About this product
- DescriptionThis book is a discourse on modelling Man in a social context. Its focus is on ecomic main-stream theory in its capacity to handle basic problems such as uncertainty, social dynamics and ethics. The point of departure is a systematic critique of the specific methodology of ecomics and its axiomatic structure. The ultimate aim is to develop an ecomic theory for a socially sustainable society. Ecomic Theory and Social Change analyses the foundation of ecomic market theory in relation to its social implications. On rejecting the axiomatic structure of the market theory Hasse Ekstedt and Angelo Fusari analyse the concept of growth and uncertainty with respect to a more realistic modelling of man, The book also addresses central political problems and their potential solutions, including permanent unemployment, distribution of income, the interaction of real and financial growth, money and the credit system. In seeking objective values to help to obtain a socially sustainable society, the book traces a tentative revision of ecomic and social thought based on a deepening of some crucial features of modern ecomies and societies. These features include invation, the connected flows of uncertainty, entrepreneurship, and their role in fuelling and characterizing ecomic growth and development. This book will be of interest to postgraduate students and researchers of Ecomics, particularly to those focussing on Ecomic Theory and Political Ecomy.
