How Language is Used to Do Business. Essays on the Rhetoric of Economics
2008 0-7734-5143-9
This edited volume of papers on rhetoric and economics grew out of an interdisciplinary conference held at Millikin University in the summer of 2005. Drawing on economist Deirdre McCloskey’s pioneering work, The Rhetoric of Economics, the essays seek to integrate the analytic study of language use in economic theory with an appreciation for its effect on the material culture that supports social life.
