The choice : a fable of free trade and protectionism by Russell D Roberts( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Turkish and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A novel on the global economy? Russell Roberts breaks all the rules in this provocative and whimsical look at the key international economic issues facing America and American business. The Choice stars the ghost of David Ricardo, a nineteenth-century economist. To get his wings he must persuade the CEO of an American television manufacturing company that imports are good for America, even if they destroy the domestic television industry. Free of economic jargon, The Choice gives the reader a new perspective on how international trade affects business and our daily lives." "The Choice explores a wide array of global economic issues from tariffs and quotas to the lives of unemployed workers and their children."--Jacket
The invisible heart : an economic romance by Russell D Roberts( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Invisible Heart takes a provocative look at business, economics, and regulation through the eyes of Sam Gordon and Laura Silver, teachers at the exclusive Edwards School in Washington, D.C. Sam lives and breathes capitalism. He thinks that most government regulation is unnecessary or even harmful. He believes that success in business is a virtue. He believes that our humanity flourishes under economic freedom. Laura prefers Wordsworth to the Wall Street Journal. Where Sam sees victors, she sees victims. She wants the government to protect consumers and workers from the excesses of Sam's beloved marketplace." "While Sam and Laura argue about how to make the world a better place, a parallel story unfolds across town. Erica Baldwin, the crusading head of a government watchdog agency, tries to bring Charles Krauss, a ruthless CEO, to justice. How are these two dramas connected? Why is Sam under threat of dismissal? Will Erica Baldwin find the evidence she needs? Can Laura love a man with an Adam Smith poster on his wall? The answers in The Invisible Heart give the reader a richer appreciation for how business and the marketplace transform our lives."--Jacket
How Adam Smith can change your life : an unexpected guide to human nature and happiness by Russell D Roberts( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How the insights of an 18th century economist can help us live better in the 21st century. Adam Smith became famous for The Wealth of Nations, but the Scottish economist also cared deeply about our moral choices and behavior--the subjects of his other brilliant book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759). Now, economist Russ Roberts shows why Smith's neglected work might be the greatest self-help book you've never read. Roberts explores Smith's unique and fascinating approach to fundamental questions such as: - What is the deepest source of human satisfaction? - Why do we sometimes swing between selfishness and altruism? - What's the connection between morality and happiness? Drawing on current events, literature, history, and pop culture, Roberts offers an accessible and thought-provoking view of human behavior through the lenses of behavioral economics and philosophy"--

Stanford University student and Cuban American tennis prodigy Ramon Fernandez is outraged when a nearby mega-store hikes its prices the night of an earthquake.

Ruth begins a dialogue with Ramon about prices, prosperity, and innovation and their role in our daily lives. Is Ruth trying to limit the damage from Ramon's protest? Or does she have something altogether different in mind? As Ramon is thrust into the national

1 edition published in 2004 in Italian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'itinerario proposto è strutturato in alcune tappe essenziali: imparare a riconoscere le proprie emozioni; saper riconoscere i propri pensieri nei momenti in cui si provano sensazioni spiacevoli; raggiungere la consapevolezza che le emozioni sono influenzate dal modo in cui si interpreta la realtà esterna; imparare ad affrontare gli eventi negativi come episodi specifici (che si possono quindi cambiare); mettere in discussione la visione negativa di sé, del mondo e del proprio futuro, tipica della persona depressa; correggere i pensieri catastrofici sostituendoli con quelli positivi
How Adam Smith can change your life : an unexpected guide to human nature and happiness by Russell D Roberts( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A forgotten book by one of history's greatest thinkers reveals the surprising connections between happiness, virtue, fame, and fortune. Adam Smith may have become the patron saint of capitalism after he penned his most famous work, The Wealth of Nations. But few people know that when it came to the behavior of individuals-the way we perceive ourselves, the way we treat others, and the decisions we make in pursuit of happiness-the Scottish philosopher had just as much to say. He developed his ideas on human nature in an epic, sprawling work titled The Theory of Moral Sentiments. Most economists have never read it, and for most of his life, Russ Roberts was no exception. But when he finally picked up the book by the founder of his field, he realized he'd stumbled upon what might be the greatest self-help book that almost no one has read. In How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life, Roberts examines Smith's forgotten masterpiece, and finds a treasure trove of timeless, practical wisdom. Smith's insights into human nature are just as relevant today as they were three hundred years ago. What does it take to be truly happy? Should we pursue fame and fortune or the respect of our friends and family? How can we make the world a better place? Smith's unexpected answers, framed within the rich context of current events, literature, history, and pop culture, are at once profound, counterintuitive, and highly entertaining. By reinvigorating Smith's neglected classic, Roberts provides us with an invaluable look at human behavior through the lens of one of history's greatest minds
