Product Overview

Insurance may be an efficient way of organizing resources, but the deep social and human ties that constitute community are weakened by the shift from reciprocity to market relations. This book dissects the ways in which the foundational assumptions of economics justify a world in which individuals are isolated from one another and social connections are impoverished. Marglin presents an account of how this happened and an argument for righting the imbalance that this ideology has fostered.
