Chip War book cover
Chip War
The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology
Chris Miller - 2022-10-04
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the new oil of the modern world - microchip technology. In "Chip War," economic historian Chris Miller explores the battle for control over this critical resource between the United States and China. With virtually everything running on chips, from missiles to microwaves, the stakes are high for military, economic, and geopolitical power. China's chip-building ambitions and military modernization threaten America's global dominance and economic prosperity. Miller explains how the semiconductor became so vital to modern life and how America became #1 in chip design and manufacturing. But with key components slipping out of America's grasp, the world faces not only a chip shortage but a new Cold War. Discover the fascinating story of the battle for chips and how it impacts our current state of technology, politics, and economics.

The book on microchips I needed: Chip War by @crmiller1 is a fascinating history of chips from their inception to the present that spans technology, economics, geopolitics and more. Also an indispensable guide to a critical public policy issue. My review.      источник

Joshua Cohen - 2021-05-05
Рейтинг Goodreads
A Jewish historian is forced to play host to Benzion Netanyahu and his family during a hiring committee interview at a campus in upstate New York. Mixing fiction with nonfiction, The Netanyahus is a genre-bending comedy of blending, identity, and politics that showcases Joshua Cohen's impressive skills as a writer.

Claudia Goldin's in-depth look at the experiences of college-educated women throughout the twentieth century sheds new light on the struggle for true equality for dual career couples.

Jason Furman
Claudia Goldin's (@PikaGoldin)'s book "Career and Family" is an extraordinary synthesis of a career's research on the question of the disparities and challenges facing women in the workforce--and also what to do them. Could not recommend it more highly.      источник
The Price of Peace book cover
The Price of Peace
Money, Democracy, and the Life of John Maynard Keynes
Zachary D. Carter - 2020-05-19
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the vibrant and deeply human vision of economist John Maynard Keynes in The Price of Peace. Follow Keynes from turn-of-the-century parties in London's riotous Bloomsbury art scene to diplomatic breakthroughs in the mountains of New Hampshire. Unearth the lost legacy of one of history's most important minds, and learn how his innovative and radical ideas can reinvent national government and reframe the principles of international diplomacy in our own time.
Jason Furman
@zachdcarter's biography of Keynes is extraordinary: insightful, well written, nuanced, etc. The biography was the first two-thirds of the book and my review spends more space on my concerns on the last third because I had more to add on that topic.      источник

The Race between Education and Technology
Claudia Goldin - 2008-06-30

How education and technology affect each other, and what it means for society: this book provides a fascinating historical analysis of the relationship between education, wages, and inequality in the US in the twentieth century. Discover how the American educational system became the engine of the world's richest nation, and how technological change has affected the race between education and inequality in recent decades. A must-read for anyone interested in the future of work and education.
Jason Furman
I'm about 12 years behind, but I finally read @PikaGoldin and @lkatz42's book (instead of just several of the papers underlying it) and thought it was excellent. Better late than never if you haven't read it yet either. My review:      источник
The WEIRDest People in the World book cover
The WEIRDest People in the World
How the West Became Psychologically Peculiar and Particularly Prosperous
Joseph Henrich - 2020-09-08
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the origins and evolution of the Western mind and its impact on the world in The WEIRDest People in the World. By delving into global psychological diversity, Harvard professor Joseph Henrich illuminates the cultural transformations that led to highly individualistic, nonconformist societies like ours. Drawing on research in anthropology, psychology, economics, and evolutionary biology, Henrich maps the shifts in family structures, marriage, and religion that laid the foundation for the modern world. This highly engaging and provocative investigation reveals the fascinating interplay between culture, institutions, and psychology that shapes human history.
Jason Furman
The WEIRDest People in the World by @JoHenrich is among the best books I have read in the last 5-10 years. It is long but very readable and every page is worth it. My review:      источник
The Riches of This Land book cover
The Riches of This Land
Jim Tankersley - 2020-08-11
Рейтинг Goodreads
The Riches of This Land is a character-driven narrative that sheds light on the decline of the middle class in America, while providing a roadmap for its revival. Jim Tankersley blends his personal experiences with new economic and political research to unravel the mystery of the American economy since the 1970s. He also addresses policies that have led to inequality and the dangerous theories of the economy peddled by politicians like Trump. The book concludes with policy prescriptions that can create more and better jobs for all workers, regardless of race or gender, and restore upward mobility.
Jason Furman
I love how how @jimtankersley combines economic research and perceptive reporting in a book that makes an important argument--America's riches derive from its diverse contributors.      источник
Divided We Fall book cover
Divided We Fall
America's Secession Threat and How to Restore Our Nation
David French - 2020-09-22
Рейтинг Goodreads
Divided We Fall warns of the potential dangers of our polarized society and the potential for the United States to fracture into regions, destabilizing the world. French presents a mix of cutting edge research and fair-minded analysis while calling for unity and tolerance in the face of escalating violence and extreme ideologies.
Jason Furman
@DavidAFrench practices what he preaches in this excellent book infused with tolerance for diverse perspectives. His portrayal of the dissolution of America and the concomitant collapse of the global order is scarier than any dystopia I've read. My review:      источник
