'An original and vital contribution to understanding politics.' – Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist
How to solve the world's trickiest political problems?
In Reframe, Eric Knight explains how a change of focus can reveal a solution that was lying just outside your frame of vision.
From terrorism to global warming, from border security to high finance, he brings a new perspective that is both exhilarating and useful.
Why can't we eliminate terrorism by killing terrorists?
Why can't we learn anything about climate change by talking about the weather?
Why can't we resolve immigration tensions by building higher fences?
And what do fishermen in Turkey have to teach us about international relations?
This is an optimistic, lucid and original book by a brilliant young Australian thinker.
In the tradition of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point, Reframe brings a fresh perspective to our most complex political problems. Australian economist and Rhodes scholar, Eric Knight, explains how a change of focus can reveal a solution that was lying just outside your frame of vision.
Knight shows that the way we view a problem is integral to how we solve it. Reframe is not just a book about thinking. Knight shines a new light on the key political issues of our time: terrorism, finance, immigration and climate change. Reframe provides new tools so we can make meaningful political choices. This is an optimistic, lucid, original book by a literary star in the making.
