9781846275647: Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner? : A Story About Women and Economics
Revue de presse :

'Polemical and entertaining… and excellently titled' -- Heather Stewart, Economics editor of Observer

'Who cooked Adam Smith's dinner? His mother, of course. From this compelling insight, Katrine Marçal builds her critique of economic man, exposing him for the sham he really is. Erudite, furious, and eminently readable, this book will send a great many economists running for cover' -- Philip Roscoe, author of I Spend, Therefore I am

'Marçal's book is instructive, angry and funny: economic man has met his match' -- Nina Power, author of One Dimensional Woman

'Marçal is right that economics simplifies people. The book isn't short of insights and much of Marçal's analysis is thought provoking' --Prospect

'Witty and perceptive, Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner? is a welcome addition to a canon dominated by men. With feminist incisiveness she looks at the mess we're in' --New Internationalist

'In commanding rhetoric punctuated with spiky wit, Katrine Marçal does not seek to yoke every last aspect of our lives to the tyranny of Homo economicus. Rather, she asks why we have fetishised the myth, and suggests that man denuded of his humanity is not such a figure to aspire to after all' --Caroline Criado-Perez, New Statesman

Présentation de l'éditeur :

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we can expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest When Adam Smith wrote that all our actions stem from self-interest and the world turns because of financial gain he brought to life 'economic man'. Selfish and cynical, economic man has dominated our thinking ever since and his influence has spread from the market to how we shop, work and date. But every night Adam Smith's mother served him his dinner, not out of self-interest but out of love. Today, our economics focuses on self-interest and excludes all other motivations. It disregards the unpaid work of mothering, caring, cleaning and cooking. It insists that if women are paid less, then that's because their labour is worth less - how could it be otherwise? Economics has told us a story about how the world works and we have swallowed it, hook, line and sinker. Now it's time to change the story. In this courageous look at the mess we're in, Katrine Marcal tackles the biggest myth of our time and invites us to kick out economic man once and for all.
