About the Author

Angus Deaton, winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize in economics, is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of Economics and International Affairs Emeritus and Senior Scholar at Princeton University.

Reviews

"Deaton's prose is lucid and tartly down-to-earth (the U.S. government works 'to help rich predators make ordinary people poorer, ' he writes), and he makes a convincing case that 'economics should be about understanding the reasons for and doing away with the sordidness and joylessness that come with poverty and deprivation.' The result is a refreshing take on America's economic discontents."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"This brilliant economics study will likely engage general readers and hold their attention to the end."-- "Library Journal (Starred review)"
