"Economics Rules, by one of the world's truly great
economists, describes in fascinating and incredibly well-written
detail what it means to be an economist. In so doing it explains
why, and when, economists often get it right, but also why they
also frequently go astray." -- George Akerlof, Nobel laureate in
"The best economists make the best methodologists, and Dani Rodrik is both. His Economics Rules is the single best source for explaining the strengths and weaknesses of economics to an outside audience." -- Tyler Cowen, George Mason University, author of The Great Stagnation
"In Economics Rules, enjoyment enhances learning, with lessons for economists and non-economists alike-indeed, ten commandments for each. The book is a page-turner with every page carrying an important and memorable take-away." -- Margaret Levi, director, Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University
