Overview

Building on the evolutionary perspective of brain development pushed by Paul D. MacLean, Cory (business economics, San Jose State U.) describes a model of human behavior that aims to achieve consilience or unification of the natural and social sciences. He applies his model of human behavior to a discussion of free markets, arguing that empathy should be understood as just as important in the development of markets as greed. The model is then used to critique and improve theories of new institutional economics. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
