1. A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

    A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

    Edited by Robert W. Dimand, Mary Ann Dimand, Evelyn L. Forget
    This major original reference work includes over one hundred specially commissioned articles on the lives and writings of women who made significant contributions to economics. It sheds new light on the rich, but too often neglected, heritage of women’s analysis of economic issues and participation in the discipline of economics. In addition to those who wrote in English, some notable Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Swedish women economists are included. This book will transform widely-held views about the past role of women in economics, and will stimulate further research in this exciting but underdeveloped field. It is dedicated to the memory of Michèle Pujol, a pioneer in the field. Learn More

  9. Economics and its Discontents

    Economics and its Discontents

    Edited by Richard P.F. Holt, Steven Pressman
    In Economics and its Discontents each chapter explains what it means to be a dissenting economist and examines how and why the work of the featured economist constitutes dissent. It demonstrates that dissent in the profession extends beyond ideology and that dissenters can come from radical, liberal or conservative backgrounds. Dissent is considered in many respects, including how economics is taught, the methodology of economic analysis, the lack of attention economists pay to the real world behaviour of individuals, the narrow and limited assumptions made by economists, the inappropriate attempt of economics to dominate all social sciences, and the policy conclusions reached by standard economic analysis. The dissenters featured in this book suggest that there is a better way to do economics, and a better way to be an economist, and each has helped keep economics honest by constantly questioning traditional thinking. This book salutes and celebrates these dissenters who exemplify the very best of the discipline. If economics is again to be a respected field and a highly regarded profession, we must look to these dissenters to point the way forward. Learn More

    This collection surveys the contributions which economists have made to our understanding of gender. The articles reflect both the strengths and weaknesses of mainstream economics in conceptualizing and explaining gender differences. They include selections from and commentaries on the classics which illustrate relevant aspects of the methodological development of economics; important treatments of the key issues such as female labour supply and male-female wage differences; recent feminist charges that economics is methodologically unsuited to the analysis of gender; and evidence on the historical significance of women’s work.

    Economic Theory and Market Socialism

    Edited by Tadeusz Kowalik

After returning to Poland in 1948 he linked his fate to the creation and then reform of the Communist system. Learn More
