"In lucid and accessible prose, The Profit Doctrine shows how the post-war evolution of economic ideas has systematically favored the profitability of big business over the interests of everyday people. Chernomas and Hudson provide a step-by-step explanation of how highly abstract models and methods have provided intellectual cover for policies that have led both to increasing inequality and to profound economic crises."--Gary Dymski, Leeds University Business School

These accessible chapters written by economists and lawyers can serve to educate all interested persons about the institutions of world trade, and counter ill-conceived notions that we must renegotiate agreements.” —Robert Feenstra, University of California, Davis

The Guidance of an Enterprise Economy
Wed, 2017-02-15 07:50

“General equilibrium theory provides our deepest insights into how an economy is structured. But it takes as given the institutions and processes by which an equilibrium can be reached. Shubik and Smith’s book fills both these gaps, creatively and elegantly. They show that in any attempt to reinterpret general equilibrium as a process model institutions must emerge. Brilliant and important work!” —W. Brian Arthur, External Professor, Santa Fe Institute
