Overview

Smith, Burke, Marx, Durkheim, Polanyi and Hayek--all sought to situate market exchange and property-based acquisitiveness in the broader context of human interaction and social values. This book explores that framework of interdependence and ethics that embeds the capitalist market economy in an ongoing whole of which the calculative present-day is but a part.
