Edmund Phelps' Mass Flourishing selected as an FT Book of the Year
Martin Wolf writes: "Phelps, a Nobel laureate in economics, defies categorisation. 
In this extraordinary book – part history, part economics and part philosophy – 
he proclaims individual enterprise as the defining characteristic of modernity. 
But he fears this dynamism is lost. One does not have to agree to recognise
that Phelps has addressed some of the big questions about our future."
