Fellow Tim Rogan’s New Book is Released
St Catharine’s History Fellow Tim Rogan’s new book is released in the UK this week. The Moral Economists, published by Princeton University Press, revisits three of the twentieth-century’s most important critics of capitalism, reframing current debates about inequality by reminding us that capitalism’s shortcomings were once viewed as much through moral as through material lenses.
Speaking about the book, Dr Rogan said: ‘The Moral Economists looks to history to refocus the discussion of an important contemporary problem, continuing a tradition of rigorous and timely research in history at St. Catharine’s with which I’m proud to be associated.’
Commenting on the book, St Catharine’s Alumnus and Labour Life Peer Lord Glasman said, "At a time when the absence of a moral economy is the fundamental shortcoming in politics, Tim Rogan's exploration of the three most important moral economists of the Left is extremely important.”
