About this book

Exposes two fundamental theoretical errors responsible for the bankruptcy of modern economic policy. Toxic economic theory originates from its misconceived division into separate micro- and macro- compartments. It is responsible for fraudulent accounting standards, a dysfunctional system of taxation, and totally bankrupt macroeconomic policy.
