Such dismal dilemmas economists pose for us these days. We’re told that to attract business we must lower taxes, shut the libraries and starve the schools; to prevent inflation we must have millions of people unemployed; to make jobs we must chew up land and pollute the world; to motivate workers we must have unequal wealth; to raise productivity we must fire people. Economist Mason Gaffney has worked, throughout his long and distinguished career, to debunk the dismal tradeoffs of "conventional wisdom." In these 21 wide-ranging essays, Prof. Gaffney shows how we can find “win-win-win” solutions to many of society’s seemingly “unsolvable” problems.
