Ha inoltre analizzato le recensioni per verificarne l'affidabilità.
Economics is not my thing but I was fascinated by some of the topics tackled in this collection. I like the immediacy of all of it, like these are issues we'll need to think about in the very near future. The idea of selling one's consciousness, patenting it, stamping it like every other expression of intellectual property, and the consequences of deciding who owns, and what can be done with said consciousness.
I like that the collection tackles things that are rarely thought about, and deals with issues of surplus and consumption, and ask questions like, what are you willing to sell, and what's the price of freedom.
Sick of formulaic SF about wars in space? Remember when science-fiction tried to make you think? This is the book for you.
From supply and demand to opportunity cost, the realm of economics is explored through a series of tales that reawoke my long-lost sense of awe. Make no mistake, though--you don't need any prior knowledge of the subject to appreciate this book; the stories are well-written and engaging and there are even helpful talking points raised in the appendix.
This has obviously been a labour of love for all involved and I sincerely hope to see a second volume!
What if economic principles were examined through the lenses of science fiction and fantasy? That question is answered in this new anthology.
The stories collected here range from traditional fantasy to alternate history to modern science fiction, with a few that defy easy categorization. For the most part, the authors deliver some thoughtful, funny, disturbing, and simply curious stories that explore characters and situations, always with an eye toward the system of capital, trade, value, and exchange.
As an added bonus, the editor has enlisted an economist to write an afterward to provide some critical analysis of the stories, along with classroom-ready discussion questions.
Strange Economics is something a hybrid beast: part academic experiment, part anthology. Overall, definitely worth looking into.
I was SO EXCITED when I saw this book and started the first story. But, well, I really disliked the ending of the Slow Bomb, and the rest of them were much less conceptually interesting and mostly less well written (I rolled my eyes a few times at the This Is Deepness of it all). Kind of fun and definitely something I'd love to see explored more, but yeah, wish these had a little bit more to chew on.
(And warning, one of them, I Can Always Tell a John, is just gross faux-deep writing with a male rape played as just desserts/kinda for laughs.).
This book is a collection of fictional essays on economics that represent almost all economic philosophies. While I certainly do not agree with many of the philosophies presented, the stories are original and well written.
