Ken Binmore is a mathematician turned economist and philosopher. He has held Chairs at the London School of Economics, the University of Michigan, and University College London. He has been involved in a range of applied projects, including the design of major telecom auctions in various countries across the world. As a consequence of the $35 billion raised by the telecom auction he organized in the UK, he was described by Newsweek magazine as the "ruthless, poker-playing economist who destroyed the telecom industry." He has contributed to game theory, experimental economics, evolutionary biology, and moral philosophy. His books include Natural Justice, Does Game Theory Work?, Game Theory: A Very Short Introduction, Rational Decisions, Crooked Thinking or Straight Talk?, and Imaginary Philosophical Dialogues.
