James Robertson has been described as the ‘grandfather of green economics’; he might equally be called the father of Renegade Economics: over the last three decades nobody has been more eloquent or straightforward in their advocacy of a new economic order.
As you’re aware, at the Renegade Economist we feel there’s a great deal wrong with both the discipline of economics and the kind of economy we’ve ended up with. Much of this can be attributed to the continuing failures in the academic realm so when a book drops onto the doormat with the straightforward title “What went wrong with Economics” we take a particular interest. And on this occasion, our interest was more than justified.
