“Economics may be the science of trade-offs, yet economists are too ready to sweep under the rug the ethical trade-offs their practice entails. As DeMartino argues, these trade-offs arise both because economists claim more knowledge than they actually possess and because their preferred policies often cause irreprable harm for some people. DeMartino lays out a profoundly challenging agenda for economists – one for which there are no simple solutions yet which must be confronted nevertheless.” Dani Rodrik, coauthor of Combating Inequality: Rethinking Government’s Role
