Description: This book argues that the famous objectivity of mainstream economics is a myth -- dangerous and misleading but also bland and boring. Challenging the assumptions, arguments, models and evidence of mainstream textbooks, it puts the controversy and excitement back into economics to reveal a fascinating and a vibrant field of study.The Economics Anti-Textbookcovers all of the major topics. Drawing on the work of leading economists, it shows the claims made without evidence and the alternative theories, the importance of power, social context, and legal frameworks.The Economics Anti-Textbookis the students' guide to decoding the textbooks and shows how real economics is much more interesting than you ever suspected.
