亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 THE SKEPTICAL ECONOMIST:REVEALING THE ETHICS INSIDE ECONOMICS
  Book ID/图书代码:04090708B27559
 
页数: 272 定价: 0美元 上传日期: 2009-2-26

English Summary/英文概要: The Skeptical Economist rejects the story told by other popular economics books. It shows that economics is not an agreed body of knowledge or an objective science. In reality, economics is built on ethical foundations, distinctive and controversial views about how we ought to live, and what we value.

In this revealing and entertaining book, the author exposes these hidden assumptions, and in doing so opens the black box of modern economics to reveal that the conventional wisdom is not what it appears to be. Often the conventional wisdom has hoodwinked us; ordinary people sometimes understand the economy better than professional economists. In short, The Skeptical Economist rediscovers the ethics at the heart of economics.

The book responds to Western malaise about quality of life, and a growing curiosity about economics and its relevance to these concerns. It is for readers who know that economics is unavoidably central to any attempt to improve our quality of life, but do not know why. It conveys a sense of hope, without being utopian. It is a book of ideas and will challenge us all to examine the assumptions behind the economics of our current way of life.


Chinese Summary/中文概要: 俗話說無奸不成商,各學派的經濟學家也提出各種經濟學理論藉以制定社會的規範與制度,但隨著近來市場經濟的發展,作者不經開始懷疑起經濟學家的理論對於社會的核心價值是什麼?
Dr. Jonathan Aldred 是劍橋大學牛頓學院的土地經濟系講師和劍橋伊曼紐爾學院經濟系主任,他表示經濟這門學問不僅僅只是知識,實際上經濟不論在特殊或具爭論的議題中更是要合乎道德並以此為基礎,因為它是反應我們的生活與價值基準。
作者突破各學者對於經濟所提出種種假設的觀點,甚至認為有時一般大眾要比專家更懂得什麼是經濟。
本書也反應出西方社會對於目前經濟現狀的不安以及時下西方人所關心的議題,內容不是針對經濟學者,也並非對於專家理論而作批判。Dr. Jonathan Aldred教授的目的是傳達希望,但並非是不切實際的空想。他提供種種構想概念,在混亂的經濟學理和各類專家的建議之中,要使讀者找到並思考如何正確維護且改善生活。抱持懷疑但不失趣味。(CL)
