A provocatively rethink of the questions of what, how and for whom economics is produced. Academic economists in the twentieth century have presumed to monopolise economic knowledge, seeing themselves as the only legitimate producers and consumers of this highly specialized commodity. This has encouraged a narrow view of economics as little more than a private dialogue among professionally licensed knowers. This book recasts this narrow view.

"This is a compelling set of essays, most of which revolve around the sometimes overt, sometimes tacit, assumption that knowledge in economics is generally a product of discourse, hierarchies, power dynamics, ideological hegemonies, and other such nefarious matter." -Falguni A. Sheth, "Journal of Economic Issues
