I spend, therefore I am : the true cost of economics
I spend, therefore I am : the true cost of economics
Roscoe, Philip2014
Articles
A radical, inspiring, agenda-setting critique that shows how economics invades our most intimate decisions, and what the real alternatives might be. Is a promotion at work worth more than time with family? Does the price of cheap socks compensate for their being made by children? Might a new lover be better than the one you have? How do you choose when what you want is bad for someone else? Examining work, shopping, healthcare, house-buying, online dating, politics and daily life, Philip Roscoe explains why economics is so powerful, and shows precisely how its values - ownership, efficiency and self-interest - threaten to usurp all others.
