  4. The New Democracies in Eastern Europe

    The New Democracies in Eastern Europe

    Edited by Sten Berglund, Jan Å. Dellenbrant
    The New Democracies in Eastern Europe presents a genuinely comparative perspective on the old and new party systems. Featuring detailed assessment and analysis of the situation in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, the volume draws upon research and opinion from a distinguished group of European scholars. Recognising that many of the social and political problems of the inter-war period continue to make themselves felt, the authors contend that the breakdown of the old authoritarian system was a by-product of a built-in and progressively worsening legitimacy crisis. Despite the great progress made by some East European countries, recent events confirm the view that authoritarianism has not lost its appeal. Learn More

    Essays in the History of International Trade Theory

    Arthur I. Bloomfield
    Featuring eight essays written between 1938 and 1992, the volume includes essays on aspects of trade theory in nineteenth century Britain. These papers contradict the customary view that trade theory in this period was essentially static in character and reveal that many early theorists had a lively interest in the dynamic aspects of the field, such as the influence of technological change on international specialization and the influence of foreign trade and investment on growth. The volume also includes papers examining the foreign trade theories of Adam Smith and Jacob Viner, as well as work on the international trade theories of French economists from the 18th century Physiocrats to those working in the latter nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

  10. DEMAND AND EXCHANGE IN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

    DEMAND AND EXCHANGE IN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

    John Creedy
    Demand and Exchange in Economic Analysis provides a rare combination of detailed analysis of a central area of economics with the history of economic thought. The first part of the book examines major attempts to treat mathematically the partial equilibrium concept of demand conceived as a schedule. The second part, after generalizing Cournot’s model of trade in a single good, traces the general equilibrium analysis of exchange. This adds to the concept of a demand curve the fundamental interpretation of the rate of exchange, or price ratio, in terms of the amount of one good offered in return for a unit of another good. The similarity in the treatments of Mill, Whewell, Marshall and Walras is revealed along with the emphasis on multiple equilibria. Edgeworth’s grand synthesis and extension of Jevons’s approach to exchange is then discussed in detail. The book will be of interest to a wide range of economists interested in placing modern theory in historical perspective. Learn More

  14. APPRAISING ECONOMIC THEORIES

    APPRAISING ECONOMIC THEORIES

    Edited by Neil de Marchi, Mark Blaug
    The methodology of economics has long been dominated by the writings of Karl Popper and Imre Lakatos, two outstanding philosophers of science in the post-war period. This major new book focuses on the application of Lakatosian principles of appraisal to modern economics. An international group of distinguished economists have applied Lakatos’s methodology of scientific research programs to a variety of economic theories, such as game theory, demand theory, consumption analysis, job search theory, equilibrium unemployment theory, the new classical macroeconomics, experimental economics, Austrian economics, Walrasian stability analysis and Sraffian economics. The introduction and afterword by the editors place the papers in the context of the recent rapidly evolving methodological controversy in economics. Taken as a whole, the book makes a powerful statement of the case for assessing rival economic theories with the aid of an explicit philosophy of science. Learn More
