- Morals and Markets: The Dangerous Balance by Daniel Friedman
Auteur: Daniel Mcneill Daniel Friedman. Co-auteur: Dan Mcneil. Samenvatting The Great Recession has colored global life for years, yet few grasp its deep causes and many worry it can happen again.
In this compelling book, economist Daniel Friedman and author Daniel McNeill reveal the underpinnings of such disasters. They arise when morals sabotage markets, or vice versa.
When market incentives undermine morality
Morals and markets exist in a dangerous balance that has deeply influenced corporate life, terrorism, the War on Drugs, and global warming, among other issues related to our happiness. It is a core dynamic of our world. It touches the lives of people everywhere.
The ethical compass is a poor guide to the market landscape. As Friedman and McNeill demonstrate, our moral sense developed over eons in tribes on the African savanna, yet markets are quite recent.
This book traces the rise of markets from ancient moral straitjackets to the freewheeling semi-morality that led to the crash. It addresses issues such as the Greek riots, the agony of the eurozone, and the ethics of bailouts, as well as acid rain, the Russian Mafia, poker, and the rescue of the halibut fishery. China went through a moral whipsaw over the last century and this book describes how its astonishing rise as a world market paralleled that of Europe.
As Friedman and McNeill show, we must understand the dangerous balance of morals and markets—or we're in for debacles again and again. Toon meer Toon minder.
Recensie s 'Morals and Markets shows in example after example that absence of morals and absence of markets leads to poverty and suffering. Our modern society depends upon the balance between the two.

And when they break down, as they have in the recent financial crisis, then we have chaos. Friedman and McNeill, who are fascinating on every page, have uncovered one of the fundamental principles of our existence. This book should be mandatory reading for ideologues on both sides of the debates on the extent to which self-organized markets, freed of regulation, can be relied on to put food on our tables and keep at bay the beasts within us. This book greatly clarifies our situation by providing a world history of economic systems, and by analyzing many of the recent catastrophes of globalization.
The writing is exceptionally vivid, the conceptual framework penetrating. It's a real achievement.
