What Would Keynes Do?

How the greatest economists would solve your everyday problems

By Tejvan Pettinger

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Get life advice and a crash course in economics from the greatest minds of every generation, including Milton Friedman, John Maynard Keynes, and John Forbes Nash Jr.

Have you ever wondered what Adam Smith would have to say about you playing the lottery? Or whether Jeremy Bentham could cure your hangover (through economics)? Ever pondered over what Milton Friedman might get you for Christmas?

By comparing and contrasting what the greatest economists of all time would have to say about 40 questions from your everyday life, What Would Keynes Do? will help you get to grips with all the important economic theories in an original and thought-provoking way.

Includes such puzzling conundrums as:
-Should I park in an illegal parking space and risk a fine?
-Should I go to University or start working straight away?
-Should I leave my children all my wealth after my death or spread it out throughout my life?
-Should I ever commit a crime?
-If I enjoy drinking beer, how much should I drink?
-Is it OK to be selfish?
-Should I vote for a political party which promises to raise taxes?

The Little Book of Mumfulness

Sarah Ford
Authors:
Sarah Ford

You've run out of nappies, you also haven't eaten in well over twelve hours and your house is beginning to look like it has been burgled. If you're at the end of your tether and wondering if it's just you (it isn't), then you need The Little Book of Mumfulness. In The Little Book of Mumfulness, a non-expert mum takes you through the non-perfect guide to getting through motherhood without losing your mind from exhaustion. It includes advice on how to take time throughout the day to restore your equilibrium (like having a long, loud scream in a closet), how to shortcut child-related tasks (by avoiding them altogether) and how to let off steam through mumful exercises. It also includes the news that IT'S NOT JUST YOU who is struggling with the demands of being the 'perfect' mother, and if you need a long swig of prosecco (or any wine from the fridge, or the cupboard for that matter) at the end of a day of parenting, then that is more than a-ok. Most importantly, this book will will help you to remember that being a good mum is about finding your own mumfulness amongst the imperfect chaos.

Mermaid is happy in her own fins. She is fiercely independent and is just as happy taking herself out for dinner as she is on a night out with the squad. Never one to bow out early, she confronts every challenge head on and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty (though her tail will always be sparkling clean). So let Mermaid guide you through the trials and tribulations of real girl power and you can be sure she'll always have your back. Be a Mermaid is a great gift for friends who need reminding of their inner mermaid, as well as a must-have addition for anyone who needs to regain the power.
