1. Creative Destruction

    Creative Destruction

    Edited by J. S. Metcalfe, Ronnie Ramlogan
    This important two-volume set charts the development of scholarly research into the theory of creative destruction, first posited by Joseph Schumpeter in the first half of the twentieth century. The editors successfully bring together seminal works discussing creative destruction and its effects at both a macro- and micro- economic level. Beginning with key writings of Schumpeter, the volumes include research into enterprise and innovation, the evolutionary market process, the empirics of creative destruction, finance and the consequences of creative destruction for growth, development and economic welfare. Along with an original introduction by the editors, this collection will be an invaluable source of reference for academics, scholars and practitioners. Learn More

  2. Path Dependence and Lock-In

    Path Dependence and Lock-In

    Edited by Stan J. Liebowitz, Stephen E. Margolis
    Since their first emergence in the work of Paul David thirty years ago, the dual issues of Path Dependence and Lock-In have become critically important subjects in the fields of economics, sociology, and business strategy. Theoretical and public policy debates on these issues have arisen, addressing whether markets consistently choose the best products. This collection presents each side of the debate, bringing together key publications that initiated this literature with the later works that criticize or defend many of the early claims. Both the theoretical and empirical foundations of Path Dependence and Lock-In are examined along with the role of network effects. An original introduction by the editors is included to situate each article in its wider context. Learn More

    Darwinism and Economics

    Edited by Geoffrey M. Hodgson
    This volume offers outstanding works of recent scholarship on Darwinism covering three major fields of enquiry:   • How Darwinism affects our conception of human nature and challenges long-standing assumptions such as self-interested behaviour. • Analysis of the nature of socio-cultural evolution, its differences from biological evolution and whether it is Lamarckian. • The possibility of generalizing core Darwinian principles to cover evolving entities in the economic and social world, as well as in biology.

  7. Complexity in Economics

    Complexity in Economics

    Edited by J. Barkley Rosser Jr.
    Complex dynamics in economics arise from nonlinear systems that do not converge to a fixed point, a limit cycle, or explode or implode exponentially due to endogenous factors. They arise from cybernetics, catastrophe theory, chaos theory, or the varieties of modern complexity theory, including models with heterogeneous, interacting agents. This major three-volume collection presents the most important papers in the area of complexity in economics. Learn More

  8. The Legacy of Joseph A. Schumpeter

    The Legacy of Joseph A. Schumpeter

    Edited by Horst Hanusch
    This authoritative collection presents an overview of the widespread significance of Schumpeter's thought. Part I examines the reception accorded to Schumpeter's ideas by his contemporaries. In Part II the impact of his scientific ideas from the 1950s to the 1970s is investigated. Part III covers the renewed influence of Schumpeter's thought in the 1980s. While the contributions on industrial economics are presented in neoclassical fashion, the studies of innovation economics and evolutionary modelling reveal further ramifications of Schumpeter's legacy. Part IV highlights the importance of Schumpeterian ideas on modern macroeconomic theories and the final part demonstrates the influence of his thought in other fields such as public finance, sociology, politics and history.

  9. The Foundations of Long Wave Theory

    The Foundations of Long Wave Theory

    Edited by Francisco Louçã, Jan Reijnders
    This two volume set is a comprehensive collection of historical and contemporary articles which highlight the theoretical foundations and the methods and models of long wave analysis. After examining the beginnings of long wave theory, the book includes discussions of time series methods and non-linear modelling, with an exploration of economic development in its historical context. It investigates the process of evolution and mutation in industrial capitalism over the last two hundred years. Contemporary reviews and critiques of long wave theory are also included. It makes available for the first time much important material that has hitherto been inaccessible. The book will be of immense value to all students and scholars interested in the history of economic thought, time series analysis and evolutionary or institutionalist analysis. Learn More

  10. The Foundations of Evolutionary Economics: 1890–1973

    The Foundations of Evolutionary Economics: 1890–1973

    Edited by Geoffrey M. Hodgson
    In the last two decades of the twentieth century evolutionary economics has become one of the most important and exciting developments in social science. It is associated with a huge theoretical, empirical and policy literature. Yet relatively little is known about the development of the foundations of evolutionary economics over the preceding 100 years. The gap is filled by this collection of essays by Thorstein Veblen, John Commons, John Maurice Clark, Alfred Marshall, John Atkinson Hobson, Joseph Schumpeter, Armen Alchian, Edith Penrose, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, Friedrich Hayek among others. An original introduction by the editor places these contributions in their historical context. Learn More

  12. Economics and Biology

    Economics and Biology

    Edited by Geoffrey M. Hodgson
    Economics and Biology is a collection of key essays on the relationship between economics and biology. As the limitations of the mechanistic metaphor in economics are increasingly recognized, this volume explores the potential for the use of evolutionary and other ideas from the science of biology. Topics covered include evaluations of mechanistic and biological analogies in economics in the Darwinian revolution, the use of biology in Alfred Marshall’s economics, the concepts of optimisation and rationality in an evolutionary context and the inspirations that biology may offer for modern economics.

    Experimental economics is a rapidly growing and influential branch of the discipline. In this two volume set the editors have bought together nine topics, including methodological concerns, preference reversals, willingness to pay and willingness to accept, bargaining and auctions, which illustrate the progress made in this area and the current state of play. For each topic they have selected a series of important previously published papers, to which they have added an editorial commentary that sets them in context and indicates which directions future experimental work on these topics might most profitably take.
