Description

Modern economics makes much of its claim to be impartial, objective and value-free but it is unable to address our most immediate problems such as widespread environmental degradation and persistent poverty. In Social Limits to Economic Theory Jon Mulberg argues for a new progressive political economy, based on notions of community and justice and incorporating environmental and ethical considerations. In doing so he provides the best introduction to date to critical, non-orthodox economics.
