Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The author of Cities and the Wealth of Nations looks at the connections between economics and nature and examines whether economic systems are shaped by the same forces at work in nature.

Review:
"[T]he book is well worth reading, twice if you have to. Not every single comment seems novel or apt, nor does the whole theory hang together quite as neatly as Jacobs hopes. But there are more than enough original pearls."

Robert Kuttner, New York Times Book Review, 03/12/2000

Review:
"Although [Jacobs] uses...an invented discussion among a group of fictional friends--the book's intellectual excitement compensates for this irritating device."

New Yorker, 04/17/2000

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. From the revered author of the classic The Death and Life of Great American Cities comes a new book that will revolutionize the way we think about the economy. Starting from the premise that human beings exist wholly within nature as part of natural order in every respect, Jane Jacobs has focused her singular eye on the natural world in order to discover the fundamental models for a vibrant economy. The lessons she discloses come from fields as diverse as ecology, evolution, and cell biology. Written in the form of a Platonic dialogue among five fictional characters, The Nature of Economies is as astonishingly accessible and clear as it is irrepressibly brilliant and wise-a groundbreaking yet humane study destined to become another world-altering classic.
