About this item

Few social sciences today can claim the outsized public influence of economics. Economists are listened to by politicians across the ideological spectrum, their pronouncements treated as fact by a credulous media.            With The Profit Doctrine, Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson trace that oracular power to one simple fact: the past thirty years have been very, very good for America’s business class, and economists have played a major role in praising, defending, and buttressing that success. Despite their claims of scientific rigor and objectivity, the authors show, these practitioners of the dismal science are partisan ideologues whose principal concern is supporting the neoliberal regime they champion.            Sure to be incendiary, The Profit Doctrine will force a major rethinking of the place—and power—we accord economics in contemporary life and politics.
