Compassionate Economics

Jesse Norman We live in a world of deep public concern: at the fragmentation of British Society, at the prospect of economic recession, at the loss of social trust and social respect. But as we reach the limits of state control and top-down government, does the centre-right really have anything more to offer than areheat of the 1980s? Must we choose between Brown and Thatcher? Compassionate Economics answers these questions. It shows how we have become obsessed with neo-classical economics, and how this obsession undermines our understanding of people and society. It rejects the false promises of happiness theory. It shows how an ancient theory of human well-being can be used to guide public policy. And it explains how we can rebuild the foundations of our prosperity—and our society. Published with the Policy Exchange ISBN 9781906097264 £12.99 paperback
