    George DeMartino

    Dr. George DeMartino undertakes research related to the ethical aspects of economic theory and policy. His book Global Economy, Global Justice (Routledge, 2000) examines the normative controversy surrounding the emergence of the global free-market (or neoliberal) economy and provides a set of global policy alternatives for the year 2025 that are better suited than is neoliberalism to promote global economic justice. At present Professor DeMartino is working on the book “I Do Solemnly Swear” which examines the need for and content of professional ethics for economists. His theoretical interests also include various heterodox approaches to economic theory, including socio-, institutionalist and Marxist theories.
