Book Launch Event: Sudipta Sarangi Publishes The Economics of Small Things

Sudipta Sarangi, Head of the Department of Economics and PPE Stakeholder member, has published a book with the title The Economics of Small Things.

The book should be of broad interest. It addresses questions such as: Why are all the good mangoes exported from India? Why should we pay our house help more? Why do we hesitate to reach out for that last piece of cake in a gathering? Are more choices really better? Why do many of us offer a prayer but are reluctant to wear a seatbelt while driving? Are Indians hardwired to get grumpy at a peer’s success? What’s common between a box of cereal and your résumé?

The book will be launched virtually as a joint event between IIT Bombay and the publishers Penguin India. The book launch event will be a conversation between Professor Sarangi (Virginia Tech), Professor Basu (Cornell University), and Professor Narayanan (IIT Bombay). 

Please join this virtual event on November 23, 2020, at 9am (EST). Here is is the Zoom link:
