Neslin; Overripe Economy American Capitalism and the Crisis of Democracy … Alan Nasser

Capitalism is in crisis. Overripe Economy uses a historical view to explain how we got here and why. Taking readers through the history of American capitalism–from the ruthless competition of the nineteenth century to the maturation of industrial capitalism in the early part of the twentieth and on into today’s finance-ridden decline–Alan Nasser lays out here in damning detail why the persistent austerity of financialized capitalism is the inevitable outcome of the evolution of the American economy.Capitalism, he argues, ultimately presents us with two alternatives: persistent austerity, declining democracy, and a privatized state, or a polity and economy characterized by genuine economic democracy .

Mert; The Undercover Economist – Tim Harford

This book claims to offer the hidden story behind the forces that shape our everyday lives – it’s like spending the day wearing x-ray goggles and suddenly understanding the economic incentive that drives everything. In theory economics can illuminate every aspect of the world ewe inhabit – if it is explained clearly enough. This covers, among other things, why the gap between rich and poor nations is so great, why it’s so difficult to get a foot on the property ladder, or why you can’t buy a decent second-hand car.

Supermarkets have price targeting down to a fine art: walk 500 metres in Liverpool Street and you can save 15 per cent on pretty much everything. Coffee shops are the same, but who would walk that distance to save 30p? Price targeting in products goes to extremes: IBM have to put an additional chip in their low-end printer to slow it down and justify the lower price. Pricing strategies encounter snags when they ‘leak’ – either when rich customers buy cheap products, or when products leak from one group to another. Group price targeting is inefficient because it takes products away from customers who are willing to pay more, and gives them to those who pay less.
