Economics of Good and Evil
The book tries look for economics in ancient myths, stories, philosophy, religion and belief-systems - and in the second part, to do the exact opposite: to look for myths, stories, philosophy, religion and belief-systems in today's economics. Only to find out, that these two areas are inseparably interwoven and that there is no easy way to be “value-free”, “positivistic” or without opinion, i.e. without the Concept of good and evil.
The general perception of economics today, it seems to be, is that laws and mathematics are a basis of economics, and that culture, philosophy and ethics are a mere :icing on the cake", but in fact, I argue, it is exactly the opposite: mathematical apparatus and laws are a mere tip of the iceberg. Under the water, our whole field of is based on a long history of culture, philosophy and ethics. I try to show this using old and modern myths and stories, ranging from the Epic of Gilgamesh, through Bible, Greek classics all the way to Matrix and Lord of the Rings. In other words this book skips the mathematical apparatus and tries to look beyond, in a way being meta-economics, trying to discover and describe the very soul of economics.
