Seeing economics as a cultural phenomenon rather than as mathematical models, Mr. Sedlacek asks if we can find economics in myths, religion, theology, philosophy, psychology, literature, and film.
If so, can we think about economics in a new way and calculate economic value differently?
Named one of the "Young Guns" and one of the "five hot minds in economics" by the Yale Economic Review, Tomas Sedlacek lectures at Charles University and is a member of the National Economic Council in Prague, where the original version of this book was a national bestseller. This book was also adapted as a popular theater-piece.
Mr. Sedlacek worked as an advisor of Vaclav Havel, the first Czech president after the fall of communism, and is a regular columnist and popular radio and TV commentator.
