every orthodox economics education begins with a lie


Apenas dois excertos da recensão que William Davies faz do livro "Them and Us", de Will Hutton:

«Every orthodox economics education begins with a lie. This is that, in the vernacular of neo-classical economics, we can and must split questions of ‘equity’ from those of ‘efficiency’. To put this another way, economics begins by ignoring moral philosophy, arguing that it is still possible to analyse, model and criticise social and economic relations without resorting to the language of values or justice.»
«Reward must be proportionate to effort, skill and contribution to the collective, and separated from sheer luck.»
