Reviews


"Masterful. [A] delightful and entertaining book."
--Elaine Bernard, executive director, Labor &Worklife Program at Harvard Law School

"Reminds us of a basic, humbling fact that's been forgotten in our market-obsessed world: there is really no such thing as 'the economy, ' there are only people."
--Eric Laursen, co-author of Understanding the Crash

"Thoughtful arguments... This excellent book will add a controversial perspective on critical issues of our time."
--Booklist

"A stimulating introduction to contested economic theory... Highly recommended."
--Choice
