Product description

Review

"A provocative new book."--The Economist "A law professor and an economist argue that the way out of liberalism's impasse is to expand the role of markets, not to subdue them. . . . Together they point to a possible response to the challenges of populism and protectionism."--The Economist "One of The Economist's Best Business and Economics Books of 2018" "E. Glen Weyl & Eric Posner: One of Bloomberg Businessweek's "Bloomberg 50" Icons of 2018" "[A] bold book."---Michael Sandel, New Statesman "This is free market thinking but not as we know it."---Diane Coyle, Prospect "This system has enormous potential -- simple, fair, progressive taxes and a more dynamic economy. It would be much easier to develop new infrastructure, build new homes, buy your neighbour's garden, and pour concrete all over twee villages to build monorails or airport runways."---Tim Harford, Financial Times "It will pay the readers . . . great intellectual returns to invest significant time in studying this book very carefully. It is ambitious and bold, and I think it should excite the imagination and motivate careful scholarship and analytical rigor among both critics and those who want to pursue the line of argument laid out."---Peter Boettke, Coordination Problem "I highly recommend this book! Replacing markets by auctions (sort of). Whether you agree or not, it shows how much liberalism is able to renew itself."---Gaspard Koenig, Generation Libre "A very thought-provoking book is a bizarre fusion of ideas drawn from the classical liberal . . . . and socialist tradition(s). . . . It contains ideas . . . that really do make you think. It is a really fun book to read and of you are someone who actually likes having your suppositions and beliefs challenged, take a look at it."---Reihan Salam, National Review's The Editors podcast "What I love is just some new ideas, because the existing ideas to solve the injustices and inequalities aren't working! A must-read."---Carol Massar, Bloomberg Radio "Doesn't anybody have anything new to offer? . . . . [Y]es: . . . unleash the awesome power of markets . . . to uplift the poor . . . it just might be what the world needs now. . . . [Posner and Weyl are] smart and iconoclastic, and their book bursts with ideas like kernels of corn on a hot stove."---Peter Coy, Bloomberg Businessweek "Extremely thought provoking and clearly brilliant . . . Radical Markets certainly made me think about property, information, power. Well worth reading."---Diane Coyle, The Enlightened Economist "Radical Markets . . . could be best described as an interesting new way of looking at the subject that is sometimes called "political economy" - tackling the big questions of how markets and politics and society intersect. . . . I highly recommend Radical Markets . . . to anyone interested in these kinds of issues, and look forward to seeing the discussion that the book generates."---Vitalik Buterin, "Both a savage critique of 'techno-feudalism' and an idealistic appeal to share the fruits of our collective intelligence more fairly."---John Thornhill, Financial Times "Glen Weyl, coauthor of Radical Markets, is tackling the core issues: What does human dignity mean in a highly automated future? How can we regain agency over the data we produce? If these don't sound like economic questions, then get ready to encounter the future of economics. We can't just complain about how tech is transforming our world; we need to invent the transformation."---Jaron Lanier, Wired "Read this difficult and provocative book. It made my head hurt, and then spin. In a world where our current economic and political models are worth defending but are straining, this can only be a good thing."---Paschal Donohoe, Irish Times "An arresting if eccentric manifesto for rebooting liberalism. . . . Radical Markets is refreshing and welcome in its willingness to question received wisdom."--The Economist "In 1903, Elizabeth Magie patented the Landlord's Game, a property-based board game created with two sets of rules: a monopolist set in which the winner took all and an antimonopolist set in which all wealth was shared across society. It is revealing that only the former set of rules took off, giving birth to the bestselling game Monopoly. Radical Markets sketches a vision of how society might look if it adopted Magie's second set of rules. Unlike playing with Monopoly money, the stakes in this societal game could scarcely be higher, and the importance of this book could scarcely be greater."--Andrew G. Haldane, chief economist, Bank of England "In our difficult times, with mounting anxieties over migration, global inequality, and the cohesiveness of public culture, many are inclined to reject market-based solutions as heartless and elitist. Eric Posner and Glen Weyl argue that market-based ideas of a radically new sort (though based on neglected insights from the past) have the power to create greater equality and reciprocity. Counterintuitive and fascinating, this book will be an essential part of the debate about global issues going forward."--Martha C. Nussbaum, University of Chicago "Radical Markets thinks big and builds daring proposals, all on a unified theme: the need for maintaining competition and eliciting decentralized information, whose neglect led to the demise of planned economies. Whether you are convinced by the specific proposals or not, your confidence in your worldview may well be shattered by the depth and originality of the analysis."--Jean Tirole, Toulouse School of Economics, Nobel Laureate in Economics, and author of Economics for the Common Good "One of the most exciting books in the social sciences published in the past several years. Very original, using a consistent ideological approach, and intellectually compelling."--Branko Milanovic, author of Global Inequality "Perhaps the most ambitious attempt to rethink democracy and markets since Milton Friedman. Twenty years from now this just might be the book people are talking about. The writing is excellent, with great examples and historical detail. I admire the ambition and willingness to experiment, a rare thing in economics these days. It just might help launch a new branch of political economy."--Kenneth S. Rogoff, author of The Curse of Cash "I have always been motivated to find ways to unite the power of technology and markets with the goal of creating a more egalitarian society, and the authors of this book offer an exploration of these apparently contradictory strands."--Satya Nadella, Chief Executive Officer, Microsoft
