Steven Poole's non-fiction choice - review
Just as useful as these blood-spattered executions are the almost loving histories of how such ideas eg, that "a rising tide lifts all boats"; or what glories in the name of "Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium" got started in the first place. Zombies don't kill people; people who make zombies do.

The prose is blackly amusing in its implacable hostility to the pseudo-ideas it explicates "a hortatory noise — another nonfalsifiable grunt" , giving a particularly persuasive demonstration of the vacuity of "strategy" as a business term.
