This book consists of ten essays which speak to doing economics better. This means doing a different kind of economics than that pursued by the mainstream–an economics in which the social is not a peripheral add–on, but infused at every level from its ontological–methodological foundations, its theoretical core, to its applied research and policy recommendations. It includes essays on Polanyi′s concept of social embedded economy, social ecological economics, holy debts and the creation of money, norms, methodology, and applied economics.
