Reviews

'Marangos offers selected contributions that deal with economics and ethics from alternative perspectives.

The list of contributing authors includes scholars at various career stages, and with all exhibiting

passionate commitments toward grappling with ethical challenges of our times that the economics profession

should consider, but has tended to neglect. Marangos builds upon his strengths in Comparative

Economics, and the nine chapters that follow his introductory chapter seek to answer the question:

How might differing economic systems, and at various stages of development, attempt to create if not

good at least better and fairer societies? What unifies these authors in their efforts is a heterodox tradition

that leads each of them to think outside the economists' small box. Though the contributors are

active as professional economists concentrated and working in a variety of fields, topics dealt with are

largely focused on ethics and society. This focus renders Marangos' book useful to any potential reader

concerned with ethical questions of our day, and open to learning what our few, highly principled economists

are thinking.' John Hall, professor of Economics and International Studies, Portland State University and

research professor, Halle Institute for Economic Research

'This thought-provoking collection brings home the importance of envisioning what a better organization

of our economy and society might look like and how we might get there. Written from a range of

theoretical perspectives, the chapters are certain to stimulate discussion and debate.' Deborah M. Figart, professor of Education and Economics, The Richard Stockton College of NJ
