Speaking of Economics

London: Routledge, 2006

"Would but that the conversation of economics were characterized by the humor, humility, and humanity with which Arjo Klamer composed this marvelous book. Fortunately, I think the 'bunch of conversations' that make up the discipline of economics will be better — more tolerant of dissenters, more inclusive of outsiders, more relevant to students and everyday economists — when economists accept Klamer's invitation to see how strange their conversational habits really are. And what it takes to change them." — David Ruccio, University of Notre Dame
