Economics and Utopia: Why the Learning Economy Is Not the End of History


With the collapse of the Soviet Union, many have proclaimed not just the death of communism, but also the obsolescence of all forms of utopian thinking. Geoffrey Hodgson argues that it is still possible to imagine new economic alternatives to the current system, and that utopian thinking serves as a necessary aspect of developing alternative solutions to present problems. He places the focus on the relationship between learning and knowledge and on the context of different economic models. This book goes beyond conventional wisdom to open new horizons of economic thought.
