Micromotives and Macrobehavior. was originally published over twenty-five years ago, yet the stories it tells feel just as fresh today. And the subject of these stories -- how small and seemingly meaningless decisions and actions by individuals often lead to significant unintended consequences for a large group -- is more important than ever. In one famous example, Thomas C. Schelling shows that a slight-but-not-malicious preference to have neighbors of the same race eventually leads to completely segregated populations.

This is the fundamental work behind the concept of "tipping points," recently brought into vogue by Malcolm Gladwell's book. Thomas Schelling was awarded a Nobel Prize partly for the work in this book. His Nobel lecture, contained in this new edition, is also very interesting. It puts forward the idea that the longer countries refrained from using nuclear bombs after WW2, the harder it became for a country to violate this social norm (not using nukes) - a kind of moral-capital accumulation.

Thomas Schelling might be my new favorite economist, but the book used enough math to make my eyes glaze over. Although probably not intentional, the book thoroughly debunks the the idea that "the invisible hand" of the market always guides society to a socially good result. In particular, Schelling explains how somewhat innocuous racial preferences can lead to almost totally segregated neighborhoods.
