  3. Mixed Economies in Europe

    Mixed Economies in Europe

    Edited by Wolfgang Blaas, John Foster
    The end of the cold war has created a new and unprecedented type of mixed economy in Eastern Europe. This innovative up-to-date book questions whether the former Eastern block countries will follow the path of West European mixed economies, or if a quite different economic system will emerge. Mixed Economies in Europe presents new work by distinguished authors who offer an evolutionary perspective on the dynamics of mixed economies. In so doing, they provide a unique, policy-orientated assessment of the formation and transformation of mixed economies in both Eastern and Western Europe. In particular, they emphasise the importance of institutional arrangements and regulatory frameworks. Learn More

  4. 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.

  6. The Organization of International Business

    The Organization of International Business

    Mark Casson
    Mark Casson pioneered the use of transaction cost theory to explain the boundaries of the multinational firm. In The Organization of International Business, he extends the internalization theory of the firm to encompass, on the one hand, inter-firm networking and, on the other, the internal organization and managerial structure of the firm. The key innovation is the distinction between information cost – the cost of gathering information on the assumption that it is true and transaction cost – the cost of ensuring that the information actually is true. This innovation facilitates a synthesis of transaction cost analysis and organizational behaviour. It also provides new insights into the dynamics of internationalization, and the role of learning in the growth of the firm. Learn More

    Anthony Clunies-Ross

It focuses on a number of measures designed to create stability including fiscal policy, the exchange rate, wages and interest rates.

  9. ECONOMIC THEORY AND POLICY IN CONTEXT

    ECONOMIC THEORY AND POLICY IN CONTEXT

    R. D.C. Black
    Economic Theory and Policy in Context brings together a selection of R.D. Collison Black’s essays on the relationships between economic theory and policy, viewed historically. Beginning with a series of essays concerned with economists and economic policy in nineteenth century Ireland, the volume continues with a section entitled ‘In and Out of the Mainstream’ featuring studies of the work of economists, both famous and obscure, which reflect their author’s special interest in the relation between economics and biography. The final section on the economics of W.S. Jevons brings together papers which encouraged a revival of interest in that economist, including two which were previously unpublished. R.D. Collison Black is one of the very few economists who has used the tools of history to study the relationship of economic theory to policy in detail. Bringing together his most important work in one accessible volume, this collection of his essays will be welcomed by students and researchers in the history of economic thought. Learn More

  12. Fair Principles for Sustainable Development

    Fair Principles for Sustainable Development

    Edited by Edward Dommen
    Fair Principles for Sustainable Development is one of the first books to study the developmental implications of these basic tenets of environmental policy. Having assessed the merits, drawbacks and technical feasibility for developing countries of applying the Polluter-Pays and User-Pays principles, the contributors then examine the Precautionary principle from the same perspective. This is followed by discussion of Subsidiarity, which offers guidance on the application of these principles and aims to ensure that local interests are articulated and incorporated in the decision-making process. Finally an overview by the editor draws the material together to support the application of these principles, particularly in international trade and global environmental agreements, to serve the sustainable development in the Third World.

  16. 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.

  19. 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
