Ever since Adam Smith, the central teaching of economics has been that free markets provide us with material well-being, as if by an invisible hand. Nobel-Prize winner Robert J Shiller delivers a fundamental challenge to this insight, arguing that markets, inherently filled with tricks and traps, harm as well as help us. He shows how manipulation and deception  affects everyone, and explains why, at a time when we are better off than ever before in history, all too many of us are leading lives of quiet desperation when it comes to finance and economics.
