Editorial Reviews

?At first this seems to be an insider's book, but it deserves an audience much beyond economists and specialists dedicated to advice-giving in less-developed countries.... Currie examines the fundamental paradox: the science of economics seldom is sufficiently strong to warrant unequivocal scientifically based policy advice. Political, social, and value judgments intrude and usually carry the day.... Reading the book should humble economists (undergraduate and up) and warn prospective seekers of economic advice.?-Choice
