“The co-recipient of the 2012 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences introduces what he calls the new economics of matchmaking and market design….Roth’s case studies illustrate how problems that obstruct successful matches can be identified economically and overcome….An exciting practical approach to economics that enables both individuals and institutions to achieve their goals without running afoul of the profit motive" (Kirkus).
