Estefania Santacreu-Vasut, Professor at ESSEC, and Tom Gamble, International Projects Manager at ESSEC, take us into the realm of the economist and the fascinating way in which they view the world. With striking pragmatism, the book takes a cornerstone of economic thinking — the nature of goods — which, once understood, provides the reader with a lens that demolishes the argument for anti-globalisation. Journeying through the eyes of a visitor to a bookshop who happens to find an unused train ticket tucked into the end pages of a story, the co-authors unfold a voyage of awareness that links our everyday experiences with the economic theory of the nature of goods to the goods of nature — human nature, social nature, and the environment — that are essential for all of us in our quest for happiness and prosperity.
