Tyranny of the Market

Why You Can’t Always Get What You Want

«This is a book for all the people out there who sit down and flip through hundreds of channels but never seem to find something they like. In it Joel Waldfogel, one of America's most interesting economists, shows exactly how many people in the marketplace end up stranded, unable to get what they want. It's a provocative statement on why free markets don't necessarily make everyone better off.»

«The Tyranny of the Market presents a fascinating account of why the market fails to satisfy preference minorities.»

Fiona Scott Morton, Yale School of Management

«Joel Waldfogel takes up the mythology of the market responding to our wants and desires, and shows how it often leaves out many people who are unable to get very much of what they want...This book could be very persuasive to those who will not listen to voices that have an explicitly progressive agenda.»
