Item Description: Audible Studios on Brilliance, United States, 2016. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 170 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New. Ever since Adam Smith, the central teaching of economics has been that free markets provide us with material well-being, as if by an invisible hand. InPhishing for Phools, Nobel Prize-winning economists George Akerlof and Robert Shiller deliver a fundamental challenge to this insight, arguing that markets harm as well as help us. As long as there is profit to be made, sellers will systematically exploit our psychological weaknesses and our ignorance through manipulation and deception. Rather than being essentially benign and always creating the greater good, markets are inherently filled with tricks and traps and will quot;phishquot; us as quot;phools.quot; Phishing for Phools therefore strikes a radically new direction in economics, based on the intuitive idea that markets both give and take away. Akerlof and Shiller bring this idea to life through dozens of stories that show how phishing affects everyone in almost every walk of life. We spend our money up to the limit and then worry about how to pay the next month s bills. The financial system soars then crashes. We are attracted, more than we know, by advertising. Our political system is distorted by money. We pay too much for gym memberships, cars, houses, and credit cards. Drug companies ingeniously market pharmaceuticals that do us little good and sometimes are downright dangerous. Phishing for Phools explores the central role of manipulation and deception in fascinating detail in each of these areas and many more. It thereby explains a paradox: why, at a time when we are better off than ever before in history, all too many of us are leading lives of quiet desperation. At the same time, the book tells stories of individuals who have stood against economic trickery—and how it can be reduced through greater knowledge, reform, and regulation.

Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Part of the Nantchev s Nuggets of Knowledge series Pure actionable knowledge. NO fluff. NO theory. Just Results and Success. I wrote this book to introduce entrepreneurs to the invisible hand theory. Generally speaking, I am surprised that people do not understand about this theory because it explains away a lot of the criticisms of capitalism and justifies how it works. This is largely a libertarian entrepreneur approach to the invisible hand theory, and due to the complexity of the nature, it may warrant a sequel. Because we live in a capitalist system, it is best if you understand how it works, and the invisible hand theory underpins it all. Businesses seek to solve problems, and thus they are enriched in proportion to the size of the problem they solve. Learn why the profit motive is good. Everyone expects fair pay for the time, talent and effort in their works. The pay could be monetary, emotional, spiritual, experience, etc. Without a motive to do something, people will not act. Business is not theft because it is based on a voluntary exchange on the basis of a fair and/or agreeable price. Businesses are in the business of solving problems, problems that people will pay for with their hard earned money. Furthermore, I some of the shortcomings of the invisible hand theory because Adam Smith had no concept of marketing back then. And marketing can make all the difference in the what people buy. Marketing is about perception. I also discuss how supply and demand affect the production of good, and how that very same production lifts up society, civilisation, standards of living and frees up peoples time to do other things. The role of government is also discussed: where excessive regulation and rules cripple businesses and stifle growth. The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. Lastly, I discuss an entrepreneurial approach to inequality in the west. Essentially is down to you, as an individual, increasing your human capital and being able to bring more to the table in a business and in the wider economy. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781543144512

Item Description: Polity Press, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Market addresses one of the most controversial answers to the question, how is social order possible? Ever since Adam Smith conceived the idea of an invisible hand , advocates of the market have argued that social cohesion, material prosperity and political vitality are best achieved not by central control and planning but by laissez-faire - the policy of non-intervention. In this book, Alan Aldridge guides readers through the complex interplay between analysis, description and ideology that characterizes social theorizing on the market. A distinctive feature of The Market is its emphasis on the role of culture in shaping the social reality of markets as perceived and experienced by people participating in them. Ideologies examined include: Market fundamentalism - the conviction that free markets are universally beneficial; Market populism - the assertion that the free market reflects the democratic will of the people; Economic man - the notion that the main motive of our actions is to maximize our personal advantage; Globalism - the claim by neo-liberals that the global expansion of markets is irresistible, making political action irrelevant. The Market will be essential reading for students and researchers interested in the sociology of economic life, economic sociology and political economy. Bookseller Inventory # POW9780745632230

Originally delivered in the form of lectures at Glasgow, Adam Smith s The Wealth of Nations Books I-III laid the foundations of economic theory in general and classical economics in particular, and this Penguin Classics edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Andrew Skinner. The publication of The Wealth of Nations in 1776 coincided with America s Declaration of Independence, and with this landmark treatise on political economy, Adam Smith paved the way for modern capitalism, arguing that a truly free market - fired by competition yet guided as if by an invisible hand to ensure justice and equality - was the engine of a fair and productive society. Books I - III of The Wealth of Nations examine the division of labour as the key to economic growth, by ensuring the interdependence of individuals within society. They also cover the origins of money and the importance of wages, profit, rent and stocks; but the real sophistication of his analysis derives from the fact that it encompasses a combination of ethics, philosophy and history to create a vast panorama of society. This edition contains an analytical introduction offering an in-depth discussion of Smith as an economist and social scientist, as well as a preface, further reading and explanatory notes. Adam Smith (1723-90) was born in Glasgow and educated at Glasgow and Oxford. Two years after his return to Scotland, Smith moved to Edinburgh, where he delivered lectures on Rhetoric. In 1751 Smith was appointed Professor of Logic at Glasgow, but was translated to chair of Moral Philosophy in 1752. The Theory of Moral Sentiments was published in 1759, and The Wealth of Nations in 1776, the same year as the Declaration of Independence. If you enjoyed The Wealth of Nations, you might like Karl Marx s Capital, also available in Penguin Classics. Bookseller Inventory # APG9780140432084

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Tea Party movement doesn t have a single leader or a central organization, and that s the way the members of the movement like it. How though, can an unorganized movement get anything done? Economist Adam Smith addressed this same question. He recognized that the free market is made up of countless businesses all pursuing their own goals. With no central leadership or organization the free market system in many ways resembles chaos. Yet out of this chaos emerges a coherent system that produces a greater common good: an efficient and productive economy. Smith called this phenomenon the free market s invisible hand. In this book we ll take concepts from economics and apply them in a new and unique way to politics. From the outside it will resemble chaos, but the result will be a coherent and efficient system that achieves the goals of the Tea Party movement. Our new system will produce a greater common good without centralized organization or leadership, because (like the free market system) it will be guided by an invisible force-the conservative hand.

Item Description: Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 200 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Universally acknowledged as the father of capitalism, the eighteenth-century Scottish thinker Adam Smith (16 June 1723 - 17 July 1790) is best known for developing the concept of the invisible hand . The hand helped to explain how the removal of state regulation could set individuals free to specialise and pursue their own self-interest for the good of all. Unfortunately this idea was later manipulated by advocates of unfettered casino capitalism , while Smith s references to self-interest were caricatured as greed is good , the mantra of Wall Street s anti-hero Gordon Gekko. Smith s thought, rooted in the holistic science of moral philosophy, was squeezed into the straight-jacket of Economics - a discipline unknown in Smith s day.This introduction to Smith s life and ideas sews the invisible hand back on to the body of Smithian ethics. Smith rooted our trading instinct in human psychology and advanced a system of ethics founded on sympathy.In life as in books such as the renowned Wealth of Nations he drew much from the contrasts afforded by the industrializing Scottish Lowlands and the clan-based pastoralism of the Highlands, as well as between contemporaries such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and David Hume, a close friend. Weaving together Smith s life and ideas, the book highlights the ways in which Smith anticipated recent developments in behavioural economics and virtue ethics as well as debates over inequality. It argues that Smith can equip us to face tomorrow s challenges, and, much more importantly, make us better as well as happier humans. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781780235684
