A century ago, the idea of 'the economy' didn't exist. Now economics is the supreme ideology of our time, with its own rules and language. The trouble is, most of us can't speak it. This is damaging democracy. Dangerous agendas are hidden inside mathematical wrappers; controversial policies are presented as 'proven' by the models of economic 'science'. Government is being turned over to a publicly unaccountable technocratic elite. The Econocracy reveals that economics is too important to be left to the economists - and shows us how we can begin to participate more fully in the decisions which affect all our futures.

What is the relationship between the financial system and politics? In a democratic system, what kind of control should elected governments have over the financial markets? What policies should be implemented to regulate them? What is the role played by different elites - financial, technocratic, and political - in the operation and regulation of the financial system? And what role should citizens, investors, and savers play? These are some of the questions addressed in this challenging analysis of the particular features of the contemporary capitalist economy in Britain, the USA, and Western Europe. The authors argue that the causes of the financial crisis lay in the bricolage and innovation in financial markets, resulting in long chains and circuits of transactions and instruments that enabled bankers to earn fees, but which did not sufficiently take into account system risk, uncertainty, and unintended consequences. In the wake of the crisis, the authors argue that social scientists, governments, and citizens need to re-engage with the political dimensions of financial markets. This book offers a controversial and accessible exploration of the disorders of our financial capitalism and its justifications. With an innovative emphasis on the economically 'undisclosed' and the political 'mystifying', it combines technical understanding of finance, cultural analysis, and al political account of interests and institutions.

This collection of essays by prominent Turkish scholars provides a comprehensive historical, political, and economic analysis of Turkey from the inception of its republic after World War I right up to the present. The essays--most never before published in English--break away from the conventional analytic approach, which holds the modernization process of 19th-century Europe as a paradigm for all developing countries. Instead, the contributors focus on Turkey's transition to capitalism to reveal other, indigenous paths to development experienced by many non-Western nations. The anthology concludes with an assessment of the past decade and examines future prospects for the nation.

In any country, one of the prerequisites for successful economic policy-making is a minimal economic literacy among its citizenry. This selection of popular essays in economics is a contribution towards bringing the ideas of economics within the reach of the general reader. In characteristically lively and readable style, free of jargon and ambiguity, the author writes on subjects of Indian and international concern. The themes vary widely - from the sections on economists and opinions, and methodological issues, to essays on practical matters like budgets and fiscal policy, inflation, infrastructural bottlenecks, trade and international credit. Particularly thought provoking are the author's views on corruption, which can be a complex and interesting subject of study for social scientists.
