Michael Gibbs tells us what books make it to his recommended reading list. As Clinical Professor of Economics Faculty Director, Executive MBA program, The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, his list is a must-see:

Fault Lines by Raghuram Rajan

“Every executive and EMBA student must grapple with the financial crisis reverberating through the global economy. This is the best book on this topic. Raghu voiced serious concerns several years before the crisis occurred. In this book he provides a thoughtful and thought-provoking analysis of the economic, political and demographic causes.”

Race Against the Machine by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee

“This book explores how the information technology revolution is transforming organizations, work, and the labour market. These changes began around 1980 but continue today, with important implications for how to design and manage your organization, and your own career.”

Launching the Innovation Renaissance by Alex Tabarrok

“Innovation and growth are needed to address the problems facing the global economy. In a nice short book, Tabarrok discusses reforms to patent law, education and immigration to create a more dynamic economy. The lessons are relevant for any economy.”
