Best Economics Books of the Year
By Arnold Kling
Tyler Cowen has a good list. He can be trusted to be unbiased on books written by authors with no GMU connection: Kahneman, Brynjolffson and McAfee, and Field.
I would add Friedman and Kraus, Engineering the Financial Crisis, to the list. Does it compete with Klein for what Tyler calls “Best Austrian or Austrian-influenced book?” Here is Pete Boettke’s review.
I would add Francis Fukuyama’s The Origins of Political Order.
Frydman and Goldberg (which book, though?) becomes more significant in light of this year’s Nobel Prize. It acts as a counterweight.
