Transforming Economics: Perspectives on the Critical Realist Project (Economics As Social Theory)
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415369665 | edition 2004 | PDF | 336 pages | 1,2 mb
Economics has become polarized. On the one hand there is a body of economists who concern themselves with progressing their discipline via an increasing use of mathematical modeling. On the other hand, there are economists who believe passionately that in order for economics to be useful it needs to take account of its history, its impact on society and its real world applications.
The contributors to this book fix their scholarly glare on the heterodox section of economics, and in particular upon critical realist approaches to the subject. Experts from a variety of perspectives have come together in these pages to examine the impact and usefulness of critical realism in relation to the different spheres within economics.
Notable for its contributions from such distinguished figures as Clive Granger, Edward J. Nell and Peter J. Boettke - this book deserves to find a ready audience across the economics spectrum.
