Description - Social Limits to Economic Theory by Jonathan D. Mulberg

Economics seeems incapable of providing an adequate description of the economic world, let alone dealing with the most pressing of social problems such as widespread poverty and the destruction of the environment. Social Limits to Economic Theory critically examines the current asocial nature of economic theory. As an alternative it also looks at the prospects for a new, progressive political economy, based on notions of community and justice, and incorporating environmental and ethical considerations. In demonstrating that modern economics is far from being a value-free science, Social Limits to Economic Theory sheds much light on the hidden history of economics. It thus serves as an excellent introduction to critial non-orthodox economics. Particular attention is focussed on the The Austrian and Institutional schools as well as on the philosophy of Economics and the green social and political economy. The book will be of interest to anyone concerned with critiques of economics or with its ethical and environmental dimension.
