TREKONOMICS nominated for best audiobook of the year!

Dear all, friends and readers,

I just learned that Trekonomics was nominated for an Audie Award (the Oscars of audioboooks) in the business and personal development category. It is quite an honor to have a book on a list next to works by Stephen King, John Scalzi, Colson Whitehead, Siddhartha Mukherjee etc.

The audiobook, read by the amazing Oliver Wyman, can be sampled here: http://amzn.to/2avFi4F

Thank you all for your support and friendship,

As usual, Live Long, and Prosper!


ps: here’s the (image) announcement for the business/personal development category.


Wookieenomics vs Trekonomics

In anticipation of the release of Star Wars’ Rogue One at the end of the week, we recorded a podcast with Pr. Zachary Feinstein (George Washington University). Economist David Beckworth, from think tank Mercatus, hosted. 

If you recall, Zach Feinstein wrote this amazingly funny and sharp paper last year, where he came to the conclusion that the Death Star would have destroyed the Empire’s economy. Here’s his thesis, laid out in The New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/03/opinion/in-star-wars-was-the-death-star-too-big-to-fail.html

In any case, we hope you’ll enjoy the podcast and that it will give you fresh ideas to chew on while watching Rogue One


May The Force Be With You.

Dear all, 

Today is Star Trek’s 50th anniversary. 

For the occasion, I wrote this little thing for the New Yorker.

Trekonomics on Marketplace and Business Insider

Dear all,

Here is the link to the Marketplace interview:


It has been edited to a digestible 3-minutes snippet. But it’s fun.

In addition, I published this piece at Business Insider yesterday, just to mix things up a little bit: http://www.techinsider.io/10-reasons-star-trek-is-better-than-star-wars-2016-5

Enjoy! There is more coming soon.

In the meantime, for those who of you who feel so inclined, I encourage you to leave a short review of the book at Amazon.com : http://amzn.to/1UjeOoY

Thank you again for your continued support,

Live Long, and Prosper
