Description - Borderlands of Economics by Nahid Aslanbeigui

In recent years there has been increasing discontent with the abstract nature of mainstream economics. Not only does this make the subject less relevant to real issues, it drives a wedge between economics and other disciplines ostensibly addressing the same issues. Borderlands of Economics explores the ways in which economics might be reconnected, both with the real world and with other disciplines. Daniel R. Fusfeld - Emeritus Professor of Economcis at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor - is renowned for his passion in extending the borderlines of economics - both to better the discipline itself and in the interests of the welfare of his fellow human beings. In this volume friends, former students and colleagues all recognise his extraordinary role as an educator, scholar and social activist. As the title of the volume suggests, most of the essays, (although they vary widely in focus, content, and, and world-view), share Fusfeld's vision; they assume a critical standpoint towards orthodox economics, economic theory, or political economy. Borderlands of Economics represents cutting-edge work in economics. Its contributors include Daniel Fisfield, Bob Coats, Warren Samuels, Andre Gunner Frank and Tom Weisskopf. This book will be critical reading for all those interested in the present development and the future of economics.
