Overview

Reinert (The Other Canon Foundation) collects views and insights from contemporary evolutionary economists on the issues of technological change, globalization, and uneven economic growth. According to the author, "The complementary perspectives of the book, focused around an evolutionary and Schumpeterian perspective, point to mechanisms that cause economic globalization to increase global economic inequality." Contributors in economic development, public administration, and economics use theory and case studies to "contrast the postulates and assumptions of a full-fledged alternative and evolutionary economic theory—The Other Canon—with today's standard theory."
