Tomáš Sedláček: Economics of Good and Evil

Tomáš Sedláček: "Economics of Good and Evil", Oxford University Press, 2011

Is economics really value-free or is it also about moral values? Tomáš Sedláček, economist and provocative thinker from Prague, on the "Economics of Good and Evil", for which he garnered the Deutsche Wirtschaftsbuchpreis 2012 (German Business Book Award 2012).

Sedláček examines the roles of work and economics in ancient cultures, religions and myths which continue to influence us today. He analyses the irrational preconceptions which prevail in modern economic thinking. Sedláček's book is a fascinating peregrination through the world of economics – taking us from the epic of Gilgamesh, the Old Testament and Adam Smith to Wall Street and the economic crisis.
