            The experience of the last decade has not been kind to the image of economists- asleep at the wheel (perhaps with the foot on the gas pedal) in the run-up to the great recession, squabbling about how to get out of it, tone-deaf in discussions of the plight of Greece or the Euro a...rea; they seem to have lost the ability to provide reliable guidance on the great problems of the day. In this ambitious, provocative book Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how traditional western-centric thinking has failed to explain what is happening to people in a newly globalized world- in short Good Economics has been done badly. This precise but accessible book covers many of the most essential issues of our day, including why migration doesn't follow the law of supply and demand, why trade liberalization can drive unemployment up and wages down and why nobody can really explain why and when growth happens. In doing so, they seek to reclaim this essential terrain, and to offer readers an economist's view of the most pressing issues of the day, one that is candid about the complexities, the zones of ignorance, and the areas of genuine disagreement.

            The Anarchy: The Relentless Rise of the East India Company
             

            The Anarchy: The Relentless Rise of the East India Company (Hardback)

            In August 1765 the East India Company defeated the young Mughal emperor and set up, in his place, a government run by English traders who collected taxes through means of a private army. The creation of this new government marked the moment that the East India Company ceased to b...e a conventional trading company, dealing in silks and spices, and became something much more unusual: an international corporation and an aggressive colonial power. In less than half a century it had trained up a private security force of around 260,000 men - twice the size of the British army - and had subdued an entire subcontinent, conquering Bengal and later the Mughal capital Delhi. The company's reach stretched relentlessly until almost all of India south of Delhi was effectively ruled from a boardroom in London. The Anarchy tells the remarkable story of how one of the world's most magnificent Empires disintegrated and was replaced by a dangerously unregulated company - based thousands of miles overseas and answerable only to shareholders. In his most ambitious and riveting book to date, William Dalrymple tells the story of the East India Company as it has never been told before, unfolding a timely cautionary tale of the first global corporate power - and the violence and corruption that have reverberated across a continent for generations.

            Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century showed that capitalism, left to itself, generates deepening inequality. In this audacious follow-up, he challenges us to revolutionize how we think about ideology and history, exposing the ideas that have sustained inequality s...ince premodern times and outlining a fairer economic system.

            Rupert Murdoch's extraordinary career has no parallel. His control of Fox news, which so successfully supports the Trump presidency, is a key force in American politics. In the UK, his control of The Sun and The Times leaves politicians scrambling to get him onside. But what do w...e know about the man himself? This book looks closely at the Murdochs, focusing on Rupert's father Keith, who built the family's media power and cultivated the anti-establishment instincts that his son Rupert is known for. Roberts traces the life of the Murdochs, how Rupert Murdoch's view of the world was formed, and assesses it's impact on the media that influences our politics today.
