Jurgen G. Backhaus
R2,108 Discovery Miles 21 080 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Hayek's theory of cultural evolution has always generated controversy. Interest in Hayek's theory, and others' analysis and criticism of it, has been rising of late. This volume urges a reconsideration of Hayeks' theory of evolution and aims to explore the relevance of Hayek's theory for its own sake and for evolutionary economics more generally. Entrepreneurship, Money and Coordination includes chapters written by leading academics on: * Hayek's theory of the mind * the evolution of legal rules * Hayek and the evolution of designed institutions: a critical assessment * entrepreneurship in the theory of cultural evolution * Hayek's `free money movement' and the evolution of monetary order in historical perspective * the evolution and cultural function of money. This book will be of particular interest to academics and scholars of Austrian and evolutionary economics, as well as economic theorists.

Evolutionary Economic Thought - European Contributions and Concepts (Hardcover): Jurgen G. Backhaus Evolutionary Economic Thought - European Contributions and Concepts (Hardcover)
Jurgen G. Backhaus
R2,069 Discovery Miles 20 690 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Evolutionary Economic Thought explores the theoretical roots of the evolutionary approach, and in so doing, demonstrates how it fits squarely into the theoretical mainstream. Focusing on the institutions of evolutionary change and the processes - such as competition - that generate change, this book takes account of important European contributions to the discipline, hitherto overshadowed by the American paradigm. As such, the book serves to broaden the current discourse. Whilst evolutionary economics itself is a well-researched and widely documented field, this book will be credited with establishing a history of evolutionary economic thought. The contributors attempt to answer an important set of questions on how economies develop, using the theories of social economists such as Hobson, Marx, Menger, Schmoller, Sombart and Wagner. Historical, empirical, and theoretical perspectives on evolutionary economic change are also drawn upon. This highly original book will appeal to those with an interest in evolutionary economics, economic development and the history of economic thought.

Handbook of Public Finance (Hardcover, 2004 ed.): Jurgen G. Backhaus, Richard E. Wagner Handbook of Public Finance (Hardcover, 2004 ed.)
Jurgen G. Backhaus, Richard E. Wagner
R5,151 R4,228 Discovery Miles 42 280 Save R923 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Handbook of Public Finance provides a definitive source, reference, and text for the field of public finance. In 18 chapters it surveys the state of the art - the tradition and breadth of the field but also its current status and recent developments. The Handbook's intellectual foundation and orientation is truly multidisciplinary. Throughout its examination of the standard material of public finance, it explores the connections between that material and such neighboring fields as political science, sociology, law, and public administration.

The editors and contributors to the Handbook are distinguished scholars who write clearly and accessibly about the political economy of government budgets and their policy implications. To address the needs and interests of international scholars, they place European issues next to the American agenda and give attention to the issues of transformation in Central Eastern Europe and elsewhere.

Navies and State Formation - The Schumpeter Hypothesis Revisited and Reflected (Paperback): Jurgen G. Backhaus Navies and State Formation - The Schumpeter Hypothesis Revisited and Reflected (Paperback)
Jurgen G. Backhaus
R1,352 Discovery Miles 13 520 Special order

If the power to tax stems from the need to finance standing armies, as Schumpeter claims, what about the more expensive navies? The answer demonstrated in this book is that Schumpeter was right. We cannot document a single case of a tax financed navy. This work has been generously supported by the Kyriazis family foundation. (Series: Wirtschaft: Forschung und Wissenschaft - Vol. 27) *** "The purpose of this work is to examine the economic theories of Joseph Alois Schumpeter (1883-1950), who proposed that 'creative destruction' of older economic models is necessary for economic progress. . . . will prove of great interest to students of the rise of permanent military institutions." - The NYMAS Review, No. 57, Winter-Spring 2014

The Reformation - As a Pre-condition for Modern Capitalism (Paperback): Jurgen G. Backhaus The Reformation - As a Pre-condition for Modern Capitalism (Paperback)
Jurgen G. Backhaus
R807 Discovery Miles 8 070 Special order

The Reformation is generally discussed as a spiritual or cultural phenomenon. Recently, religious reform has surfaced in the context of integration policy, but the lack of a reformation in Islam has caused difficulty when integrating Islamic immigrants into modern Western society. This book brings religion to the forefront as a necessary element of society, and analyzes how different religions were adapted to form the social fabric of modern capitalism.

Joseph Alois Schumpeter - Entrepreneurship, Style and Vision (Hardcover, 2003 ed.): Jurgen G. Backhaus Joseph Alois Schumpeter - Entrepreneurship, Style and Vision (Hardcover, 2003 ed.)
Jurgen G. Backhaus
R3,587 R3,393 Discovery Miles 33 930 Save R194 (5%) Special order

Joseph Alois Schumpeter is arguably the most important economist of the 20th century. Most readers are familiar with his Theory of Economic Development and his classic Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy. Less well-known are his seminal works published before he left Europe for the United States in 1942. In particular for the first time the missing Chapter Seven of his Theory of Economic Development has been published in this volume. It tries to put Economic Development into the broader context of culture, law and policy. Many of his earlier writings display a similar integrative approach and are therefore often treated as sociological writings. As Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy shows, he did not dissociate the different social sciences in his own mind but rather strove to keep the unity of the social sciences. Entrepreneurship, style and vision are the unifying concepts of his work.

Europe in Progress (German, Paperback, 1995 ed.): Sabine Urban, Jurgen G. Backhaus Europe in Progress (German, Paperback, 1995 ed.)
Sabine Urban, Jurgen G. Backhaus
R1,017 Discovery Miles 10 170 Special order

Introduction Europe in Progress, Model and Facts is the second volume in the series Europe's Economic Future launched in 1994. It is in keeping with the will expressed by the University Robert Schuman and implemented by CESAG, the research centre of IECS Strasburg, to observe and to analyse European reality; not through idealized models or abstract diagrams but out in the real world, close to the lives and actions of Europe's citizens and companies. This research, undertaken by leading academic figures of different countries, offers a wide spectrum of reality in evolution and Europe's characteristic diversity. This diversity appears to be both a blessing and a handicap because the adaptation process linked to European integration and the definition of global competitive strategies demands unequal efforts. It is therefore understandable that uncertainties arise, that tensions appear amongst partners who, in some areas of social economic or financial life, stand together but refuse a constraining solidarity in other areas. However one thing is certain: Europe's construction progresses step by step. This deep-seated reality is enhanced by cross-border investments, by the setting up of common rules and standards, by the creation of collective, common instruments, by factor mobility, by intensified exchanges of goods and services, by improved understanding of behaviours and cultures and by learning from others. Europe, with twelve members or more, has a socio-economic life "per se" which, with the adjustment of varying difficulties, is on the road to improvement.

Fiscal Sociology - Public Auditing (Paperback): Jurgen G. Backhaus Fiscal Sociology - Public Auditing (Paperback)
Jurgen G. Backhaus
R752 Discovery Miles 7 520 Special order

From the point of view of public finance research, this book is a little quaint. A typical court of audit judges only what is put before it. In these essays it is argued that the judge should search for alternative actions that could have been taken and change thereby the records presented. This is different in that traditional public finance talks about some unknown entity whose well being a benign president should implement. We are not particularly impressed with this model. Our way of reasoning is that we want to talk about alternatives.

Codetermination - A Discussion of Different Approaches (Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1989): Hans G... Codetermination - A Discussion of Different Approaches (Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1989)
Hans G Nutzinger, Jurgen G. Backhaus
R1,697 Discovery Miles 16 970 Special order

Traditional firm structures are currently undergoing drastic change. The changes that the traditional firm is currently undergoing will permit active involvement of labor at all levels of the firm's decision-making process, offer workers substantial job security, protect workers' firm specific investment against excessive losses, guarantee workers at least market rates of return on their human capital and will allow labor a major role in shaping the firm's work rules and the production environment. These changes pose an enormous challenge to practitioners and policy-makers alike. The difficulties of appropriately modeling the new codetermined firms are also formidable. The present collection of papers furnishes building blocks for a better analysis of complex firm structures. The present effort is designed to be a "workbook," a point of departure on which new research and teaching is to be built, and a work of reference on what has already been accomplished.
