Behind the Veil of Economics: Essays in the Worldly Philosophy
""[These essays] are rich in argument, in clear and provocative presentation of complicated issues, and are often delightfully quotable. Behind the Veil of Economics makes instructive, disturbing, and lively reading."" Elizabeth Wolgast, New York Times Book ReviewWhat lies behind the veil of economics? Power and ideology, answers Robert Heilbronerthe power of our economic involvement in society to shape the ways we think about it; the visions and values that add unsuspected ideological color to our economic beliefs about it. Most important, Heilbroner shows why economics has become the reigning form of social inquiry and how we might penetrate its mystique.
