Macroeconomics – a pile of tsundoku?

The in-pile is suddenly teeteringly largeĀ  – thanks to Bookshelf Porn, I now have the japanese word tsundoku:

Thank goodness for a lot of travel coming up.

One that just arrived and is very tantalising is [amazon_link id=”0262019736″ target=”_blank” ]Big Ideas in Macroeconomics: A non-technical view[/amazon_link], by Kartik Athreay, flagged up to me by a comment on this blog. Regular readers will know that I’m a macro-sceptic, so it will do me good to read what looks like a sympathetic account of modern macro. 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!
