Ebook Description

‘Bill Phillips was an inventor, an adventurer, a hero and a relentlessly original thinker. He was the Indiana Jones of economi and Alan Bollard has written a definitive biography.’ - Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist and The Undercover Economist Strikes Back How did an electrician from New Zealand with a few mediocre grades in sociology write the second most cited economi article in the world, build the MONIAC - a revolutionary computing machine - and quickly rise to become one of the world’s leading economists? From a remote Dannevirke farm to wartime POW camps to London’s intellectual world, the Bill Phillips story is a true New Zealand tale of adventurous spirit and can-do energy.
