  1. Macroeconomics in Retrospect

    Macroeconomics in Retrospect

    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. It begins with a paper on Adam Smith and ends with a discussion of the implications of Newclassical economists’ ideas on the role of economic ideas in conditioning agents’ activities. 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

    Edited by Ingo Barens, Volker Caspari, Bertram Schefold
    The influence of political developments on the evolution of economic thought is the main theme behind this book.

  3. 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.

  4. The Distribution of Wealth

    The Distribution of Wealth

    Michael Schneider
    The Distribution of Wealth is the first book to provide a comprehensive treatment of the personal distribution of wealth. Michael Schneider uses data from fifteen countries to demonstrate how inequality in the distribution of wealth both varies between different parts of the world and changes over time, before going on to discuss why the distribution of wealth is unequal, whether it should be unequal, and how it could be changed.

These volumes bring together the most important contributions on the subject, ranging from issues about the allocation of time, theory of choice, preference reversal and time in equilibrium to the issues of irreversibility, complex systems and the role of time.

    The Status of Women in Classical Economic Thought

    Edited by Robert Dimand, Chris Nyland
    The Status of Women in Classical Economic Thought is the first volume to explore how the classical economists explained the status of women in society. As the essays show, the focus of the classical school was not nearly as limited to the activities of men as conventional wisdom has supposed. The contributors explore their insights and how they illuminate contemporary economic debates regarding women’s status. Learn More

  9. Evolutionary Economic Thought

    Evolutionary Economic Thought

    Edited by Jürgen G. Backhaus
    Evolutionary Economic Thought explores the theoretical roots of the evolutionary approach, and in so doing, demonstrates how it fits squarely into the theoretical mainstream. Focusing on the institutions of evolutionary change and the processes – such as competition – that generate change, this book takes account of important European contributions to the discipline, hitherto overshadowed by the American paradigm. As such, the book serves to broaden the current discourse. Whilst evolutionary economics itself is a well-researched and widely documented field, this book will be credited with establishing a history of evolutionary economic thought. Learn More

  13. European Economists of the Early 20th Century, Volume 2

    European Economists of the Early 20th Century, Volume 2

    Edited by Warren J. Samuels
    Warren Samuels’s second and concluding selection of essays focuses on early 20th century economists who, while relatively well-known in their times, have tended to be obscured by the more prominent stars of the discipline. It illustrates that economics is more diverse and complex than conventional histories of economic thought tend to identify. In particular it includes contributions on those economists who were not in the mainstream, or, if in the mainstream, practised economics in a somewhat alternative manner. Learn More

    The Legacy of Piero Sraffa

    Edited by Heinz D. Kurz, Neri Salvadori
    It is generally acknowledged that Piero Sraffa was one of the most original and important economic theorists of the twentieth century. The significance of Sraffa’s contributions lies in the fact that he elaborated an alternative to the marginalist theory of value and distribution rooted in the analyses of the classical political economists from Adam Smith to David Ricardo.

  18. 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
