In Detail

Tomás Sedlácek described by The Yale Economic Review as one of the five most influential minds in his field worked as an economic advisor to President Václav Havel and latter to the Minister of Finance. He is mainly known for 'Economics of Good and Evil', a book on philosophy of economics, an international bestseller, which received positive critics from academic as well as popular press. The book has received one of the most prestigious literary prizes in economics, Frankfurt book fair prize for the best book on economics in 2012.
