Princeton economist and Former Chairman of President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, Alan Krueger, has spent a lifetime studying the world's biggest markets. In Rockonomics, he provides an accessible, entertaining guide to economics of everyday life - as explained through t...he music industry. The core of his argument: in music as in life, the rich are getting richer while the rest are struggle to make ends meet. Success in both worlds is partly due to technological change, and partly a matter of luck. These and other economic factors play out every day in our jobs and lives. Few of us really understand them, and yet they can prepare us for the changes in store in the 21st Century economy. With fascinating access music industry executives, stars including Quincy Jones, managers of superbands including Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, up-and-comers, software designers and fans, Krueger's tour of the musical universe illustrates the threats, uncertainties and hopes of the economic forces that shape our lives.
