The Cult of the Market : Economic Fundamentalism and its Discontents
by

Publisher: ANU Press
ISBN/ASIN: 1921313536
Number of pages: 330

Description:
The author disputes the practical value of the shallow, all-encompassing, dogmatic, economic fundamentalism espoused by policy elites in recent public policy debates, along with their gross simplifications and sacred rules. Economics cannot provide a convincing overarching theory of government action or of social action more generally.
