market economy can be vigorous and productive,
but also amazingly stupid and degenerate.
The world is now muchengaged in working out
how mindless markets can be made to function
better with the help of other institutions.
In this striking book, Rajni Bakshi insightfully explores
how the working of markets can be improved
through a modern version of the combination
of trade and conversation
that characterizes the age-old bazaars."
