Ormerod tears up conventional wisdom and explains why the economy is much more than the sum of its parts. He argues that the economy must be viewed more like a living organism and suggests that policies designed to solve such problems as unemployment are doomed to a high failure rate. He suggests that different mind-sets and approaches are needed.

Recensioner i media

"'A fascinating and entertaining introduction to the economics of the 21st century.' New Scientist; 'Ormerod returns repeatedly to the systematic failure of economists' predictions. If you have ever wondered why they get it wrong, time after time, then you should read this book. It explains in clear, non-technical language why the traditional assumptions of economists make most of their theories hopeless.' Alasdair Palmer, Sunday Telegraph; 'An important book which everybody even remotely interested in political economy should read.' Larry Elliott, Guardian; 'As witty and wide-ranging as it is rigorous, Butterfly Economics provides excellent reasons for business and economics to start talking to each other again.' Observer"
