Marginalia

Post-Christmas presents

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

and, um,

  • The Undercover Economist, paperback edition (UK US)

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!
