The Elephant in the Brain & All the King’s Men
Principal, Armstrong Fleming & Moore Inc.
“The Elephant in the Brain” (Oxford University Press, 2018) by Kevin Simler and Robin Hanson.
“Anything tied to behavioral finance seems important at the moment, and it seems like there’s still plenty of cutting edge stuff being published. Looking forward to his one as it’s a bit of odd marriage of co-writers – Hanson is an econ professor from George Mason, and Simler is a software engineer who has a blog called ‘Melting Asphalt’ with a cult following.”
“All the King’s Men” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Co.) by Robert Penn Warren.
“Classic novel about the rise of cynical populist politician…. just seemed relevant at the moment!”
