In The Third Pillar, an important and timely new book, the economist describes an ongoing struggle for balance between the three building blocks of a good society: market, state and community. From one of the most important economic thinkers of our time, a brilliant and far-seeing analysis of the current populist backlash against globalization. In The Third Pillar he offers up a magnificent big-picture framework for understanding how these three forces—the state, markets, and our communities—interact, why things begin to break down, and how we can find our way back to a more secure and stable plane. Economists all too often understand their field as the relationship between markets and the state, and they leave squishy social issues for other people. All economics is actually socioeconomics — all markets are embedded in a web of human relations, values and norms. As he shows, throughout history, technological phase shifts have ripped the market out of those old webs and led to violent backlashes, and to what we now call populism. Eventually, a new equilibrium is reached, but it can be ugly and messy, especially if done wrong.

The contest has just released its long list of contenders and it's basically a rundown of must-read titles for business leaders this fall. From a couple of books about bias against women to a new account of the financial crisis to fresh takes on the likely impact of AI, these are going to be the most chattered about books in the coming months. In this pick, writer and activist Criado Perez "lays out how designers and developers have persistently excluded or downplayed women in the data sets they use, to dangerous effect," explains the FT. How will artificial intelligence develop and impact our lives?
