‘Wonderfully refreshing . . . A must read’ Thomas Piketty

In this revolutionary book, prize-winning economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day. From immigration to inequality, slowing growth to accelerating climate change, we have the resources to address the challenges we face but we are so often blinded by ideology.

Original, provocative and urgent, Good Economics for Hard Times offers the new thinking that we need. It builds on cutting-edge research in economics – and years of exploring the most effective solutions to alleviate extreme poverty – to make a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect. A much-needed antidote to polarized discourse, this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.

  • Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need To Know About Global Politics


    Geography shapes not only our history, but where we’re headed…

    All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to follow world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements – but if you don’t know geography, you’ll never have the full picture.

    If you’ve ever wondered why Putin is so obsessed with Crimea, why the USA was destined to become a global superpower, or why China’s power base continues to expand ever outwards, the answers are all here.

    In ten chapters and ten maps, Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential insight into one of the major factors that determines world history.

    It’s time to put the ‘geo’ back into geopolitics.


    Ten maps; ten chapters:

    Russia * China * United States of America * Latin America * the Middle East * Africa * India and Pakistan * Europe * Japan and Korea * the Arctic

    ‘Like having a light shone on your understanding… I can’t think of another book that explains the world situation so well.’ – Nicolas Lezard, Evening Standard

    ‘Sharp insights into the way geography shapes the choices of world leaders.’ – Gideon Rachman, Financial Times
