Abstract

In The Econocracy: The Perils of Leaving Economics to the Experts, Joe Earle, Cahal Moran and Zach Ward-Perkins argue that the logic of economics has come to shape how political issues are framed and addressed, leading to a deep divide between economics ‘experts’ and the majority of citizens who have grown increasingly suspicious of the discipline. This concise and well-researched book is a timely critique of the state of economics today and may empower ‘citizen economists’ to become part of the debate, writes Maxine Montaigne. (A blog for us by The Econocracy authors is also available here.)
