內容簡介

  【2019諾貝爾經濟學獎得主】

  解決今日世界上最迫切棘手的社會與政治問題,從導正經濟學,走向正途開始!

  過往十餘年的經濟發展,讓人們忍不住懷疑經濟學家們的聰明智慧是不是休眠了:放任世界逐步走向下一次的大蕭條,只會彼此爭吵而沒有具體作為,對於希臘或歐元區的困境,也默不作聲,不再成為今日問題重重的世界,我們可以信賴依靠的指引。

  在這本充滿企圖心,挑戰既有學術框架的作品中,兩位2019諾貝爾經濟學獎最新得主Abhijit V. Banerjee 與Esther Duflo,提出傳統西方中心的思維是最關鍵的肇因,讓我們無法釐清全球化之下,那些身處新開興區域的人們,究竟正遭逢什麼困境:簡單來說,好經濟學被糟糕地誤用了。這本精準但易懂的作品包含了我們這個時代最重要的各個課題:移民、失業、成長、自由貿易、政治分裂、福利政策。兩位作者揭穿並闡明那些潛藏於當下認知的錯誤經濟學預設:

  ✦為什麼移民沒有遵循供給與需求的原則
  ✦為什麼自由貿易會造成失業率上升但薪資下降
  ✦為什麼宏觀經濟學傾向曲解數據來符合經濟學模型
  ✦為什麼沒有人能夠真正解釋成長究竟如何與在什麼時後發生
  ✦為什麼經濟學家預設人們不會改變他們的決定,這個假設讓世界的分化更嚴重

  《Good Economics for Hard Times》提供我們當下最需要的心思維。立基在最新的經濟學研究成果,搭配兩位多年在世界各地,實務的觀察與經驗,投身具體的政策改革解決貧窮問題,提出一個充滿力量的新經濟學論點,以對症下藥的解決提案,打造一個充滿同情心但有尊嚴的社會。是這分裂極化的世界迫切需要的宣言,認清問題的病灶與所需的改變,讓經濟學重拾其智慧,幫助我們一同跨越挑戰。(文/博客來編譯)

  Two prize-winning economists show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day

  The experience of the last decade has not been kind to the image of economists: asleep at the wheel (perhaps with the foot on the gas pedal) in the run-up to the great recession, squabbling about how to get out of it, tone-deaf in discussions of the plight of Greece or the Euro area; they seem to have lost the ability to provide reliable guidance on the great problems of the day.

  In this ambitious, provocative book Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how traditional western-centric thinking has failed to explain what is happening to people in a newly globalized world: in short Good Economics has been done badly. This precise but accessible book covers many of the most essential issues of our day--including migration, unemployment, growth, free trade, political polarization, and welfare. Banerjee and Duflo will confound and clarify the presumptions of our times, such as:

  Why migration doesn’t follow the law of supply and demand
  Why trade liberalization can drive unemployment up and wages down
  Why macroeconomists like to bend the data to fit the model
  Why nobody can really explain why and when growth happens
  Why economists’ assumption that people don’t change their minds has made has made polarization worse
  Why quite often it doesn’t take a village, especially if the villagers aren’t that nice

  In doing so, they seek to reclaim this essential terrain, and to offer readers an economist’s view of the great issues of the day--one that is candid about the complexities, the zones of ignorance, and the areas of genuine disagreement.

Review

  "Not all economists wear ties and think like bankers. In their wonderfully refreshing book, Banerjee and Duflo delve into impressive areas of new research questioning conventional views about issues ranging from trade to top income taxation and mobility, and offer their own powerful vision of how we can grapple with them. A must-read."―Thomas Piketty, professor, Paris School of Economics, and author of Capital in the Twenty-first Century

  "A magnificent achievement, and the perfect book for our time. Banerjee and Duflo brilliantly illuminate the largest issues of the day, including immigration, trade, climate change, and inequality. If you read one policy book this year -- heck, this decade - read this one."―Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor, Harvard University, and author, How Change Happens

  "Banerjee and Duflo have shown brilliantly how the best recent research in economics can be used to tackle the most pressing social issues: unequal economic growth, climate change, lack of trust in public action. Their book is an essential wake-up call for intelligent and immediate action!"―Emmanuel Saez, professor of economics at UC Berkeley

  "One of the things that makes economics interesting and difficult is the need to balance the neat generalities of theory against the enormous variety of deviations from standard assumptions: lags, rigidities, simple inattention, society's irrepressible tendency to alter what are sometimes thought of as bedrock characteristics of economic behavior. Banerjee and Duflo are masters of this terrain. They have digested hundreds of lab experiments, field experiments, statistical studies, and common observation to find regularities and irregularities that shape important patterns of economic behavior and need to be taken into account when we think about central issues of policy analysis. They do this with simple logic and plain English. Their book is as stimulating as it gets."―Robert Solow, Nobel Prize winner and emeritus professor of economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

  "In these tumultuous times when many bad policies and ideas are bandied around in the name of economics, common sense-and good economics-is even more sorely needed than usual. This wide-ranging and engaging book by two leading economists puts the record straight and shows that we have much to learn from sensible economic ideas, and not just about immigration, trade, automation, and growth, but also about the environment and political discourse. A must-read."―Daron Acemoglu, Elizabeth and James Killian Professor of Economics, MIT, and coauthor of Why Nations Fail

  "Banerjee and Duflo move beyond the simplistic forecasts that abound in the Twittersphere and in the process reframe the role of economics. Their dogged optimism about the potential of economics research to deliver makes for an informative and uplifting read."―Pinelopi Goldberg, Elihu Professor of Economics, Yale University, and chief economist of the World Bank Group

  "In Good Economics for Hard Times, Banerjee and Duflo, two of the world's great economists, parse through what economists have to say about today's most difficult challenges-immigration, job losses from automation and trade, inequality, tribalism and prejudice, and climate change. The writing is witty and irreverent, always informative but never dull. Banerjee and Duflo are the teachers you always wished for but never had, and this book is an essential guide for the great policy debates of our times."―Raghuram Rajan, Katherine Dusak Miller Distinguished Service Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business
