Aldred, Jonathan (2009) The Skeptical Economist: Revealing the Ethics inside Economics. London: Earthscan.
Imagine a philosopher waxing eloquent about economics….not a pretty picture. On one page, with the exception of three lines, it’s all one paragraph. Thank heavens he’s good a using analogies. It’s actually a fairly interesting read, as he rips apart the prevailing assumptions of economists, which include:
Economic growth is always good
People should get what they want
People act rationally
More choice is better
