Bloomberg: Best Books of 2012

Brad DeLong:

The best thing I have read this year is “The Age of Capital: 1848-1875” by Eric Hobsbawm. There is no better book for understanding both the sheer power of modern economic growth to transform lives and societies and the opportunities and problems that such growth and transformation create for those who are lucky/unlucky enough to get caught in the process.
