This important new book introduces students to the fundamental ideas of heterodox ecomics, presented in a clear and accessible way by top heterodox scholars. It offers t only a critique of the dominant approach to ecomics, but also a positive and constructive alternative. Students interested in an explanation of the real world will find the heterodox approach t only satisfying, but ultimately better able to explain a money-using ecomy prone to periods of instability and crises. Key features of this textbook include: * A n-conventional understanding of ecomic analysis on a number of relevant topics * Deep and convincing criticism of orthodox thinking * Discussion of the crucial importance of money, banking and finance today * Analysis of the roots of the 2008 global financial crisis * A presentation of the features of sustainable development. Students of ecomics at all levels can use this textbook to deepen their understanding of the heterodox approach, the fundamental roots of the 2008 global financial crisis and the need to rethink ecomics afresh.
