Journalist and senior fellow at the Regional Plan Association in New York City, Alex Marshall, author of How Cities Work and Beneath the Metropolis, visits with his newest work, The Surprising Design of Market Economies (University of Texas Press). "This book debunks the free market orthodoxy that markets are 'natural' things that should not be meddled with. Taking us through history from the Athenian 'owl' coin to the Founding Fathers, from the American Civil War to Korean economic development, from Gone with the Wind to the Sundance Film Festival, the book shows how all markets are actually built upon carefully designed 'artificial' structures ... An eye-opener." – Ha-Joon Chang.
