Human Scale Revisited: A New Look at the Classic Case for a Decentralist Future

Kirkpatrick Sale

Human Scale Revisited: A New Look at the Classic Case for a Decentralist Future by Kirkpatrick Sale

Big government, big business, big everything: Kirkpatrick Sale took giantism to task in his 1980 classic, Human Scale, and today takes a new look at how the crises that imperil modern America are the inevitable result of bigness grown out of control-and what can be done about it.

The result is a keenly updated, carefully argued case for bringing human endeavors back to scales we can comprehend and manage-whether in our built environments, our politics, our business endeavors, our energy plans, or our mobility.

Sale walks readers back through history to a time when buildings were scaled to the...

Globalization and India's Economic Integration

Baldev Raj Nayar

Globalization and India's Economic Integration by Baldev Raj NayarA common critique of globalization is that it causes economic segmentation and even disintegration of the national economy. Baldev Raj Nayar's examination of India's political economy challenges this critique by demonstrating that, on balance, the active role of the Indian state in the areas of economic planning, fiscal federalism, and tax reform, and the inherently expanding character of the market in areas such as trade, investment, entrepreneurship, and migration have resulted in improved economic integration and not increased segmentation. While globalization has its benefits, such as higher...

Growth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World

H. L. T. Quan

Growth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World by H. L. T. QuanGrowth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World, by H.L.T. Quan, is a radical critique of development as a modern project. Using three historical cases (Brazil-Japan, China-Africa, and US-Iraq), Quan probes the discursive practices of modern development, exploring the coercive and juridical dimensions of trade, diplomacy and war and their impact. This study builds on the critical works of neoliberalism, capitalist development, and empire to lay the groundwork for an honest assessment of neoliberal economics and foreign conducts and their impact on human life.

Economism: Bad Economics and the Rise of Inequality

In order to illuminate the fallacies of economism, James Kwak first offers a primer on supply and demand, market equilibrium, and social welfare: the underpinnings of most popular economic arguments. Then he provides...
