The Mind of the Market: The Case for Capitalism from an Evolutionary Perspective

An excerpt from The CATO Institute (full article and video):

In his new book, The Mind of the Market: Compassionate Apes, Competitive Humans, and Other Tales from Evolutionary Economics, Michael Shermer examines such questions as: How did we evolve from ancient hunter-gatherers to modern consumer-traders? Why are people so irrational when it comes to money and business?
