    Economic Advice and Rhetoric

    Onno Bouwmeester
    This book compares the approaches of consultants and academic advisers and provides an in-depth analysis of their advice argumentation.

However, academics criticize them for overcharging, shallowness, and quick-and-dirty methods. So, are consultants’ clients misled or even cheated? Not necessarily. The book reveals that academics have drawbacks as well; their arguments are less balanced than those of consultants and their estimates contradict each other more. Learn More
