Economics After the Crisis is an introductory economics textbook, covering key topics in micro and macro economics. However, this book differs from other introductory economics textbooks in the perspective it takes, and it incorporates issues that are presently underserved by existing textbooks on the market. This book offers an introduction to economics that takes into account criticisms of the orthodox approach, and which acknowledges the role that this largely Western approach has played in the current global financial and economic crisis.

In this book, the author critically examines a number of socialist proposals that have been put forward since the end of the Cold War. It is shown that although these proposals have many merits, their inability effectively to incorporate the benefits of information technology into their models has limited their ability to solve the problem of socialist construction. The final section of the book proposes an entirely new model of socialist development, based on a "needs profile" that makes it possible to convert the needs of large numbers of people into data that can be used as a guide for resource allocation. This analysis makes it possible to rethink and carefully specify the conditions necessary for the abolition of capital and consequently the requirements for socialist revolution and, ultimately, communist society.

"Could a cooperative market economy, in which firms are owned and controlled by their workers, be a viable and efficient alternative to capitalism?"
 
The core idea of ecological economics is that human economic activity is bound by absolute limits. Interactions between the economy, society and the environment are analysed, while always keeping in mind the goal of a transition towards sustainability.
 
La idea central de la economía ecológica es que la actividad económica humana está acotada por límites absolutos. Sin embargo, estos límites no son completamente fijos, ya que están codeterminados por: (1) «límites planetarios» (fijos) (Rockström et al. 2009) y (2) factores sociales (dinámicos), como valores, instituciones, etc. La economía se concibe como un subsistema integrado en los sistemas más amplios de la sociedad y la biosfera.
 
La mayoría de los economistas institucionales conciben la economía como un sistema de organización social (formal e informal) relacionado con la producción, distribución y consumo de bienes o, en términos institucionalistas tradicionales, para la asignación de los medios de la vida socioeconómica y su reproducción. En lugar de presuponer ciertas características universales enraizadas en la naturaleza humana, la idea crucial es que las características concretas de las sociedades y las formas de organización económica varían considerablemente a lo largo del espacio y el tiempo.
