Considering quite a few matters, this e-book appears on the clash among economics and human rights at a theoretical point; how economics is against the ideal to paintings; how economics, being a technological know-how all in favour of the supply of products and companies for advertisement reasons, conflicts with the assumption of supplying those self same items and companies as rights, utilizing as examples the perfect to water and the precise to social safety; the competition of economics to cultural freedom, supported through the argument that economics has a tendency to homogenize cultures at the foundation of the concept there's just one most sensible tradition to fulfil monetary ambitions; how economics contributes to the erosion of the democratic suggestion; and, ultimately, the competition of financial globalisation to democracy.
The major end of the ebook is that improving human rights within the worldwide economic system period calls for an intensive transformation of economics and
of the economic system. this modification can be characterized via reinstating the primacy of the individual over the economic system, via changing economics on the carrier of human dignity. one of many facets of this alteration issues the necessity for a democratic keep watch over of the industry. This democratic keep watch over implies that humans suffering from fiscal judgements might be in a position to perform the making of these judgements. In different phrases, the e-book proposes the popularity of economics as basically a political technological know-how, and, thereby, the rehabilitation of politics inside of economics' discourse.
