Charles Darwin, Economist

The Origin of Species is a better guide to our economy than The Wealth of Nations.

Robert Frank is an economics professor at Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management, a columnist for the New York Times, a distinguished senior fellow at Demos and a member of the AI editorial board. This essay is adapted from The Darwin Economy: Liberty, Competition, and the Common Good, just out from Princeton University Press.
