  • A Cooperative Speciesby Samuel Bowles; Herbert Gintis

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 25.95 US$ 20.76

    Why do humans, uniquely among animals, cooperate in large numbers to advance projects for the common good?

In A Cooperative... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 47.95

Unequal Chances... more...

  • Poverty Trapsby Samuel Bowles; Steven N. Durlauf; Karla Hoff

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 24.95 US$ 19.96

    Much popular belief--and public policy--rests on the idea that those born into poverty have it in their power to escape. But the persistence of poverty and ever-growing economic inequality around the world have led many economists to seriously question the model of individual economic self-determination when it comes to the poor. In Poverty Traps... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 49.95
