MFOB FEATURED BOOK: The Inner Lives of Markets: How People Shape Them—And They Shape Us

America’s economic revolution isn’t just driven by technology. It’s about markets. From the auction theories that power Google’s ad sales algorithms to the models that online retailers use to prevent internet fraud, even the most high-tech modern businesses are empowered by theory first envisioned by economists. We’re all participants in this revolution–every time you hire a car on Lyft or click on an ad, you’re reshaping our social institutions and our lives. This lucid, wry book explores the transformation of markets, revealing the blueprint for how we work, live, and shop, and offering wisdom for how to do it better.
