"The Skeptical Economist" will challenge us all to examine the assumptions behind the economics of our current way of life. It rediscovers the ethics at the heart of economics. Jonathan Aldred rejects the story told by other popular economics books. Responding to Western malaise about quality of life, and a growing curiosity about economics and its relevance to these concerns, Aldred argues that economics is not an agreed body of knowledge or an objective science. In reality economics is built on ethical foundations - distinctive and controversial views about how we ought to live, what we value and why. This revealing and entertaining book exposes these hidden assumptions, and opens up the black box of modern economics to reveal that the conventional wisdom is not what it appears to be.
