This detailed history of how economics swayed public policy during the last 60 years has sentences and conceptual threads that would challenge any voice pro. Narrator Suzie Althens has a pleasing vocal tone and melodic pitch range that any narrator would envy. But occasionally her vocal flourishes and placement of pauses interrupt a sentence or conceptual thread that needs more attuned phrasing. This is an absorbing, illuminating audiobook, a lively retrospective on how the discipline of economics intersected with the politicians who shaped and implemented public policy. It's about the Quants, the math-oriented economists, versus the social progressives, who focus more on the human impact of policy. With the history of economic thinking buzzing throughout, this is top-shelf writing that political junkies will enjoy. T.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
