Interesting if Slightly Trite Read: The Price of Everything

Eduardo Porter of The New York Times editorial board just published a new book, The Price of Everything: Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do. For those of you well-steeped in the intricacies of economics, this book will contain few or no surprises, but for others, it offers an interesting look into how economists think about the world we live in, as well as a number of practical applications of economic thinking.

Bloomberg has a largely positive take on the book, and you can check out the full text of the introduction over at Boing Boing. It probably won't jump to the top of my to-read list, but I might grab the audio book to listen to the next time I'm flying or driving a good distance.
