Book Overview
There is evidence that economic fraud has, in recent years, become routine activity in the economies of both relatively income-rich and relatively income-poor countries. Indeed, many business sectors in today s global economy are rife with fraud. Neoliberalism and the Moral Economy of Fraud shows specifically how these policies, reforms, ideas, social relations and practices that are described as neo-liberal have encouraged and rendered (more) dominant particular values and morals, shaping a type of socio-cultural change across the world that is conducive to fraud. This book investigates these moral worlds of fraud in different settings across the world, and shows how contemporary fraud is not the outcome of a few bad apples . With authors from various disciplines ranging from sociology, anthropology and political science to social policy and economics, this book brings together detailed case studies from both the Global North and the Global South to explore how particular values, morals, and standards of behaviour are encouraging the proliferation of fraud in neoliberal societies. This book is suitable for those who are interested and study political economy, development economics and political sociology.
