Reviews

It all adds up! Political Arithmetic captures a great intellectual pioneer at work and shows how he helped make modern economics a tool for transforming not only mankind's environment but mankind itself.--Sylvia Nasar, author of Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius and A Beauti

The tale moves quickly, but with the light touch of a master who understands the tradition of which he writes from the inside.
