Economic Policy and Human Rights presents a powerful critique of neoliberal economic policies, assessed from the perspective of human rights norms. In doing so, it brings together two areas of thought and action that have hitherto been separate: progressive economics and human rights advocacy. Focusing on in-depth comparative case studies of the United States and Mexico and looking at issues such as public expenditure, taxation and international trade, the book shows that heterodox economic analysis benefits greatly from a deeper understanding of a human rights framework, challenging a narrow focus on efficiency and growth. Economic Policy and Human Rights is a vital book for anyone interested in human rights and in harnessing economics to create a better world.
