Economics is Onesided and Reactionary - by Conrad Schuhler and Rudolf Hickel
The homo oeconomicus cannot be our hope and is not desirable or future friendly. The economic benefits for the capitalist entrepreneur are in contradiction to nature and to the person. We do not need a homo oeconomicus but an economic actor for whom the human factor and not economic advantage is most important in his/her economic actions... We face completely oversized financial markets today that have uncoupled from the real economy creating value. In 2010 the volume of financial transacti...

What is less understood is that for much longer, failures by banks and the governments that regulate them have caused untold damage to the economies of some of the poorest countries in the world.” From timber revenues to oil and gas development contracts, vast sums of cash change hands. Banks hide the heists by cabinet members of stolen revenues, and the regimes in power invest...

For a Different Economics - by Jacob Hafele and Benedict Weihmayr
Economists are criticized everywhere for their onesidedness, their focus on markets and their inability to deal with the burning problems... From the neoclassical assumptions that "more is better" or markets lead to efficient distribution, a perspective on the world results that sets efficiency above justice and maximization of profits above protection of the environment...The focus on the market and efficiency dominates the discipline.
