People First Economics looks at what the crash means and could mean for us all. It’s about economics – and about a lot more. It’s about radical changes that are social, moral, ecological and philosophical too – and that are already beginning to happen.
David Ransom and Vanessa Baird bring together exciting and radical activists and thinkers, such as Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Walden Bello and Susan George, to set the agenda for 'economic democratization'. People First Economics covers everything from the green revolution and feminist economics to what we can learn from history and a 10-step economic detox. In doing so it provides the opportunity to rethink what really matters in life.
