A fantastic collection of witty, insightful, and often outrageous Financial Times columns that answer readers’ personal dilemmas using the latest economic theory.

Tim Harford employs his idiosyncratic style to explain economic principles so that anyone can understand them — and reveals how they apply to (and can solve) issues in everyday life. Does money buy happiness? Is “the one” really out there? Can cities be greener than farms? When’s the best time to settle down? Can you really “dress for success”? How can I stop my girlfriend from eating my dessert? Harford provides brilliant, hilarious, and weirdly wise answers to these and other questions. Arranged by topic, easy to read, and hard to put down, Dear Undercover Economist is a provocative, compassionate, and indispensable perspective on anything that may irk or ail you — a book well worth the investment.
