Book: "Good Economics for Hard Times"

HUMANISTIC -------------------------------------------------- MECHANISTIC

Hodges' model provides interdisciplinary and even transdisciplinary bridges across often disparate fields of knowledge and specialties (epistemologies). In this instance consider SOCIO-economics, the consumerism of supply and demand. The influence of this in the economics of health care and the environment. The impact of relentless growth when values are knotted with value and commodified.

Even the book's cover points to the preoccupation of economics with mechanics (process!?). The view of economies as machines, which this book and the work of the authors and others now seeks to challenge and change.
