Economics for the Rest of Us

The New Press | August 19, 2019 | 217 pages

A lively and accessible debunking of the two elements that make economics the 'science' of the rich: the definition of what is efficient and the theory of how wages are determined. The first is used to justify the cruellest policies, the second to justify grand larceny. Filled with lively examples, from food riots in Indonesia to eminent domains in Connecticut, Adler's book shows how today's dominant economic theories evolved, how they explicitly favour the rich over the poor and why they're not the only or best options.
