內容簡介

英國曼徹斯特大學後崩潰經濟學會提倡避免冒險將經濟大權交給經濟學者
探索全新經濟學,逃脫與現實脫鉤的舊經濟學

100年前並沒有經濟學的概念,然而在現代社會,經濟學儼然是一項促進社會發展的重要要素。當今的經濟學和經濟邏輯是由政客及決策者發展出來,同時也造就許多待解的經濟問題。這樣的結果也造就除了經濟學家及政客以外的人,例如人民無法深入理解經濟學,因此只好將國家經濟大權交付在經濟學家身上。本書將帶領讀者一同思索經濟學及如何找回經濟主宰權,解救目前已失衡的金融危機。要妥善解決世界面對經濟挑戰,經濟學不能只是教授古典經濟學觀點,也應該包括其他學派的觀點。全面了解複雜的經濟現象及評估經濟決定,經濟學亦要顧及社會、政治及歷史脈絡,不應滿足於抽象的理論及學說。

'Our democracy has gone profoundly wrong. Economists have failed us. Politicians have lied to us. Things must change. This fearless new book will help make it happen' Owen Jones'An explosive call for change ... packed with original research ... a case study for the question we should all be asking since the crash: how have the elites - in Westminster, in the City, in economics - stayed in charge?' Aditya Chakrabortty, Guardian'Utterly compelling and sobering' Ha-Joon ChangA century ago, the idea of 'the economy' didn't exist. Now economics is the supreme ideology of our time, with its own rules and language. The trouble is, most of us can't speak it.This is damaging democracy. Dangerous agendas are hidden inside mathematical wrappers; controversial policies are presented as 'proven' by the models of economic 'science'. Government is being turned over to a publicly unaccountable technocratic elite.The Econocracy reveals that economics is too important to be left to the economists - and shows us what we can do about it.'A rousing wake-up call from a collective of dissident graduate students ... technically assured, well-argued and informative' Robert Skidelsky'If war is too important to be left to the generals, so is the economy too important to be left to narrowly trained economists ... thought-provoking' Martin Wolf'An interesting and highly pertinent book' Noam Chomsky
