Annotation

These essays deal with various aspects of a new, rising field, socio-economics. The field is seeking to combine the variables studied by neoclassical economists with those typically studied by other social sciences. The combination is expected to provide a better understanding of economic behavior and the economy as well as society; make more reliable predictions; and be more in line with normative values we seek to uphold.
The volume reflects the most recent thinking of the author on the implications of corporate governance shifting from shareholders to stakeholders. It examines the key to evolving a socio-economics and it deals with the socio-economics of decision making. The volume closes with a comparative analysis between socio-economics and communitarian thinking.
