NEW YORK--()--Ed Conard, author of the New York Times bestseller Unintended Consequences, was one of 2012's ten most-searched authors according to Google's Zeitgeist annual search trend report.
“I am pleased to see that Unintended Consequences has contributed to the national debate over the importance of economic policies that promote investment and risk-taking to the growth of the U.S. economy”
Conard was joined by other acclaimed political and economic authors including New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg, productivity expert Brian Souza, and veteran political biographer Edward Klein. The list also included popular and acclaimed novelists.
“I am pleased to see that Unintended Consequences has contributed to the national debate over the importance of economic policies that promote investment and risk-taking to the growth of the U.S. economy," said Conard.
The Zeitgeist rankings are based on over 1 trillion searches Google Search in 2012.
Last month, Conard also joined the prestigious Washington, D.C.-based American Enterprise Institute as its latest visiting scholar. Conard will focus on the impacts of taxes, government policies and finance on risk-taking and innovation. He was previously managing director of the New York office of Bain Capital.
Observed AEI President Arthur Brooks about the recent appointment: "Ed's thoughtful thinking and writing about the relationship between investment, risk taking, income inequality, and economic growth provides a useful corrective to a great deal of the very popular -- and very wrong -- conventional wisdom about how America's economy functions."
