The purpose of this book is to call for a wholesale rethinking of
the way that markets treat both the labour and natural resources on
which we all depend. It reveals how economic analysis justifies
self-defeating policies that encourage wanton use of the
environment and callous abuse of the least advantaged labourers.
From Adam Smith to the present day, economic theory has
short-changed the workers most crucial to the functioning of human
life and offered skewed views of scarcity and extraction. Perelman
will show how this approach has produced a discipline in which its
followers' models and representations of the world around them are
so removed from reality that continuing to abide by them would
jeopardize both human capabilities and nature itself.
