Summary
"The Truth about Markets examines the big questions of economics - why some countries and peoples are rich, and others poor; why businesses succeed and fail; the scope of markets and their limits. Witty yet profound, immersed in the most recent economic thinking yet completely accessible, it is both a tract for our times and a text for a new political economy."--BOOK JACKET
