David Murray as Sen Groupie

In an interview with the WSJ, Future Fund Chairman David Murray shows a somewhat reassuring preference for serious economics over business school schlock:

WSJ: Do you have a favorite business book?

Mr. Murray: No. The book that really made an impression on me was a book by [Indian economist and Harvard University professor] Armartya Kumar Sen called “Development As Freedom.” It explains the linkage between the system of government and democracy on one hand and business on another, and they are interrelated; they can’t be as easily separated as people make out.  Business has no chance of thriving reliably for its owners under a rule of law that doesn’t embody democracy, freedom and property rights.

Here’s another book we hope Murray has read.
