Markets, Class and Social Change PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Markets, Class and Social Change free pdf At the beginning of the 21st century, an idealized view of markets informs government policy. Real differences in how markets interact with social change are obscured and public action on poverty is constrained. This title uses a detailed study of the grain trade in Bangladesh to show how socially constrained patterns of market involvement may systematically benefit the rich while disadvantaging the poor. More generally, the book suggests that markets are implicated in the making of society, its divisions, identities and directions.
