An Economic Epilogue

Show Summary Details

Preview

The concluding chapter of the volume ties together many of the economic themes from the conference, including the parallels between Minsky and Arendt. The chapter builds on the selective reading of Adam Smith and highlights that economics may have evolved into an amoral discipline but was founded with values inextricably linked to value. Toay ends with a call for economics reclaiming the human element that makes it a social science.
