This article in the Washington Post caught my eye today. I was really interested in the authors the writer mentioned. Since the piece has links to a bunch of books at Amazon, I went looking. Unfortunately, very few of the links were to Kindle books, and even the books with print profiles were often not available.
Then I checked my local library; two of them could be found and requested. And both of those were available on Amazon, albeit at prices I am unwilling to pay for authors I don’t know.
Joseph Stiglitz gave a presentation today at work. If you were one of the first 150 people into the auditorium, you got a copy of his book, The Price of Inequality. Stiglitz was a pretty good speaker, in terms of boiling down economic theories to something a layperson like me could understand easily. I’m looking forward to reading the book…as soon as I finish my library books and Frank Turner’s memoir.
