|The Corruption of Economics, by Mason Gaffney.
Published in 1994. Ever wonder why "neoclassical" economics
is dull and fails to solve serious problems such as unemployment
and recession? Read the true story of
how economics was castrated. This book can be dynamite --

let me have it back!
||Economic Justice in American Society, by Robert
Kuenne. This 1993
book brims over with important philosophy and empirical research. The
Banneker Center disagrees with much of it, and we are about to launch a
web page discussing Kuenne's views in depth. But this book leads you
down a path few have dared to take, asking sincere questions about
justice rather than placating the powerful. The author
tells me his book did not make a big splash in the academic world, and
that makes us think it has a lot of value! Controversial!

Korten. In this 1995 book, a former "international development"

that neither our civilization nor our natural environment can withstand
this for long. Which future will we promote, one of terror and discord,
or one of economic justice?
