Ekonomie dobra a zla

Ekonomie dobra a zla characters È 7 Tomas Sedlacek has shaken the study of economics as few ever have Named one of the Young Guns and one of the five hot minds in economics by the Yale Economic Review he serves on the National Economic Council in Prague where his provocative writing has achieved bestseller status How has he done it By arguing a simple almost heretical proposition economics is ultimately about good and evil In The Economics of Good and Evil Sedlacek radically rethinks his field challenging our assumptions about the world Economics is touted as a science a value free mathematical inuiry he writes but it's actually a cultural phen. Short review This is one of the best economic books I have read It is a wide ranging book about the purpose and history of economics The first half is about how economics have been understood by looking at ancient historical documents Epic of Gilgamesh Old Testament New Testament various Greek philosophers Then it moves to how early economics viewed economics The last section is about the limits of economics and a call for economics to move away from mathematics determinism and to a renewed interest in ethics It is not rejecting the mathematical focus of economics but rather calling for a new humility because humans are not rational robots and economists are not very good prophetsMy full review is at was provided a copy for review from the Vine program

review Ekonomie dobra a zla

Ekonomie dobra a zla characters È 7 Omenon a product of our civilization It began within philosophy Adam Smith himself not only wrote The Wealth of Nations but also The Theory of Moral Sentiments and economics as Sedlacek shows is woven out of history myth religion and ethics Even the most sophisticated mathematical model Sedlacek writes is de facto a story a parable our effort to rationally grasp the world around us Economics not only describes the world but establishes normative standards identifying ideal conditions Science he claims is a system of beliefs to which we are committed To grasp the beliefs underlying economics he breaks out of t. I heard Sedlacek had problems to submit his PhD thesis which he then published reworked in a book form I initially thought this is just another example how wretched current economics is but in fact I tend to agree now at best this belongs to the literature departmentThe book is roughly split into 2 parts The first part is a tour of western literary cannon well small part of it Gilgamesh Bible bit of jewish tradition scholastics ending with Adam Smith Sedlacek provides literary theoretic interpretations of these works through the lens of economics The problem of this part is that it so overstuffed with uotes from primary and secondary sources that it is hard to find original sentences in it In fact it is likely that this part doesn t offer any original contribution whatsoever Apart from that it is a decent if a bit boring overview of economical thinking in the roots of judeo christian cultureThe second part after a few foreshadows in the first part then launches into straight up critiue of economics particularly its mathematization and the homo economicus model While there is indeed a lot to criticize here I have to say only thing worse than most of contemporary economics are shallow critics of itSedlacek reveals very shallow understanding of many concepts utilitarian ethics game theory Goedel incompletness all get butchered often fights strawmen or in trying to be provocative and smart comes off rather as annoying and thick His pointing out the foundational problem in the definition of utility is pure emperor has no clothes smart assery one has to just roll his eyes while being called an apologist for the economics establishment As a book ultimately about epistemology it has too little Popper for example and too much Matrix uotesHis critiue never raises above triteness like If we are to call truly scientific only things translatable into mathematics things like emotions and the soul and love fall into something of a lower ontological category Not only is his critiue weakly informed the solutions he offers sound also trite impractical and full of armchair philosopher self righteousness Oh well nothing to see here move along Little knowledge is dangerous then no knowledge but the only damage this could do is fueling pseudo intellectual cocktail discussions for which it is probably too long and too boringI feel bad about being this negative also I really regret finishing this book a clear sunk cost problem I have

Ekonomie dobra a zla characters È 7 He field's confines with a tour de force exploration of economic thinking broadly defined over the millennia He ranges from the epic of Gilgamesh and the Old Testament to the emergence of Christianity from Descartes and Adam Smith to the consumerism in Fight Club Throughout he asks searching meta economic uestions What is the meaning and the point of economics Can we do ethically all that we can do technically Does it pay to be good Placing the wisdom of philosophers and poets over strict mathematical models of human behavior Sedlacek's groundbreaking work promises to change the way we calculate economic valu. Definitely an erudite book on many levels but sort of boring in other ways It would be perfect as a series of talks belonging to some humanities festival for a liberal arts college or an undergraduate course that is aimed at giving students a chance to do close reading of major western texts focused on a single theme economicsWhich is another way of saying that I think plenty of people will enjoy this book but it wasn t really what I was hoping for I ended up mostly skimming it I do think though that histories of economic thought in this vein are important especially in their ability to denaturalize the current economic discourse And Sedlacek s particular point that mathematics is a language that has allowed us insight into some aspects of economics but is not the only language in which economics has or can be conducted and in fact causes us to ignore many of those aspects of economic thought that were deemed important for thousands of years is interesting and worth engaging
