  2. Uncertainty in Economic Thought

    Uncertainty in Economic Thought

    Edited by Christian Schmidt
    Uncertainty in Economic Thought brings together an international group of scholars to explore the treatment of uncertainty in various different schools of economic thought. Beginning with the nineteenth century and the Austrian School, this major volume discusses orthodox and heterodox views on risk, uncertainty and expectations, from Knight and Keynes to Maurice Allais. Demonstrating that new insights can be found by examining the work of past economists, the authors focus on the two major paths linking uncertainty to economics: the decision-making process itself and system dynamics. After addressing the foundations and concepts of the uncertainty debate, the distinguished contributors, who include such figures as Mark Perlman, Charles McCann, Christian Schmidt, Omar Hamouda and Robin Rowley, discuss the main trends in the history of economic thought aswell as statistical and mathematical approaches.

  16. APPRAISING ECONOMIC THEORIES

    APPRAISING ECONOMIC THEORIES

    Edited by Neil de Marchi, Mark Blaug
    The methodology of economics has long been dominated by the writings of Karl Popper and Imre Lakatos, two outstanding philosophers of science in the post-war period. This major new book focuses on the application of Lakatosian principles of appraisal to modern economics. An international group of distinguished economists have applied Lakatos’s methodology of scientific research programs to a variety of economic theories, such as game theory, demand theory, consumption analysis, job search theory, equilibrium unemployment theory, the new classical macroeconomics, experimental economics, Austrian economics, Walrasian stability analysis and Sraffian economics. The introduction and afterword by the editors place the papers in the context of the recent rapidly evolving methodological controversy in economics. Taken as a whole, the book makes a powerful statement of the case for assessing rival economic theories with the aid of an explicit philosophy of science. Learn More

    Capitalism as a Moral System

    Spencer J. Pack
    This powerful and thoroughly documented book overturns many long-held beliefs about Adam Smith. Spencer Pack demonstrates that contrary to popular myth, Adam Smith was not a dogmatic defender of laissez-faire capitalism and neither was he in favour of regressive taxation. The book stresses for the first time the many qualms and problems – indeed the profound ambiguity – which Adam Smith felt toward the capitalist system. Learn More
