He is out with a terrible book with Robert Shiller that taken took its logical conclusion would result in us being corerced into living a modern day version of Mao's Revolution, including all of us being required to wear of Mao suits.
Peter Klein explains:
It is also noteworthy to keep in mind that the title of the Shiller-Akerloff book, Phishing for Phools, could also be considered "manipulation" from their perspective.
And what about the cover to their book? It sure looks manipulative to me:
Why didn't they title the book: "An Analysis of Business Paractices in the Consumer Marketing Sector" and wrap the book in a brown paper cover with just the title?
Looking at things from their perspective, the only thing I can conclude is that they are self-denying manipulators.
