Exchange and Development - An Anatomy of Economic Transactions (Paperback): Peter A. Cornelisse, Erik Thorbecke Exchange and Development - An Anatomy of Economic Transactions (Paperback)
Peter A. Cornelisse, Erik Thorbecke
R631 Discovery Miles 6 310 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This innovative and important book develops a new framework for analysing exchange that takes place within and outside markets over the course of development. The authors argue that development and social and economic progress are greatly enhanced by a fluent and efficient exchange system. Conversely, the process of development encourages and facilitates trade. The authors introduce the concept of exchange configurations to capture the multiplicity of settings within which exchange occurs and the many different forms exchange and transactions can take. The book shows how exchange configurations can help to identify the factors that constrain the exchange process and lead to the formulation of effective reforms. It then uses a historical analysis of systems of exchange during different phases of development over the last two millennia to illustrate different exchange configurations. Exchange and Development will appeal to students at both the graduate and undergraduate level in the fields of economic development, international trade, microeconomics, institutional economics and economic history. Researchers in universities and policy makers in governments and international agencies will also draw much benefit from the entirely novel approach formulated in this book.

Roads to Social Capitalism - Theory, Evidence, and Policy (Hardcover): Peter Flaschel, Sigrid Luchtenberg Roads to Social Capitalism - Theory, Evidence, and Policy (Hardcover)
Peter Flaschel, Sigrid Luchtenberg
R2,524 Discovery Miles 25 240 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The current crises in the financialization of capitalism, and their repercussions on the financial viability of entire countries, severely question the achievements of mainstream economics and its disregard of Keynes's theory of effective demand and finance. In view of this, Peter Flaschel and Sigrid Luchtenberg consider roads to a type of capitalism that could eventually be considered as `social' in nature. The authors underpin their study with theory, empirical evidence, and policy from a positive as well as a normative perspective. As points of departure for their concept of social capitalism, the theoretical framework provides a synthesis of the work of Marx, Keynes, and Schumpeter on ruthless capitalism, regulated capitalism, and competitive socialism. This challenging book will prove a thought-provoking and much needed alternative for academics and students of economics, heterodox economics and the history of economic thought, as well as for individuals interested in the understanding and reshaping of capitalism.

The Elgar Companion to the Chicago School of Economics (Paperback): Ross B. Emmett The Elgar Companion to the Chicago School of Economics (Paperback)
Ross B. Emmett
R913 Discovery Miles 9 130 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Many know the Chicago School of Economics and its association with Milton Friedman, George Stigler, Ronald Coase and Gary Becker. But few know the School's history and the full scope of its scholarship. In this Companion, leading scholars examine its history and key figures, as well as provide surveys of the School's contributions to central aspects of economics, including: price theory, monetary theory, labor and economic history. The volume examines the School's traditions of applied welfare theory and law and economics while providing a glimpse into emerging research on Chicago's role in the development of neoliberalism. A companion in the true sense of the word, this volume surveys a wide body of Chicago economic studies and guides readers carefully through each. The Companion offers biographies of leading Chicago economists and evaluations of the School's connection to approaches to economics that draw from and complement the School, including the Virginia School and the work of Armen Alchian and Edward Lazear. Moreover, this book is a first in many respects as it analyzes the interconnections of the Chicago School's theory, methodology, and policy, and considers by what means and ideas the School's policy framework is driven. The breadth and depth of the insights presented here will appeal especially to students and scholars of economics and historians interested in economics, social science and applied public policy.

Managing Macroeconomic Policies for Sustainable Growth (Hardcover): John Asafu-Adjaye, Renuka Mahadevan Managing Macroeconomic Policies for Sustainable Growth (Hardcover)
John Asafu-Adjaye, Renuka Mahadevan
R1,871 Discovery Miles 18 710 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The authors expertly reveal a model-based analysis of economic development and environmental issues with policy prescriptions for enhancing sustainable development. Within the last four decades, there has been a rapid deterioration in the quality of our environmental and natural resources, raising grave concerns about the sustainability of unbridled economic growth. In light of these concerns, the authors analyse a range of economic and environmental issues, and propose policy recommendations that would enhance sustainable economic growth. The book covers a variety of issues related to economic development, trade, energy and climate change, and focuses on countries in the Asia-Pacific region including Australia, Thailand, Papua New Guinea and Fiji. Managing Macroeconomic Policies For Sustainable Growth uniquely discusses aspects of the CGE modelling approach that will prove informative for academic researchers and postgraduate students in the areas of economic development and environmental policy. This original book will also appeal to policy analysts and policymakers in public and private institutions.

Financial Instability and Economic Security After the Great Recession (Hardcover): Charles J. Whalen Financial Instability and Economic Security After the Great Recession (Hardcover)
Charles J. Whalen
R2,063 Discovery Miles 20 630 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This timely book rethinks economic theory and policy by addressing the problem of economic instability and the need to secure broadly shared prosperity. It stresses that advancing economics in the wake of the Great Recession requires an evolutionary standpoint, greater attention to uncertainty and expectations, and the integration of finance into macroeconomics. The result is a broader array of policy options - and challenges - than conventional economics presents. Building on the pioneering work of Thorstein Veblen, John R. Commons and John Maynard Keynes, the authors synthesize key insights from Institutional and Post Keynesian economics into Post-Keynesian Institutionalism. Then they use that framework to explore an array of economic problems confronting the United States and the world. Inspired by the work of Hyman Minsky, the authors place financial relations at the center of their analysis of how economies operate and change over time. Students and scholars of macroeconomics and public policy will find this book of interest, as will a wider audience of financial analysts, policymakers and citizens interested in understanding economic booms and downturns.

On the Brink of Deglobalization - An Alternative Perspective on the Causes of the World Trade Collapse (Paperback): Peter A G... On the Brink of Deglobalization - An Alternative Perspective on the Causes of the World Trade Collapse (Paperback)
Peter A G Bergeijk
R522 Discovery Miles 5 220 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

On the Brink of Deglobalization addresses the breakdown of international trade and capital flows in 2008/09 and challenges the mainstream narrative for the world trade collapse. Detailed chapters on international finance, fragmentation of production, protectionism and earlier episodes of collapsing trade reveal data that contradicts conventional explanations and demonstrates that the trade collapse was driven by the shock of (perceived) trade uncertainty. Peter van Bergeijk discusses why trade barriers and import substitution are seen as solutions during depressions while presenting empirical evidence demonstrating the risks of such policies. This book provides a broad, historical and statistical analysis relevant to understanding the recent world trade collapse. Being the first comprehensive analysis of the risks and drivers of deglobalization, this unique and challenging book will appeal to trade economists, trade policymakers and analysts as well as those involved in international business.

Institutions in Crisis - European Perspectives on the Recession (Hardcover): David Howden Institutions in Crisis - European Perspectives on the Recession (Hardcover)
David Howden
R2,183 Discovery Miles 21 830 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This critical and thought-provoking book explores the causes and consequences of Europe's failed political and economic institutions. Europe's recession has created new challenges as market turmoil has shaken the foundations of the twin pillars of the new drive for European integration - political and monetary unions. This book critically assesses the patchwork solutions continually offered to hold the troubled unions together. Failed political policies, from the prodigious `Common Agricultural Policy' to ever more common fiscal stimulus packages, are shown to have bred less than stellar results in the past, and to have devastating implications for future European growth. The contributors outline the manner through which European monetary union has subsidized and continues to exacerbate the burgeoning debt crisis. Most strikingly, the interplay between Europe's political and economic realms is exposed as the boondoggle it is, with increasingly bureaucratic institutions plaguing the continent and endangering future potential. Combining political and economic analysis, this comprehensive book will prove essential for researchers and students in international business and macroeconomics. Educated laymen wanting a keener perspective on Europe's recession will also find this book to be invaluable.

Taming the Tide of Capital Flows - A Policy Guide (Hardcover): Atish R Ghosh, Mahvash S. Qureshi, Jonathan David Ostry Taming the Tide of Capital Flows - A Policy Guide (Hardcover)
Atish R Ghosh, Mahvash S. Qureshi, Jonathan David Ostry
R813 R622 Discovery Miles 6 220 Save R191 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A comprehensive examination of policy measures intended to help emerging markets contend with large and volatile capital flows. While always episodic in nature, capital flows to emerging market economies have been especially volatile since the global financial crisis. After peaking at $680 billion in 2007, flows to emerging markets turned negative at the onset of crisis in 2008, then rebounded only to recede again during the U.S. sovereign debt downgrade in 2011. Since then, flows have continued to swing wildly, leaving emerging market policy makers wondering whether they can put in place policies during the inflow phase that will soften the blow when flows subsequently recede. This book offers the first comprehensive treatment of policy measures intended to help emerging markets contend with large and volatile capital flows. The authors, all IMF experts, explain that, in the spirit of liberalization and deregulation in the 1980s and 1990s, many emerging market governments eliminated capital inflow controls along with outflow controls. By 2012, however, capital inflow controls were again acknowledged as legitimate policy tools. Focusing on the macroeconomic and financial-stability risks associated with capital flows, the authors combine theoretical and empirical analysis to consider the interaction between monetary, exchange rate, macroprudential, and capital control policies to mitigate these risks. They examine the effectiveness of various policy tools, discuss the practical considerations and multilateral implications of their use, and provide concrete policy advice for dealing with capital inflows.

Macroeconomic Methodology - A Post-Keynesian Perspective (Paperback): Jesper Jespersen Macroeconomic Methodology - A Post-Keynesian Perspective (Paperback)
Jesper Jespersen
R632 Discovery Miles 6 320 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Jesper Jespersen presents a treatise on the importance of the choice of methodology within macroeconomics. Given that no scientifically based macroeconomic policy recommendation should be established without an evaluation of the methods employed, this book gives a clear exposition of how proper macroeconomic analysis should be undertaken. Furthermore, it is convincingly argued that one of the lasting contributions of John Maynard Keynes was his emphasis on methodology; that macroeconomic consequences of uncertainty could not be analysed within the established general equilibrium framework. It is due to post-Keynesian economics supported by critical realism that the understanding of Keynes's methodology has been resurrected, which has eventually resulted in renewed debate on realistic macroeconomic policies to restore full employment without inflation. Macroeconomic Methodology is an inquiry into the question of how to conduct a proper scientific analysis of uncertainty within macroeconomics. It will be of great interest to scholars of the philosophy of social sciences and methodology, as well as post-Keynesian and heterodox economists.

Inflation and Unemployment: the Evolution of the Phillips Curve (Hardcover): Richard G. Lipsey, William M Scarth Inflation and Unemployment: the Evolution of the Phillips Curve (Hardcover)
Richard G. Lipsey, William M Scarth
R17,182 Discovery Miles 171 820 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This authoritative three-volume collection provides a comprehensive anthology of many of the most important and influential articles written since the publication of Phillips' 1958 study - the most-cited macroeconomic paper published in the 20th century. Along with an original introduction by the editors, the papers evaluate the original contribution and place it in its historical context. The works also discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the New Classical critique and the expectations augmented Phillips Curve that resulted from it, and critique the part played by the `New Keynesian Phillips Curve' in the New neo-Classical Synthesis that has emerged in macroeconomics. This indispensable volume will be of immense value to students, scholars and practitioners interested in the field of economics, and the Phillips Curve in particular.

Why Poverty Persists - Poverty Dynamics in Asia and Africa (Hardcover): Bob Baulch Why Poverty Persists - Poverty Dynamics in Asia and Africa (Hardcover)
Bob Baulch
R2,304 Discovery Miles 23 040 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This edited book analyses what traps people in chronic poverty, and what allows them to escape from it, using long-term panel surveys from six Asian and African countries. The distinguishing feature of these studies, which were commissioned by the Chronic Poverty Research Centre, is they span longer periods or have more survey waves than most developing country panels. This allows a detailed account of the maintainers of chronic poverty and drivers of poverty dynamics. Many of the studies (from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nepal, Pakistan, South Africa and Vietnam) are written by leading development economists, and all pay careful attention to the difficult issues of attrition, measurement error and tracking. The book's comparative perspective highlights the common factors which cause people to fall into chronic poverty and allow them to break-free from it. A number of promising policies and interventions for reducing chronic poverty are identified. This up-to-date book will be an excellent resource for international development agencies, academics specialising in development economics and development studies, and researchers in international NGOs. Graduate students of development economics and development studies will also find much to interest them.

Money, Investment and Consumption - Keynes'S Macroeconomics Rethought (Paperback): Omar F. Hamouda Money, Investment and Consumption - Keynes'S Macroeconomics Rethought (Paperback)
Omar F. Hamouda
R528 Discovery Miles 5 280 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Contrary to the commonly perpetuated belief that Keynes's theory is appropriate only to economic depressions, the author of this provocative book maintains that Keynes provided a complete set of macroeconomic relations and the ingredients of a new theoretical model, much more reflective of and analytically appropriate to the 21st century than those on which current macroeconomics is based. With the perspective of Keynes as the backdrop, the author begins with a discussion of the characteristics of the financial crises of 2008 and the 1930s. He then goes on to show that Keynes provided a novel, general theory, constructed as the EC-SP model (different from that of the Classicals' Labour Theory of Value model and the neoClassicals' antithetical IS-LM model), a theory yet unrecognized as being behind both A Treatise on Money and The General Theory. He presents here the premises of Keynes's contributions which still await use by a generation of economists to reassess macroeconomics and orient it in a new direction. This unique and authoritative look at Keynes's body of work will be an essential read for scholars and students of economics. Anyone trying to understand the state of the `entrepreneurial economy', of which the 2008 financial crisis is but one manifestation prone to recurrence, will find the work an important resource.

Paul Davidson
R908 Discovery Miles 9 080 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this updated and revised edition of Post Keynesian Macroeconomic Theory, Paul Davidson explains how and why contemporary macroeconomic textbooks fail to incorporate Keynes's liquidity and financial analysis framework to explain the importance of money and financial markets in the real world of experience. This important text develops Keynes's analytical framework for both closed and open economies and provides policy guidance for the global economy of the twenty-first century. In particular, it deals with problems such as inflation, financial contagion, global unemployment, outsourcing, trade patterns, and developing an international financial system that encourages expansionary growth among all trading partners while avoiding sovereign debt problems. Using this textbook in macroeconomics courses will provide students with a pragmatic insight that will be both useful and productive.

A Future for Capitalism - Classical, Neoclassical and Keynesian Perspectives (Hardcover): Peter Flaschel, Alfred Greiner A Future for Capitalism - Classical, Neoclassical and Keynesian Perspectives (Hardcover)
Peter Flaschel, Alfred Greiner
R2,475 Discovery Miles 24 750 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book builds on the Marx-Keynes-Schumpeter approach to understanding the evolution of capitalism. It does so by focusing on current frameworks that study macro-dynamical systems in the tradition of the Classical, the Neoclassical and the Keynesian interpretation of the working of modern capitalist economies, and of the societies that are built upon them. The distinguished authors concentrate on different paradigms of economic conjecture in terms of their applicability to labor market problems and their implications for growing capitalist economies. They present material clearly related to current macroeconomic research which goes beyond the New Consensus macroeconomics, and which can also be related to the discussion between practitioners and politicians on the reform of both financial and labor markets. A Future for Capitalism will prove a challenging and thought provoking read for heterodox economists and broad-minded mainstream macroeconomists with a special interest in alternatives to general equilibrium macroeconomics.

Macroeconomic Theory and its Failings - Alternative Perspectives on the Global Financial Crisis (Paperback): Steven Kates Macroeconomic Theory and its Failings - Alternative Perspectives on the Global Financial Crisis (Paperback)
Steven Kates
R635 Discovery Miles 6 350 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This innovative book focuses on the current global financial crisis and the inadequacies of the economic theories being used to guide policy. In so doing, it tackles the economic theories that have been used firstly to understand its causes and thereafter to contain the damage it has brought. The contributors bring together different perspectives from across the entire spectrum of economic opinion to examine what is likely to be the single most important economic problem of our time. The unifying feature is that all of the authors disagree with the standard mainstream neo-classical models being applied in attempting to comprehend what has gone on and then, more importantly, to devise policies to bring this recession to an end. The problems that modern macroeconomics may have caused in being the basis for economic policy are addressed, and it is concluded that the deepening problems found in economies across the developed world are not due to governments having refused to take the advice of their economic advisors but are in many respects due to their actually having taken this advice. Suggesting alternative ways of understanding how economies work so that other types of policies might be used instead, this book will prove a fascinating read not just for scholars and policy-makers concerned with our macroeconomic and financial problems but for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of our contemporary economic debate.

Oscar Dejuan, Eladio Febrero, Maria Cristina Marcuzzo
R2,184 Discovery Miles 21 840 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The 2008-10 financial crisis and the global recession it created is a complex phenomenon that warrants detailed examination. The various essays in this book utilise several alternative paradigms to provide a plausible explanation and a credible cure. Great detail is given to this important analysis from different theoretical perspectives, presenting a clearer understanding of what went wrong and expounding misinterpretations of current theories and practices. Fourteen insightful chapters by eminent scholars investigate the background of the crisis and draw lessons for economic theory and policy. They largely illustrate that the roots of the recession lie in the financial sector which, over the past few decades, has expanded considerably in terms of both size and complexity. They show that financial innovation has decoupled the real and financial sectors - not always to the benefit of economic stability - and argue that financial markets should be regulated more astutely in order to reinforce transparency and accountability. The book concludes that economics as a science should give proper weight to financial variables and integrate them into its models. This fascinating and thought-provoking volume will prove a challenging read for academics, students and researchers in the fields of economics, money, finance and banking, and the history of economics. It will also prove invaluable for economic policymakers at all levels.

Macroeconomic Theory is the most up-to-date graduate-level macroeconomics textbook available today. This revised second edition emphasizes the general equilibrium character of macroeconomics to explain effects across the whole economy while taking into account recent research in the field. It is the perfect resource for students and researchers seeking coverage of the most current developments in macroeconomics. Michael Wickens lays out the core ideas of modern macroeconomics and its links with finance. He presents the simplest general equilibrium macroeconomic model for a closed economy, and then gradually develops a comprehensive model of the open economy. Every important topic is covered, including growth, business cycles, fiscal policy, taxation and debt finance, current account sustainability, and exchange-rate determination. There is also an up-to-date account of monetary policy through inflation targeting. Wickens addresses the interrelationships between macroeconomics and modern finance and shows how they affect stock, bond, and foreign-exchange markets. In this edition, he also examines issues raised by the most recent financial crisis, and two new chapters explore banks, financial intermediation, and unconventional monetary policy, as well as modern theories of unemployment. There is new material in most other chapters, including macrofinance models and inflation targeting when there are supply shocks. While the mathematics in the book is rigorous, the fundamental concepts presented make the text self-contained and easy to use. Accessible, comprehensive, and wide-ranging, Macroeconomic Theory is the standard book on the subject for students and economists. * The most up-to-date graduate macroeconomics textbook available today * General equilibrium macroeconomics and the latest advances covered fully and completely * Two new chapters investigate banking and monetary policy, and unemployment * Addresses questions raised by the recent financial crisis * Web-based exercises with answers * Extensive mathematical appendix for at-a-glance easy reference This book has been adopted as a textbook at the following universities: * American University * Bentley College * Brandeis University * Brigham Young University * California Lutheran University * California State University - Sacramento * Cardiff University * Carleton University * Colorado College * Fordham University * London Metropolitan University * New York University * Northeastern University * Ohio University - Main Campus * San Diego State University * St. Cloud State University * State University Of New York - Amherst Campus * State University Of New York - Buffalo North Campus * Temple University - Main * Texas Tech University * University of Alberta * University Of Notre Dame * University Of Ottawa * University Of Pittsburgh * University Of South Florida - Tampa * University Of Tennessee * University Of Texas At Dallas * University Of Washington * University of Western Ontario * Wesleyan University * Western Nevada Community College

The Economics of Financial Turbulence - Alternative Theories of Money and Finance (Hardcover): Bill Lucarelli The Economics of Financial Turbulence - Alternative Theories of Money and Finance (Hardcover)
Bill Lucarelli
R1,799 Discovery Miles 17 990 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This challenging book examines the origins and dynamics of financial-economic crises. Its wide theoretical scope incorporates the theories of Marx, Keynes and various other Post Keynesian scholars of endogenous money, and provides a grand synthesis of these theoretical lineages, as well as a powerful critique of prevailing neoclassical/monetarist theories of money. Bill Lucarelli provides detailed historical analyses of the causes of the current international financial crisis, and offers alternative heterodox theories with more coherent and rigorous theoretical frameworks than existing economic orthodoxies. He illustrates that the very assumptions of neoclassical theory - informed by the efficient markets hypothesis - tend to rule out the very possibility of endogenous financial crises. Consequently, he argues, the endogenous causes of these crises are either ignored or simply treated as random, extraneous historical events. In stark contrast to these neoclassical/monetarist views, this book seeks to explain the recurrence of these financial crises as a result of the inner workings of the capitalist system. The Economics of Financial Turbulence will prove an invaluable contribution to modern heterodox theories of endogenous money, and as such will be essential reading for academics and students with an interest in economics, heterodox economics and money, finance and banking. Economic and financial policymakers will also find the book to be a fascinating read.

Researchers in universities and policy makers in governments and international agencies will also draw much benefit from the entirely novel approach formulated in this book.
