An Economic Theory of Greed, Love, Groups, and Networks In An Economic Theory of Greed, Love, Groups, and Networks, Professor Paul Frijters presents a unified view of human societies, grounded in economic thought. Adding conceptual ingredients from outside economics -- most notably love, power and the dynamics of groups and networks -- to the traditional economic view, Frijters constructs for the reader an enhanced view of human societies that nevertheless retains the pursuit of self-interest as its core. The book will be of use to any economist wishing to condense the immense complexity of the socioeconomic system into simplified representations, for the purpose of designing policy. It also offers teachers and students a simple view of our socioeconomic system that can be digested in a short space of time. The Economic Society of Australia (QLD) invites you to hear Paul Frijters and co-author Gigi Foster deliver an overview of the book and explain its broader purpose.
