Peter Dorman — Economics, the Realm of Money and the Significance of GDP Growth, with an Application to Child Labor

Summary:
Peter Dorman reflects broadly on what economics is about. Worth considering, although it is only tangentially relevant to MMT as a school of monetary economics. But it does bring up key questions that extend from philosophy to sociology, anthropology, history, and political science, as well as economics. Economies are embedded in societies as their material provisioning mechanism. In doing economics the way it is usually done, it is easy to loose a lot of this, especially in focusing on economic theory.EconospeakEconomics, the Realm of Money and the Significance of GDP Growth, with an Application to Child LaborPeter Dorman | Professor of Political Economy, The Evergreen State College
