she's basically building a career out of turning sociopaths into heroes?
