Economics in Crisis: Outline of an Alternative

An internationally-respected economist takes on the powerful myths that govern Canada’s decisions on public policy. According to the author, policy based on these erroneous concepts is pushing our economy further and further down the road towards collapse. But where do these myths come from? Louis Phillipe Rochon delves into history to find the answer. He looks at the varying views of the role of the state under Capitalism and explains the context in which economic policy decisions are made. At the heart of Economics in Crisis is a complete rethinking of the main economic principles of John Maynard Keynes. Introduction by Duncan Cameron
