  2. Macroeconomic Methodology

    Macroeconomic Methodology

    Jesper Jespersen
    Jesper Jespersen presents a treatise on the importance of the choice of methodology within macroeconomics. Given that no scientifically based macroeconomic policy recommendation should be established without an evaluation of the methods employed, this book gives a clear exposition of how proper macroeconomic analysis should be undertaken. Furthermore, it is convincingly argued that one of the lasting contributions of John Maynard Keynes was his emphasis on methodology; that macroeconomic consequences of uncertainty could not be analysed within the established general equilibrium framework. It is due to post-Keynesian economics supported by critical realism that the understanding of Keynes’s methodology has been resurrected, which has eventually resulted in renewed debate on realistic macroeconomic policies to restore full employment without inflation.

  8. Marshall and Schumpeter on Evolution

    Marshall and Schumpeter on Evolution

    Edited by Yuichi Shionoya, Tamotsu Nishizawa
    This unique and original work contends that, despite the differences between Marshallian and Schumpeterian thinking, they both present formidable challenges to a broad type of social science beyond economics, particularly under the influence of the German historical school. In a departure from the received view on the nature of the works of Marshall and Schumpeter, the contributors explore their themes in terms of an evolutionary vision and method of evolution; social science and evolution; conceptions of evolution; and evolution and capitalism.

    J. Patrick Raines, Charles G. Leathers
    In Debt, Innovations, and Deflation, the authors analyze the deflation theories of Thorstein Veblen, Irving Fisher, Joseph A. Schumpeter, and Hyman Minsky. In so doing, they develop a paradigm for understanding the phenomenon of deflation. They explain how technological, organizational, and financial innovations, combined with developments related to the creation and use of debt, give rise to conditions in which both deflation and inflation can be present in the modern economy.

  13. China’s New Industrialization Strategy

    China’s New Industrialization Strategy

    Y. Y. Kueh
    Deng Xiaoping’s economic strategy is widely regarded as a complete anathema to Mao’s, but this study strongly argues that without the material foundations laid by Mao, it would have been very difficult for Deng to launch his reform and open-door policy. Deng basically shared Mao’s aspirations and approach in pursuit of China’s industrialization, and this had in fact helped to condition him to the successful gradualist methodology. Deng lost patience at times and resorted to the ‘big bang’ strategy, only to fail miserably. Taken together, the book tells a new story about the economics of China’s transition. This is a highly thought-provoking study, blending institutional and convincing statistical analysis. Learn More

  14. Ralph Harris in His Own Words, the Selected Writings of Lord Harris

    Ralph Harris in His Own Words, the Selected Writings of Lord Harris

    Ralph Harris, Colin Robinson
    When Lord Harris of High Cross (Ralph Harris) died, in October 2006, at the age of 81, the tributes to him described him as one of the ‘men who changed Britain’. Friends and opponents alike acknowledged that Ralph, in his role as General Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) and in partnership with his friend, Arthur Seldon, had been instrumental in providing the ideas and the intellectual entrepreneurship that sparked the ‘Thatcher revolution’ of the 1980s, transforming the British economy from one of the worst performers among developed countries to one of the best. This book selects from Ralph’s considerable opus, revealing that economics need not always be a ‘dismal science’. Economic analysis, was, in the hands of Ralph Harris, deployed to great effect in plain language and with a wit and wisdom that made it fun. Learn More

  16. Augustin Cournot: Modelling Economics

    Augustin Cournot: Modelling Economics

    Edited by Jean-Philippe Touffut
    From his earliest publications, Cournot broke from tradition with his predecessors in applying mathematical modelling to the social sphere. Consequently, he was the first to affirm the mathematization of social phenomena as an essential principle. The fecundity of Cournot’s works stems not only from this departure, but also from a richness that irrigated the social sciences of the twentieth century. In this collection, the contributors – including two Nobel laureates in economics – highlight Cournot’s profound innovativeness and continued relevance in the areas of industrial economics, mathematical economics, market competition, game theory and epistemology of probability and statistics. Each of the seven authors reminds us of the force and modernity of Cournot’s thought as a mathematician, historian of the sciences, philosopher and, not least, as an economist. Learn More
