About this product
- DescriptionA lively and accessible debunking of the two elements that make ecomics the 'science' of the rich: the definition of what is efficient and the theory of how wages are determined. The first is used to justify the cruellest policies, the second to justify grand larceny. Filled with lively examples, from food riots in Indonesia to eminent domains in Connecticut, Adler's book shows how today's dominant ecomic theories evolved, how they explicitly favour the rich over the poor and why they're t the only or best options.
