About this product
- DescriptionThis critical and informed protest against the absurdity and dishonesty of neoclassical ecomic theory as it has progressed through the 20th century down to the present, sheds new light on the predicament faced in 2012. In The Road to Co-operation, Pearson highlights the dangers of using unrealistic mathematical models of human, organisational and market behaviour to guide policy prescriptions. He shows the damage done to real ecomies, markets, firms and people, by the unwarranted trust in unregulated markets, proclaimed by Friedman and colleagues, promulgated by academia and adopted by the financial-political-corporate nexus, w dominant in Anglo-American jurisdictions. Though real markets work better than kwn alternatives, Pearson makes the crucial distinction between the real and the speculative-financial, where totally different realities apply. Failure to make that distinction has transformed financial sectors from supportive of the real ecomy, to exploitative and sometimes fraudulent. Pearson provides a comparative analysis of corporate governance theory, law, and practice in different jurisdictions, including the self-destruction of post-mature Anglo-American governance with the more robust custom and practice in the industrial ecomies of Germany and Japan and emerging ecomies of China and India, which all exercise care for their real ecomic strengths and provide object lessons for governance in UK and US. The Road to Co-operation proposes realistic changes in policy and practice, in the context of sustainability, which would be prerequisite to recapturing real long term ecomic success on a co-operative and n-exploitative foundation. It will be invaluable for today's business faculty, students and practitioners as well as the 'madmen in authority'.
