  2. Optimal Monetary Policy under Uncertainty

    Optimal Monetary Policy under Uncertainty

    Richard T. Froyen, Alfred V. Guender
    Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in the study of optimal monetary policy under uncertainty. This book provides a thorough survey of the literature that has resulted from this renewed interest. The authors ground recent contributions on the ‘science of monetary policy’ in the literature of the 1970s, which viewed optimal monetary policy as primarily a question of the best use of information, and studies in the 1980s that gave primacy to time inconsistency problems. This broad focus leads to a better understanding of current issues such as discretion versus commitment, target versus instrument rules, and the merits of delegation of policy authority. Learn More

  3. New Developments in Experimental Economics

    New Developments in Experimental Economics

    Edited by Enrica Carbone, Chris Starmer
    The use of experimental approaches in economics is growing at a remarkable rate and the technique is increasingly recognised as an important research tool with wide-ranging applications. Set against the rapid pace and wide scope of experimental research, this two-volume work provides a valuable overview of advances in key research areas over the last decade. The coverage ranges from new work in traditional areas of application (choice, markets and games) to innovative applications of experiments at the interface of economics and neuroscience. The editors, both internationally renowned for their research in experimental economics, have drawn together a fascinating collection which provides broad insight into a field which is reshaping conventional understandings of what economics is, and how economies work. The collection will provide a valuable reference of interest to new students of experimental economics and to postgraduates and professional economists seeking to broaden and deepen their knowledge of new developments.

  5. Economics and the Social Sciences

    Economics and the Social Sciences

    Edited by Stavros Ioannides, Klaus Nielsen
    This book is based on the premise that mainstream economics has become excessively specialized and formalized, entering a state of de facto withdrawal from the study of the economy in favour of exercises in applied mathematics. The editors believe that there is much scope for synergies by engaging in an encounter with economics and the other social sciences. The chapters in this book offer important new contributions to such a development. Learn More

  6. Humane Economics

    Humane Economics

    Edited by Jack High
    Don Lavoie’s published work encompasses a wide range of subjects – socialism, hermeneutics, information technology, and culture. The subjects appear unrelated, but a close examination of his research reveals an underlying unity of thought and an economics at sharp variance with the post World War II mainstream. The contributors to this volume explore the legacy of his scholarship and its implications for economics. Learn More

  7. Putting Econometrics in its Place

    Putting Econometrics in its Place

    G. M.P. Swann
    Putting Econometrics in its Place is an original and fascinating book, in which Peter Swann argues that econometrics has dominated applied economics for far too long and displaced other essential techniques. While Peter Swann is critical of the monopoly that econometrics currently holds in applied economics, the more important and positive contribution of the book is to propose a new direction and a new attitude to applied economics.

  11. Endogenous Time Preferences in Social Networks

    Endogenous Time Preferences in Social Networks

    Marianna A. Klochko, Peter C. Ordeshook
    Marianna Klochko and Peter Ordeshook address an under-studied issue from rational choice theory – the common assumption that individual time preferences are exogenous and fixed. They then present empirical evidence to suggest that this is not the case, exploring a computer simulation model that allows for the evolutionary change of time preferences. This is done, moreover, in the context of social networks that are themselves endogenously determined. Learn More

  14. Discussing Economics

    Discussing Economics

    Michael K. Salemi, W. L. Hansen
    Discussing Economics treats discussion – meaning formal consideration of questions about a reading – as a new approach to learning economics. Setting out a detailed approach modeled on the ideas of Mortimer Adler and the Great Books Foundation, the authors explain why instructors should organize discussion around interpretive questions, how to plan and lead discussion, and how to integrate it into a course. They then provide a guide to over 60 classic and contemporary readings that span much of the undergraduate economics curriculum. For each, they provide a synopsis, learning objectives, recommended questions, and discussion suggestions Learn More

  15. Economic Policy under Uncertainty

    Economic Policy under Uncertainty

    Edited by Peter Mooslechner, Helene Schuberth, Martin Schürz
    Economic Policy under Uncertainty maintains that the question of truth and accountability has not received particular attention in the literature on economic methodology. It goes on to argue that pragmatic theories relate concepts of truth to the beliefs, thoughts and intentional actions of individuals, blurring the relationship between theory and practice. Learn More

  16. Empirical Methods in International Trade

    Empirical Methods in International Trade

    Edited by Michael G. Plummer
    Internationalization of the world economy has made trade a key factor in the growth potential of nearly every nation’s economy. Hence, economists have become increasingly interested in the determinants of international trade and competitiveness. Empirical Methods in International Trade captures the many aspects of this trend in globalization through practical techniques well-founded in economic theory. The authors, comprising some of the most influential applied international economists of their generation, use cutting-edge models to develop empirical approaches to critical aspects of economic interchange. These approaches are developed and explained carefully with the goal of making them accessible to a wide audience. Learn More

  19. Schumpeter’s Market

    Schumpeter’s Market

    David Reisman
    Schumpeter was an interdisciplinary political economist who made institutional transformation the centrepiece of his theory of supply and demand. This comprehensive monograph reconstructs and assesses Schumpeter’s contribution to the restless economics of entrepreneurship, disequilibrium and search. Examining the evidence from all of Schumpeter’s published work, the book fills a significant gap in the literature of economic thought. Partly because Schumpeter was so prolific, partly because he touched on so many interrelated topics, there have been few books that have sought to span the whole of this important author's influential insights.
