The Econocracy: The Perils of Leaving Economics to the Experts

by Joe Earle, Cahal Moran and Zach Ward-Perkins
£9.99   paperback  Manchester University Press (2016)

The Econocracy: The Perils of Leaving Economics to the Experts by Joe Earle, Cahal Moran and Zach Ward-Perkins One hundred years ago the idea of 'the economy' didn't exist. Now, improving the economy has come to be seen as perhaps the most important task facing modern societies. Politics and policymaking are conducted in the language of economics and economic logic shapes how political issues are thought about and addressed. The result is that the majority of citizens, who cannot speak this language, are locked out of politics while political decisions are increasingly devolved to experts.
 
The Econocracy explains how economics came to be seen this way - and the damaging consequences. It opens up the discipline and demonstrates its inner workings to the wider public so that the task of reclaiming democracy can begin.
