“Between Ideals and Institutions”

New book from WEA eBooks

Between Ideals and Institutions, by Armando Ochangcowea-ebookcover-ochangco-225x300 - 2

Available to download in PDF, EPUB (iPad) and MOBI (Kindle) formats.

The work is very interesting and enlightening and could be used in various courses such as  public economics, political economy, development economics, and the theory of institutions.
Willi Semmler, New School for Social Research

This book assesses political economy by considering various ideals, including collective decisions and democracy, freedom, justice, and development.  Beginning with the idea that social evaluation using the familiar metric of GDP is extremely limited, this book draws inspiration and incorporates basic insights from the writings of Amartya K. Sen.  Within its reconstructive methodology, this book brings in ideas from various major thinkers, including the contemporary philosophers Rawls and Habermas, and the classical thinkers Aristotle, Adam Smith, J.S. Mill, and Marx.

This work will be of interest to students and scholars in social and political philosophy, economic philosophy, the philosophy of law, the philosophy of development, the normative theory of institutions, and political economy.
