Free Lunch revisited

A second edition of Free Lunch is planned and this is your chance to influence its content. For those familiar with the first edition, and those who are not, suggestions are welcome for some of the topic areas/ideas/great economists/etc, that should be included in the new and improved version. Many thanks.


I found the book to be an excellent introduction to the 'basics' and I am afraid that any further development of the book may not be required. Like philosophy, economics has a way of going in cycles and coming to the same point again and again.

Howver, as a reviewer in Amazon suggested, we need to have the next book - at a higher level - for those who have already read this book..

Can we have that please? And leave us to enjoy the present one again and again...

The next update should reflect
1.The effect of the great distortion of the UK economy due to high % of owner occupiers and high capital COST of entering the market. This was runaway inflation, not the 2.5% shown as rpi.
2. Money supply in the period 1997 to 2008 rose dramatically. Did this provide the fuel for the house price increase or was it merely a result of it.
3. Are we still in uncharted territory or can he now see a way to make sense of what is happening?
