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.
