Narrative fixation in economics, Edward Fullbrook.

“This is a great book. Against the background of the dogmatism of much of modern economics, Edward Fullbrook has produced an innovative and wide-ranging argument for narrative pluralism. The timely book is beautifully written, accessible to all, provocative, extraordinarily insightful, and extremely compelling.” Tony Lawson, Cambridge University, UK.

As Smith reminds us, ‘It is no exaggeration to say that this is the most critical moment in human history.’” David Klein, Truthout | Book Review.
