About me





Private library

Tell me what is in your library, and I will tell you who you are (and ask you to borrow it to me). Over the years, I gathered a collection of academic books – primarily thanks to the generous personal budgets for book purchases at University of Oslo and Lund University – some of which might be difficult to find in public libraries, especially in the Czech Republic. Most of them are on economics of innovation, technology change and economic development, but there are also some from econometrics, history, sociology, political science and other disciplines. If you are my co-author, colleague or a Ph.D. student at CERGE-EI, try your luck, perhaps they might be available to you too; on a good day :o). See the list of academic books in my library at Libib and/or in a comma-separated csv file.


What are the best books I have ever read? It is a hard call but if I had to choose the three most memorable readings of my life, here they come:


Theory of Economic Development: An Inquiry into Profits, Capital, Credit, Interest, and the Business Cycle (Social Science Classics Series), The          GUNS, GERMS AND STEEL - A Short History of Everybody for the Last 13,000 Years          Sapiens a brief history of humankind


And in fact just about everything by Schumpeter, Diamond and Harari is great!
