A comprehensive assessment of emerging economic ideas draws on new theories in complexity, environmentalism, and feminism to explain how imbalances from Pythagoras-era theories are shifting and how forefront thinkers and artists are enabling remarkable new economic potentials.

Perseus Publishing
According to author David Orrell, economics is in the middle of a revolution. The current theory ? based on a tradition of reductionist, mechanical thought that dates back to the time of Pythagoras ? has resulted in social injustice, huge disparities between the rich and the poor, and the degradation of the world’s ecology and environment. An alternative economic theory is now being fashioned, inspired by new sciences such as complexity and network theory, science-related movements like environmentalism, and social movements like feminism. The first heroes of this revolution include astronauts, student protestors, environmentalists, rock musicians, feminists, maverick mathematicians, and dissident scientists. All have had a hand in forging what is ultimately a new science of money. Part economic theory, part science, part popular history, and part manifesto, The Other Side of the Coin promises to change the way readers think about money forever.
