    My suggestion is that all social scientists read Steve Keen’s book “Debunking Economics” (the 2nd Edition is best). According to Keen (and written well before the crisis),the problem was not “over-mighty market economics” (although economics is indeed over-mighty) but woefully WRONG economics. His critique is trenchant and extremely well-informed – unlike much of the, can we say “over-ideological”?, responses from non-economist social scientists.

    Keen’s book is a must-read. I would also strongly recommend ‘The Human Economy’ by Hart et al. [eds] and ‘The Invisible Handcuffs: how market tyranny stifles the economy by stunting workers’ by Michael Perelman.

And it is a natural resource owned by developing countries ..

    In developing countries, including my country Indonesia, people’s behavior is still thick with the feel of “mutual assistance”, with mutual care about is still strong.
    Could slightly inhibit the adverse effects of capitalism that is unstoppable because of the demands of a variety of natural resources.
    Modeling ideal society exists only in novels or history dinovelkan, right?
