Tag Archives: Darwin Economy


I’m on vacation—a family vacation. So there won’t be any posts till the new year. In the meantime, I’ve been doing some reading, and I’ll do some reviewing when I get back. These three books are on the list:

Menzie Chinn & Jeffrey Frieden, Lost Decades: The Making of America’s Debt Crisis and the Long Recovery (2011).

Robert Frank, The Darwin Economy: Liberty, Competition, and the Common Good (2011).

Michael Lewis, Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World (a gift from my daughter Anne).

All three are very good reads, and often immensely perceptive.
