free read Licence to be Bad

Economics theorists changed our world and how a handful of key ideas from free riding to Nudge seeped into our decision making and indeed almost all aspects of our lives Aldred reveals the extraordinary hold of economics on our morals and values Economics has corrupted us But if this hidden transformation is so recent it can be reversed Licence to be Bad shows us where to beginOver the past fifty years the way we value what is 'good' and 'right' has changed dramatically Behaviour that to our grandparents' generation might have seemed stupid harmful or simply wicked now s. A appropriate sub heading would be How Neoliberal Economics Corrupted Us The choice made is understandable given that broader titles attract eyes so not so much a criticism as an observation And given that most of contemporary economics is held together by the principles of neoliberal ideas anyway the 21st century reader won't be left wanting for muchAldred spends the vast majority exploring the source of such economics by scrutinizing 20th century Chicago School economics that gave us the likes of Hayek Friedman whose ideas were then adopted by Reagan Thatcher in the US UK respectively Thanks to globalization and the disproportionate influence of these two in international trading and well in the case of the US it's often literal military intervention and sponsored coups the religion of free market and its crusade against the Keynesian welfare state model spread far beyond their shores and we're left with what we have today CoolThe book is divided into 10 chapters 8 of which are dedicated to dissecting what would be fair to presume Aldred considers to be the most influential theories and ideas in shaping present day monetary relations and — here's the corruption he talks about — how people view their social relations He provides ample evidence to suggest that economic postulates have bled into our individual conceptions of right and wrong leading to a society which now has systems in place to sell citizenships to the highest bidder has created a market where countries may purchase licences to pollute and where anti discrimination laws are constantly being chipped away under the free market penalizes discrimination rhetoric You know ideas that seem ridiculous if thought about from any angle other than the one that presents profit as the highest social goodOn the other hand when he's not pointing out the absurdities of our economically derived beliefs Aldred is pointing to the pitfalls of the abstract theories within the discipline itself Famously economists have come up with some truly absurd ideas by using homo economicus in their models Homo Economicus being a rational narrowly self interested portrayal of an individual in society who is supposed to be a stand in for homo sapiens who surprise surprise are neither rational nor entirely self interested I feel compelled to place doubt upon the word rational as it is used here since what is considered rational behaviour by economists is prescriptive rather than descriptive It conjures up a figure that considers mathematical probabilities before making decisions something that worldly economists have proved does not match with the lived realities of homo sapiens In fact as Aldred readily points out when these mathematically minded rational economists are themselves part of experiments that test their theories they actively choose to not employ what they purport to be rational behaviour in their academic work This happens even when they're granted a second chance and allowed to change their minds about their irrational choices — they overwhelmingly stick with their original decisions Speaking of mathematics Aldred seems to suggest that apart from the ideological push from Chicago economists the new face of economics has a lot to do with the so called physics envy — economists' drive to angle their studies closer to the pure sciences rather than the social sciences Mathematical rigour takes precedence over ethics morality philosophy etc devolving to the point of a tendency to place numbers in monetary terms upon matters that have no precedents in the real world There have been serious suggestions from Noble prize winning economists for selling babies in the free market That should say a lot This undermining of the social sciences also shows in the citations of research in the economic discipline as economists are the least likely to cite research from other disciplines and are also uniuely the only group that when uestioned alongside historians sociologists political scientists psychologists and business school professors disagreed that inter disciplinary knowledge is better than knowledge from a single discipline Much of this can be chalked up to again the aforementioned physics envy since economists conceive their observational position to be the same as that of a physicist Some lordly scientist who observes the universe with a rational eye and draws models around it What they're missing is the acknowledgement that unlike the particles in physics when you observe an economy made up of human beings and create models that will be turned into legislation and corporate practice your sentient subjects aware of being observed will change their behaviour to adapt to the new environment they've been trapped inPut plainly being a social scientist comes with its caveats and until economists accept it and change their methods accordingly we'll continue to speed through with theories that do not do a satisfactory job at capturing the complexities of human societyThe book closes with some suggestions on how the field can transform itself one most importantly being the use of actual field work that focuses on solving 'the real problems of real people' rather than crunching abstract numbers for theoretical developments within the field What I find personally interesting is what changes such critiue Aldred is definitely not alone in this fight can bring to the field In an age where there's increased awareness anxiety appropriately about the incoming climate catastrophe and the inability — if not exacerbation — of market based solutions to tackle them would economists continue to be bull headed about the lens they view the world with Or could they in the face of possible extinction expand their view and think of something beyond the same old financial incentives After the End riding to Nudge seeped into our decision making and indeed almost all aspects of our lives Aldred Naja reveals the extraordinary hold

'It is going to change the way in which we understand many modern debates about economics politics and society' Ha Joon Chang author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism Over the past fifty years the way we value what is 'good' and 'right' has changed dramatically Behaviour that to our grandparents' generation might have seemed stupid harmful or simply wicked now seems rational natural woven into the very logic of things And asserts Jonathan Aldred in this revelatory new book it's economics that's to blame Licence to be Bad tells the story of how a group of. I really enjoyed this book The author takes a critical look at some of the major trends and schools of thought in contemporary economicsHe first provides an overview of the significant figures involved in each be they Nobel prize winners authors etc Then he discusses the thinking it's interpretation and its effect on modern economics and societyOften the interpretation is not as originally intended by the major proponents of the initial research His conclusion and general thread is that economics has gone a bit off trackI found it well written and accessible It was interesting to hear about names I'd heard of but knew little about
