Don’t Buy It
Innovative, witty and crazy smart are routinely bandied about to describe Anat Shenker-Osorio whose book, “Don’t Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense About the Economy” has opened even the most poll-encrusted eyes to how language shapes our acceptance of economic prescriptions, even when they run contrary to our own self-interest.
Anat’s commentary is thoroughly researched, yet highly accessible. It’s no wonder “Don’t Buy It” is on the recommended reading lists of movers and shakers the likes of CNN’s Paul Begala and New York Times bestselling author, Van Jones, among others. (testimonials)
