The Consequences of Economic Rhetoric
Consequences of Economic Rhetoric by Arjo Klamer
Book DescriptionThe field of economics proves to be a matter of metaphor and storytelling - its mathematics is metaphoric and its policy-making is narrative. Economists have begun to realize this and to rethink how they speak. This volume is the result of a conference held at Wellesley College, involving both theoretical and applied economists, that explored the consequences of the rhetoric and the conversation of the field of economics.

Speaking of Economics, Paperback (April 2006)
Shows that economics is as much about how people interact as it is about the models, the mathematics, the econometrics, the theories and the ideas that come from the aggregate of economics literature. This book views the subject as a collection of conversations, and examines fundamental disagreements over the nature and purpose of the discipline.
