Economics has the power to make the world a better, happier and safer place: this book shows you how

Our world is in a mess. The challenges of climate change, inequality, hunger and a global pandemic mean our way of life seems more imperilled and society more divided than ever; but economics can help!

From parenting to organ donation, housing to anti-social behaviour, economics provides the tools we need to fix the biggest issues of today. Far from being a means to predict the stock market or enrich the elite, economics provides a lens through which we can better understand how things work, design clever solutions and create the conditions in which we can all flourish.

With a healthy dose of optimism, and packed with stories of economics in everyday situations, Erik Angner demonstrates the methods he and his fellow economists use to help improve our lives and the society in which we live. He shows us that economics can be a powerful force for good, awakening the possibility of a happier, more just and more sustainable world.
A clear guide into how economic reasoning can filter through noise and identify solutions for problems, big and small. * Financial Times * Angner shows that economics is a deeply moral endeavour that should give us hope that many of our most pressing problems can be solved. * Niall Kishtainy, author of A Little History of Economics * [T]his book is a success, bucking the trend by prescribing practical solutions to humanity's biggest challenges and explaining the economic rationale behind them with refreshing - and highly readable - clarity -- James Wilson * Tortoise * A brilliantly clear explanation of how, in the right hands, the insights of Economics can be used to make the world a better place -- Rohini Pande * Henry J. Heinz II Professor of Economics, Director, Economic Growth Center, Yale *
