The Price of Everything: The Cost of Birth, the Price of Death, and the Value of Everything in between
"An enthralling look at the prices we put, consciously and unconsciously, on everything from a gallon of gas to a spare kidney. Everyone could learn something from this wise and clever book. I did." --Tim Harford, Financial Times columnist; author of The Undercover Economist "Everything in the world comes with a price, but what does a price mean and how is it set? This riveting narrative is the best book on these very human and very important questions. There is an interesting nugget on virtually every page." --Tyler Cowen, coauthor of the Marginal Revolution blog "Porter discusses the role of economic value not only in determining the cost of a premium cup of coffee, but also how in much different individuals and society are willing to pay to reduce the likelihood of death from, say, disease or car accidents, and even the economic logic behind who marries whom and bargaining between the sexes in marriage. I highly recommend this book to everyone who would like an often amusing and yet highly insightful discussion of how choices are made, essentially over the whole range of human behaviour." --Gary Becker, economist and Nobel laureate "Price, an 'unacknowledged legislator' of human behaviour, has found its poet in Eduardo Porter. The Price of Everything is a wise, illuminating, and necessary book." --Tom Vanderbilt, author of Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us)"Eduardo Porter unlocks the economic puzzles of daily life like a master safe cracker. The Price of Everything is clever, stylish and full of surprising insights. In other words, priceless." --Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind and Grand Pursuit: A History of Economic Genius"A fascinating journey through what we see every day-but do not think about enough. Eduardo Porter makes you think hard about the corporate interests at work behind the veil of prices (and much more). Just because people are willing to pay does not mean that the price is right-in any sense of the word." --Simon Johnson, coauthor of 13 Bankers; professor of entrepreneurship, MIT Sloan School of Management`An entertaining study ... A journalist and member of The New York Times editorial board, [Porter] has set out to do Levitt and Dubner one better. Rather than taking on small snippets of life from the clinical perspective of an economist, Porter's goal is to inform us, as the title modestly sets out, of the price of everything ... Porter's book covers the gamut, from the price of polygamy and Judaism to the ridiculously high price of printer-ink cartridges ... The accessibility of his prose carries us along. And nothing escapes his gaze.' --Sunday Times`Entertaining and enlightening' --Financial Times`If ever proof were needed that money does indeed make the world go around, Eduardo Porter provides it in this examination of how and why we ascribe certain, often perplexing, values to objects and people' --Reader's Digest `There are many interesting freakonomicsy nuggets here.' --Guardian
