內容簡介


從五十項革命現代經濟的發明看人類歷史

英國《金融時報》超人氣專欄作家、《親愛的臥底經濟學家》作者提姆.哈福德(Tim Harford)新作!

英國廣播公司國際頻道(BBC World Service)廣播節目「50 Things That Made the Modern Economy」衍生作,介紹五十項革命現代經濟的發明與背後故事。

本書藉由五十項革命現代經濟的發明與背後故事,描繪人類歷史的進程。從明顯為現代人類生活帶來重大轉變的iPhone和Google,到較早期的發明如紙張、燈泡、電梯、時鐘,到早已是現代世界不可或缺的條碼、護照、銀行系統與巨無霸客機,作者除了介紹重要發明與其幕後功臣的小故事,也揭露它們與看似毫無關聯的事件與現象之間的關聯,如條碼為什麼導致街角小店逐漸消失?《達文西密碼》和雷曼兄弟公司的破產有什麼關係?留聲機為什麼會擴大不平等的狀況?

本書介紹五十項發明如何為人類生活帶來重大轉變,也探討我們可以從中學到什麼啟示,以作為未來發明的靈感,是結合歷史、經濟與傳記的有趣作品。
