    Numbermania

    How many steps have you done today? How many emails answered? How much money have you spent this week And how many hours have you slept? Welcome to the numberdemic, where a deluge of figures, stats and data manipulate your every move. From the way you work, date and exercise to the products you buy and the news you read, numbers have worked their way into every part of our lives. But is life better this way? How are all of those numbers affecting us? With fascinating, sometimes frightening and sometimes shrewdly funny research, behavioural economists Micael Dahlen and Helge Thorbjornsen explain why we’re so attached to numbers and how we can free ourselves from their tyranny.

  • The trading game

    The trading game

    Ever since he was a kid, kicking broken footballs on the streets of East London in the shadow of Canary Wharf’s skyscrapers, Gary wanted something better. Something a whole lot bigger. Then he won a competition run by a bank: ‘The Trading Game’. The prize: a golden ticket to a new life, as the youngest trader in the whole city. A place where you could make more money than you’d ever imagined. Where your colleagues are dysfunctional maths geniuses, overfed public schoolboys and borderline psychopaths, yet they start to feel like family. Where soon you’re the bank’s most profitable trader, dealing in nearly a trillion dollars. A day. Where you dream of numbers in your sleep – and then stop sleeping at all. But what happens when winning starts to feel like losing? The story of the dark heart of an intoxicating world – from someone who survived the game and then blew it all wide open.

  • The women who made modern economics

    £20.00

    The women who made modern economics

    Drawing on her personal experiences and relating them to the work of women past and present who are often overlooked, Rachel Reeves explores the ideas of theorists such as Harriet Martineau, Mary Paley Marshall and Joan Robinson but also the contributions of policy makers such as Janet Yellen, Gita Gopinath and Christine Lagarde. Throughout, she outlines her vision for the future of the economy if she does become the first female Chancellor of the UK, a future in which productivity is enhanced, growth is sustainable and there are opportunities for all, not just a privileged elite.
