Excerpt from Boettke:
As Deirdre McCloskey points out about the work, Emily shows that economy is not a machine, and that social order is embedded in culture and civil society. To do this, McCloskey says, and to do this well, you need an “empirical yet Austrian economics” and Emily’s work is the “sterling example” of this genre.
