Summary At its core, an economy is about providing goods and services for human well-being. But many economists and critics preach that an economy is something far different: a cold and heartless system that operates outside of human control. In this impassioned and perceptive work, Julie A. Nelson asks a compelling question: If our economic world is something that we as humans create, aren't ethics and human relationships--dimensions of a full and rich life--intrinsically part of the picture? Is it possible to take this thing we call economics and give it a body and a soul? Economics for Humans argues.
