Edmund Phelps's Mass Flourishing in Bloomberg's Books of the Year
Bjorn Wahlroos, Chairmen of Nordea Bank AB, selects Edmund Phelps's Mass Flourishing as one of Bloomberg's Books of the Year: "[Phelps] takes off where Schumpeter and Hayek ended, to explain what it is that makes our economies modern. Against a rich and insightful historical background he draws a picture of the market institutions and social traditions that promote innovation and thus economic growth. In the process he redraws many political front lines and provides us with an answer to those who believe more public funding for investment and innovation is the road forward for our stagnant economies. It is a marvelous book that deserves to be read by everyone, but particularly by those entrusted with the design of the European future."

Mass Flourishing named one of the Financial Times's Books of the Year
Edmund Phelps's Mass Flourishing was named one of the Financial Times's Books of the Year by Martin Wolf, who writes, "Phelps, a Nobel laureate in economics, defies categorisation. In this extraordinary book – part history, part economics and part philosophy – he proclaims individual enterprise as the defining characteristic of modernity. But he fears this dynamism is lost. One does not have to agree to recognise that Phelps has addressed some of the big questions about our future."
