              This new volume examines monetary separation and the history of monetary arrangements in the North and Baltic Seas region, from the Hanseatic League onwards. This analysis is done with a view to assessing evolution of monetary arrangements from a new monetary economics perspectiv...e. In pre-industrial Europe, in addition to a southern trading zone in the Mediterranean, a northern trading zone emerged from the Low Countries to the Baltic, and down the Bay of Biscay to the Iberian peninsula. Trade requires appropriate monetary arrangements, some unit of account and, at least, one medium of exchange. Using theories from new monetary economics , the book explores how the units of account and their media of exchange evolved as social conventions, and offers new insight into the separation between the two. This highly original new analysis will be of interest to an international audience of scholars and students, including those with an interest in economic history, evolutionary economics and new monetary economics.

              The ongoing economic crisis has revealed fundamental problems both in our economic system and the discipline which analyses it. This book presents a series of contrasting but complementary approaches in economic theory in order to offer a critical toolkit for examining the modern... capitalist economy. The global economic crisis may have changed the world in which we live, but not the fundamental tenets of the discipline. Each chapter reviews a methodological or theoretical approach and discusses new directions for the field. Topics covered include the methodology of economics in the face of the crisis, the comparative and historical approach to studying the crisis, and new proposals for economic policy. The book challenges the way in which economic theory is currently taught, and offers viable alternatives for the future.

              Henry A. Abbati: Keynes' Forgotten Precursor: Selected Writings (Paperback)

              Henry A. Abbati was not an economist by profession. After retiring from business, in 1924 he published his first book, The Unclaimed Wealth: How Money Stops Production in which he expounded his theory of 'effective demand' (terminology of his own) and its differences with respect... to current theories on economic fluctuations. He was advocating public intervention in the economy in the crisis. His second book, The Final Buyer marshalled his criticisms of current theories and further clarified salient aspects of his theory, such as 'saving' and its various definitions, the working of the banking system, the interest rate and the role of public works as a means of reducing unemployment. Later work in the 30s and 40s looked at full employment, reflections on the economic crisis and further analysis of the concept of unclaimed wealth. In many ways Abbati's work in the twenties was an important precursor to Keynes' Treatise on Money, though despite being admired by Robertson and indeed Keynes, his work is today largely unknown and entirely ignored by the numerous authors who have examined the debate of the twenties and thirties on the crises and business cycles and by academic opinion in general. In this book, Di Gaspare restores Abbati's position as a pioneer in macroeconomic theory with a selection of his writings and a far reaching introduction to his contribution to the history of economic thought.

              Essays on Classical and Marxian Political Economy: Collected Essays IV
               

              Essays on Classical and Marxian Political Economy: Collected Essays IV (Paperback)

              By Hollander, Samuel

              Samuel Hollander's work has been provoking debate for over four decades. This book brings together key contributions of recent years, in addition to some brand new pieces. The essays are introduced by a Preface in which Hollander reflects on his past work and reactions to it. Hig...hlights include two issues of particular current relevance. Conspicuous is an extensive chapter regarding Adam Smith's often neglected arguments for government intervention in the economy to correct market failures, and his critical view of the business class as an anti-social force. Important economists considered in relation to Adam Smith's position on the role of the state include Jeremy Bentham and the Scottish-Canadian John Rae. Similarly of high present-day interest is a re-examination of Karl Marx's theory of exploitation, or the notion of profits as embezzlement, demonstrating Marx's effective abandonment of this perspective in the case of the small active businessman as distinct from the major joint-stock corporation. Other papers demonstrate the close intellectual relationship between David Ricardo and Thomas Robert Malthus; the extensive common ground between the British school and the French under the leadership of Jean-Baptiste Say; the failure of a so-called anti-Ricardian opposition in Britain represented by Samuel Bailey; and the denial of a sharp discontinuity between classical and later neo-classical economics. Finally, several biographical essays are included as well as an extension of the autobiographical account appearing in Collected Essays II.

              The aim of this work is to make available to English-language readers a translation of Jean-Baptiste Say's main texts on money and banking which were not at present accessible in English. The work includes chapters from his books taking into account the variants between the diffe...rent editions, articles and hitherto unpublished manuscripts. Comprehension of these different texts is facilitated by an introduction designed to place them in their context and by a chronological table giving the main events of Say's life and editorial activity in parallel with the main political, economic and monetary events of the time.

              Keynes and Friedman on Laissez-Faire and Planning: 'Where to draw the line?' (Paperback)

              The 2008 crisis has revived debates on the relevance of laissez-faire, and thus on the role of the State in a modern economy. This volume offers a new exploration of the writings of Keynes and Friedman on this topic, highlighting not only the clear points of opposition between th...em, but also the places in which their concerns where shared. This volume argues that the parallel currently made with the 1929 financial crisis and the way the latter turned into the Great Depression sheds new light on the proper economic policy to be conducted in both the short- and the long-run in a monetary economy. In light of the recent revival in appreciation for Keynes' ideas, Rivot investigates what both Keynes and Friedman had to say on key issues, including their respective interpretations of both the 1929 crisis and the Great Depression, their advocacy of the proper employment policy, and the theoretical underpinnings of the latter. The book asks which lessons should be learnt from the Thirties? And what is the relevance of Keynes' and Friedman's respective pleas for today?

              The German Historical School and European Economic Thought
               

              The German Historical School and European Economic Thought (Hardback)

              The financial crisis of 2008 has revived interest in economic scholarship from a historical perspective. The most in depth studies of the relationship between economics and history can be found in the work of the so-called German Historical School (GHS). The influence of the GHS ...in the USA and Britain has been well documented, but far less has been written on the rest of Europe. This volume studies the interconnection between economic thought and economic policy from the mid-nineteenth century to the interwar period. It examines how the School's ideas spread and was interpreted in different European countries between 1850 and 1930, analysing its legacies in these countries. In doing so, the book is able to trace the interconnection between economic thought and economic policy, adding new voices to the debate on the diffusion of ideas and flow of knowledge. This book identifies issues related to topics such as nationalism and cosmopolitanism in the history of ideas and clarifies themes in policy making that are still currently debated. These include monetary policy and benefits of free trade for all parties involved in international exchanges. This book will be of a great interest to those who study history of economic thought, economic theory and political economy.

              The Political and Economic Thought of the Young Keynes: Liberalism, Markets and Empire (Hardback)

              This book takes a fresh and much-needed look at the political and economic thought of the young J. M. Keynes. It explores the ways in which the early political opinions of the young Keynes fuelled his initial engagement with economic issues, and subsequently shaped his early conc...eption of the importance and desirability of state involvement in the financial markets of the British Empire. The book's main themes comprise: the reconstruction, by way of archival evidence, of the young Keynes's political ideas and ideals; an exploration of the imperial dimension of Keynes's early liberalism; the political interests that, by way of a winding path, led Keynes to academic economics; the reconstruction of the context of Keynes's early economic thought on Indian currency; the way in which Keynes, prior to the First World War, came to conceive of the role of the British state in the shaping of private markets, thereby providing an Edwardian precedent for his subsequent thought on state intervention. The main aims of the book are to show that politics, as well as philosophy, formed a vital part of Keynes's early intellectual apprenticeship, and secondly to reconstruct Keynes's early ideas of state involvement in the market. The book provides a uniquely in-depth assessment of Keynes's understanding of the relationship between India Office financial policy and British large scale investments in India. It also identifies the involvement of the British state in the shaping of world financial markets prior to World War I, as a key context of the development of Keynesian ideas of state intervention in the economy.
