Michael Klein, Something for Nothing

“Michael W. Klein’s novel Something for Nothing is a fun romp through the life of a young, aspiring academic as he struggles to find his way in the world. It is often amusing, sometimes edifying, and always entertaining.”
N. Gregory Mankiw, Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics, Harvard University, and author of Principles of Economics

“Klein effectively taps into fears that every researcher must have felt at one time or another about the possible fragility of his or her results, and gives us a window to view how a desperate but otherwise normal everyday person may be tempted to behave unethically. He does so with humor and a heavy dose of irony. Klein perfectly captures the bumbling, bungling, and cluelessness of (at least some) new Economics PhDs beginning their careers.”
Nelson C. Mark, Alfred C. DeCrane Jr. Professor of Economics, University of Notre Dame

Michael W. Klein is William L. Clayton Professor of International Economic Affairs at the Fletcher School, Tufts University.
