This audiobook was originally inspired by Harry Truman, who said, "Give me a one-handed economist!" As an empiricist I advocate that no ideology is right or wrong but that conditions and data are all that should drive our policymaking decisions. Every policy has a place where it will or will not work. My view on economic policymaking and world poverty is unique to the literature, since it is precisely opposite to Harry Truman's desire. The world is complex; Harry Truman needed a Three Handed Economist; one hand was never enough.
