  1. Economic Growth and Poverty

    Economic Growth and Poverty

    Edited by Nanak Kakwani, Hyun H. Son
    This single-volume compilation offers an insight to some of the most important questions economists and policymakers have been grappling over. A substantial amount of research has been carried out using cross-country regression models, resulting in a better and improved understanding of the linkage between economic growth and poverty reduction. The literature on cross-country regressions, however, has led to conflicting conclusions. Based on a selection of influential papers, and prefaced by a critical review of the literature, this collection covers an array of relevant topics and thought-provoking material. Scholars who envision a world free of extreme poverty will find this volume particularly valuable. Learn More

    Markets and Market Institutions: Their Origin and Evolution

    Edited by Mark Casson
    The origin of markets is a central issue in economics and economic history, but until now there has been no definitive reference source on the subject.

This volume, with an original introduction by the editor, will serve as an excellent reference tool to students, academics and practitioners interested in the broad field of economics and economic history, and market evolution in particular.
