Beyond the Invisible Hand - Groundwork for a New Economics Hardcover – Import 26 Nov 2010
Product Description Review "Alluring... [Basu's] latest book subtitled Groundwork for a New Economics aims to show that many economists have dogmatically accepted capitalist theories as fact and have failed as a result to scrutinize their own discipline... Basu devotes the bulk of the text to deconstructing some sacrosanct tenets of capitalism that have become entrenched in government policy over the past 60 years."--Timothy R. Homan Bloomberg "A most interesting and ... a most significant book... Basu's book is the first serious study of the modern myth related to the 'Invisible Hand' I have seen anywhere."--Gavin Kennedy Adam Smith's Lost Legacy "Basu has rethought and modernized socialism in this book. He has done so without cluttering it up with Marxist jargon or abstract mathematics; the worst the reader will encounter in this book is game theory which though it is not all fun and games is pretty easy to follow. It is a book worth reading by the socialist types who run our country as well as those who need to understand socialism to dissent from it."--Business World "[A] very rewarding read... This is Basu's most ambitious and rewarding book and it works--there's no public policy debate in India it's not relevant to."--The Economic Times "This book should be read by anyone interested in economics for its in-depth thinking although its targeted readership is more basically professional economists."--Wladimir Andreff European Legacy "Beyond the Invisible Hand will be useful to political economists who want to see how game theory can shed light on the ways that groups and races of rational actors may assume surprising dynamics. It could also be useful to policymakers who must justify arguments about group policies in standard economic terms. [The] author's contributions to political economy deserves to be taken seriously."--Jonathan Schlefer Perspectives on Politics From the Back Cover "Deftly with the carefully chosen anecdote and the sparing but subtle thought experiment Kaushik Basu again and again dispels the myth that the invisible hand of free markets leads to the best of all possible worlds--indeed often far from it. With great wisdom Beyond the Invisible Hand describes the frequently shocking consequences of the free markets of modern economic theory; it also sets the agenda for where that theory needs to go next." --George A. Akerlof Nobel Laureate in Economics and coauthor of Animal Spirits and Identity Economics "In this remarkable tour de force Kaushik Basu scrutinizes the foundational assumptions of economics and asks new and important questions. In his quest for a better and more equitable society Basu leaves no room for complacency. This thought-provoking book will generate debate in the economics profession and beyond." --Justin Yifu Lin chief economist World Bank " Beyond the Invisible Hand poses a fundamental challenge to the way that economists think about many of the most important issues of economic theory and policy. Written for both economists and educated laymen the book lays out a new vision for economics one that will stimulate the reader to rethink current practice and give deeper consideration to issues often slighted in contemporary economic analysis. While the reader may not always agree with Basu's prescriptions the importance of his contribution to the debate over the future of economics cannot be ignored." --Steven G. Medema University of Colorado Denver "With standard economic perspectives under question the need for alternative perspectives is great. Eminently readable and timely this book is appropriate for general readers and professional economists." --Arjo Klamer Erasmus University See all Product Description
