grant our authority to. Focusing on leadership in
discourse, the book sets out to explore how the notion of
leadership has been articulated, studied and debated by
academics, but also by practitioners, journalists, and
others who seek to influence the thoughts of others.

What can economic theory tell us about these changes and
where they might lead? While economic evolution is in
many respects unique, it nonetheless needs to be seen
within the broader context of natural evolution. By
exploring this complex relationship, Rethinking Economic
Evolution demonstrates the significance of an
evolutionary economic theory.

making cognitive and emotional shortcuts and avoiding
cognitive and emotional errors such as overconfidence,
hindsight, exaggerated fear, and unrealistic hope. And it
guides us to banish ignorance, gain knowledge, and

way to what we want.

332.11 QVI 145899
In these six lectures given at the Norwegian Royal
Academy of Science and Letters, the author draws on his
deep experience at Norges Bank to outline key principles
on which to base central bank policy. The first two
lectures emphasize the importance of credibility and
ensuring accountability. Lectures 3-6 can be viewed as
applying these key principles to specific issues. The
lectures do not break new ground - indeed, the author
nicely illustrates how these principles have been
articulated in literature, history and politics. Rather,
the lectures emphasize the lessons to be drawn by
applying these principles to central banking history with
primary reference to the case of Norway, such as managing
Norway-s sovereign wealth fund and designing institutions
that will produce good policy outcomes.

Every policy relies on explicit or implicit assumptions
about how people make choices. Those assumptions
typically rest on an idealized model of how people think,
rather than an understanding of how everyday thinking
actually works. This year-s World Development Report
argues that a more realistic account of decision-making
and behavior will make development policy more effective.
