"Neoclassical economic theory reats on the assumption that self-interested behavior in the marketplace is rational: as all act to maximize their individual interests, the 'invisible hand' of the market will organize the production of goods and services in society's best interests. Questioning this assumption, Herman Daly and John Cobb seek to locate the 'economic individual' in concrete social,political, and ecological relationships.They suggest an economic model that gives moral priority to a national and regional community and includes both future generations and nonhuman communities." This book has 482 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. N° de ref. de la librería 039149
