  3. CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

    CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

    Murray N. Rothbard
    As the first comprehensive treatment of Classical economics from a modern Austrian perspective, this important history of nineteenth century economic thought discusses the key members of each school and reassesses their work. Professor Rothbard’s approach offers new perspectives on both Ricardo and Say and their followers. The author suggests that Ricardianism declined after 1820 and was only revived with the work of John Stuart Mill. The book also resurrects the important Anglo-Irish school of thought at Trinity College, Dublin under Archbishop Richard Whately. Later chapters focus on the roots of Karl Marx and the nature of his doctrines, and laissez-fairé thought in France including the work of Frédéric Bastiat. Also included is a comprehensive treatment of the bullionist versus anti-bullionist and the Currency versus banking School controversies in the first half of the nineteenth century, and their influence outside Great Britain.

  4. TRADE PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

    TRADE PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

    Charles K. Rowley, Willem Thorbecke, Richard E. Wagner
    Trade Protection in the United States analyzes the history of US trade policy to explain why interest groups are able to foster protectionist policies despite the advantages which free trade offers consumers. The authors also explain why the principles of managed trade – as epitomized in the institution of the GATT – are inevitably subverted by protectionism. This important book concludes with a vigorous justification of unilateral free trade and makes a convincing case for protecting the freedom to trade through an amendment to the US constitution.

    The Elgar Companion to Austrian Economics

    Edited by Peter J. Boettke
    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. The Companion reflects the many areas where Austrian economists have made contributions, including technical economics, methodology of the social sciences, political theory and political science. This book includes contributions from an international group of scholars whose work demonstrates a basic similarity and interest in questions which have historically been associated with the Austrian approach to economics, although many of the contributors would not consider themselves to be strictly of this school.

  8. The Market Process

    The Market Process

    Edited by Peter J. Boettke, David L. Prychitko
    The Market Process presents a series of important and innovative articles written by economists of the Austrian School. Covering the gamut of economic issues, including equilibrium theory, free banking, public choice, and the problems of contemporary social reform, the book is an ideal introduction to the diversity of contemporary Austrian economics and its innovative trajectory of research in the late twentieth century. Drawing upon essays published in the journal Market Process during the 1980s, this book reflects an extended dialogue over the value and limitations of Austrian economics. It makes available to a wider audience contributions by some of the leading figures in the field. At the cutting edge of interdisciplinary research, it incorporates the latest developments in areas overlooked by neoclassical economists including process analysis, methodological subjectivism, and phenomenological hermeneutics.

  9. BUREAUCRACY AND PUBLIC ECONOMICS

    BUREAUCRACY AND PUBLIC ECONOMICS

    William A. Niskanen
    Bureaucracy and Public Economics brings together in one volume the classic book and related articles which put forward the first formal economic theory of the behaviour of bureaucracies. William Niskanen Jr. has consistently argued that bureaucrats have personal objectives – that differ from those of both their political supervisors and the general public – which they further by use of their monopoly power. He develops his argument to contend that government budgets have become too large and should be curtailed. All of Professor Niskanen’s major contributions to this field have been brought together in this one volume including his pioneering article on ‘The Peculiar Economics of Bureaucracy’, the full text of the book ‘Bureaucracy and Representative Government’ and his recent reassessment of the larger body of scholarship on the economics of bureaucracy.

  11. ETHICS AND ECONOMIC THEORY

    ETHICS AND ECONOMIC THEORY

    Kurt W. Rothschild
    This distinguished book provides a critical assessment of the relationship between economic theory, scientific objectivity and ethics. The main purpose of economic science is to analyse and ‘explain’ the economic process but not necessarily to pass judgement as to whether this process is ‘good’ or ‘bad’. However, in practice it is very difficult for the economist to study the ‘laws’ of economics without ever touching ethical questions. It is shown that economic theories – despite avowals of scientific objectivity – contain implicitly or explicitly many aspects which have ethical implications. Making extensive use of real-life examples and offering a new perspective on the ethical dimensions of economic analysis, this book will prove essential reading for economists and philosophers alike.

  12. THE MARKET, COMPETITION AND DEMOCRACY

    THE MARKET, COMPETITION AND DEMOCRACY

    Stavros Ioannides
    The Market, Competition and Democracy provides a comprehensive critique of neo-Austrian economics, from the work of von Mises and Hayek in the 1920s to the present day. It is argued that, in their effort to deprive the state of any power to intervene in the economy, the neo-Austrians are led to a rejection of democratic politics and, thus, instead of promoting liberty, their ideas lead to an authoritarian political structure.
