Alternative economics for the 21st century
Modern economics bases its view of the world on assumptions about nature and people laid down by Adam Smith, nearly 300 years ago, in a time when people traveled by horse and carriage and wrote by the light of candles. We now live in a globally connected, postindustrial world of digital communication and space exploration—and yet, our economic model remains stuck in the past. In Fair Economics, Irene Schoene puts forward an alternative economics that is not only relevant to our modern world of technology and industry but which also shows an awareness of environmental and geographic considerations. This book is a must-read for anyone who has questioned our economic model, wondered how the financial crash was able to happen, or wondered what we can do stop it happening again.
