After the success of Freakonomics, 2007 looks like being a bumper year for popular economics books. Five to look out for:
- Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them by Philippe Legrain (UK)
- The Soulful Science by Diane Coyle (UK US)
- More Sex is Safer Sex by Steven Landsburg (UK US)
- (As yet untitled) by Tyler Cowen
With the exception of Tyler’s book, which I expect to be excellent but have not read, I have enjoyed them all. I won’t say too much more here because I hope the FT will ask me to review a few of them. But read, and enjoy – the publication dates are even spread across the year to assist you in delaying your gratification without the need for a commitment mechanism.
Merry Christmas to all!
