Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 4/10/21

This week it’s been all about non-fiction, with new books on some of my favourite topics:

Sick Money by Billy Kenber (available 2nd November) arrived from Allen & Unwin. This is non-fiction about the pharmaceutical industry, including fluctuating prices and changes in drug development. It offers ideas on how to change the future of new medications.

Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth is about the deficiencies of mainstream economics, like growth at the cost of everything else and the ‘rational economic man’. It offers an alternative that meets the needs of all.

Narrative Economics by Robert J. Shiller is about the stories people tell (think Bitcoin or housing booms) and how these can go viral to affect economies – called narrative economics. These can help us to predict and prepare for major economic events, and are connected with epidemiology (think pandemics).

To see other books received/bought this week across the world, drop by the Mailbox Monday blog for links to everyone’s mailbox goodies.

  1. Your nonfiction looks interesting even though I seldom read nonfiction. After a month of not knowing what I’d be reading next, I’m back to having some sort of plan as I have review books to read. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
