Robin Hahnel – an alternative vision of economic justice January 19, 2012Posted by larry in economics.
This post is to recommend Robin Hahnel for those looking for an alternative vision of what has gone wrong in the past hundred years and how we might move into the future. Two books I would mention in particular are:
The ABCs of Political Economy: A Modern Approach— this is extremely basic but also extremely clear.
Economic Justice and Democracy: From Competition to Cooperation — contains a postscript to one of the chapters by Chomsky on libertarian socialism.
I don’t know why I haven’t come across Hahnel before. He also wrote a book with Michael Albert that is now out of print but is available digitally — A Quiet Revolution in Welfare Economics — http://www.zcommunications.org/zparecon/quietrev.htm.
Well, that’s it for the moment. Happy reading.
