It’s measurement and metric
A new book by Edward Fullbrook
“In a deep re-think, this ground-breaking study teaches new lessons about the very foundations of economics. It is a book for philosophers and economists alike and for anyone concerned with the very core of assumptions on which economics is founded.”
Lars Syll, Malmö University, Sweden

A new ebook from the WEA
Two things seem generally agreed about Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States: it is, for good or for bad, potentially a major historical turning point and its most important determinant was the economic reality experienced today by the majority of Americans.
“This is a great book. Against the background of the dogmatism of much of modern economics, Edward Fullbrook has produced an innovative and wide-ranging argument for narrative pluralism. The timely book is beautifully written, accessible to all, provocative, extraordinarily insightful, and extremely compelling.”
Tony Lawson, Cambridge University, UK
“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
