The description for this book, Economics for the Common Good, will be forthcoming.


Tirole, a Nobel Prize-winning French economist, explains in straightforward language what academic economists do, how they think about society and human behavior, and what advice they tend to offer governments about some of the biggest challenges they face. --Foreign Affairs Economics for the Common Good offers an ambitious yet accessible summary of his ideas on the proper role of economists and the value of their ideas in informing government, business and social life. . . . Mr. Tirole has a patient, explanatory style. But when riled, he lashes out. --Philip Delves Boughton, Wall Street Journal Jean Tirole, Winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics Selected for Bloomberg View's Must-Reads of 2017: Monopolies, Sexism and Economics One of Bloomberg's Best Books of 2017 One of Financial Times ( Best Books of 2017: Economics One of Project Syndicate's Best Reads in 2017 (chosen by J. Bradford DeLong) One of the Times Higher Education Books of the Year 2017, chosen by Sir Anton Muscatelli One of the Microsoft Best Business Books of 2017 Longlisted for the 2017 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award French economist Jean Tirole spells out the usefulness of rigorous economic thinking for society in deep, yet accessible, language in his book Economics for the Common Good. The strength of the book is in its breadth. It brings clarity and simplicity to many complex topics covering various fields in economics ranging from climate change, labor market laws, and the global financial crisis to the euro crisis and the gig economy. Many illustrative examples . . . make the book accessible, and each chapter can be read on its own. . . . Many readers will benefit from reading this great book, rich with insights into a broad spectrum of policy questions. --Markus Brunnermeier, Finance & Development e, Winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics Longlisted for the 2017 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 'Economists must . . . with humility and conviction, harness economics for the common good.' That is the last sentence of the new book by Jean Tirole, winner of the 2014 Nobel Memorial Prize for economics. Economics for the Common Good has a great deal of humility, a fair amount of conviction and a sincere commitment to improving the world. --Edward Hadas, Reuters Breaking Views As I had the privilege of helping prepare the English edition, I've read it with careful attention, and most appreciated Tirole's ability to crystallise complicated issues in a straightforward way, combining surgical analysis with very clear explanation. This is too rare a skill among economists. --The Enlightened Economist Economics for the Common Good is an ambitious book. As the title suggests, it is a response to the crisis of the economics profession, whose credibility was badly damaged by the financial turmoil of 2008. Though not the first book to address this, more than any earlier attempt it manages to balance a constructive critique of economists with a strong defence of the subject they study. --Martin Sandbu, Financial Times Longlisted for the 2017 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award
