Introducing Uneconomics: February 6 to 12 on openDemocracy
The west’s financial crisis has exposed great failures of economic thinking as well as policy. This week, we launched “Uneconomics”. It challenges the dominance of orthodox economists. They have taken over the thinking and language of both policy-making and media coverage of business and finance. Their wretched narrowness has reinforced the crisis. A quite different approach is needed, that is anthropological and social. The editor, and author of the opening blast, is Will Davies. If he is right, you won’t read a debate like this anywhere else.
