Globalisation for the Common Good
| Price: $ 19.95
¿Kamran Mofid has presented a visionary and humane critique of globalization that merits broad and urgent attention. As an economist, he writes with particular conviction of the need to leaven an interests- and profits-based science of economics with considerations of justice and common good.¿ ¿James Piscatori, professor of Islam and international relations, Oxford, and author of Muslim Politics
¿Globalisation for the Common Good is a helpful and readable contribution to the whole debate about globalization.¿ ¿Christine Allen, executive director, Catholic Institute for International Relations
¿Remarkable book . . . the most penetrating analysis I have read on this topic, as well as the proposal that is the most optimistic.¿ ¿Stanley Krippner, professor of psychology, Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, San Francisco, and coauthor, The Psychological Effects of War on Civilians: An International Perspective
Placing much of the blame for world poverty on neoclassical economics, this text argues against modern economic theory. Economists are derided for a lack of a moral vision of society and for their misguided attempts to make economics a science devoid of value judgments¿cluttered with jargon and math and deliberately inaccessible to the average person. Called for is a return to the ideas of classical economists such as Adam Smith and Henry George. Offered is a vision of harmonizing economic efficiency with environmental responsibility and an equitable distribution of wealth based on Catholic social teaching.
Kamran Mofid, Ph.D., has taught economics, business studies, international business, energy economics, and Japanese and Middle Eastern economics at various universities in the United Kingdom and Canada. He is the author of Development Planning in Iran and The Economic Consequences of the Gulf War.
