This is just a few lectures and papers published elsewhere compiled together, but both Sen and Maskin are good writers, so it provides a very useful introduction to Arrow's Impossibility Theorem. I can't imagine why anyone would want such a thing, except for fairly academic reasons. In order to read the proof, it would be helpful to be at least somewhat familiar with how preferences work, so best for students in the second half of their undergraduate degree. Alternatively, if taking the proof as given, it would of use to any student who has completed first year micro. The technical details of the proof are not particularly illuminating - none of the intermediate steps really mean much, so you can skip it.… (lisätietoja)

In this sweeping philosophical work, Amartya Sen proposes that the murderous violence that has riven our society is driven as much by confusion as by inescapable hatred. Challenging the reductionist division of people by race, religion, and class, Sen presents an inspiring vision of a world that can be made to move toward peace as firmly as it has spiraled in recent years toward brutality and war.

You will be impressed if you look at India's GDP growth rate. But GDP and its growth rate are simplistic measures to understand how a country is faring. India's middle-class is large enough to keep the wheels of the economy chugging along.
Yet, unless everyone participates in economic and social growth, the engine will sputter and die.
In this book, Jean Dreze and Amartya Sen have done an admirable job in analysing India's 'uncertain glory' as they call it.
Our under-investment in public hygiene, public health and education is appalling and alarming.

The authors have managed to walk the tightrope with admirable felicity. They point out the good and the bad. And they do so in a balanced manner, with the proper use of data.

What are their recommendations? I miss this. Barring this omission, the book is excellent. What is sad, is that the book remains relevant even now, years after it was published.

An amazingly well thought-out treatment of economic development, its goals, its impact on people, and how those people (i.e. the human capital) feeds back into economic development. Sen is careful and thoughtful--and undogmatic--in establishing a framework by which we can enhance the freedom of individuals as well as grow economies.
