Although Shepheard-Walwyn publishes books across a range of topics, for many years, Ethical Economics has been one of the key areas of our publication list. This has been an important focus for us because it is apparent that a change is needed.
Governments still rely on economists steeped in orthodox thinking for advice. If things are to change, a clearer understanding of how the economy works is needed, not just by economists and policy-makers, but also by the wider general public – a voter who votes in ignorance forges the chains that bind him. Economists have erected round their subject an intimidating barrier of jargon and maths, but the blog posts on this site and the books in our Ethical Economics list are intended to give the layman, the voter, a grasp of the basic principles.
Shepheard-Walwyn is an independent book publisher in South West London. Our first book was published in 1972.
Our aim is to find books that have a lasting value, feeding heart and mind. We sell books via our own website as well as via leading booksellers.
