A critique of the assumptions, theories and methodologies of mainstream economics, exposing the flaws in economic theory. Examining many of the most cherished notions of conventional economics the author finds them based on reasoning which is eternally inconsistent. An explanation of the reasons why economists think as they do is offered and the flaws in their thinking, most of which were established by dissident academic economists decades ago. The irrationality of the discipline which labours the word "rational"is conveyed. / "This book provides a far more clear explanation of the ideas of standard economic theory (neo-classical economics) than do the standard texts (compare with Samuelson, Mankiw, or Barro, e.g.). The book explains utility maximization, indifference curves, and the assumptions underlying the standard economic model that is used by the IMF, the World Bank and all major western governments. Keen uses simple language that even the lay person can follow. The text should be standard reading for every student of elementary economics, but even an experienced economist like Alan Greenspan might benefit from the clarity of thought displayed therein."
