WEA Online Conference
5th November – 5th December 2016
“Essential reading for anyone opposed to planetary suicide. Capitalism is waging a war against nature. And until this becomes obvious to masses of people, we will be limited to reformist projects that can only slow the drive to oblivion, but not stop it. As Smith reminds us, ‘It is no exaggeration to say that this is the most critical moment in human history.'”
David Klein, Truthout | Book Review
With contributions from John T. Harvey, L. Randall Wray, Scott T. Fullwiler, William Mitchell, Juan Carlos Moreno-Brid, Noel Pérez-Benítez, and Héctor J. Villarreal
This book introduces 40 critical pointers for those who wish to see the theory in a broader, more realistic context. The material is suitable for introductory and intermediate courses and can be included selectively by students for additional reading or in lectures or tutorials as discussion points.
Economic Theory, as currently taught in universities and colleges all over the world, is deadly to the welfare of mankind. The WEA Pedagogy Blog, curated by Asad Zaman, explains why and what can we do to change the state of affairs.
