Part 1 Foundations: consumption choices; review - textbooks on consumer and choice theory; history of textbook models - the roots of utility maximization; critique - do we maximize utility (even subconsciously)? - should we? Part 2 Production and markets: review - textbooks on firms, production and markets; history of textbook models - the intellectual road to perfect competition; critique - is the textbook's theory of production good economics, good politics, both or neither? Part 3 Markets, the state and the good society: review - textbooks on markets and social well-being; history of textbook models - the concept of a legitimate state in economics - origins, the dead-end and two escape routes; critique - can a capitalist society be good? Part 4 Does economic theory matter?: the curse of economics.
