  2. The Integration of International Capital Markets

    The Integration of International Capital Markets

    Haluks Akdogan
    Haluk Akdogan’s innovative study uses asset pricing theories to test the status of international capital market integration. This book differs fundamentally from other studies of integration in two respects. First, it is based entirely upon financial theory rather than the pure theory of international trade, and second, it develops several different empirical models of capital market integration. These models are empirically tested using the modern capital asset pricing approach and drawing on data taken from 26 stock markets all over the world. Learn More

  3. Institutions, Inflation and Unemployment

    Institutions, Inflation and Unemployment

    Edward J. Amadeo
    In Institutions, Inflation and Unemployment, Edward J. Amadeo investigates the relationship between inflation and distributive conflict among social groups in an environment of pervasive uncertainty. Professor Amadeo considers theoretical, institutional and empirical aspects of a problem, chronic and very high inflation, which has been at the heart of the economic crisis in Brazil during the last 15 years. After analysing economic models of wage and price determination in regimes of high inflation, the author examines institutional approaches to the organization of unions and the structure of wage bargains – with emphasis on the centralization of bargains – and concludes with a discussion and empirical assessment of the relation between wage bargaining and inflation in Brazil.

  7. Towards a New Economics

    Towards a New Economics

    Kenneth E. Boulding
    In the first part of the book, Professor Boulding pushes economics towards a more evolutionary type of theory, towards a greater interest in the real world and towards some fairly specific theoretical positions. He stresses the importance of positive-feedback as well as equilibrium processes. The second part focuses on the grants economy, that is the study of the economics of one-way transfers. In part three, he turns his attention to international economic relations particularly the economics of conflict in unilateral national defence. The final part is on ecological systems, stressing that economies are essentially an eco-system of commodities, part of the total eco-system of the world, which is undergoing a constant and irreversible evolutionary change.

  8. The Rise and Fall of Capitalism

    The Rise and Fall of Capitalism

    Y. S. Brenner
    This engaging and intelligent book argues that the unbridled impact of deregulated market forces will lead to social polarization and ultimately to the destruction of capitalist society as we know it today. After providing a lucid and accessible overview of the development of capitalism, Professor Brenner explains how human greed was confined within legal boundaries and shows how ingenuity rather than brute force ultimately became the source of wealth. He explores the interaction between ideas, behaviour and economic change and points out comparisons between scientific ideas and the phases of economic development. He warns that, by an inner logic, deregulated capitalism must necessarily lead to increased inequality and to the waning of those elements in bourgeois culture which are necessary for the proper functioning of a technologically advanced industrial economy.

    Edited by Mark Casson, John Creedy
    How far can efficiency be pursued without sacrificing equity? Do fiscal changes designed to improve incentives necessarily lead to greater inequality of incomes? Does the profitability of ‘big business’ really reflect economies of scale and scope or is it also a reflection of market power? Learn More

    Edited by Simon Clarke
    Management and Industry in Russia is a major examination of production relations in Russian industry during the transition process. Using a series of authoritative and thorough case studies, the authors focus on the gap between formal and informal relations in the work place, a key feature of traditional Soviet industrial production. Focusing on four contrasting regions in Russia – Moscow, Samara, Kuzbass and the Komi Republic – an experienced group of researchers has used a wide range of qualitative and ethnographical research methods to explore production relations in the Soviet enterprise. the research is based on a series of longitudinal case studies of between two and four enterprises in each region.

  11. THE FUTURE OF EUROPE

    THE FUTURE OF EUROPE

    Peter Coffey
    The Future of Europe focuses on the main policy areas where European leaders must take decisions over the coming years. The issues discussed include the EC’s policies for enlargement, greater depth, economic and monetary integration, foreign affairs, defence and citizenship rights. The author, Peter Coffey, offers a considered assessment of the move towards European integration, praising the achievements but also expressing concern about the lack of democratic control in the EC and its inability to co-ordinate its economic, monetary and foreign policies. European union, he argues, must be a selective coming together – a Europe à la carte – if the rights of the individual are to be reconciled with the necessity of creating a common front in selected critically important areas. Written in an accessible and informative style, this key policy book introduces students, teachers and others to the central economic, social and political issues facing present-day Europe.

  12. THE EcoNOMICS OF HIGHER EDUCATION

    THE EcoNOMICS OF HIGHER EDUCATION

    John Creedy
    In The Economics of Higher Education, John Creedy explores the economic foundations of the debate and focuses attention on the process of government decision-making including the precise way that these decisions are affected by the possible external effects of higher education. This book addresses the key issues in the debate using a fully specified model which allows for dispersion of abilities, the individual’s decision to invest in higher education and the government’s choice of higher education grant, along with the government’s budget constraint. This model is also used to consider the effects of alternative tax and grant systems on the distribution of lifetime income within a cohort of individuals, and is extended to allow for the general equilibrium effects of other social transfers to the low paid, along with means testing of grants.

  13. New Perspectives on Business Cycles

    New Perspectives on Business Cycles

    Satya P. Das
    Arguing that changes in the distribution of wealth and income in a private market economy can generate variations in the aggregate output, Professor Das uses a series of models to relate economic inequalities across households to fluctuations in the economy. In particular, he argues that severe inequities in wealth and income distribution can lead to fluctuations in a macroeconomy, with important implications for the financial markets. Empirical evidence from the post-war US economy is presented in support of this theory. Learn More

    THE ECONOMICS OF THE PROFIT RATE

    Gérard Duménil, Dominique Lévy
    The Economics of the Profit Rate presents a broad synthesis of recent work and builds on classical theory, using the tools of modern economics, to suggest alternative approaches to conventional microeconomics and macroeconomics. In sharp contrast to the general equilibrium theory, the emphasis is placed on dynamics and the reaction of individual agents to disequilibrium. This impressive book includes an assessment of the history of the US economy in which theoretical and empirical analyses are consistently combined. Learn More

    THE STATE, MARKETS AND DEVELOPMENT

    Edited by Amitava K. Dutt, Kwan S. Kim, Ajit Singh
    Markets and the state are usually seen as opposed to each other as instruments of economic development. This important new book attempts to go beyond the state–market debate, which it sees as largely the intellectual legacy of neoclassical economics, and the related pendulum swings of opinion favouring one against the other.

    CITIZENSHIP AND DEMOCRATIC CONTROL IN CONTEMPORARY EUROPE

    Edited by Barbara Einhorn, Mary Kaldor, Zdenek Kavan
    In Citizenship and Democratic Control in Contemporary Europe a distinguished group of scholars argues that a democratically reconstructed Europe requires a new approach centred around a concept of citizenship which is neither individualistic nor ethnically based but is concerned with the empowerment of individuals. The authors propose the development of a well-structured and pluralistic civic society which encourages active citizenship and a definition of democratic citizenship which can be expressed through self-organized social activity.

  18. KEYNES, COORDINATION AND BEYOND

    KEYNES, COORDINATION AND BEYOND

    Harry Garretsen
    This book argues that the coordination problem lies at the heart of Keynes's economics. It shows how Keynes's message got lost in the post-War period and develops a more fruitful extension of Keynes's ideas within a general equilibrium framework and alternative frameworks such as post-Keynesian and Austrian economics. It is demonstrated that in the absence of a coordinating device like the Walrasian auctioneer or in the presence of uncertainty, coordination can no longer be superimposed. This ultimately implies that apart from some notable exceptions, the Keynesian revolution was in fact stifled at birth because the validity of the central concepts of microeconomics have never been challenged.

Several chapters document changes in the size of the public sector over recent decades for major OECD and Third World economies. Subsequent chapters then explore prominent explanations including public choice perspectives, bureaucracy models, relative price effects and Wagner's Law, and assess their contribution to current knowledge. The book also provides a number of new case studies of specific government activities – education, health a Learn More

  20. SPATIAL MICROECONOMICS

    SPATIAL MICROECONOMICS

    Melvin L. Greenhut
    In Spatial Microeconomics, Melvin L. Greenhut argues that sellers in a space economy have the power to set prices, and that this power stems naturally from the geographic separation of markets. Focusing on differentiated markets, this collection of his acclaimed essays reveals that even the pricing of services, electrical power and many other goods – although not distance related per se – can be analysed from a spatial perspective. Professor Greenhut demonstrates and empirically indicates how and why modern firms price heterogeneously over differentiated markets. The spatial framework sheds light on the impact of mergers and antitrust legislation as well as on international trade and other issues. Learn More
