Why do markets exist? How are they maintained? What are market systems and how are they formed? An Enquiry into the Ideology and Reality of Market and Market Systems addresses these fundamental questions and challenges the traditional view that markets and market systems are 'natural', asserting instead that they are ideologically coloured and of dubious scientific value. This book presents a novel and detailed analysis of the ways in which market and market systems are made, maintained, merged and abandoned.
