About this product
- DescriptionPolitical constitutions alone do t guarantee democracy; a degree of ecomic equality is also essential. Yet contemporary ecomies, dominated as they are by global finance and political rent-seekers, often block the realization of democracy. The comparative essays and case studies of this volume examine the contradictory relationship between the ecomy and democracy and highlight the struggles and visions needed to make things more equitable. They explore how our collective aspirations for greater democracy might be informed by serious empirical research on the human ecomy today. If we want a better world, we must act on existing social realities.
