“A rational man” – profile in The Bookseller

Late last year, Neill Denny of The Bookseller wrote a nice profile of me. You can read it all if you’d like, or here is an extract:

“Rational choice theory is the way most economists see the world; the interesting bit is when they use that and they say: ‘Let’s talk about drugs, let’s talk about marriage’, in the same way that they would talk about buying a cup of coffee,”he says.

The chapters have alluring titles such as “The Dangers of Rational Racism”and “Is Divorce Under-rated?”Each is pretty self-contained, stuffed full of some big ideas, but they link together to form an overall whole.
