About the book:

The opinions and advice of economists matter not just to politicians, corporations and business people, but to all of us. This study of graduate education in economics aims to show how economists are trained and what values and techniques are instilled during this training. Blending analysis and anecdote, the authors offer conclusions about which qualities and skills are encouraged and which are discouraged as students progress to the PhD, the badge of certification for the discipline. The book rests on extensive survey data and original interviewing of students, who reflect on their experiences in their own words. It is intended for economists, economists-to-be and anyone who reads, works with or just needs to understand economists.
