“Eduardo Porter offers an engaging rumination proving the adage that everything has its price. And he means everything: work, women, even faith and the future, writes Laura Impellizzeri. “While an elegant and enjoyable read, “The Price of Everything” is also timely: Porter makes a strong case in the wake of the recession that it’s silly for economists and policy makers to assume people act according to rational assessments or even in their own best interest.”
