Atlantic Monthly correspondent Ellen Ruppel Shell uncovers the true cost—-in economic, political, and psychological terms—-of our penchant for making and buying things as cheaply as possible.

The New York Times - Laura Shapiro

Ruppel Shell doesn't conclude with any grand ideas for reshaping the world's economy…But she doesn't need to formulate grand ideas here. She's delivered something much more valuable: a first-rate job of reporting and analysis. Pay full price for this book, if you can stand to. It's worth it.
