  • Luxury Feverby Robert H. Frank

    Free Press 2001; US$ 25.00

    A new luxury fever has America in its grip. Independent of stock prices, recessions, and inflation rates, the past two decades have witnessed a spectacular and uninterrupted rise in luxury consumption. Ordinary, functional goods are no longer acceptable. Our cars have gotten larger, heavier, and far more expensive. Mansions larger than 30,000 square... more...

  • The Return of The Economic Naturalistby Robert H Frank

    Ebury Publishing 2009; US$ 11.27

    The Economic Naturalist is back with a whole batch of intriguing new questions and answers, drawn from his New York Times columns, that reveal how we really behave when confronted with economic choices. Do tax cuts for business owners really stimulate employment? Why shouldn't we just leave everything to the market? And why do we all save so... more...

  • The Economic Naturalistby Robert H Frank

    Ebury Publishing 2011; US$ 14.09

    Have you ever wondered why there is a light in your fridge but not in your freezer? Or why 24-hour shops bother having locks on their doors? Or why soft drink cans are cylindrical, but milk cartons are square? The answer is simple: economics. For years, economist Robert Frank has been encouraging his students to ask questions about the conundrums... more...

  • The Darwin Economyby Robert H. Frank

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 26.95

    Who was the greater economist--Adam Smith or Charles Darwin? The question seems absurd. Darwin, after all, was a naturalist, not an economist. But Robert Frank, New York Times economics columnist and best-selling author of The Economic Naturalist , predicts that within the next century Darwin will unseat Smith as the intellectual founder of economics.... more...

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 16.95

    Who was the greater economist--Adam Smith or Charles Darwin? The question seems absurd. Darwin, after all, was a naturalist, not an economist.

  • What Price the Moral High Ground?by Robert H. Frank

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 16.95

    Financial disasters--and stories of the greedy bankers who precipitated them--seem to underscore the idea that self-interest will always trump concerns for the greater good. Indeed, this idea is supported by the prevailing theories in both economics and evolutionary biology. But is it valid? In What Price the Moral High Ground? , economist and social... more...

  • Success and Luckby Robert H. Frank

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 26.95

    How important is luck in economic success? No question more reliably divides conservatives from liberals. As conservatives correctly observe, people who amass great fortunes are almost always talented and hardworking. But liberals are also correct to note that countless others have those same qualities yet never earn much. In recent years, social... more...

  • Global Pension Crisisby Richard A. Marin; Robert H. Frank

    Wiley 2013; US$ 60.00

    A comprehensive look at the crisis of unfunded pension liabilities and what must be done to avoid the same problem in the future As the generational bubble of the Baby Boomers begins to retire, it is increasingly evident that governments, corporations, and individuals have failed to adequately prepare for the obligations and needs of this giant... more...

  • The Winner-Take-All Societyby Philip J Cook; Robert H Frank

    Ebury Publishing 2010; US$ 14.09

    Why does the top one per cent of the population capture such a disproportionate amount of the wealth? Why do top athletes win dozens of sponsorship deals, yet competitors who finish just moments behind struggle to attract a single deal? Why does one product become a runaway success, while others flounder and fail? The answer is the rise of 'winner-take-all'... more...
