This collection of brief essays contrasts and compares “takeconomics” and “economics.” Takeconomics is the study of taking/extracting resources from the environment. Economics, on the other hand, is the “study of the distribution of scarce resources.” The essays highlight how the Western world has practiced takeconomics to the detriment of the non-Western world—forcing the latter to economize and experience severe want. The expectation is that Non-White people of the world will use the realizations derived from “Takeconomics” to reorient their thinking about how to develop and build social and commercials systems in the future. The volume is especially instructive for Black America’s plans going forward.
