  1. 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

  2. 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 Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished material, novel forms of evidence – both biographical and literary, together with a fresh reading of Robertson’s principal books and essays, Fletcher argues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

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
