  2. Joan Robinson’s Economics

    Joan Robinson’s Economics

    Edited by Bill Gibson
    On the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the 20th century’s most accomplished and controversial economists, scholars from around the world reflect on the legacy of Joan Robinson’s work. Addressing Robinsonian themes in growth, money, trade and methodology, their essays provide fresh perspectives on old questions. Joan Robinson’s first priority was not theoretical perfection or abstract rigor. The arcane debates of the profession had little practical relevance and became increasingly tedious to her. Ironically, much of current economic theory embraces the realism she was striving toward. Indeed, as the essays in this volume show, she was in many ways ahead of her time. Learn More

  5. Democracy and Exchange

    Democracy and Exchange

    David Reisman
    Democracy is the rule of the people. Exchange is supply and demand.

This book assesses the theories of democracy and exchange of five interdisciplinary thinkers who tried to unite political and economic reasoning into a single theory of moderation and pragmatic management.

  7. Hayek and Human Rights

    Hayek and Human Rights

    John C.W. Touchie
    Hayek’s vision of the political and economic future has to a remarkable extent come to pass, and his writings can now be seen to contain much that is orthodox and widely accepted. The tight weaving of insights from diverse academic disciplines into a coherent social theory make his work of heightened relevance today, and many of the core constructs and concerns of his theorizing are useful for discussions of human rights.

    Donald R. Stabile

  11. Political Competition, Innovation and Growth in the History of Asian Civilizations

    Political Competition, Innovation and Growth in the History of Asian Civilizations

    Edited by Peter Bernholz, Roland Vaubel
    Do political decentralisation and inter state competition favour innovation and growth? There has long been a lively debate surrounding this question, going back to David Hume and Immanuel Kant. This book is a new attempt to test its veracity. The existing literature tends to assume that the beneficial effects of inter state competition have been confined to European history. By contrast, China, India and the Islamic Middle East are regarded as inherently imperial and overcentralised. However, these civilisations have not always been unified politically. In their history, there have been long spells of decentralised rule or inter state competition. The same is true for Japan. If the Hume–Kant hypothesis is correct, it should also apply to those periods. This volume analyses the qualitative and quantitative evidence. Learn More

    David Laidler
    David Laidler is one of the leading scholars in the history of economic thought and macroeconomics. This important collection brings together nineteen of his essays on topics in the history of macroeconomics.

Other chapters deal with the major themes developed by monetary economists in the intervening years. Two of the essays appear in their current form for the first time, and several others are reprinted from difficult-to-obtain sources. They should be of interest not just to historians of economic thought, but also to economists more generally. Learn More

  14. General Equilibrium, Capital and Macroeconomics

    General Equilibrium, Capital and Macroeconomics

    Fabio Petri
    This book argues that the shift in general equilibrium theory, from its early long-period to the modern very-short-period versions, has had very important consequences which are insufficiently appreciated by large parts of the economics profession. This shift has produced new difficulties, and has undermined central tenets of neoclassical macroeconomic theory (such as the negative dependence of aggregate investment on the interest rate, or the existence of a downward-sloping demand curve for labour) which had their basis in the long-period versions where capital was treated as a single factor.

The contributors explore their insights and how they illuminate contemporary economic debates regarding women’s status. Learn More
