The Consequences of Economic Rhetoric
Edited by Arjo Klamer,
Donald N. McCloskey and
in Cambridge Books from Cambridge University Press
The field of economics proves to be a matter of metaphor and storytelling - its mathematics is metaphoric and its policy-making is narrative. Economists have begun to realize this and to rethink how they speak. This volume is the result of a conference held at Wellesley College, involving both theoretical and applied economists, that explored the consequences of the rhetoric and the conversation of the field of economics.
