  1. Varieties of Capitalism and New Institutional Deals

    Varieties of Capitalism and New Institutional Deals

    Edited by Wolfram Elsner, Hardy Hanappi
    In response to global and technological challenges, this important new book highlights the continuing diversity of national institutional reconfigurations and policy reforms from an institutional-economics perspective. The distinguished contributors offer a fresh and critical appraisal of three interconnected fields of research; ‘varieties of capitalism’, the ‘new economy’ and ‘new institutional deals’. In so doing, this book will undoubtedly become a benchmark for the analysis of comparative institutional systems and for the further development of institutional-economic theory, and state and policy reform.

  9. Teaching Pluralism in Economics

    Teaching Pluralism in Economics

    Edited by John Groenewegen
    This volume is concerned with the different schools within the discipline of economics (theoretical pluralism) and the relationship of economics to other disciplines, such as sociology, political science and philosophy (interdisciplinarity). It addresses the important implications of pluralism and interdisciplinarity for teaching economics at both undergraduate and graduate level and argues that the economics curriculum should pay equal attention to these new perspectives rather than concentrate on the traditional neoclassical mainstream.

  15. Economics and the Social Sciences

    Economics and the Social Sciences

    Edited by Stavros Ioannides, Klaus Nielsen
    This book is based on the premise that mainstream economics has become excessively specialized and formalized, entering a state of de facto withdrawal from the study of the economy in favour of exercises in applied mathematics. The editors believe that there is much scope for synergies by engaging in an encounter with economics and the other social sciences. The chapters in this book offer important new contributions to such a development. Learn More

  17. The Market Way to Riches

    The Market Way to Riches

    Mario Amendola, Jean-Luc Gaffard
    Mario Amendola and Jean-Luc Gaffard argue that all too often, markets and technology are treated as two magic words that will open the door to a wealth of riches. An increasing number of governments appear to be aiming for a pure market economy in order to reap the benefits of a benevolent technology that promises the most spectacular advances. Both markets and technology can certainly be considered essential economic factors, but which market and what technology? Is the current prevailing view of competition without restraints and privatisation at all costs actually the essence of the market? This book maintains that the dominant view mistakes the relationship between growth and technical change and, as a consequence, the role of the market in this context. The authors argue that once the issue is analysed in the proper light, the usual ingredients of the dominant policy recipe – zero inflation, balanced budgets, privatisations, deregulation of all markets, extreme flexibility – may not actually be the appropriate ones.

  18. Complexity and Co-Evolution

    Complexity and Co-Evolution

    Edited by Elizabeth Garnsey, James McGlade
    This book applies ideas and methods from the complexity perspective to key concerns in the social sciences, exploring co-evolutionary processes that have not yet been addressed in the technical or popular literature on complexity. Authorities in a variety of fields – including evolutionary economics, innovation and regeneration studies, urban modelling and history – re-evaluate their disciplines within this framework. The book explores the complex dynamic processes that give rise to socio-economic change over space and time, with reference to empirical cases including the emergence of knowledge-intensive industries and decline of mature regions, the operation of innovative networks and the evolution of localities and cities. Sustainability is a persistent theme and the practicability of intervention is examined in the light of these perspectives. Learn More

  20. An Economic Analysis of Innovation

    An Economic Analysis of Innovation

    Markus Balzat
    The economic analysis of innovation is important because economic growth in highly industrialized countries and international competitiveness are driven by innovations and technological change. At the same time, marked nation-specific features exist in the structure of innovative activities and in innovative success. For the study of these national characteristics, the concept of national innovation systems constitutes a powerful and widely applied inter-disciplinary framework in modern innovation theory. This book illuminates this concept from different perspectives. Starting from fundamental conceptual and theoretical issues, it describes and discusses the main development lines of the approach of national innovation systems, and goes on to illustrate an empirical application of this branch of research, offering a new alternative for the quantitative comparative study of national innovation systems.
