1. Culture, Social Norms and Economics

    Culture, Social Norms and Economics

    Edited by Mark Casson
    Economists have often been accused of failing to take full account of culture and social norms in their explanations of human behaviour. Cultural factors are playing an increasingly important role in economic theorizing and are achieving greater recognition as determinants of economic performance. As such these volumes will be a landmark and will provide easy access to the most important articles in this expanding field. Learn More

  2. Not Just for the Money

    Not Just for the Money

    Bruno S. Frey
    In Not Just for the Money Professor Frey challenges traditional economic theory and argues that people do not act in expectation of monetary gain alone, nor do they work solely because they are paid. Furthermore, the author claims that higher monetary compensation as well as regulations crowd-out motivation in important circumstances. Offering higher pay may make people less committed to their work and may reduce their performance. They thus behave in exactly the opposite way the fundamental price-effect of economics predicts.

  5. Cognitive Science

    Cognitive Science

    Edited by Noel Sheehy, Antony J. Chapman
    Cognitive science is the study of intelligence and intelligent systems. Several disciplines including psychology, philosophy, linguistics and the neurosciences have well-established interests in these topics. Cognitive science is an attempt to organise and unify views of thought developed within these distinct disciplines. Cognitive Science is concerned with the construction of abstract theory of intelligent processes, the investigation of human and animal intelligence with the goal of developing a theory of intelligent processes from these observations and the investigation of computational principles that underlie the organisation and behavior of computer programmes. This three volume set presents a careful selection of the most important seminal articles on cognitive science. The editors have prepared a new comprehensive introduction to accompany the volumes.

  6. Ergonomics and Human Factors

    Ergonomics and Human Factors

    Edited by David Oborne
    Ergonomics (ergos – work; nomos – laws) and Human Factors have almost identical characteristics and identities and have both developed in similar ways, within the same period, and for the same reasons. The Ergonomics philosophy is the amalgamation of information from psychology, physiology and engineering to enable the environment to be designed to ‘fit’ the person. Ergonomics and Human Factors evolved at around the time of World War II, when fighting and defensive machines were being built far beyond the capacities and capabilities of the operators. Learn More

    This title appears exactly 20 years after the publication of Altruism, Morality and Economic Theory, an important volume edited by E.S. Phelps which contains the proceeding of a conference where social scientists and philosophers met to speculate on the roles that altruism and morality play in shaping human behaviour and economic institutions within our societies. Until recently this discipline was considered of minor importance – now there is clear evidence of its growing interest. Learn More

  8. Implicit Contract Theory

    Implicit Contract Theory

    Edited by Sherwin Rosen
    This title brings together the most innovative and important work on implicit contract theory, a key area of research which has developed over the past 20 years. Implicit contract theory is concerned with the workings of the macro-labour market over business cycles and focuses on a series of key questions including, how economists can explain unemployment levels and employment fluctuations during recessions in terms of rational economic behaviour, and, why wages do not fall to clear the market.

    Experimental economics is a rapidly growing and influential branch of the discipline. In this two volume set the editors have bought together nine topics, including methodological concerns, preference reversals, willingness to pay and willingness to accept, bargaining and auctions, which illustrate the progress made in this area and the current state of play. For each topic they have selected a series of important previously published papers, to which they have added an editorial commentary that sets them in context and indicates which directions future experimental work on these topics might most profitably take.

    This two volume set brings together the key research articles and papers on our basic attentional limitations when listening to two messages spoken at once and the major opposing theories which have sought to account for these limitations. It also includes the evidence which has been used to attempt to distinguish between these theories as well as contemporary analyses of the role of attention in the regulation of verbal and non-verbal behaviour. In addition to milestone research papers which set out our attentional limitations and the major explanations of these limitations, the articles in these two volumes represent contemporary investigations of attention and consciousness by experimental psychologists.

  12. Contemporary Issues in Applied Economics

    Contemporary Issues in Applied Economics

    Edited by Graham Bird, Heather Bird
    This textbook builds a bridge between the economic principles which form the basis of most introductory textbooks and the issues that students see discussed incessantly in the media. Contemporary Issues in Applied Economics shows how even the most elementary economic analysis can shed new light on some of the principal economic problems which face the world today. Although aimed primarily at first year economics students, it will also be of interest to those studying related subjects which require a background knowledge of economics. The lively subject matter coupled with the non-technical nature of the approach means that the book will be of interest not only to economics students but also to non-specialists wishing to keep well informed about current issues of economic policy.

  14. Experimental Economics

    Experimental Economics

    Edited by Vernon L. Smith
    Experimental Economics includes the study of individual decision making in which an isolated individual chooses many alternatives that have a monetary (or commodity) value defined quantitatively by the experiment. Experimental methods have enjoyed a vast expansion in the quality, depth and diversity of economic questions to which laboratory experiments have been applied. It is characterised by a growing recognition that markets are most meaningfully studied and understood within the context of institutions. This collection includes influential, as well as representative, examples of the growth and development of experimental economics. Learn More
