In addition to our regular stream of scholarly readings (blog posts, book reviews, essays, law review articles, etc.), below are some of the books we are reading this month (updated 11/13):
- Tyler Cowen, Stubborn Attachments (Stripe). This will be a re-read for us, as we read a previous (unpublished) edition of this manuscript two years ago or so.
- Steven E. Landsburg, Can You Outsmart an Economist? (Mariner). The title of this book is a bit misleading, because the book ignores the entire subfield of behavioral economics. Still, it’s a fun read.
- Cass R. Sunstein, The Cost-Benefit Revolution (MIT Press). We are going to read this book on the strength of Tyler Cowen’s recommendation. Our copy of this book just arrived (11/12), so expect regular updates soon.
- Tom Wright & Bradley Hope, Billion Dollar Whale (Hachette). We just finished reading this tome, which tells an incredible tale of financial fraud on the most massive scale imaginable. Alas, the main culprits in this story (the Malaysian boy wonder Jho Low and the investment banker Tim Leissner of Goldman Sachs) are still at large!
