Re-Thinking The Network Economy
from the sounds-good dept
While I think many people are sick of books about the “new economy”, this relatively new book sounds like it might be worth reading. It takes a much more pragmatic approach to the subject, and looks at things from the perspective of an economist – looking at how, realistically, the internet does changes some things, but leaves others the same. It really sounds like Re-Thinking the Network Economy looks at the internet and tries to strip out the hype while focusing on the core economics of how markets work. Since I’m a strong believer in having a good understanding of economics in trying to understand how the world works, it’s good to see economists try to answer these questions that have plenty of people scratching their heads. From the review here, I don’t think I agree with everything he has to say, but it still sounds like it’s worth reading to get his perspective.
