Research Handbook on Austrian Law and Economics (Paperback): Todd J. Zywicki, Peter J. Boettke Research Handbook on Austrian Law and Economics (Paperback)
Todd J. Zywicki, Peter J. Boettke
R1,280 Discovery Miles 12 800 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

The original contributions in this Handbook provide an introduction to the application of Austrian economics to law. The book begins with chapters on the methodology of law and economics before moving on to chapters which discuss key concepts in Austrian economics such as; dynamic competitive processes, spontaneous order, subjective value, entrepreneurship, and the limited nature of individual knowledge - as they relate to topics in evolutionary law and basic law. This book presents contributions from both economists and legal scholars on topics ranging from methodology of analysis and the evolution of contemporary legal practice, to the teachings of basic law. Taken as a whole, this Handbook provides a strong overview of contemporary research in the Austrian school of law and economics. It is an approach that reflects both the examination of how alternative legal arrangements impact economic performance, and how to use the tools of basic economic reasoning to study the operation of legal rules. Scholars working in the fields of law, jurisprudence, economics, and public policy will find this an important resource on the cutting edge of Austrian political economy in application to law and economics. Contributors include: B.L. Benson, P.J. Boettke, D.J. Boudreaux, H.N. Butler, E.R. Claeys, C.J. Coyne, M. DeBow, M.T. Henderson, S. Horwitz, P.G. Klein, M. Krause, T.A. Lambert, P.T. Leeson, J.

Comparative Economic Systems (Hardcover): Paul D. Aligica, Peter J. Boettke Comparative Economic Systems (Hardcover)
Paul D. Aligica, Peter J. Boettke
R8,167 Discovery Miles 81 670 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

The search for alternatives to capitalism and the problem of comparative assessment of the performance of socialist and capitalist systems have inspired one of the richest and most remarkable episodes in the history of economic thought. By the mid 20th century an entire field had emerged, conceptualizing, theorizing, monitoring, and analyzing the largest and most consequential social and economic natural experiment in human history: Real-life Socialism. This research review focuses on the fundamental literature associated with the comparative study of socialist and capitalist systems. It features both a well-rounded inquiry of the modern history of economic thought, as well as a vibrant and critical disentanglement of the role of the economic system from the role of environment and policy decisions, as determinants of economic performance. This review will be an interesting and invaluable research resource for academics and students alike.

Handbook on Contemporary Austrian Economics (Hardcover): Peter J. Boettke Handbook on Contemporary Austrian Economics (Hardcover)
Peter J. Boettke
R2,644 Discovery Miles 26 440 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

The Austrian school of economics was founded in 1871 with the publication of Carl Menger's Principles of Economics. In his book, Menger argued that economic analysis is universally applicable and that the appropriate unit of analysis is man and his choices. These choices, he wrote, are determined by individual subjective preferences and the margin on which decisions are made. The logic of choice, he believed, is the essential building block to the development of a universally valid economic theory. The home of the field moved first to Britain and then on to the US, and at present a diverse mix of intellectual traditions in economic science is obvious in contemporary Austrian school economists. While one could argue that a unique Austrian school of economics operates within the economic profession today, one could also sensibly argue that the label 'Austrian' no longer possesses any substantive meaning. This Handbook looks through the lens of the latest generation of scholars at the main propositions believed by so-called 'Austrians'. Each contributing author addresses key tenets of the school of thought, and outlines its ongoing contribution to economics and to the social sciences. Contributors: S.A. Beaulier, P.J. Boettke, C.J.

The Legacy of Friedrich von Hayek (Hardcover): Peter J. Boettke, Andrew Farrant, Greg Ransom, Gilberto O. Salgado The Legacy of Friedrich von Hayek (Hardcover)
Peter J. Boettke, Andrew Farrant, Greg Ransom, Gilberto O. Salgado
R18,669 Discovery Miles 186 690 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

This major three-volume collection - offered in the centenary year of Hayek's birth - celebrates a lifetime of scholarship and original contributions that cross the disciplines of politics, philosophy and economics. Hayek rose to fame as a young technical economist engaged in debate with Keynes and became infamous in middle age for his harsh critique of socialist planning. For much of the 1950s and 1960s Hayek was ignored as a relic of 19th century economic liberalism as the tide of intellectual and political fashion moved against both his warnings about Keynesian demand management and his critique of socialist planning. Late in life, Hayek was celebrated as a prescient scholar who foresaw the decline in both the Keynesian and socialist systems of economic control. Hayek made major analytical contributions which have yet to be appreciated by either friend or foe. Through this selection of classic articles The Legacy of Friedrich von Hayek attempts to place Hayek's contributions to political economy in a proper perspective.

Money and the Rule of Law - Generality and Predictability in Monetary Institutions (Paperback): Peter J. Boettke, Alexander... Money and the Rule of Law - Generality and Predictability in Monetary Institutions (Paperback)
Peter J. Boettke, Alexander William Salter, Daniel J. Smith
R644 Discovery Miles 6 440 Ships in 10 - 20 work days

Contemporary monetary institutions are flawed at a foundational level. The reigning paradigm in monetary policy holds up constrained discretion as the preferred operating framework for central banks. But no matter how smart or well-intentioned are central bankers, discretionary policy contains information and incentive problems that make macroeconomic stability systematically unlikely. Furthermore, central bank discretion implicitly violates the basic jurisprudential norms of liberal democracy. Drawing on a wide body of scholarship, this volume presents a novel argument in favor of embedding monetary institutions into a rule of law framework. The authors argue for general, predictable rules to provide a sturdier foundation for economic growth and prosperity. A rule of law approach to monetary policy would remedy the flaws that resulted in misguided monetary responses to the 2007-8 financial crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Understanding the case for true monetary rules is the first step toward creating more stable monetary institutions.

market process theories (Hardcover): Peter J. Boettke, David L Prychitko market process theories (Hardcover)

R11,140 Discovery Miles 111 400 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Market process theory is principally concerned with explaining how the market moves towards a state of general economic equilibrium and how production and consumption plans become coordinated. Market Process Theories presents in two volumes the most important articles by leading economists which contribute to an understanding of the processes of economic coordination. Volume I examines classical and neoclassical theories; it suggests that many classical writers can be interpreted as having anticipated a more dynamic disequilibrium analysis, and evaluates Marxian process theory also in this light. Other topics include analyses of price adjustment models, stability and disequilibria and a discussion of the challenge of increasing returns. Volume II deals with criticisms of standard theories such as institutionalism and post Keynesian criticisms. It also offers an exploration of the Swedish influence in the field with papers on the theory of savings and the concept of monetary equilibrium among others. Austrian economics is the subject of the final section, which explores such topics as the meaning of competition, process analysis and price and quantity adjustment.

This volume critically explore and extend Hayek's Nobel Prize-winning work on knowledge and social interconnectedness from the disciplines of law, economics, philosophy, anthropology, political science, and history. Hayek's insights about knowledge become even more important once it is recognized that nothing in the social world occurs in isolation. There is no such thing as a distinct economic, political, or social sphere-they are inextricably intertwined. Given the range of both Hayek's work and the contributing authors' perspectives, the range of topics covered in this volume is extraordinarily wide, running the gamut from immigration, to white supremacy, to ancient agricultural practices, to the nature of what it means to be free.
