Abstract:     
Economics has been viewed traditionally as a discipline removed from other, "softer", fields of social analysis. Professor R. Malloy has fought to remove these barriers and encourage interdisciplinary dialogue. In a field previously dominated by normative values of majority power holders, a multidisciplinary approach allows for a more extensive examination of social trends and the question of innate human "rights". By relaxing the assumptions of traditional neoclassical economic analysis, one can gain a theoretical perspective that includes insights from multiple disciplines. This article reinforces Malloy's conceptualization of new social analysis, hoping to further this new interdisciplinary cooperation.
