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 i Phishing for Phools i 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 Rather than being essentially benign and always creating the greater good markets are inherently filled with tricks and traps and will phish us as phools br br i Phishing for Phools i therefore strikes a radically new direction in economics based on the intuitive idea that markets both give and take away Akerlof and Shiller bring this idea to life through dozens of stories that show how phishing affects everyone in almost every walk of life We spend our money up to the limit and then worry about how to pay the next month s bills The financial system soars then crashes We are attracted more than we know by advertising Our political system is distorted by money We pay too much for gym memberships cars houses and credit cards Drug companies ingeniously market pharmaceuticals that do us little good and sometimes are downright dangerous br br i Phishing for Phools i explores the central role of manipulation and deception in fascinating detail in each of these areas and many more It thereby explains a paradox why at a time when we are better off than ever before in history all too many of us are leading lives of quiet desperation At the same time the book tells stories of individuals who have stood against economic trickery and how it can be reduced through greater knowledge reform and regulation, A collection of essays exploring the consequences of making non standard economic assumptions Breaking away from traditional economic theory they cover a wide range of microeconomic and macroeconomic fields as well as anthropology psychology and sociology, br br Identity Economics provides an important and compelling new way to understand human behavior revealing how our identities and not just economic incentives influence our decisions In economist Rachel Kranton wrote future Nobel Prize winner George Akerlof a letter insisting that his most recent paper was wrong Identity she argued was the missing element that would help to explain why people facing the same economic circumstances would make different choices This was the beginning of a fourteen year collaboration and of Identity Economics br The authors explain how our conception of who we are and who we want to be may shape our economic lives more than any other factor affecting how hard we work and how we learn spend and save Identity economics is a new way to understand people s decisions at work at school and at home With it we can better appreciate why incentives like stock options work or don t why some schools succeed and others don t why some cities and towns don t invest in their futures and much much more br br Identity Economics bridges a critical gap in the social sciences It brings identity and norms to economics People s notions of what is proper and what is forbidden and for whom are fundamental to how hard they work and how they learn spend and save Thus people s identity their conception of who they are and of who they choose to be may be the most important factor affecting their economic lives And the limits placed by society on people s identity can also be crucial determinants of their economic well being br, For twenty years since the publication of his seminal paper The Market for Lemons George A Akerlof s work has changed the way we see economics This collection of Akerlof s most important papers provide both an introduction to Akerlof s work and a grounding in modern economics Divided into two broad areas micro and macroeconomics they cover the economics of information the theory of unemployment macroeconomic equilibria the demand for money psychology and economics and the nature of discrimination and other social issues Akerlof s substantial introduction to this volume tells the story of these papers connecting them and showing how his later work has built upon his early contributions in many cases improving their arguments their subtlety and their usefulness today br
