  1. The Institutional Economy

    The Institutional Economy

    David Reisman
    This thorough and comprehensive book examines the role that institutions play in economic life. The discussion begins with common values, shared traditions and individual habits which have their roots in the past. It goes on to consider consumer preferences, needs and wants, altruism, malevolence, intrinsic motivation, organisational memory and the social capital that is embedded in networks and communities. Its conclusion is that there is a case for a broadly-based economics which is a science of norms and standards as well as a theory of prices and costs. Culture is continuity and pattern. Precisely the same is true of supply and demand. Learn More

    Reflections on the Great Depression

    Randall E. Parker
    This book explores the most prominent economic explanations of the Great Depression and how it affected the lives, experiences, and subsequent thinking of economists who lived through that era.

  4. International Trade and Economic Growth in Open Economies

    International Trade and Economic Growth in Open Economies

    John Berdell
    In this enlightening book, John Berdell addresses the widely-held belief that classical economics distanced itself from policy issues and public debates regarding the effects of international trade on economic growth in advanced economies. He argues, through a detailed consideration of the evolution and structure of Hume’s, Smith’s, Ricardo’s and Malthus’ analyses, that it is not only contemporary international economic theory which takes account of these issues.

  7. The State, Regulation and the Economy

    The State, Regulation and the Economy

    Edited by Lars Magnusson, Jan Ottosson
    Regulatory regimes appear wherever market economies exist and whenever there is competition for limited resources. However, the rationale of public regulation of markets, as well as the mechanisms that characterise regulatory regimes, is not well understood. The State, Regulation and the Economy illustrates how economic theory, whether positive or normative, is not convincing in explaining the complex interactions between the state and the market. Instead, the book examines regulation and state intervention from an institutional and historical perspective. Learn More

  10. Growth Theory in Historical Perspective

    Growth Theory in Historical Perspective

    Edited by Theo C.M.J. van de Klundert, Sjak Smulders
    Growth Theory in Historical Perspective is a collection of thirteen carefully selected essays by Theo van de Klundert which demonstrate the development of growth theory over the past forty years. The sequence of chapters reveals the shifts in focus which have occurred since the first formal growth models of the 1940s and 1950s. He illustrates how the Keynesian paradigm was replaced by neo-classical models, which in turn have been superseded by theories of endogenous technical progress, the focus of growth theory in the 1990s.

  14. Marx, Veblen, and Contemporary Institutional Political Economy

    Marx, Veblen, and Contemporary Institutional Political Economy

    Phillip A. O’Hara
    This book uses an institutional–evolutionary approach to analyse economic problems associated with developments in capitalism during the second half of the twentieth century. It argues that economics should centre on institutions – the durable fabric of the economy over time. Drawing on the foundations of Marxist and institutional political economy, the book traces the lineages of institutional themes, as well as considering feminist, post-Keynesian, holistic economics and Schumpeterian perspectives. The nature of institutions in the growth and instability of capitalism is then explored with reference to social structures of accumulation. Learn More

  15. Understanding Dennis Robertson

    Understanding Dennis Robertson

    Gordon Fletcher
    In this fascinating study Gordon Fletcher explores the relationship between the life and work of one of Britain’s most distinguished economists, Sir Dennis Holme Robertson (1890–1963). Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished material, novel forms of evidence – both biographical and literary, together with a fresh reading of Robertson’s principal books and essays, Fletcher argues that Robertsonian economics is indelibly stamped with the impression of Robertson the man and that by better understanding the man we shall better understand his economics. He shows that this is particularly the case with respect to the way in which Robertson’s thought developed and to its particular characteristics, which have often been described by commentators but never explained. Most interestingly, he accounts for Robertson’s breach with his Cambridge colleague J.M. Keynes. With these insights we glimpse the hidden human face of what is all too often regarded as the bloodless discipline, the dismal science. Learn More

  16. Ethics and Uncertainty

    Ethics and Uncertainty

    William Greer
    Ethics and Uncertainty explores how two economists, who both placed ‘uncertainty’ at the heart of their economic theories, come to drastically different and opposing policy recommendations. The volume illustrates that the important lesson to learn from both Knight and Keynes is that ethics and the desire to improve mankind should be the focus of economic enquiry. Learn More

  19. The Early History of Financial Economics, 1478–1776

    The Early History of Financial Economics, 1478–1776

    Geoffrey Poitras
    By the time The Wealth of Nations had appeared, financial economics featured a well developed body of scientific knowledge, covering subjects such as fixed income evaluation, life insurance and derivative securities. From beginnings which are traced back to the commercial arithmetic of the Renaissance reckoning schools, by the latter part of the 18th century financial economics had witnessed contributions by the likes of Abraham de Moivre, Edmond Halley and Simon Stevin. This book chronicles the development of early financial economics, from the appearance of the first printed commercial arithmetic in 1478 to the publication of The Wealth of Nations in 1776.

  20. The Kennedy–Johnson Tax Cut

    The Kennedy–Johnson Tax Cut

    Martin F.J. Prachowny
    The 1964 Kennedy–Johnson tax cut is often cited as the single most successful application of Keynesian stabilization policy. The author challenges this orthodox historical view by exposing the haphazard planning, simplistic economic theorizing, irreconcilable numerical projections, and partisan political influences on the Council of Economic Advisers.
