Where Economics Fails
Now available for preordering

Try to use the rules of "Old Maid" to make sense of chemical reactions, and the result will be lousy chemistry -- though it might make a good postmodern poem. Contemporary economics tries to use the rules governing human exchanges of goods and services to make sense of the very different processes that generate natural goods and services, and the result isn't even good poetry. Another irritable post from The Archdruid Report.
