What Economics Can Learn from the Humanities


#1

Picked up a book the other day called “Cents and Sensibility: What Economics Can Learn from the Humanities”
by Gary Saul Morson et al. (http://a.co/g5YqLUW). Reading it now along with Kate’s book. These are exciting times given the revolution going on in economics these days. I like the tool/instrument metaphor as it brings up the vision of a toolbox that can contain tools other than just economics, like ethics, philosophy, etc. as all important part of the toolbox for creatively creating solutions to real-world economic problems.
