Robert Lane
May 2015

Lane: Are Humans Misfits in Market Democracies?This book analyzes how the market in industrial societies shapes and misshapes the nature of its communities and human personalities. It explores the question 'Does the market version of human nature fit the version handed down to us by evolution?' 

This is the second in a pair of books by Dr. Lane to appear in a series called â€œEvolving Values for a Capitalist World”, edited by GDAE Co-Director Neva Goodwin. In addition to serving as editor of the series, Dr. Goodwin worked closely with Dr. Lane on this latest volume.
