Good Economics for Hard Times by Abhijit V Banerjee and Esther Duflo
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.

Few gave tiny Singapore much chance of survival when it was granted independence in 1965. How is it, then, that today the former British colonial trading post is a thriving Asian metropolis with not only the world’s number one airline, best airport, and busiest port of trade, but also the world’s fourth–highest per capita real income?

A marriage of dolls book by J.B OmukangalaKShs1,090.00Add to cart
A Marriage of Dolls is a hilarious account of events that happen in most families and marriages.
The novel points out various challenges faced by both men and women when choosing a life partner and humorously shows ups and downs in new marriages before the couple finally understands each other and learns to live together and solve their issues amicably. The dramatic events in this book are rib-cracking and portray the partners as somewhat juvenile and crazy, hence the title.
The book also explores various cultural practices, beliefs and values among the Ameru, Luhya, Akamba, Maa and Agikuyu.
A Marriage of Dolls is the second part of Torn Between, which is the author’s first book by JB Omukungala
