Abstract

This article discusses the book How social forces impact the economy, edited by Steven Pressman, which focuses on social determinants of economic processes. The contributors examine micro and macroeconomic theories and demonstrate how augmenting the analysis with social aspects – both as influences and outcomes – is critical to mapping reality. They endorse the idea that understanding the context of public policies, particularly economic ones, is essential if evaluations are to be correct and policies are to be effective.
