Meme Wars: Sandpaper Collectors Edition

$250.00


Get your hands on 1 of 20 sandpaper hardcover copies of the groundbreaking, 400-page Meme Wars: The Creative Destruction of Neoclassical Economics. This extremely limited edition is a radical work of art; when not housed in its protective sheath, it scuffs everything it touches. Wedge it between two textbooks you'd like to see wiped out, maybe on your professor's bookshelf or at your public library. Coffee tables beware! This book does not play well with others. 

A visually-driven tour de force, Meme Wars includes contributions from leading-edge thinkers like Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Paul Samuelson, George Akerlof, Lourdes Benería, Julie Matthaei, Manfred Max-Neef, David Orrell, Paul Gilding, Mathis Wackernagel and the father of ecological economics, Herman Daly.

Praise for Meme Wars

The essays in Meme Wars are engrossing, exciting even. This book compels us to rethink our approaches to economics by offering critique after critique of the way the subject is written about and taught, indeed of the very conceptual categories we use when we debate about how goods are produced and distributed, services provided and resources extracted.

By turns wonky and visionary, Meme Wars brings together a group of accomplished writers, most of them academics, who approach the world’s economic, environmental and social problems in ways one seldom finds in mainstream journalism or economics departments.

Literary Review of Canada

Thought-provoking and creative.

Julie Nelson, author of Beyond Economic Man: Feminist Theory and Economics

Adbusters magazine and its editor Kalle Lasn have been at the forefront of the global resistance to capitalism exemplified by the Occupy movement. Their new book, Meme Wars: the Creative Destruction of Neoclassical Economics, uses startling images to back up its hard-hitting points.
