About this product
- DescriptionEcomists have often paid visits to the field of crimilogy, examining the rational logic of offending. When ecomists examine criminal activity, they imply that offenders should be treated like any other social actor making rational choices. In The Crimes of the Ecomy, Vincenzo Ruggiero turns the tables by examining a variety of ecomic schools of thought from a crimilogical perspective. Each one of these schools, he argues, justifies or even encourages harm produced by ecomic initiative. He investigates - among others - John Locke's tion of private property, Mercantilism, the Physiocrats and Malthus, and the arguments of Adam Smith, Marshall, Keynes and neoliberalism. In each of these, the author identifies the potential justification of different forms of 'crimes of the ecomy' and victimisation. This book re-examines the history of ecomic thought, assessing it as the history of a discipline which, while attempting to gain scientific status, in reality seeks to make the social harm caused by ecomics acceptable. The book will be interesting and relevant to students and scholars of social theory, crimilogy, ecomics, philosophy and politics.
