Summary
"To many, Thomas Carlyle's put-down of economics as "the dismal science" is as fitting now as it was 150 years ago, but Diane Coyle argues that economics today is more soulful than dismal, a more practical and human science than ever before. In contrast to Freakonomics, which applied economics to unlikely or even eccentric subjects such as baby names and drug gangs, The Soulful Science describes the remarkable creative renaissance in how economics is addressing the most fundamental questions - and how it is starting to help solve problems such as poverty and global warming. A lively and entertaining tour of the most exciting new economic thinking about big-picture problems, The Soulful Science uncovers the hidden humanization of economics over the past two decades."--Jacket
