Broken Symmetry: Creating My Own Create Your Own Economy

July 13, 2009

In “Creating My Own Create Your Own Economy“, Michael F. Martin praises Tyler Cowen’s Create Your Own Economy as:

…chock full of creative insights into what might be called an alternative economic vision of social life. I say “alternative” because until recently most academic economists had confined their interests to finance rather than culture, although Cowen is careful to trace the threads of Adam Smith, F.A. Hayek, and Thomas Schelling (among others) from which his unique vision is woven together… his understanding of group behavior and consumption are correspondingly richer with local and temporary detail than most economic analyses of culture.
