On the philosophy of the new kiosk economics of everything

Journal of Economic Methodology 19 (3):219-230 (2012)
Abstract
The article suggests a list of principles that guide this new genre of popular writing in and on economics: the new kiosk economics of everything. These well-selling books seek to show how the simple ideas of economics are able to reveal hidden mechanisms that unify a surprising variety of everyday phenomena and by doing so entertain their readers and improve the public image of economics. It is also argued that there is a special limited sense in which this qualifies as scientific imperialism
