A lot is wrong with current economic thinking. The bad effects are all around us: a worsening environment, growing inequality, and bankrupt governments. But we cannot achieve something better if we do not learn to identify and counter the myths that hold us back. Beyond Apologies makes the case for an economics not of waste, consumption, and inequality, but of wellbeing.
Ever wondered whether Gross Domestic Product (GDP) really tells us how well our countries are doing? Ever wondered if economic growth is a sensible and useful goal? Ever thought that perhaps the media is not giving us unbiased information about our economies? Beyond Apologies discusses thirteen myths about economics, including what GDP really tells us, problems with the goals of economic growth, and the role media plays in furthering inequality.
