Revisiting Classical Economics from the Author: Heinz D. Kurz. The financial crisis and the economic crisis that followed triggered a crisis in the subject of economics, as it is typically being taught today especially in macroeconomics and related fields. A renewed interest in earlier authors, especially the classical economists from Adam Smith to David Ricardo and John Maynard Keynes, developed. This book may also be seen as a response to this interest. What can we learn from the authors mentioned, what we could not learn from the mainstream? This volume contains a selection of essays which deepens and widens the understanding of the classical approach to important problems, such as value and distribution, growth and technical progress, and exhaustible natural resources. It is the fourth collection in a row and reflects an on-going discussion of the fecundity of the classical approach. A main topic of the essays is a comparison between the classical approaches with modern theory and thus an identification of what can be learned by elaborating on the ideas of Smith and Ricardo and Marx above and beyond and variously in contradiction to certain mainstream view. Since the work of Piero Sraffa spurred the revival of classical economic thought, his contributions are dealt with in some detail. The attention then focuses on economic growth and the treatment of exhaustible resources within a classical framework of the analysis.

The Liberal Party And The Economy 1929 1964 from the Author: Peter Sloman. The Liberal Party and the Economy, 1929-1964 is a study of the development of economic ideas in the British Liberal Party between its electoral decline in the 1920s and 1930s and its post-war revival under Jo Grimond. It analyses the different currents of Liberal economic thought which existed during the first half of the twentieth century, traces the evolution of Liberal policy through the Depression, the Second World War, and the 'golden age' of the1950s and 1960s, and examines the party's complex relationship with both Keynesian economics and the early neoliberal movement. It thus casts new light both on the contours of economic debate in twentieth-centuryBritain and on the ideological antecedents of today's Liberal Democrats.

Handbook Of Income Distribution from the Author: Anthony B. Atkinson. What new theories, evidence, explanations, and policies have shaped our studies of income distribution in the 21st century? Editors Tony Atkinson and Francois Bourguignon assemble the expertise of leading authorities in this survey of substantive issues. In two volumes they address subjects that were not covered in Volume 1 (2000), such as education, health and experimental economics; and subjects that were covered but where there have been substantial new developments, such as the historical study of income inequality and globalization. Some chapters discuss future growth areas, such as inheritance, the links between inequality and macro-economics and finance, and the distributional implications of climate change. They also update empirical advances and major changes in the policy environment. The volumes define and organize key areas of income distribution studies Contributors focus on identifying newly developing questions and opportunities for future research The authoritative articles emphasize the ways that income mobility and inequality studies have recently gained greater political significance

Sanctity Of Contracts Revisited from the Author: Nagla Nassar. This work contributes To The theory and practice of long-term international commercial transactions ('LTICTs'). Such transactions are becoming more of the norm than the exception in the sphere of international trade, since they are the most appropriate tool for meeting the demands of an ever-increasing sophistication in prevailing technology and financial techniques. They mobilize financial, operational and manpower capacities which are beyond the means of any single enterprise. it is this enormous increase in the use of LTICTs that makes a study of their conceptual basis one of significant importance and interest. This work explores the conceptual basis of these contracts, and analyzes international arbitral practice involving LTICTs in pursuit of defining the nature and content of such transactions. This work will appeal to practitioners and theorists interested in arbitration, providing them with a coherent structure of the theory and practice relating To The performance of LTICTs.
