The Elgar Companion to the Chicago School of Economics (Hardcover): Ross B. Emmett The Elgar Companion to the Chicago School of Economics (Hardcover)
Ross B. Emmett
R3,403 Discovery Miles 34 030 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.

Macroeconomic Institutions and Development (Hardcover): Bilin Neyapti Macroeconomic Institutions and Development (Hardcover)
Bilin Neyapti
R1,866 Discovery Miles 18 660 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The fading explanatory power of earlier development theories in providing a satisfactory account of diverse developmental experiences has necessitated a new framework to understand economic development. Bilin Neyapti presents this new framework, known as New Development Economics (NDE), which combines new institutional economics with collective action theory to explain the dynamic interaction between institutions and economic development. Besides reviewing earlier development theories and the fundamental building blocks of NDE, the author uses the NDE framework to present theoretical underpinnings and panel evidence on the effectiveness of fiscal and monetary institutions. The book incorporates the essential elements of institutional theory and highlights the issues pertaining to the measurement of institutional characteristics and the empirical analyses involving such measurement. It provides the theoretical framework of and empirical evidence on fiscal institutions, covering budgetary rules and procedures as well as fiscal decentralization, and reviews the theoretical framework for monetary institutions such as central bank independence, currency boards, monetary unions and inflation targeting in addition to providing empirical evidence on their effectiveness. The role of bank regulation and supervision is also investigated. This path-breaking and original book will prove a fascinating read for a wide-ranging audience including academics, think tanks, international development agencies and policymakers within the fields of development, economics, heterodox economics and money, banking and finance.

European Economics at a Crossroads (Hardcover): J.Barkley Rosser, Richard P.F. Holt, David Colander European Economics at a Crossroads (Hardcover)
J.Barkley Rosser, Richard P.F. Holt, David Colander
R2,137 Discovery Miles 21 370 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

As Europe moves toward an integrated academic system, European economics is changing. This book discusses that change, along with the changes that are happening simultaneously within the economics profession. The authors argue that modern economics can no longer usefully be described as `neoclassical', but is much better described as complexity economics. The complexity approach embraces rather than assumes away the complexities of social interaction. The authors also argue that despite all the problems with previous European academic structures, those structures allowed for more diversity than exists in US universities, and thus were often ahead of US universities in exploring new cutting-edge approaches. The authors further argue that by trying to judge themselves by US-centric measures and to copy US universities, the European economics profession is undermining some of the strengths of the older system - strengths on which it should be building. While the authors agree that European economics needs to go through major changes in the coming decade, they argue that by building on Europe's strengths, rather than trying to follow a US example, Europe will be more likely to become the global leader in economics in the coming decades rather than a second-rate copy of the US. The book begins with two chapters spelling out the authors' view of the changes in economics and European economics. This is followed by 11 interviews with a diverse set of innovative European economists from a range of European countries. In the interviews these European economists reflect on the ongoing changes in economics generally and in European economics specifically. These interviews demonstrate how the economics profession is moving away from traditional neoclassical economics into a dynamic set of new methods and approaches (incorporating work in behavioral economics, experimental economics, evolutionary game theory and ecological approaches, complexity and nonlinear dynamics, methodological analysis, and agent-based modelling) that the authors classify as complexity economics. This fascinating and easy-to-read book will prove a stimulating and thought-provoking read for those with an interest in economics, European education, and the nature of academic disciplines generally.

Twenty-First Century Macroeconomics - Responding to the Climate Challenge (Paperback): Jonathan M Harris, Neva R. Goodwin Twenty-First Century Macroeconomics - Responding to the Climate Challenge (Paperback)
Jonathan M Harris, Neva R. Goodwin
R949 Discovery Miles 9 490 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The authors and editors of this book challenge traditional assumptions about economic growth, and develop the elements of a reoriented macroeconomics that takes account both of environmental impacts and social equity. Policies including carbon trading, revenue recycling, and reorientation of private and social investment are analyzed, providing insight into new paths for economic development with flat or negative carbon emissions. These issues will be crucial to macroeconomic and development policies in the twenty-first century. What are the likely economic effects of climate change? What are the costs of substantial action to avert climate change? What economic policies can be effective in responding to climate change? The debate has broad implications for public policy. However, it also raises fundamental questions about economic analysis itself, and moves issues of environmental policy from the microeconomic to the macroeconomic level. Taking global climate change seriously requires a re-examination of macroeconomic goals. Economic growth has been closely linked to expanded use of energy, primarily fossil fuels. The assumption of continuing economic growth, in turn, leads economists to discount future costs, including the generational impacts of climate change. Challenging conventional concepts of growth implies different development paths both for rich and poor nations. This volume brings together contributions from scholars around the world to address these issues. Scholars, researchers and students of economics and development studies along with policymakers and non-governmental organizations will find this insightful book of great interest.

Money, Investment and Consumption - Keynes'S Macroeconomics Rethought (Hardcover): Omar F. Hamouda Money, Investment and Consumption - Keynes'S Macroeconomics Rethought (Hardcover)
Omar F. Hamouda
R2,065 Discovery Miles 20 650 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.

Globalisation, Development and Transition - Conversations with Eminent Economists (Paperback): Brian Snowdon Globalisation, Development and Transition - Conversations with Eminent Economists (Paperback)

Money and Households in a Capitalist Economy - A Gendered Post Keynesian-Institutional Analysis (Hardcover): Zdravka Todorova Money and Households in a Capitalist Economy - A Gendered Post Keynesian-Institutional Analysis (Hardcover)
Zdravka Todorova
R1,959 Discovery Miles 19 590 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Post Keynesian analyses of monetary production have not given much attention to households as institutions, while a good deal of the literature in feminist economics discusses households in a strictly microeconomic context, with little consideration of monetary phenomena. This book, a unique study of the capitalist economy, utilizes a distinctive combination of Post Keynesian, institutional, and gender analysis to examine household economics in capitalist society in order to flesh out the gaps in each. The author poses questions that cut across rigidly determined areas of inquiry, such as gender and money, and micro- and macroeconomic analysis. She grounds the discussion of households and their social and financial relations within a monetary theory of production, and provides many methodological, theoretical, and policy formulation insights to establish a framework that illuminates current problems of household debt.

Long-Run Growth, Social Institutions and Living Standards (Hardcover): Neri Salvadori, Arrigo Opocher Long-Run Growth, Social Institutions and Living Standards (Hardcover)
Neri Salvadori, Arrigo Opocher
R2,675 Discovery Miles 26 750 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This engaging book contains a set of original contributions to the much-debated issues of long-run economic growth in relation to institutional and social progress. It explores the mutual relationships between living standards, social habits, education and health systems, labour market regulation and participatory rules on one hand, and the growth of the economy on the other. These mutual relationships underpin the differences between long-run growth rates in different countries, and in their variations through time. The book also analyses fundamental historical, empirical and theoretical aspects of the many self-reinforcing mechanisms of growth, such as poverty traps or industrial take-offs. It offers a lively representation of the reasons why no lasting economic growth is possible without wider institutional, intellectual and ethical progress. Uncommitted to a specific overall economic theory, the contributors freely discuss their understanding of specific aspects of this complex subject. This stimulating integrated analysis of the main social drivers of economic growth will strongly appeal both to academic and practising economists, and to postgraduate students interested in growth theory and social studies.

Monetary Policy Frameworks for Emerging Markets (Hardcover): Gill Hammond, Ravi Kanbur, Eswar S. Prasad Monetary Policy Frameworks for Emerging Markets (Hardcover)
Gill Hammond, Ravi Kanbur, Eswar S. Prasad
R2,861 Discovery Miles 28 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Financial globalisation has made the formulation of monetary policy in emerging market economies increasingly complicated. This timely set of studies looks at the turmoil in global financial markets, which, coupled with volatile inflation, poses serious challenges for central banks in these countries. The book features a number of specially commissioned new papers from both front-line policymakers and researchers in developing and emerging market economies, which tackle the difficult issues currently being debated with increasing urgency by monetary policy theorists and policymakers around the world. They address questions such as: `What monetary policy framework is most suitable for emerging market countries to confront the new challenges while they continue to open up to trade and financial flows?', `What are the linkages between monetary stability and financial stability?' and `Is inflation targeting or a fixed exchange rate regime preferable for developing and emerging markets?' Providing unique insights on the interaction between the theory and practice of monetary policy in emerging markets, this book will be of great interest to academics and students of economics, economic policy and development economics. Policymakers will also find this to be a useful and thought-provoking read.

Taxing the Working Poor - The Political Origins and Economic Consequences of Taxing Low Wages (Hardcover): Achim Kemmerling Taxing the Working Poor - The Political Origins and Economic Consequences of Taxing Low Wages (Hardcover)
Achim Kemmerling
R1,962 Discovery Miles 19 620 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In most industrialized countries the tax burden of poor people has increased dramatically over the last few decades. This book analyses both the political origins of this increase and its consequences for the labour market. Achim Kemmerling illustrates that tax-based redistribution and employment are not incompatible, and that the shift away from redistribution has not occurred on grounds of economic efficiency. He goes on to show that a long-term shift from capital to labour taxation has provoked conflicts of interests between workers that have weakened the political cause of tax-based redistribution. This interdisciplinary account of the political economy of taxing low wages explains the historical and structural origins of political tensions between different types of workers and their effects on the performance of labour markets. As such, it will strongly appeal to a wide-ranging audience, including academics, students and researchers with a special interest in political science, political economy, labour markets and the economics of taxation. Practitioners in the field of labour market, social and tax policies interested in the normative consequences of taxation for the labour market will also find the book to be of great interest.

The Causes, Costs and Compensations of Inflation - An Investigation of Three Problems in Monetary Theory (Paperback): William... The Causes, Costs and Compensations of Inflation - An Investigation of Three Problems in Monetary Theory (Paperback)
William Oliver Coleman
R881 Discovery Miles 8 810 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book explores the causes, costs and benefits of inflation. It argues that while the cause of inflation is essentially monetary, the costs and benefits of inflation lie in inflation's distortion of the economy's responses to real shocks. The book begins by securing the Quantity Theory of Money from certain critiques. The theory is defended from the `fiscal theory of the price level' by a refinement of the theory of money demand, and from post Keynesianism by the construction of a theory of the supply of inside money. To cope with the endogeneity of outside money, a simple and tractable neo-Wicksellian theory of inflation is advanced, which is shown to exhibit a striking homology with the Quantity Theory. The author then traces the costliness of inflation, not to any disturbance of the money market, but to the damage inflation does to the bond market's function of sharing out disturbances to consumption caused by technological shocks. The same damage, however, imparts an egalitarian dynamic to the accumulation of wealth, which will not occur without risky inflation. The Causes, Costs and Compensations of Inflation will be of great interest to policy makers, central bankers, researchers, and both post-graduate and undergraduate students in macroeconomics, money and banking.

Neri Salvadori, Pasquale Commendatore, Massimo Tamberi
R2,710 Discovery Miles 27 100 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The authors in this book regard the process of economic expansion as a non-homogeneous and multifaceted phenomenon, which has deeply affected human welfare, and cultural, social and political change. The book is a bridge between the theorists (Rosenstein-Rodan, Lewis, Myrdal, and Hirschmann) who in the post-war period analyzed regional inequalities, structural change and dualism, and the modern literature on economic growth. The latter has emphasized the existence of multiple equilibria, bifurcations and various types of dynamic complexity, and clarified the conditions for the emergence of phenomena such as cumulative causation, path dependence and hysteresis. These are the typical ingredients of structural change, economic development or underdevelopment. Investigating the `mechanisms of economic development', this book will be of great interest to researchers and postgraduate students, especially those oriented towards the study of structural and geographical aspects of economic growth and development.

The Political Economy of Macroeconomic Policy Reform in Latin America - The Distributive and Institutional Context (Paperback):... The Political Economy of Macroeconomic Policy Reform in Latin America - The Distributive and Institutional Context (Paperback)
Eduardo Wiesner
R1,007 Discovery Miles 10 070 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Eduardo Wiesner's book makes an important contribution to the understanding of development by blending together the interdependent issues of (i) macroeconomic performance and volatility, (ii) equity and distributive justice, (iii) fiscal deficits and the redistributive effectiveness of social public expenditures, and (iv) the demand for the `right' institutions and for policy reform in Latin America. It does this by examining recent macroeconomic crises from a political economy perspective, and finds that information is the critical algorithm that links together the demand for macroeconomic stability, macroeconomic performance and, ultimately, distributive justice. This volume is geared toward those interested in the political economy of development and policy reform in general and in Latin America, including academics, policy makers, and the general reader.

Beyond Conventional Economics: Selected Works Of E Ray Canterbery (Hardcover): E.Ray Canterbery Beyond Conventional Economics: Selected Works Of E Ray Canterbery (Hardcover)
E.Ray Canterbery
R3,304 R3,054 Discovery Miles 30 540 Save R250 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Beyond Conventional Economics: Selected Works of E Ray Canterbery presents a collation of Canterbery's many contributions to economics. This volume marks the first time that his complete works have been presented, with the scope of the works ranging from microeconomics and macroeconomics to history of thought and methodology. If there is one theme that connects the contributions, it is Canterbery's long-abiding concern with the income and wealth distributions. They are front-and-center in his microeconomics, macroeconomics, history of thought, and even some of his theories of foreign exchange and speculation. Persona who appear in these pages include Abba Lerner, Harry Johnson, Hyman Minsky, Michal Kalecki, Pierro Sraffa, Kenneth Boulding, John Rawls, Robert Nozick, Alfred Eichner, Thorstein Veblen, John Kenneth Galbraith, Joan Robinson, Ayn Rand, Ronald Coase, Lester Thurow, Sven Arnt, and H Peter Gray. Canterbery's policy ideas still have relevance today, as some have been adopted worldwide. For example, in foreign exchange, his delayed peg has been utilitzed in countries that shy away from completely 'free' exchange rates. His criticism of monetary policy decision-making contributed to the idea of more frequent reporting on changes in the federal funds rate.

John Iceland
R564 R421 Discovery Miles 4 210 Save R143 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The United States is among the most affluent nations in the world and has its largest economy; nevertheless, it has more poverty than most countries with similar standards of living. Growing income inequality and the Great Recession have made the problem worse. In this thoroughly revised edition of Poverty in America, Iceland takes a new look at this issue by examining why poverty remains pervasive, what it means to be poor in America today, which groups are most likely to be poor, the root causes of poverty, and the effects of policy on poverty. This new edition also includes completely updated data and extended discussions of poverty in the context of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements as well as new chapters on the Great Recession and global poverty. In doing so this book provides the most recent information available on patterns and trends in poverty and engages in an open and accessible manner in current critical debates.

R234 R176 Discovery Miles 1 760 Save R58 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

40 or 50 families control the economies of Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia. Their interests range from banking to property, from shipping to sugar, from vice to gambling. 13 of the 50 richest families in the world are in South East Asia yet they are largely unknown outside confined business circles. Often this is because they control the press and television as well as everything else. How do they do it? What are their secrets? And is it good news or bad for the places where they operate? Joe Studwell explosively lifts the lid on a world of staggering secrecy and shows that the little most people know is almost entirely wrong.

R10,529 Discovery Miles 105 290 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This two-volume set offers an extraordinary precis of classic articles on the general equilibrium theory of incomplete markets. The first volume presents the contributions to the theory of incomplete markets over a finite horizon. Many of the papers focus on two-period economies. This setting provides the simplest version of the incomplete-market model. However, the study of incomplete markets has evolved from finite to infinite horizon economies. The second volume examines the interesting new technical and conceptual issues that arise from the exploration of incomplete market economies over an open-ended future. The editors have written new, authoritative introductions to each volume, which provide a comprehensive overview and informative discussion of the issues.
