The Undercover Economist book by Tim Harford

Who makes most money from the demand for cappuccinos early in the morning at Waterloo Station? Why is it impossible to get a foot on the property ladder? How does the Mafia make money from laundries when street gangs pushing drugs don’t? Who really benefits from immigration? How can China, in just fifty years, go from the world’s worst famine to one of the greatest economic revolutions of all time, lifting a million people out of poverty a month?

  • The Jail Bugs book by Wahome Mutahi

    For Albert Kweyu, a tragic encounter with a child one Sunday morning leads to a jail sentence without the option of a fine. In this prison diary, Kweyu tells the sordid story of life behind bars. He lays bare the rampant corruption, moral depravity and beastility that prison conditions breed. It is indeed an indictment of a penal system that subjects human beings to living conditions and treatment that one would not wish on even the lowliest of creatures.

    Written in the humorous style that has established Wahome Mutahi as Kenya’s leading satirist, The Jail Bugs disturbs while at the same time gripping the reader from beginning to end:

  • 488 Rules for Life is Kitty Flanagan’s way of making the world a more pleasant place to live.

    Providing you with the antidote to every annoying little thing, these rules are not made to be broken. 488 Rules for Life is not a self-help book, because it’s not you who needs help, it’s other people. Whether they’re walking and texting, asphyxiating you on public transport with their noxious perfume cloud, or leaving one useless square of toilet paper on the roll, a lot of people just don’t know the rules.

    But thanks to Kitty Flanagan’s comprehensive guide to modern behaviour, our world will soon be a much better place. A place where people don’t ruin the fruit salad by putting banana in it … where your co-workers respect your olfactory system and don’t reheat their fish curry in the office microwave … where middle aged men don’t have ponytails …

    Other rules to live by include:

    1. Men must wear shorts over leggings

    The gym is no place for people to discover whether or not you are circumcised. That’s a private discussion for another place and time.

    2. Team bonding activities should be optional

    Some people love it when management decides that an afternoon of bowling or paintballing or (god forbid) karaoke will help everyone work better as a team. Others would rather be dead.

    3. Don’t ever mention your ‘happy place’

    To me, this sounds less like a pleasant, fun state of mind and more like some kind of utopian wank palace you’ve had built in the basement.

    What started as a personal joke is now a quintessential reference book with the power to change society. (Or, at least, make it a bit less irritating.)

    What people are (Kitty Flanagan is) saying about this book:

    ‘You’re welcome everyone.’

    ‘Thank god for me.’

    ‘I’d rather be sad and lonely, but right.’

    ‘There’s not actually 488 rules in here but it sure feels like it’.

  • As an Economic Hitman (EHM), John Perkins helped further American imperial interests in countries such as Ecuador, Panama, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm Chas. T. Main, he convinced underdeveloped countries to accept massive loans for infrastructure development and ensured that the projects were contracted to multinational corporations. The countries acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies.

    He tried to write this book four times but was threatened or bribed each time to halt. The events of 9/11 – a direct result of the activities of EHMs in the 1970s – finally forced him to confront the role he played himself, and to reveal the truth to the rest of the world.

    Confessions of an Economic Hit Man has become a word-of-mouth bestseller in the US. It has been called the book that finally ‘connects the dots, the book that best explains what is really going on in the world’.

  • Good Economics for Hard Times: Better Answers to Our Biggest Problems.

    Figuring out how to deal with today’s critical economic problems is perhaps the great challenge of our time. Much greater than space travel or perhaps even the next revolutionary medical breakthrough, what is at stake is the whole idea of the good life as we have known it.

    Immigration and inequality, globalization and technological disruption, slowing growth and accelerating climate change–these are sources of great anxiety across the world, from New Delhi and Dakar to Paris and Washington, DC. The resources to address these challenges are there–what we lack are ideas that will help us jump the wall of disagreement and distrust that divides us. If we succeed, history will remember our era with gratitude; if we fail, the potential losses are incalculable.

    In this revolutionary book, renowned MIT economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo take on this challenge, building on cutting-edge research in economics explained with lucidity and grace. Original, provocative, and urgent, Good Economics for Hard Times makes a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect and show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of the day. It is an extraordinary achievement, one that shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.
