Meet the Author: Diana Hewlett
June 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The public is invited to the library’s latest Meet the Author event, featuring a talk with Diana Hewlett, who will be discussing her book New Age Economics.
About the Book:
“New Age Economics compares the economic discipline with religion as individual behavior molders. The book starts by examining some very basic principles of economics. Next, the use of language to create impressions using meekness and competitiveness is demonstrated. A broad examination and comparison of Socialism, Communism, Capitalism, and Fascism in terms of economic activity and control follows. The book explains the presences of emotional, mental, and spiritual rewards/resources, when combined with the production and distribution of physical resources, makes for complicated economic calculations. Since many emotional, mental, and spiritual rewards are invisible, these rewards are actually impossible to quantify creating the current problems worldwide which appear beyond traditional economic economic control.”–Provided by publisher.
This event is free and all are welcome. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
