Summary
  • "An economist explores the five laws that confirm our worst fears: stupid people can and do rule the world"--
  • Throughout history, a powerful force has hindered the growth of human welfare and happiness: human stupidity. Cipolla, a professor of economic history, seeks to help you detect and neutralize its threat. His serious yet humorous remarks help readers become better equipped to confront political realities, unreasonable colleagues, or your next dinner with your in-laws. -- adapted from back cover
