Abstract

The paper reviews 'The Economics of Good and Evil' book by T. Sedlacek. We conclude that this is a really valuable book, which interestingly reconstructs the history of economic ideas. However, we also point out that the book has some shortcomings while discussing methodological issues in economics, e.g., the issue of unrealistic assumptions in economic models. Our conclusion is that the book is worth reading, however, the reader should have in mind that this is a popular rather than purely scientific book.
