The Undercover Economist TIM HARFORD

  • Aug 28, 2014 · 7:00 PM

TIM HARFORD: Who really makes money from fair trade coffee? Why is it impossible to buy a decent second hand car? How do the Mafia make money from laundries when street gangs pushing drugs don’t? Who really benefits from immigration? Looking at familiar situations in unfamiliar ways, The Undercover Economist is a fresh explanation of the fundamental principles of the modern economy, illuminated by examples from the booming skyscrapers of Shanghai to the sleepy canals of Bruges

Full title: The Undercover Economist: Exposing why the rich are rich, the poor are poor and why you can never buy a decent used car
