Economics concerns us all. Never before, has human culture had to obey so fully the criteria of economic life. The victim of this process is and will continue to be humanity itself, both collectively and individually. It may, however, be possible to find an element that gives economics an unexpected vitality, such as will lead to practical consequences that human beings experience as truly social. This book is a search for a touch of magic in economics, an approach that fires the imagination and quickens the soul. In something of this kind lies the promise that economics could, after all, provide a foundation for cultural renewal.
