About-

Why has our society become so focused on money--and at what human cost? Carol Johnston explores the value assumptions of Western economic theory, revealing what economists contributed and what opportunities were missed as the theory kept narrowing--until only market decisions were considered and money became the only reality. She then offers a proposal to transform the focus of capitalism from wealth to community and national health.
