Thank goodness for a lot of travel coming up.
One that just arrived and is very tantalising is Big Ideas in Macroeconomics: A non-technical view, by Kartik Athreay, flagged up to me by a comment on this blog.

Noah Smith has blogged about the book already, and my prior is that I’ll agree with him, although Herb Gintis has a friendly quote on the back cover. Naturally I’ll keep an open mind!
