One of my favourite radio programs yesterday featured the economist Robert J Shiller and editor-in-chief of The Economist John Micklewait.

Start the Week presented by Andrew Marr sets the cultural agenda for the week an yesterdays edition didn’t disappoint.

God is back, according to John Micklethwait, editor-in-chief of The Economist. He argues that religion is resurgent around the world, driven by consumerism, globalisation and the failure of secular politics such as communism. God is Back: How the Global Rise of Faith is Changing the World, co-written with Adrian Wooldridge, is published by Allen Lane.

Micklethwait’s book is avaliable on Amazon.

Economist Robert J Shiller argues that finances are not led by mathematical formulae but by our ‘animal spirits’. Animal Spirits: How Human Psychology Drives the Economy, and Why It Matters for Global Capitalism, co-written with George A Akerlof, is published by Princeton University Press

Likewise Schiller’s book is also on Amazon.
