  2. Controversies in Monetary Economics

    Controversies in Monetary Economics

    John Smithin
    This influential volume, which has been revised and updated for the twenty-first century, includes both new material and more detailed expositions of existing arguments. Although so-called ‘real’ theories of business cycles and growth are prevalent in contemporary mainstream economics, Controversies in Monetary Economics suggests that those economists who have instinctively focused on monetary factors in explaining macroeconomic behaviour are more genuinely ‘realistic’. The author combines an explanation of past and present monetary controversy with practical proposals for the conduct of monetary policy in the contemporary global economy. Several alternative approaches are discussed, ranging from the traditional quantity theory to post Keynesian theories of endogenous money. Learn More

  12. Say’s Law and the Keynesian Revolution

    Say’s Law and the Keynesian Revolution

    Steven Kates
    This highly original contribution examines one of the most controversial concepts in the history of economics – the true meaning of the Law of Markets. This has been a contentious issue since the publication of Keynes’s General Theory, but has also divided economists since it first emerged almost two centuries ago in the writings of James Mill. This book discusses the change in the understanding of the nature of the business cycle wrought by the General Theory whose major innovation in overturning Say’s Law was to introduce demand deficiency into mainstream economic thought.

  17. THE COMING OF KEYNESIANISM TO AMERICA

    THE COMING OF KEYNESIANISM TO AMERICA

    Edited by David C. Colander, Harry Landreth
    This book is based around a set of interviews with, what might be called, the Keynesian revolutionaries – the individuals most responsible for introducing Keynesian economics to the United States. It includes formal interviews with Richard Musgrave, Abba Lerner, Paul Samuelson, Tibor Scitovsky, Evsey Domar, Robert Bryce, Lorie Tarshis, John Kenneth Galbraith, Paul Sweezy, Walter Salant and Leon Keyserling. These interviews give the reader a sense of what the Keynesian revolution was and how it spread, as well as the hostility these earlier revolutionaries faced, and the similarities and differences in their views. The interviews are introduced by an essay which presents the Keynesian revolution in three parts as theoretical, political and pedagogical, concerned with the development of tools and models to teach macroeconomics. This essay sets the stage for the interviews and relates them to modern macroeconomic debates. The Keynesianization of America is interesting not just to historians of economic thought but also to other economists who want to know about the development of their discipline and to interested lay people and historians who follow the spread of ideas.

  18. Adam Smith into the Twenty First Century

    Adam Smith into the Twenty First Century

    Edwin G. West
    Adam Smith into the Twenty-First Century examines how Smith’s deliberations on constitutional economics can now be tested by current empirical work in the social sciences. Edwin West shows how Smith’s scepticism about the proposition that democracy is conducive to economic growth is supported by modern research. Current social science is also shown to support Smith’s views that government improves with the expansion of trade and that liberty is strongly associated with growing prosperity. Smith’s argument that personal freedom to act should be allowed providing that the ‘laws of justice’ are not violated is compared with J.S. Mill’s view that liberty should be allowed except where ‘harm to others’ may thereby be prevented. Learn More

  19. A SOARING EAGLE: Alfred Marshall 1842–1924

    A SOARING EAGLE: Alfred Marshall 1842–1924

    Peter Groenewegen
    Peter Groenewegen’s outstanding new book places the major features of Marshall’s life and work within the rich institutional setting of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain. This biography sheds new light on Marshall’s decision to study economics – after dropping mathematics, philosophy and psychology in turn – and the background to his important books, including the Principles of Economics, as well as his government advice over three decades. More than just the life of a major economist, it also deals with economics and mathematics education at Cambridge, contemporary controversies over socialism, imperialism, free trade, eugenics, religious belief, social welfare and the women’s movement.

  20. Technology and Industrial Progress

    Technology and Industrial Progress

    G. N. von Tunzelmann
    In Technology and Industrial Progress, Nick von Tunzelmann examines theoretical views on the nature and contribution of technology, and the empirical evidence from the major industrializing countries from the eighteenth Century to the present day. The experiences of countries regarded in their time as the leaders of industrialization – Britain in the eighteenthth century, the United States in the nineteenth century and Japan in the twentieth century – are critically compared by the author. The following chapters study the transfer of each of these patterns of technology and growth to later industrializers, such as continental Europe, the Soviet Union, and today’s newly industrializing countries. Adopting approaches drawn from evolutionary economics, Dr von Tunzelmann links micro-level phenomena relating to individual firms and technologies to macro-level outcomes as reflected in economic growth and development.
