  11. Trust

    Trust

    Edited by Elias L. Khalil
    Trust is an authoritative collection of previously published articles and is unique in the growing literature on trustworthiness. The broad ranging articles are organized into three parts, expressing three definite answers to the question posed in the introduction: Why does trustworthiness pay? Part I, ‘Trust as Strategy’, stipulates that trust is an investment in reputation. Part II, ‘Trust as Taste’, argues that agents have a preference for trustworthiness, which may explain the anomaly of trustworthiness in single-shot games. Part III, ‘Trust as Trait’, maintains that trust is a trait that evolutionary selection may favor. In his extensive introductory essay, Elias Khalil elaborates and contrasts the strengths and weaknesses of each answer. Learn More

    From Industrial Districts to Local Development

    Giacomo Becattini, Marco Bellandi, Gabi Dei Ottati, Fabio Sforzi
    From Industrial Districts to Local Development introduces a set of papers representing the main contribution of the ‘Florence school’ to the recent literature on industrial districts. The authors illustrate that the revitalisation of the concept of industrial districts, returning to Alfred Marshall’s nineteenth-century writings, is rooted in an unconventional interpretation of the economic development of Tuscany after the Second World War.

  17. Market Failure or Success

    Market Failure or Success

    Edited by Tyler Cowen, Eric Crampton
    Recent years have seen the development of new theories of market failure based on asymmetric information and network effects. According to the new paradigm, we can expect substantial failure in the markets for labor, credit, insurance, software, new technologies and even used cars, to give but a few examples. This volume brings together the key papers on the subject, including classic papers by Joseph Stiglitz, George Akerlof and Paul David. The book provides powerful theoretical and empirical rebuttals challenging the assumptions of these new models and questioning the usual policy conclusions. It goes on to demonstrate how an examination of real markets and careful experimental studies are unable to verify the new theories. New frontiers for research are also suggested. Learn More

  19. Strategic Multilateral Exchange

    Strategic Multilateral Exchange

    Jean J. Gabszewicz
    Jean Gabszewicz’s new book is devoted to the study of strategic multilateral exchange. Contrary to the classical competitive paradigm in which agents are assumed to behave as price takers, here traders are allowed to consciously behave as strategic agents who aim to influence trade to their own advantage. This is usually done in oligopoly theory using a partial equilibrium approach while in this case a system of interrelated markets is considered. Learn More

  20. Industrial Location Economics

    Industrial Location Economics

    Edited by Philip McCann
    Because space is not homogenous, economic activities occur in different locations. Understanding the reasons behind this and understanding exactly how industries are spatially organized is the central theme of this book. Industrial Location Economics discusses different aspects of industrial location behaviour from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives. Each of the analytical traditions provides insights into the nature of industrial location behaviour and the factors which can influence it. Learn More
