  2. Game Theory and International Relations

    Game Theory and International Relations

    Edited by Pierre Allan, Christian Schmidt
    At the cutting edge of current modelling in international relations using non-cooperative game theory, this collection of original contributions from political scientists and economists explores some of the fundamental assumptions of game theory modelling. It includes a theory of game payoff formation, a theory of preference aggregation, thorough discussions of the effects of interdependence between preferences upon various game structures, in-depth analyses of the impact of incomplete information upon dynamic games of negotiation, and a study using differential games. Numerous illustrations, case studies and comparative case studies show the relevance of the theoretical debate. The chapters are organised to allow readers with a limited knowledge of game theory to develop their understanding of the fundamental issues. 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.

  4. Foundations of Modern Econometrics

    Foundations of Modern Econometrics

    Edited by Olav Bjerkholt
    Ragnar Frisch (1895–1973) played a major role in the foundation of econometrics as a discipline. Joint winner with Jan Tinbergen of the first Nobel prize in economics, he exerted a strong influence both on its development in the 1930s and, as editor of Econometrica for more than twenty years, its subsequent growth following the Second World War. Beginning with his early contributions to utility measurement and index problems, macrodynamics and econometric methods, this outstanding collection of his essays also features his later work on macroeconomic models and planning methods, including programming techniques and preference functions.

    The Elgar Companion to Austrian Economics is a major new reference work which highlights the common ground between all the branches of the school while demonstrating the breadth and diversity within it.

  8. Evolutionary Dynamics and Sustainable Development

    Evolutionary Dynamics and Sustainable Development

    Norman Clark, Francisco Perez-Trejo, Peter Allen
    In Evolutionary Dynamics and Sustainable Development, Norman Clark, Francisco Perez-Trejo and Peter Allen offer a new approach which emphasizes the evolutionary nature of socio-economic systems. This major book begins with a critical evaluation of conventional economic approaches to development planning and then explores how modern general systems theory can show economic development as a process of structural change. The discussion includes the use of decision tools which can simultaneously handle spatial and temporal evolution. The authors develop a model which they explore through case studies of both Senegal and Crete. The model is combined with risk analysis to show how it can be used in computer-based scenarios, before its properties as an aid to decision making are summarized in the last chapter. Learn More

  9. ECONOMIC AND INDUSTRIAL PERFORMANCE IN EUROPE

    ECONOMIC AND INDUSTRIAL PERFORMANCE IN EUROPE

    Edited by David Coates
    In Economic and Industrial Performance in Europe, a distinguished group of scholars compares the fortunes of different European nations in the period of economic restructuring, uncertainty, and generally slower economic growth that followed the oil crisis of the 1970s. Using meaningful quantitative data, the authors address the deterioration and divergence of economic performance across Europe since 1973. They look at attempts to improve domestic competitiveness, labour market deregulation, the impact of research and development on economic success, comparative analysis of state expenditure and debt, the military economy and the social consequences of industrialism and industrial restructuring. This volume seeks to show how the post-war boom has unravelled and how this process has impacted upon different European economies. Economic and Industrial Performance in Europe will be welcomed by students, researchers and policy makers seeking comprehensive, meaningful information on why some national economies have been better placed than others to shoulder the burden of the more intense, global competitive pressures that have become part of the post-1973 world economy.

  10. 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. 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

  18. PUBLIC GOODS AND PRIVATE COMMUNITIES

    PUBLIC GOODS AND PRIVATE COMMUNITIES

    Fred E. Foldvary
    Rejecting the market-failure hypothesis, Dr Foldvary argues that an entrepreneur can provide collective goods by consensual community agreements. Instead of focusing particular services, as previous studies have done, this book concerns itself with entire private communities. A series of case studies demonstrates how real world communities, such as Walt Disney World, the Reston Association in Virginia and the private neighbourhoods of St Louis, are in fact financing their own public goods and services in accordance with this theory. For such communities to rise and prosper, the author contends, government must eliminate restrictions such as zoning as well as the taxation of private services. After considering the implications of his work for urban economies – at a time when many of America’s cities are plagued by decay, violence and poverty – Dr Foldvary argues that prosperity can be restored to cities if private communities are allowed to develop. As an original response to an urgent, contemporary problem this well-written book will be welcomed by social scientists, policy makers and business leaders seeking solutions to problems of urban decay.
