This important and highly original book explores the application of economics to the subject of hate via such diverse topics as war, terrorism, road rage, witchcraft mania, marriage and divorce and bullying and harassment. As yet there is no overall economic approach to hate: Samuel Cameron pioneers this work using standard neo-classical economics concepts of the utility-maximizing consumer and the entrepreneur. He looks at emotions as a form of personal capital and hate as a form of 'negative social capital', and investigates the idea of a modular matrix of hatred as the appropriate means of examining the subject. The likely form and scope of future effects of hate on government policy are also discussed.
