Overview

The Cultural Context of Economics and Politics offers both breadth and depth in its exploration of the role that politics, economics, and culture have in shaping this nation's social institutions. Thomas Sowell contributes a broad survey of culture and policy followed by an examination of motivating values and priorities in education, crime policies, and family-related issues. Dr. Lichter writes a sobering historical review of television contrasting the values currently depicted by television with values portrayed a generation ago. George Weigel examines the place of corporate America and the philosophy of a free economy within the cultural debates. Don Lavoie addresses the difficulty of incorporating culture into economic theory. Peter Berger investigates the effect of culture on economic activity by examining the business success of non-communist Chinese people and the effect of Protestant Evangelicalism in Latin America. Brigitte Berger argues that the nuclear family is the only institution capable of spontaneously generating social processes in favor of economic progress and democratic politics. Co-published with the Center for Economic and Policy Education.
