Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Hendrik Bright on September 8, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book seems to come from the fifties of the sixties, but it has only be published in 2008! It gives criticism on the neoclassical market theory. A lot is well funded, like the fact that contracts are important when assessing market characteristics, but the reasoning is old-fashioned, without any reference to empirical studies.
It is true that the neoclassical oversimplification is ideologic, sometimes ressembling more religion than science. Unfortunately, the author does not succeed in presenting an alternative that is useful for further research. Like many heterodox economist, he gives lots of criticism, but no viable alternative. This is a good book for those eager to learn the flaws of neoclassical economics.
