✏Economics in Two Lessons Book Summary : A masterful introduction to the key ideas behind the successes—and failures—of free-market economics Since 1946, Henry Hazlitt’s bestselling Economics in One Lesson has popularized the belief that economics can be boiled down to one simple lesson: market prices represent the true cost of everything. But one-lesson economics tells only half the story. It can explain why markets often work so well, but it can’t explain why they often fail so badly—or what we should do when they stumble. As Nobel Prize–winning economist Paul Samuelson quipped, “When someone preaches ‘Economics in one lesson,’ I advise: Go back for the second lesson.” In Economics in Two Lessons, John Quiggin teaches both lessons, offering a masterful introduction to the key ideas behind the successes—and failures—of free markets. Economics in Two Lessons explains why market prices often fail to reflect the full cost of our choices to society as a whole. For example, every time we drive a car, fly in a plane, or flick a light switch, we contribute to global warming. But, in the absence of a price on carbon emissions, the costs of our actions are borne by everyone else. In such cases, government action is needed to achieve better outcomes. Two-lesson economics means giving up the dogmatism of laissez-faire as well as the reflexive assumption that any economic problem can be solved by government action, since the right answer often involves a mixture of market forces and government policy. But the payoff is huge: understanding how markets actually work—and what to do when they don’t. Brilliantly accessible, Economics in Two Lessons unlocks the essential issues at the heart of any economic question.

✏The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Information Book Summary : Information and communication technology occupies a central place in the modern world, with society becoming increasingly dependent on it every day. It is therefore unsurprising that it has become a growing subject area in contemporary philosophy, which relies heavily on informational concepts. The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Information is an outstanding reference source to the key topics and debates in this exciting subject and is the first collection of its kind. Comprising over thirty chapters by a team of international contributors the Handbook is divided into four parts: basic ideas quantitative and formal aspects natural and physical aspects human and semantic aspects. Within these sections central issues are examined, including probability, the logic of information, informational metaphysics, the philosophy of data and evidence, and the epistemic value of information. The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Information is essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, computer science and communication studies.

✏It Didn t Have to be this Way Book Summary : The key to understanding economics The economic crisis that erupted in 2008 was not inevitable. Proponents of the Austrian School of economics have repeatedly demonstrated that a boom-and-bust cycle is unnatural and unnecessary. Unfortunately, few people have even a cursory understanding of Austrian economics--a problem economist Harry C. Veryser tackles in It Didn't Have to Be This Way. Veryser provides a clear and persuasive introduction to the Austrian School and its major figures, such as Ludwig von Mises and F. A. Hayek, and before them Carl Menger. He shows why the Austrian view--emphasising individual human action and markets free from government intrusion--offers the surest path back to peace and prosperity. Best introduction to poorly understood Austrian economics: Veryser brilliantly explains a vitally important school of economic thought that many people know nothing about. This book corrects misconceptions and makes a convincing case why the Austrian view offers the best approach to economics. Explains current economic crisis: Veryser shows how Austrian economics predicted exactly the kind of collapse that occurred in 2008, and why a boom-and-bust cycle is unnatural and unnecessary.

✏On The Wealth of Nations Book Summary : A New York Times Bestseller As P. J. O'Rourke says, 'It's as if Smith, having proved that we can all have more money, then went on to prove that money doesn't buy happiness. And it doesn't. It rents it.' Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations was first published in 1776 and almost instantly was recognized as fundamental to an understanding of economics. It was also recognized as being really long and as P. J. O'Rourke points out, to understand The Wealth of Nations, the cornerstone of free-market thinking and a book that shapes the world to this day, you also need to peruse Smith's earlier doorstopper,The Theory of Moral Sentiments. But now you don't have to read either, because P. J. has done it for you. In this hilarious work P. J. shows us why Smith is still relevant, why what seems obvious now was once revolutionary, and how the division of labour, freedom of trade and pursuit of self-interest espoused by Smith are not only vital to the welfare of mankind, they're funny too. He goes on to establish that far from being an avatar of capitalism, Smith was actually a moralist of liberty. As P. J. says, 'It's as if Smith, having proved that we can all have more money, then went on to prove that money doesn't buy happiness. And it doesn't. It rents it.'
