內容簡介

內容簡介 世界沒有愈變愈好,反而深陷各種困擾。焦躁不安的時代,更需要有憑有據的清晰思考。我們或許都很疑惑:移工、移民和難民會不會搶走本地民眾的工作、拉低大家的薪資?自由貿易帶來的好處跟傷害到底該怎麼衡量、怎麼處理?提高有錢人的稅率會不會阻礙創新,拖累經濟動能,最後大家一起倒楣?以前經濟可以大幅成長,是因為領導者特別有才幹,但後來的都不會拚經濟所以空轉停滯嗎?貧富不均愈來愈嚴重,究竟是哪裡出差錯,我們還能翻身嗎?自動化逐漸取代人工,失去工作該怎麼辦?全民基本收入是不是解決多種問題的終極解方?諾貝爾經濟學獎得主班納吉與杜芙若指出,我們當前面臨的各種核心經濟議題(移民、貿易、經濟成長、貧富不均、環境惡化),在群眾氣憤狂熱的直覺反應,以及死抱教條的「專家」說法夾擊之下,讓本就困難的情況變得更加棘手。他們認為,唯有根據不斷累積更新的研究結果,以承認自己未必正確的謙虛態度多方思考,才能穿透各種過度簡化的武斷意見,找出合適的做法。這本書,可以說是來自研究前線的報告,從中可以看到當今最好的經濟學家怎麼看我們社會正努力應付的基本問題;不只是闡述他們的結論,更說明他們如何得出結論。本中文書介出自《艱困時代的經濟學思考》春山出版有限公司出版FROM THE WINNERS OF THE 2019 NOBEL PRIZE IN ECONOMICS 'Wonderfully refreshing . . . A must read' Thomas Piketty In this revolutionary book, prize-winning economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day. From immigration to inequality, slowing growth to accelerating climate change, we have the resources to address the challenges we face but we are so often blinded by ideology. Original, provocative and urgent, Good Economics for Hard Times offers the new thinking that we need. It builds on cutting-edge research in economics - and years of exploring the most effective solutions to alleviate extreme poverty - to make a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect. A much-needed antidote to polarized discourse, this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.
