    Book details

In this revised second edition, Deirdre McCloskey demonstrates how economic discourse employs metaphor, authority, symmetry and other rhetorical means of persuasion. "The Rhetoric of Economics" shows economists to be human persuaders and poets of the marketplace, even in their most technical and mathematical moods. It is further enhanced by three new chapters and two new bibliographies.

The importance of McCloskey s work cannot be overstated. "Quarterly Journal of Speech"" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review Text

  • By Koets on 31 August 2013

    A must read for everyone interested in Rhetoric and Society.McCloskey's book is almost 30 years old, but it did not looseany of its value. In times of financial scandals, it reads as amodern work. It makes you a very critical reader of the economic pagesof your newspaper. Also a must for every journalist.
