Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this wide-ranging work, Brockway revisits themes from his earlier work, Eco nomics: What Went Wrong, and Why, and Some Things To Do About It ( LJ 2/1/85). Here his idea that economics is a humanistic discipline is more forcefully expressed and its philosophical underpinnings more deeply explored. In spite of uneven chapters, his message of putting people at the heart of economics comes shining through. This work would be most accessible to readers with a broad background in economics and thus is most appropriate for large university libraries.
- Richard C. Schiming, Mankato State Univ., Minn.

Format: Paperback
Wow. This book has 1 review only. I took home 5 books from the library on economics and financial history to try to beef up on a subject that I didn't have a decent cultural literacy of and this was the only enjoyable book. This book is a masterpiece. For those of you who may of had the regular macro and micro intro classes, but feel like you don't really understand economics, this book is for you. It's very comprehensive, but completely readable at all times (on occasion a word might need to be looked up), and destroys classical economics as having the fallacy of being determined (so many subjects tend to leave out the problem of freedom...people hate talking about freedom..they don't like to spend time on an abtuse philosophical concept..but it's necessary! He uses common sense to destroy commonly held so-called common-sense beliefs in the economy. This book does everything it set out to do and more. Get it!
