  1. The new book of Skidelsky - does it not concern philosophy more than economics?

    A question like, "When will people stop wanting more than what they have?" is not something that economics is equipped to answer, right? It can talk about people's wages, what affects their wages, what basket of goods they might buy with those wages.

    But something so intrinsic like what makes people keep wanting more is very different from all of that.
