Reinventing Functional Finance - Transformational Growth and Full Employment (Paperback, New edition): Edward J. Nell, Mathew... Reinventing Functional Finance - Transformational Growth and Full Employment (Paperback, New edition)
Edward J. Nell, Mathew Forstater
R1,054 Discovery Miles 10 540 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This ambitious book seeks both to revive and revise the idea of `functional finance'. Followers of this doctrine believe that government budgets should concentrate solely on their macroeconomic impact on the economy, rather than reflecting a concern for sound finance and budgetary discipline. Reinventing Functional Finance examines the origins of this idea and then considers it in a modern context. The authors explore the concept of NAIRU and argue that modern economies can operate at the level of full employment without provoking unmanageable inflation. They also contend that budget deficits do not have the deleterious effects commonly ascribed to them; the belief that they do rests on a misunderstanding of modern money. In this context, they highlight the relevance of Abba Lerner's famous dictum, `money is a creature of the State'. The authors also debate the merits of various proposals for `Employer of Last Resort' programs, which combine automatic stabilizers with the buffer stock principle. The book boasts an array of eminent contributors which includes, amongst others, James Duesenberry, Robert Eisner, Robert Heilbroner, Richard Musgrave, Edward Nell and Randall Wray. Financial economists, politicians, policymakers and bankers will welcome this provocative and refreshing book which challenges established economic thinking.

From Keynesianism to Monetarism - The evolution of UK macroeconometric models (Hardcover): Peter Kenway From Keynesianism to Monetarism - The evolution of UK macroeconometric models (Hardcover)
Peter Kenway
R2,536 Discovery Miles 25 360 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Originally published in 1994, this book, divided into three parts, examines macroeconomic models in a non-technical way.

Resistance to Change in the Soviet Economic System - A property rights approach (Hardcover): Jan Winiecki Resistance to Change in the Soviet Economic System - A property rights approach (Hardcover)
Jan Winiecki
R2,323 Discovery Miles 23 230 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

First published in 1991, this book uses a property rights perspective to analyse why there is such widespread resistance to change in the Soviet Economic System. Many within the ruling stratum benefit considerably from their positions, particularly in terms of access to goods and services. In an original conclusion Jan Winiecki argues that a cost-effective way of removing the resistance of the parasitic ruling stratum would be a system of compensatory payments.

The Measurement of Individual Well-Being and Group Inequalities - Essays in Memory of Z. M. Berrebi (Hardcover): Joseph... The Measurement of Individual Well-Being and Group Inequalities - Essays in Memory of Z. M. Berrebi (Hardcover)
Joseph Deutsch, Jacques Silber
R2,655 Discovery Miles 26 550 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Although most traditional economic theory puts the individual at the centre of analysis, more recent approaches have acknowledged the importance of a wider sense of identity as a determinant of individual behaviour. Whether it is ethnicity, religion or gender, group membership is a central part of human life. This book presents new advances in areas which consider both the individual and the group when measuring inequalities and well-being. The first part of the book covers topics such as relative deprivation and happiness, domains where even economists have now recognized the importance of reference groups in the assessment of individuals' well-being. The second part is devoted to the concept of polarization, a growing field of inquiry among economists. The third part looks at income and wage intra-generational mobility, while the fourth part reports on recent advances in measuring the significant differences between and within groups. The book concludes with several chapters devoted to poverty and social exclusion, stressing in particular the need for a multidimensional approach to these topics. This collection offers a fresh look at the way individual well-being should be measured, by emphasizing the role of reference groups and the idea of polarization, as well as stressing the impact on well-being of changes over time to the relative position of individuals. This book should be of interest to graduate students and researchers working in the field of development economics, inequality and poverty.

British Macroeconomic Policy since 1940 (Hardcover): Jim Tomlinson British Macroeconomic Policy since 1940 (Hardcover)
Jim Tomlinson
R2,537 Discovery Miles 25 370 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Originally published in1985, Jim Tomlinson charters the route of British macroeconomic policy in the post-war era. This book argues that the objectives of macroeconomic policy have not been constant; that the emphasis has shifted from one item to another over time; and that this uncertainty and inconsistency over objectives goes a long way to explaining why macroeconomics management has not been a startling success.

Problems of Economic Policy (Hardcover): Keith Hartley Problems of Economic Policy (Hardcover)
Keith Hartley
R2,537 Discovery Miles 25 370 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The book is designed specifically for first and second year university students, with the aim of demonstrating the relevance of theory to policy, how theory can be applied to policy problems and, in the process, to improve their understanding of the theory itself.

The Global Financial Crisis (Hardcover): Mark P. Taylor, Richard H Clarida The Global Financial Crisis (Hardcover)
Mark P. Taylor, Richard H Clarida
R2,349 Discovery Miles 23 490 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The global financial crisis has sent shockwaves through the world's economies, and its effects have been deep and wide-reaching. This book brings together a range of applied studies, covering a range of international and regional experience in the area of finance in the context of the global downturn. The volume includes an exploration of the impact of the crisis on capital markets, and how corporate stakeholders need to be more aware of the decision-making processes followed by corporate executives, as well as an analysis of the policy changes instituted by the Fed and their effects.

Full Employment and Price Stability - The Macroeconomic Vision of William S. Vickrey (Hardcover): William S. Vickrey Full Employment and Price Stability - The Macroeconomic Vision of William S. Vickrey (Hardcover)
William S. Vickrey; Edited by Mathew Forstater, Pavlina R. Tcherneva
R1,968 Discovery Miles 19 680 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Collecting Nobel Laureate William S. Vickrey's articles on macroeconomic theory and policy written towards the end of his career, this volume demonstrates his enduring commitment to full employment and price stability, and his rejection of conventional macroeconomic theorizing.

The Economics of an Ageing Population - Macroeconomic Issues (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Paolo Onofri The Economics of an Ageing Population - Macroeconomic Issues (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Paolo Onofri
R2,869 Discovery Miles 28 690 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Economics of an Ageing Population studies the effects of demographic transition on the economies of industrialised countries. The authors demonstrate that an ageing population does not necessarily lead to a reduction in growth, providing that the working population are more productive and save a greater percentage of their income. They look in detail at the examples of Italy and Japan, two countries which have the fastest ageing populations in Europe and the world respectively. The book begins by studying the past decade of stagflation in Japan. The authors argue that a reduction in innovation, shorter working hours and saturation of demand are to blame for the slow-down in growth, rather than demographic transition. They move on to investigate pension reforms in different countries and their macroeconomic effects on the redistribution of consumption between workers and retirees. They provide tools to compare different pension types (public pay-as-you-go versus privately funded) and argue that alternative pension systems should be evaluated according to their ability to increase potential output growth. Finally, the authors present an empirical model to simulate the impact on the world economy of interactions between countries in different phases of demographic transition. A rapidly ageing population is a problem which, before too long, will face most industrialised countries in the world. This book provides some of the answers to the difficult decisions governments and citizens will have to make. It will be required reading for academics and researchers with an interest in macroeconomics, demographics and public finance, and professional economists working in insurance houses, commercial banks and financial institutions.

David Laidler is one of the leading scholars in the history of economic thought and macroeconomics. This important collection brings together nineteen of his essays on topics in the history of macroeconomics. It begins with a paper on Adam Smith and ends with a discussion of the implications of Newclassical economists' ideas on the role of economic ideas in conditioning agents' activities. Other chapters deal with the major themes developed by monetary economists in the intervening years. Two of the essays appear in their current form for the first time, and several others are reprinted from difficult-to-obtain sources. They should be of interest not just to historians of economic thought, but also to economists more generally.

European Policies for a Knowledge Economy (Paperback, illustrated edition): Maria Joao Rodrigues European Policies for a Knowledge Economy (Paperback, illustrated edition)
Maria Joao Rodrigues
R688 Discovery Miles 6 880 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In 2000, the European Union adopted an overall strategy to effect transition to a knowledge economy. After coordinating the preparation of the Lisbon European Summit which launched this ten year strategy, Maria Joao Rodrigues provides a unique insight into the renewal of European economic and social policies. European Policies for a Knowledge Economy explores the information society and research and education policies which are being combined to build a stronger knowledge base, and enhance the growth potential of Europe via economic reforms, enterprise and innovation policies. The author ascertains that the European social model should be reformed by investing in people, improving welfare provision and fighting new forms of social exclusion. She goes on to argue that macroeconomic policies will help to advance these structural changes. The critical issues and underpinning debates that are highlighted include, amongst others: * reforms targeting the creation of more growth potential * macroeconomic policies which vitalise employment and structural change * policies for the information society aimed at improving standards of living * new priorities for national education policies towards lifelong learning * reforms of the labour markets for more and better jobs * implications of the Lisbon Strategy for the institutional reform of the European Union. Illustrating the challenges of a new strategic goal for European policies, this highly accessible book will be essential reading for a wide-ranging audience - scholars, public administrators, business people and anyone else with an interest in European policies and their implications for national agendas.

The Evolutionary Analysis of Economic Policy (Paperback): Pavel Pelikan, Gerhard Wegner The Evolutionary Analysis of Economic Policy (Paperback)
Pavel Pelikan, Gerhard Wegner
R1,006 Discovery Miles 10 060 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This important book analyses evolutionary approaches to economic policy. Its main purpose is to explore the policy implications of evolutionary economics, in particular of approaches inspired on the one hand by Schumpeter and revived by Nelson and Winter which deal with industrial evolution under constant institutions and, on the other hand, of approaches inspired by Hayek and North, which analyse the ways in which institutions themselves evolve. Hitherto evolutionary economists have paid little attention to policy issues, and the relatively few policy implications that they have produced are divergent. Whereas the Neo-Schumpeterian approach has often been used to support political interventions, the Hayekian viewpoint holds that economic policy detracts from economic performance. More systematic evolutionary analysis of economic policy is required if these one-sided findings are to be transcended. Furthermore, such analysis can be expected to develop a coherent theory of economic policy which will plug the gaps and rectify the errors (such as approval of socialist planning and Japanese industrial policies) of both neoclassical and alternative approaches to policy. Evolutionary economists and policy analysts will find this book of great interest, as will economists and students of economics who are interested in enlarging their views with excursions outside the standard curriculum.

Reducing Poverty in Asia - Emerging Issues in Growth, Targeting, and Measurement (Paperback): Christopher M. Edmonds Reducing Poverty in Asia - Emerging Issues in Growth, Targeting, and Measurement (Paperback)
Christopher M. Edmonds
R1,013 Discovery Miles 10 130 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this book, a group of distinguished authors addresses three broad questions: what broad strategies and macroeconomic policies best support poverty reduction efforts in Asia; what role should targeted antipoverty interventions play, and how should such interventions be designed; and how is poverty measured, what new approaches are needed, and how does measurement affect our understanding of poverty. Each of these three broad themes is also considered together in chapters examining the poverty situations in a number of countries in Asia and the Pacific. The book represents a major scholarly contribution of the Asian Development Bank to the literature on poverty in the region it serves. The organization adopted poverty reduction as the principal objective of its lending in 1999. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of development economics and Asian studies, and will be useful reading for policymakers and development practitioners working in national, international or nongovernmental organizations.

General Equilibrium, Capital and Macroeconomics - A Key to Recent Controversies in Equilibrium Theory (Hardcover, illustrated... General Equilibrium, Capital and Macroeconomics - A Key to Recent Controversies in Equilibrium Theory (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Fabio Petri
R2,761 Discovery Miles 27 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book argues that the shift in general equilibrium theory, from its early long-period to the modern very-short-period versions, has had very important consequences which are insufficiently appreciated by large parts of the economics profession. This shift has produced new difficulties, and has undermined central tenets of neoclassical macroeconomic theory (such as the negative dependence of aggregate investment on the interest rate, or the existence of a downward-sloping demand curve for labour) which had their basis in the long-period versions where capital was treated as a single factor. According to the author, what makes it difficult to appreciate these consequences is the current imperfect grasp of the long-period method (an approach common to classical and to the first generations of neoclassical economists, but nowadays often confused with steady-growth analysis). The origins of this problem date back to the 1930s, and to this day still obscure the history and the logic of the neoclassical approach. The book explains the analytical differences between long-period, steady-growth, and short-period general equilibrium analyses, and proves that on this basis considerable clarification can be achieved, not only in many aspects of the history of economic theory, but also in fundamental issues in the theories of value, distribution, capital, investment, employment and money. For example, the reasons for the disagreements in the `Cambridge controversies' over capital theory become very apparent. This stimulating critique on the present state of economic theory will appeal to academics and researchers with an interest in macroeconomics, the history of economic thought, and the theory of value and distribution. It will also enlighten and inform anyone wanting to understand the reasons behind the current dissatisfaction with neoclassical economics.

The Distribution of Wealth (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Michael Schneider The Distribution of Wealth (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Michael Schneider
R1,968 Discovery Miles 19 680 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Distribution of Wealth is the first book to provide a comprehensive treatment of the personal distribution of wealth. Michael Schneider uses data from fifteen countries to demonstrate how inequality in the distribution of wealth both varies between different parts of the world and changes over time, before going on to discuss why the distribution of wealth is unequal, whether it should be unequal, and how it could be changed. The book focuses on: * alternative ways of measuring the degree to which distribution is unequal * assessment of the relative importance of the various determinants of the distribution of wealth * comparison of the distributions implied by alternative views of society * discussion of means by which the distribution of wealth could be altered, and of whether or not a redistribution in a less unequal direction would in time reduce the amount of wealth available to be distributed. This book will be valued and read with interest by economists, particularly those in the fields of welfare economics, distribution theory, heterodox economics and the history of economic thought, as well as sociologists, political scientists and philosophers.

Structural Macroeconometrics - Second Edition (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition): David N. DeJong, Chetan Dave Structural Macroeconometrics - Second Edition (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition)
David N. DeJong, Chetan Dave
R1,291 R965 Discovery Miles 9 650 Save R326 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"Structural Macroeconometrics" provides a thorough overview and in-depth exploration of methodologies, models, and techniques used to analyze forces shaping national economies. In this thoroughly revised second edition, David DeJong and Chetan Dave emphasize time series econometrics and unite theoretical and empirical research, while taking into account important new advances in the field.

The authors detail strategies for solving dynamic structural models and present the full range of methods for characterizing and evaluating empirical implications, including calibration exercises, method-of-moment procedures, and likelihood-based procedures, both classical and Bayesian. The authors look at recent strides that have been made to enhance numerical efficiency, consider the expanded applicability of dynamic factor models, and examine the use of alternative assumptions involving learning and rational inattention on the part of decision makers. The treatment of methodologies for obtaining nonlinear model representations has been expanded, and linear and nonlinear model representations are integrated throughout the text. The book offers a rich array of implementation algorithms, sample empirical applications, and supporting computer code.

"Structural Macroeconometrics" is the ideal textbook for graduate students seeking an introduction to macroeconomics and econometrics, and for advanced students pursuing applied research in macroeconomics. The book's historical perspective, along with its broad presentation of alternative methodologies, makes it an indispensable resource for academics and professionals.

Alliance Capitalism for the New American Economy (Hardcover): Alan M. Rugman, Gavin Boyd Alliance Capitalism for the New American Economy (Hardcover)
Alan M. Rugman, Gavin Boyd
R2,422 Discovery Miles 24 220 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Alliance Capitalism for the New American Economy advocates engagement with the USA's macromanagement problems in a spirit of alliance capitalism, for the development of a more integrated, dynamic economy. Whereas most studies of the USA emphasise the efficiency effects of intense competition between firms, this book stresses that as the new economy becomes more knowledge based, its development necessitates active intercorporate cooperation, especially in high technology sectors. The book focuses on problems of balance between competition and cooperation in the relations between American firms, as well as in political competition and cooperation for the management of US economic policy. Public concern over the dynamics of the US political economy has increased since the dramatic disclosures during 2002 of high-risk speculation and fraud by major American enterprises. The authors argue that these problems reflect fierce competition, insufficiently restrained by monitoring and regulation. Imperatives for the development of a more cooperative, collegial style of capitalism are stressed. The authors also highlight the importance of technocratic contributions to the development of corporate alliances and address the increasing significance of working skill levels. This volume will provide valuable reading and reference material for all students, academics and researchers of business and competition policy. Corporate managers and government agencies involved in technology, trade, financial regulation and infrastructure development will also gain practical insights into the benefits of a more cooperative model of capitalism.
