The Possibility of Progress
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe historical separation of economic thought and moral philosophy is breached in this interdisciplinary examination of how all nations must work together to progress toward a more just, inclusive, and sustainable global community. Economic justice is presented as a key measure of social progress, such that the ethical context of economic matters enforces the implementation of a new social order that uses capitalist principles for inclusive goals. The full spectrum of collective and individual thought is discussed, including the obstacles to social change that are experienced on personal levels of perception and psychology.
PortraitMark Braund, an economic philosopher by experience, has spent many years wrestling with these issues personally and professionally. He has worked in the private, public and voluntary sectors, and spent three years as an advisor to the government of Mozambique.
