  1. State Capitalism

    State Capitalism

    Edited by Barbara Krug
    This book takes as its starting point the question of whether contemporary state capitalism simply uses different tools than earlier or other variants of capitalism, or whether it is an altogether new kind of economic regime. It brings together key research and commentary which will help to define the concept of contemporary state capitalism as an economic model and present a nuanced view of state capitalism in action. The editor has selected the articles on the basis of their academic merit, but has also included articles representative of the specific academic climate of a certain time such as Marxist-based concepts. Although these may look ‘out-of date’ or have been dismissed as unsatisfactory, they are nevertheless important for an understanding of the development of the debate. A clear original introduction by the editor provides an illuminating guide to this topic and indicates new areas for further study and analysis. Learn More

    Institutions and the Environment

    Edited by Daniel W. Bromley
    This volume contains the definitive contributions to the institutional foundations of environmental issues. It covers the foundations of welfare economics, externalities, market failure, and the central nexus of law and economics. Each contribution illustrates the fundamental importance of institutions – the legal scaffolding of an economy – to environmental problems. This understanding of the institutions of an economy then leads into extensive coverage of how to diagnose environmental problems and then to formulate policy solutions to deforestation, degraded fisheries and pastoral regimes, pollution, land-use conflicts, contested property rights, the tragedy of open-access natural resources and general development problems in sub-Saharan Africa.

    Institutional Entrepreneurship

    Edited by Magnus Henrekson, Tino Sanandaji

  10. Markets and Market Institutions: Their Origin and Evolution

    Markets and Market Institutions: Their Origin and Evolution

    Edited by Mark Casson
    The origin of markets is a central issue in economics and economic history, but until now there has been no definitive reference source on the subject. This authoritative collection fills the gap by reprinting key papers analysing the evolution of markets over the past millennium. These papers, written by leading scholars in the field, relate market development to urban growth, the spread of the credit system, and the evolution of capitalism. They show that markets did not evolve in a purely spontaneous fashion, but as part of the planned development of market centres by local landowners and business people. This volume, with an original introduction by the editor, will serve as an excellent reference tool to students, academics and practitioners interested in the broad field of economics and economic history, and market evolution in particular.

    Edited by Eirik G. Furubotn, Rudolf Richter

This invaluable collection of essays brings together important papers by authors working in the tradition of the new institutional economics. The editors have provided an original introduction which presents a comprehensive overview of their selection. Learn More

  13. International Institutions in the New Global Economy

    International Institutions in the New Global Economy

    Edited by Lisa L. Martin
    International institutions and formal international organizations lie at the heart of the new global economy. International economic interactions occur within a framework of norms, rules and organizations, and an appreciation of this institutionalization is essential for understanding the functioning of the new global economy. The growth of the institutional framework has attracted extensive attention from political scientists, who in recent years have developed more nuanced theories of the international organizations’ form, function and effects, and have begun to subject these theories to systematic empirical scrutiny. For this significant collection Lisa Martin has brought together the most important articles, published since 1982, on the role of institutions in the global economy and has provided a scholarly new introduction which gives a comprehensive overview of the subject.

  14. Markets

    Markets

    Edited by Mitchel Y. Abolafia
    For this authoritative collection, Mitchel Abolafia has chosen the most significant previously published papers and articles in the field of economic sociology, which contribute to an understanding of the organisation of markets. Economists are becoming increasingly aware of the institutional nature of markets, but to date, it is economic sociologists who have carried out much of the analytical work on real world market institutions. To develop our understanding of markets, the time is ripe for a fruitful dialogue across the disciplinary boundaries. Although economic sociologists recognize markets as mechanisms of exchange, they seem to be more concerned with how markets work, rather than with how well they work. The papers selected for this book are the result of empirical studies of particular markets, including markets in options, futures, currency, initial public offerings of stock, biotechnology, women’s apparel, and auctions in a variety of commodities. They indicate an important research initiative to explore how markets really work. Learn More

  16. 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
