The Economics of Life: From Baseball to Affirmative Action to Immigration, How Real-World Issues Affect Our Everyday Life
McGraw Hill Professional, Jan 1, 1998 - Business & Economics - 352 pages
In The Economics of Life, Gary Becker and historian Guity Nashat Becker have collected the best of the economist's popular work from Business Week (where he is a monthly columnist). These thought-provoking essays show us where we have been and where, for better or worse, we are headed. Many of them aroused heated debate upon their original publication, and they will no doubt do so again. Extending well beyond the traditional range of economics, these 138 essays crisply address the changing role of women in modern economies, crime, immigration, drugs, marriage contracts, the effects of the stock market collapse in 1987, whether the Japanese stock market has been rigged, the organization of major league baseball and other sports, communism, competition between religions, the "Swedish way," discrimination against minorities. Supreme Court decisions, government spending, addictions, and many other topics.

This McGraw-Hill publication printed by a firm called Quebecor has the most unreadable text I have seen in a book. Not only are parts of nearly every letter missing, but the ink has also bled into hairy additions. That it has been printed on recycled paper may have been part of the problem, as is surely the choice of font (Cochin), but I suspect my copy was one of the later ones in a printing batch that was too large. Getting a badly printed book is of course a risk one takes when buying on the net. And as one does not know for sure whether the copy one has received is really worse than other copies one is reluctant to demand a refund. Prospective buyers of this book should try to make sure they get a copy that is actually readable.
