What a review of Who Gets What and Why would look like if my name were Andy...

The Nation gives me a trendier first name in a review of Who Gets What and Why.

The challenge of designing Asia-proof markets:

"One positive consequence of the global financial crisis is a complete rethink of the foundations of economic analysis. Of the thousands of ideas that are beginning to challenge economic orthodoxy, two books stand out. The first is Nassim Taleb's "Anti-fragility", which challenged the whole basis of conventional risk management. The other is Nobel Laureate Andy Roth's "Who Gets What - and Why: The New Economics of Matchmaking and Market Design", which returns to the fundamentals of markets."
