Anat’s frequent appearances on the national lecture circuit and her book “Don’t Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense About the Economy” are shaking up conventional wisdom about how to make the case for progressive policies, served up with equal parts brain science and sarcasm.  Check out what others are saying about “Don’t Buy It”:

“’Don’t Buy It’ will fundamentally transform how we talk about the economy. This can’t happen soon enough.” VAN JONES, author of New York Times bestseller Rebuild the Dream

“The economy is not like the weather—something that we all talk about but cant do anything about. In fact, one of the most important things we can do about the economy is talk about it sensibly, honestly, and accurately. In her new book, Anat Shenker-Osorio points the way to an economic nomenclature that tells it like it is.” –PAUL BEGALA, CNN commentator

’Don’t Buy It’ fits in neatly with the messaging genre of George Lakoff and Drew Westen, but goes more deeply into income inequality issues. . . . Shenker-Osorio has a voice that’s fun to hang out with: smart, savvy, wry, funny—a shooter from the hip who urges simple, practical, passionate language.”
SUSAN GARDNER, executive editor, Daily Kos

“…linguist Anat Shenker-Osorio … highlights a something else: The role of language in limiting our perceptions of the possible, and shaping our most fundamental understanding of what the economy even is, much less how it might be fixed.” –Al Jazeera English review

Here’s an early review from Daily Kos. And others from the Village Voice and Al Jazeera English.
