Why does the stock exchange dip during a lunar eclipse? Why don t cars with safety features lead to fewer injuries? Why did Nehru ignore the Chinese threat in the lead-up to the 1962 war? Why is it that a stranger might risk his life to save yours on one day, and a street full of passersby might casually watch you bleed to death on another? In pithy, sparkling, bite-sized chapters, economists Vivek Dehejia and Rupa Subramanya tackle these seeming mysteries and unearth the real reasons why we are like this only . The answers are entertaining and surprising at every turn, and reveal a picture of modern India as never seen before.

Review:

Succinctly explains Indian reality in an unconventional manner. The authors use everyday examples to explain complex problems. A riveting read, indeed. --Jay Panda

This is economics and game theory as great entertainment! --Gurcharan Das

A quirky, thoughtful little book that is sometimes provocative, often surprising and always interesting Shashi Tharoor Economics needn t be boring. Economics can be real, not abstract and esoteric. This is a delightful book, illustrating how and why economists look at things. It isn t just about India, it is also about how economics works. --Bibek Debroy
