News & Opinion: The Best Books of 2008 - The Economist Edition

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:07 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

The Economist has chosen their books of the year in a variety of categories. You can go through the entire list here, but I've listed the choices in the Economics & Business category for quick review below. Other notable choices that could've been placed in the business category are A Splendid Exchange by William J. Bernstein, which was chosen in the History category (and we chose as the best book of the year on globalization), and Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein's Nudge from the Science and Technology category.
