Summary
Current economics orthodoxies primarily serve the interests of the rich and powerful, according to Adler (economics, Columbia U.), who further argues that they are premised on a number of key fallacies. In this volume, he provides the general reader with a critique of two of the primary fallacies underlying dominant economic theory: the definition of economic efficiency and the theory of wage determination. He briefly explains the general outlines of the standard models and counters with an understanding of economic efficiency that includes the effects of the distribution of income and a theory of wage determination that rests on the idea of bargaining power as the key determinant.
