ANTHEM OTHER CANON ECONOMICS

 

Anthem Press and The Other Canon Foundation are pleased to present the Anthem Other Canon Economics series. The Other Canon – also described as ‘reality economics’ – studies the economy as a real object rather than as the behaviour of a model economy based on core axioms, assumptions and techniques. The series includes both classical and contemporary works in this tradition, spanning evolutionary, institutional and Post-Keynesian economics, the history of economic thought and economic policy, economic sociology and technology governance, and works on the theory of uneven development and in the tradition of the German historical school.

  3. The Entrepreneurial State
     
    Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths
    Mariana Mazzucato

    Named one of the best books of 2013 by the 'Financial Times', 'Huffington Post' and 'Forbes', this debate-shifting book debunks the myth of the State as a static bureaucratic organization only needed to 'fix' market failures, leaving dynamic entrepreneurship and innovation to the private sector. Case studies ranging from the innovations that make the iPhone so 'smart' to the current developments in clean technology reveal the reality, whereby the private sector only invests after the entrepreneurial State has made the bold, high-risk investments.

  12. Economics of the 1%
     
    How Mainstream Economics Serves the Rich, Obscures Reality and Distorts Policy
    John F. Weeks

    How much do economists really know? In most cases, they claim to have profound knowledge but in fact understand little and obscure almost everything. This book exposes the myths of mainstream economics and explains why current policies fail to serve the interests of the vast majority of people in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. Instead, they serve the few, increasing inequality and poverty.
