Synopsis

George Brockway has long demonstrated that questions of economists can be profitably be asked and challenged to prevailing assumptions humanely posed. With wit, erudition, and the steadfast opinion that economics is the study of human interactions and the values that define us, he wades into waters most of us contentedly leave to the so-called experts.

Impersonal forces do not make economic decisions: we do. And what we decide not only determines our society's material well-being but also reflects ethical choices. George P. Brockway's clear, down-to-earth explanations show us how economics works and what the important issues are.
