Year Published: 2001
This book is a major new contribution to intellectual and political debate in Australia. It is a demolition of the critics of economic Rationalism and Globalisation. It targets the sociologists, political scientists, journalists, politicians and economists who have created a moral panic over these issues. It defends the recent track record of economists and supports their role in political decision making.

Unlike many of its targets, Exasperating Calculators does not deal in vague abstractions, jargon or sloganising. It is clearly written and accessible to any intelligent reader. It specifically identifies those people and arguments it believes are wrong on this issue. In doing so, it sets a formidable standard of intellectual debate that it challenges others to attain.
