Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Econocracy by Joe Earle, Cahal Moran and Zach Ward-Perkins, read by Jonathan Keeble.
A century ago, the idea of 'the economy' didn't exist. Now economics is the supreme ideology of our time, with its own rules and language. The trouble is most of us can't speak it. This is damaging democracy.
Dangerous agendas are hidden inside mathematical wrappers; controversial policies are presented as 'proven' by the models of economic 'science'. Government is being turned over to a publicly unaccountable technocratic elite.
The Econocracy reveals that economics is too important to be left to the economists - and shows us how we can begin to participate more fully in the decisions which affect all our futures.

Compelling essay on education reform

I was expecting a book about economics, but this is really about university education and the need for reform in teaching. There is plenty that could be debated, but overall it is a well-argued and thoughtful case for a much more dynamic and pluralistic style of economics teaching that would have consequences far beyond academia.

Narrator is good.
