The Complacent Class book cover
The Complacent Class
Tyler Cowen - 2017-02-28
Calificación de Goodreads
The Complacent Class by Tyler Cowen is a national bestseller that examines the state of American culture. Cowen argues that Americans have drifted away from their tradition of innovation and restlessness, choosing comfort over change. While this "matching culture" brings positives such as music we like and partners who make us happy, it also leads to significant downsides such as heightened inequality and decreased incentives to innovate. Cowen warns that this cannot go on forever, and unless Americans force themselves to embrace their restless tradition again, they will face a difficult future.
Rohit Khanna
A brilliant piece by ⁦@tylercowen⁩ celebrating a diversity of thought & a Socratic examination of our history, policies, and values. Cowen is center right, but an intellectual force. His book Complacent Class is a must read that challenged me.      fuente

Contra los zombis book cover
Contra los zombis
Economía, política y la lucha por un futuro mejor
Paul Krugman - 2020-01-28
Calificación de Goodreads
Nadie como Paul Krugman para acercarnos a los principales conceptos económicos y las ideas que mueven gran parte de nuestras políticas públicas y para explicar con lucidez problemas económicos a menudo confusos. En Contra los zombis, Krugman reúne más de noventa artículos ―muchos publicados en The New York Times― en dieciocho secciones organizadas temáticamente y enmarcadas en el contexto de un debate más amplio. En ellas aborda temas como la seguridad social, la atención médica, la crisis financiera de 2008 y sus secuelas, los mitos de la austeridad, la economía europea, los recortes de impuestos, las guerras comerciales, la desigualdad, el cambio climático y, sobre todo, el daño infligido por Donald Trump. Muchas de las piezas son argumentos contundentes contra la economía zombi, «una idea que debería haber sido eliminada por la evidencia, pero que se niega a morir». Contra los zombis es Krugman en estado puro y una guía indispensable para el discurso político y económico de dos décadas en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo. Con pinceladas rápidas y vívidas, Krugman aporta a sus lectores las claves necesarias para desbloquear los conceptos ocultos tras los principales problemas de política económica de nuestro tiempo.

@paulkrugman Loved this book and learned a lot from it about the role of markets, the public sector, outsourcing, and the debate over automation and productivity.      fuente

Rohit Khanna
I was late to my morning meeting because I couldn’t put down @ewarren book Persist. She’s an intellectual who makes the case that the fight is as important as the idea. Loved the story of how she had to bribe her toddler with M&Ms to potty-train her for childcare. Inspiring read!      fuente

How Citizens Are Building from the Ground Up
Charles Taylor - 2020-03-17
Calificación de Goodreads
"Reconstructing Democracy" is an urgent call to revitalize democracy in our troubled times. Across the globe, democracies suffer from a disconnect between the people and political elites, with many feeling ignored by their government. This has given rise to demagogues, but to reverse the pattern, we must focus on reinvigorating democracy at the local level. Through successful examples of community building, the book highlights how citizens can form alliances and discover their power to solve problems, offering a powerful case for re-engaging with democracy.
Rohit Khanna
Charles Taylor has been one of the most brilliant voices for keeping communities together and engaging citizens to find common ground. This book is worth a read.      fuente
