  • The Economist: Brands and Brandingby Rita Clifton

    Profile Books 2010; US$ 26.67

    Although the balance sheet may not even put a value on it, a company's brand or its portfolio of brands is in many cases its most valuable asset, accounting for as much as 70% of a firm's market value in some cases. This book argues that because of this and because of the power of not-for-profit brands like Oxfam, all organisations should make the... more...

  • Connectionsby Sanjeev Goyal

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 49.95

    Networks pervade social and economic life, and they play a prominent role in explaining a huge variety of social and economic phenomena. Standard economic theory did not give much credit to the role of networks until the early 1990s, but since then the study of the theory of networks has blossomed. At the heart of this research is the idea that the... more...

    The fact that we inhabit a consumer society has incredibly far-reaching implications.

  • Consumption Takes Timeby Ian Steedman

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 54.95

    Standard economic theory of consumer behaviour considers consumers' preferences, their incomes and commodity prices to be the determinants of consumption. However, consumption takes time and no consumer has more - or less - than 168 hours per week. This simple fact is almost invisible in standard theory, and takes the centre stage in this book. Whether... more...
