Realeconomik. The Hidden Cause of the Great Recession (And How to Avert the Next One)

New Haven; L.: Yale University Pre, 2011.
Переводчик: A. W. Bouis.

Авторы книги напрямую задают те неудобные вопросы, которых обычно принято избегать: если экономисты и другие ученые, политики и профессионалы бизнеса, как они заявляют, понимают причины экономических кризисов, то почему столь разрушительные кризисы продолжают происходить? Можем ли мы доверять представителям деловой и интеллектуальной элиты, которые защищают принципы «реальной политики» и провозглашают «общественное благо» своим основным приоритетом, в то же время последовательно игнорируя этические проблемы в пользу максимизации прибыли?

 

“Grigory Yavlinsky’s book is an important contribution to understanding the interplay between social norms and modern economy. The current global crisis makes his analysis especially relevant.”—George Soros

“Reading Grigory Yavlinsky's remarkable book, I was reminded of Adam Smith, also a moral philosopher concerned with the correlation between individual aspirations and the enlightened evolution of society. It is invaluable to have the perspective of an intellectual such as Yavlinsky writing in the shadow of swiftly moving events on the global stage. He explains how market mechanisms influence international developments ranging from instability in European markets to the recent ‘Great Recession’ in the United States.”—Vartan Gregorian, President, Carnegie Corporation of New York

“Yavlinsky provides a new and in-depth interpretation of the events leading to the current recession and broader interpretations of how to avoid future ones. Realeconomik has my enthusiastic endorsement.”—Michael D. Intriligator, University of California, Los Angeles

“With clarity and eloquence, Yavlinsky argues that the deepest cause of the global recession was the erosion of the world economy’s moral dimensions. As a professional economist who has long been a leader of the Russian opposition, he knows how to splice politics and economics. As a politician who has repeatedly declined high office on grounds of principle, he lends the book additional authority. Realeconomik is a work that will, I believe, help to spark a public debate on issues of profound importance for humankind.”—Peter Reddaway, George Washington University
