Twenty-First Century Macroeconomics - Responding to the Climate Challenge (Paperback): Jonathan M Harris, Neva R. Goodwin Twenty-First Century Macroeconomics - Responding to the Climate Challenge (Paperback)
Jonathan M Harris, Neva R. Goodwin
R949 Discovery Miles 9 490 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The authors and editors of this book challenge traditional assumptions about economic growth, and develop the elements of a reoriented macroeconomics that takes account both of environmental impacts and social equity. Policies including carbon trading, revenue recycling, and reorientation of private and social investment are analyzed, providing insight into new paths for economic development with flat or negative carbon emissions. These issues will be crucial to macroeconomic and development policies in the twenty-first century. What are the likely economic effects of climate change? What are the costs of substantial action to avert climate change? What economic policies can be effective in responding to climate change? The debate has broad implications for public policy. However, it also raises fundamental questions about economic analysis itself, and moves issues of environmental policy from the microeconomic to the macroeconomic level. Taking global climate change seriously requires a re-examination of macroeconomic goals. Economic growth has been closely linked to expanded use of energy, primarily fossil fuels. The assumption of continuing economic growth, in turn, leads economists to discount future costs, including the generational impacts of climate change. Challenging conventional concepts of growth implies different development paths both for rich and poor nations. This volume brings together contributions from scholars around the world to address these issues. Scholars, researchers and students of economics and development studies along with policymakers and non-governmental organizations will find this insightful book of great interest.

Money, Investment and Consumption - Keynes'S Macroeconomics Rethought (Hardcover): Omar F. Hamouda Money, Investment and Consumption - Keynes'S Macroeconomics Rethought (Hardcover)
Omar F. Hamouda
R2,065 Discovery Miles 20 650 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Contrary to the commonly perpetuated belief that Keynes's theory is appropriate only to economic depressions, the author of this provocative book maintains that Keynes provided a complete set of macroeconomic relations and the ingredients of a new theoretical model, much more reflective of and analytically appropriate to the 21st century than those on which current macroeconomics is based. With the perspective of Keynes as the backdrop, the author begins with a discussion of the characteristics of the financial crises of 2008 and the 1930s. He then goes on to show that Keynes provided a novel, general theory, constructed as the EC-SP model (different from that of the Classicals' Labour Theory of Value model and the neoClassicals' antithetical IS-LM model), a theory yet unrecognized as being behind both A Treatise on Money and The General Theory. He presents here the premises of Keynes's contributions which still await use by a generation of economists to reassess macroeconomics and orient it in a new direction. This unique and authoritative look at Keynes's body of work will be an essential read for scholars and students of economics. Anyone trying to understand the state of the `entrepreneurial economy', of which the 2008 financial crisis is but one manifestation prone to recurrence, will find the work an important resource.

Beyond Inflation Targeting - Assessing the Impacts and Policy Alternatives (Hardcover): Gerald A. Epstein, A. Erinc Yeldan Beyond Inflation Targeting - Assessing the Impacts and Policy Alternatives (Hardcover)
Gerald A. Epstein, A. Erinc Yeldan
R2,568 Discovery Miles 25 680 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book, written by an international team of economists, develops concrete, country specific alternatives to inflation targeting, the dominant policy framework of central bank policy that focuses on keeping inflation in the low single digits to the virtual exclusion of other key goals such as employment creation, poverty reduction and sustainable development. The book includes thematic chapters, including analyses of class attitudes toward inflation and unemployment and the gender impacts of restrictive monetary policy. Other chapters propose improved monetary frameworks for Argentina, Brazil, India, Mexico, the Philippines, South Africa, Turkey, and Vietnam. Policy frameworks that are explored include employment targeting, and targeting a stable and competitive real exchange rate. The authors also show that to reach a larger number of targets, including higher employment and stable inflation, central banks must use a larger number of instruments, including capital management techniques. This volume offers concrete, socially valuable alternatives that economists, policy makers, students and interested laypeople should consider before adopting one size fits all, often inadequate, policies that have become a virtual policy making fad.

William A. Allen
R1,888 R1,743 Discovery Miles 17 430 Save R145 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Bank of England and the Government Debt recounts the surprising history of the Bank of England's activities in the government securities market in the mid-twentieth century. The Bank's governor, Montagu Norman, had a decisive influence on government debt management policy until he retired in 1944, and established an auxiliary market in government securities outside the Stock Exchange during the Second World War. From the early 1950s, the Bank, concerned about inadequate market liquidity, became an increasingly active market-maker in government securities, rescuing the commercial market-makers in the Stock Exchange several times. The Bank's market-making activities often conflicted with its monetary policy objectives, and in 1971, it curtailed them substantially, while avoiding the damaging effects on liquidity in the government securities market that it had feared. Drawing heavily on archival research, William A. Allen sheds light on little-known aspects of central-banking and monetary policy.

Money and Households in a Capitalist Economy - A Gendered Post Keynesian-Institutional Analysis (Hardcover): Zdravka Todorova Money and Households in a Capitalist Economy - A Gendered Post Keynesian-Institutional Analysis (Hardcover)
Zdravka Todorova
R1,959 Discovery Miles 19 590 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Post Keynesian analyses of monetary production have not given much attention to households as institutions, while a good deal of the literature in feminist economics discusses households in a strictly microeconomic context, with little consideration of monetary phenomena. This book, a unique study of the capitalist economy, utilizes a distinctive combination of Post Keynesian, institutional, and gender analysis to examine household economics in capitalist society in order to flesh out the gaps in each. The author poses questions that cut across rigidly determined areas of inquiry, such as gender and money, and micro- and macroeconomic analysis. She grounds the discussion of households and their social and financial relations within a monetary theory of production, and provides many methodological, theoretical, and policy formulation insights to establish a framework that illuminates current problems of household debt.

Monetary Policy Frameworks for Emerging Markets (Hardcover): Gill Hammond, Ravi Kanbur, Eswar S. Prasad Monetary Policy Frameworks for Emerging Markets (Hardcover)
Gill Hammond, Ravi Kanbur, Eswar S. Prasad
R2,861 Discovery Miles 28 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Financial globalisation has made the formulation of monetary policy in emerging market economies increasingly complicated. This timely set of studies looks at the turmoil in global financial markets, which, coupled with volatile inflation, poses serious challenges for central banks in these countries. The book features a number of specially commissioned new papers from both front-line policymakers and researchers in developing and emerging market economies, which tackle the difficult issues currently being debated with increasing urgency by monetary policy theorists and policymakers around the world. They address questions such as: `What monetary policy framework is most suitable for emerging market countries to confront the new challenges while they continue to open up to trade and financial flows?', `What are the linkages between monetary stability and financial stability?' and `Is inflation targeting or a fixed exchange rate regime preferable for developing and emerging markets?' Providing unique insights on the interaction between the theory and practice of monetary policy in emerging markets, this book will be of great interest to academics and students of economics, economic policy and development economics. Policymakers will also find this to be a useful and thought-provoking read.

Long-Run Growth, Social Institutions and Living Standards (Hardcover): Neri Salvadori, Arrigo Opocher Long-Run Growth, Social Institutions and Living Standards (Hardcover)
Neri Salvadori, Arrigo Opocher
R2,675 Discovery Miles 26 750 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This engaging book contains a set of original contributions to the much-debated issues of long-run economic growth in relation to institutional and social progress. It explores the mutual relationships between living standards, social habits, education and health systems, labour market regulation and participatory rules on one hand, and the growth of the economy on the other. These mutual relationships underpin the differences between long-run growth rates in different countries, and in their variations through time. The book also analyses fundamental historical, empirical and theoretical aspects of the many self-reinforcing mechanisms of growth, such as poverty traps or industrial take-offs. It offers a lively representation of the reasons why no lasting economic growth is possible without wider institutional, intellectual and ethical progress. Uncommitted to a specific overall economic theory, the contributors freely discuss their understanding of specific aspects of this complex subject. This stimulating integrated analysis of the main social drivers of economic growth will strongly appeal both to academic and practising economists, and to postgraduate students interested in growth theory and social studies.

The Paradox of Vulnerability - States, Nationalism, and the Financial Crisis (Paperback): John L. Campbell, John A. Hall The Paradox of Vulnerability - States, Nationalism, and the Financial Crisis (Paperback)
John L. Campbell, John A. Hall
R545 R422 Discovery Miles 4 220 Save R123 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Why are small and culturally homogeneous nation-states in the advanced capitalist world so prosperous? Examining how Denmark, Ireland, and Switzerland managed the 2008 financial crisis, The Paradox of Vulnerability shows that this is not an accident. John Campbell and John Hall argue that a prolonged sense of vulnerability within both the state and the nation encourages the development of institutions that enable decision makers to act together quickly in order to survive, especially during a crisis. Blending insights from studies of comparative political economy and nationalism and drawing on both extensive interviews and secondary data, Campbell and Hall support their claim by focusing on the three states historically and, more important, in their different responses to the 2008 crisis. The authors also devote attention to the difficulties faced by Greece and Iceland. The implications of their argument are profound. First, they show that there is a positive side to nationalism: social solidarity can enhance national prosperity. Second, because globalization now requires all states to become more adaptable, there are lessons here for other states, large and small. Lastly, the formula for prosperity presented here is under threat: highly homogeneous societies face challenges in dealing with immigration, with some responding in ways that threaten their success. The Paradox of Vulnerability demonstrates how the size and culture of a nation contribute in significant ways to its ability to handle political and economic pressures and challenges.

Monetary Policy and Financial Stability - A Post-Keynesian Agenda (Hardcover): Claude Gnos, Louis-Philippe Rochon Monetary Policy and Financial Stability - A Post-Keynesian Agenda (Hardcover)
Claude Gnos, Louis-Philippe Rochon
R2,305 Discovery Miles 23 050 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book provides an enlightening glimpse into the deep theoretical traditions of post-Keynesian theory whilst also illuminating the richness and uniqueness of post-Keynesian economic policy. The editors have gathered together leading scholars and researchers to push the boundaries of post-Keynesian thinking. They address a number of important issues dealing with wage determination, income distribution and central bank governance. Many of these chapters share a common theme including a criticism of the usefulness of monetary policy in fighting or targeting inflation and the questions this raises for central bank governance. The book also focuses on open economy issues such as capital flows, globalization, FDI and the Washington Consensus. Monetary Policy and Financial Stability is required reading for students, scholars and researchers of economics, and for policymakers seeking rational alternatives to the current neo-classical orthodoxy.

Taxing the Working Poor - The Political Origins and Economic Consequences of Taxing Low Wages (Hardcover): Achim Kemmerling Taxing the Working Poor - The Political Origins and Economic Consequences of Taxing Low Wages (Hardcover)
Achim Kemmerling
R1,962 Discovery Miles 19 620 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In most industrialized countries the tax burden of poor people has increased dramatically over the last few decades. This book analyses both the political origins of this increase and its consequences for the labour market. Achim Kemmerling illustrates that tax-based redistribution and employment are not incompatible, and that the shift away from redistribution has not occurred on grounds of economic efficiency. He goes on to show that a long-term shift from capital to labour taxation has provoked conflicts of interests between workers that have weakened the political cause of tax-based redistribution. This interdisciplinary account of the political economy of taxing low wages explains the historical and structural origins of political tensions between different types of workers and their effects on the performance of labour markets. As such, it will strongly appeal to a wide-ranging audience, including academics, students and researchers with a special interest in political science, political economy, labour markets and the economics of taxation. Practitioners in the field of labour market, social and tax policies interested in the normative consequences of taxation for the labour market will also find the book to be of great interest.

The Causes, Costs and Compensations of Inflation - An Investigation of Three Problems in Monetary Theory (Paperback): William... The Causes, Costs and Compensations of Inflation - An Investigation of Three Problems in Monetary Theory (Paperback)
William Oliver Coleman
R881 Discovery Miles 8 810 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book explores the causes, costs and benefits of inflation. It argues that while the cause of inflation is essentially monetary, the costs and benefits of inflation lie in inflation's distortion of the economy's responses to real shocks. The book begins by securing the Quantity Theory of Money from certain critiques. The theory is defended from the `fiscal theory of the price level' by a refinement of the theory of money demand, and from post Keynesianism by the construction of a theory of the supply of inside money. To cope with the endogeneity of outside money, a simple and tractable neo-Wicksellian theory of inflation is advanced, which is shown to exhibit a striking homology with the Quantity Theory. The author then traces the costliness of inflation, not to any disturbance of the money market, but to the damage inflation does to the bond market's function of sharing out disturbances to consumption caused by technological shocks. The same damage, however, imparts an egalitarian dynamic to the accumulation of wealth, which will not occur without risky inflation. The Causes, Costs and Compensations of Inflation will be of great interest to policy makers, central bankers, researchers, and both post-graduate and undergraduate students in macroeconomics, money and banking.

Neri Salvadori, Pasquale Commendatore, Massimo Tamberi
R2,710 Discovery Miles 27 100 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The authors in this book regard the process of economic expansion as a non-homogeneous and multifaceted phenomenon, which has deeply affected human welfare, and cultural, social and political change. The book is a bridge between the theorists (Rosenstein-Rodan, Lewis, Myrdal, and Hirschmann) who in the post-war period analyzed regional inequalities, structural change and dualism, and the modern literature on economic growth. The latter has emphasized the existence of multiple equilibria, bifurcations and various types of dynamic complexity, and clarified the conditions for the emergence of phenomena such as cumulative causation, path dependence and hysteresis. These are the typical ingredients of structural change, economic development or underdevelopment. Investigating the `mechanisms of economic development', this book will be of great interest to researchers and postgraduate students, especially those oriented towards the study of structural and geographical aspects of economic growth and development.

The Political Economy of Macroeconomic Policy Reform in Latin America - The Distributive and Institutional Context (Paperback):... The Political Economy of Macroeconomic Policy Reform in Latin America - The Distributive and Institutional Context (Paperback)
Eduardo Wiesner
R1,007 Discovery Miles 10 070 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Eduardo Wiesner's book makes an important contribution to the understanding of development by blending together the interdependent issues of (i) macroeconomic performance and volatility, (ii) equity and distributive justice, (iii) fiscal deficits and the redistributive effectiveness of social public expenditures, and (iv) the demand for the `right' institutions and for policy reform in Latin America. It does this by examining recent macroeconomic crises from a political economy perspective, and finds that information is the critical algorithm that links together the demand for macroeconomic stability, macroeconomic performance and, ultimately, distributive justice. This volume is geared toward those interested in the political economy of development and policy reform in general and in Latin America, including academics, policy makers, and the general reader.
