Capitalism with a Human Face

Samuel Brittan

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Capitalism With a Human Face is a wide-ranging collection of Samuel Brittan’s important recent essays. Specially edited to make a coherent whole, this volume covers topics ranging from utilitarianism and the ethics of self-interest, to the principles of macroeconomic policy and how to price people into work without throwing them into poverty. The book will be controversial. For the individualistic ethic, which it is so fashionable to attack, is not merely defended but celebrated. The collection will be of special interest both to reader’s of Samuel Brittan’s articles who would like a more extended treatment and those new to his work. A notable feature is a specially written introduction explaining how the author came to take up political economy and how he arrived at the positions elaborated in this book.
