The Nature of Goods and the Goods of Nature is a voyage into the realm of the economist and the fascinating way in which they view the world. With striking pragmatism, Estefania Santacreu-Vasut takes a cornerstone of economic thinking ― the nature of goods ― which, once understood, provides the reader with a lens that demolishes the argument for anti-globalisation. Journeying through the eyes of a visitor to a bookshop who happens to find an unused train ticket tucked into the end pages of a story, Estefania Santacreu-Vasut and Tom Gamble unfold a voyage of awareness that links our everyday experiences with the economic theory of the nature of goods to the goods of nature ― human nature, social nature, and the environment ― that are essential for all of us in our quest for happiness and prosperity.
