    Edited by Mauro Gallegati, Alan Kirman

    Economics and Social Justice

    Edited by David M. Gordon, Samuel Bowles, Thomas E. Weisskopf
    David Gordon was a pioneer in the burgeoning field of institutional growth economics, introducing the concept of a ‘social structure of accumulation’, and richly illustrating its usefulness with both econometric and historical studies. Gordon also helped to develop the theory of segmented labor markets and contributed to the econometric and historical analysis of their evolution. This authoritative collection of his most influential works – selected and introduced by his two closest collaborators – embraces the full range of his lifelong scholarly endeavor to deploy modern economic reasoning in the cause of social justice.

  5. 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.

  14. Economic Theory and Market Socialism

    Economic Theory and Market Socialism

    Edited by Tadeusz Kowalik
    Oskar Lange was one of the few economists able to observe first hand the three major economic systems that have been the hallmark of the 20th century. He learned about the economic backwardness of peripheral capitalism in pre-war Poland. Later he spent more than twelve years in the bastion of modern capitalism, the United States. After returning to Poland in 1948 he linked his fate to the creation and then reform of the Communist system. Learn More

  17. Towards a New Economics

    Towards a New Economics

    Kenneth E. Boulding
    In the first part of the book, Professor Boulding pushes economics towards a more evolutionary type of theory, towards a greater interest in the real world and towards some fairly specific theoretical positions. He stresses the importance of positive-feedback as well as equilibrium processes. The second part focuses on the grants economy, that is the study of the economics of one-way transfers. In part three, he turns his attention to international economic relations particularly the economics of conflict in unilateral national defence. The final part is on ecological systems, stressing that economies are essentially an eco-system of commodities, part of the total eco-system of the world, which is undergoing a constant and irreversible evolutionary change.

    This important book goes beyond generalizations and takes a hard-headed look at the real strengths and weaknesses of Keynesian demand management and supply side economics. Keynesianism has failed to reconcile high levels of competitiveness with full employment. This was confirmed in the 1980s by the performance of the UK, the US and West Germany. Sweeping de-regulation has not proved to be an adequate solution. Learn More
