Overview

"Normative Political Economy explores the criteria we use for judging economic institutions and economic policy. It argues that prevailing criteria lack sufficient depth in their understanding of subjective experience. By uncovering the meaning of this experience through reference to psychoanalytic theory, the book changes the way we understand the processes and structures of 'political economy'."--BOOK JACKET.
