The author of the widely praised Age of Greed now gives us a bold indictment of some of our most accepted economic theories - why they're wrong, the harm they've done, and the theories that would vastly improve them. Jeff Madrick, a former columnist for The New York Times, is an economics columnist for Harper's, a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books, and editor of Challenge Magazine. He is visiting professor of humanities at The Cooper Union, and director of the Bernard L. Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative at the Roosevelt Institute.

He has also written for The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Institutional Investor, The Nation, American Prospect, The Boston Globe and Newsday. He lives in New York City.

"Narrator Adam Grupper adeptly narrates this examination of some of the big ideas in economics. Grupper reads in an even tone, using pauses and pacing to emphasize MadrickOs explanations and critiques as he tackles each of the seven ideas in turn. Grupper expertly navigates the economic and business terms as well as the plethora of names that have contributed to these economic theoriesN including Adam SmithOs Oinvisible handO and SayOs LawNwhich, Madrick contends, look good on paper but donOt always translate seamlessly to the real world. GrupperOs reading, while serious and appropriate for the topic, contains enough enthusiasm to keep the energy high and the listener engaged through all seven of the ideas presented, many of which are widely known, yet will be taken in a new light after listening to this interpretation of them.
