              Recently, students and scholars have expressed dissatisfaction with the current state of economics, and have called for the re-introduction of historical perspectives into economic thinking. Supporting the idea that fruitful lessons can be drawn from the work of past economists, ...this volume brings together an international cross section of leading economists and historians of economic thought to consider a version of the economy where money, crises and finance play a crucial role. The book draws on the work of economists throughout history to consider afresh themes such as financial and real explanations of economic crises, the role of central banks, and the design of macroeconomic policies. These themes are all central to the work of Maria Cristina Marcuzzo, and the contributions both reflect on and further her research agenda. This book will be of interest to researchers in the history of economic thought, and those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the variety and diversity in approaches to economic ideas throughout history.

              Economic growth has extraordinarily increased the availability of market goods to satisfy people's comfort, but at the same time it has also caused confusion and challenges. Do people possess the skill necessary to choose what is best for them and to draw full enjoyment from econ...omic growth? This book explores this question through an examination of the work of Tibor Scitovsky, the author of The Joyless Economy. Given the recent rise of behavioural economics and happiness economics, this book aims to show how far ahead of his time Scitovsky was in his work on individual welfare (or wellbeing). The book traces the evolution of Scitovsky's original thought, arguing that it has been frequently misunderstood, before undertaking formal analysis in order to demonstrate how far his work anticipated or even went beyond the recent advances in economics. The book also explores Scitovsky's work in the context of Keynes' work on wellbeing, offering a new perspective on welfare in the history of economic thought.

              In the early 1800s, Robert Owen was a mill owner, political figure and an advocate for social reform, and his publications attained considerable circulation. At a similar time, Jeremy Bentham was developing his theories of entrepreneurship and social reform. Their ideas developed... against the backdrop of the Industrial Revolution, and growing social and economic problems in England. This book presents an innovative study of these two social thinkers and reformers, who have rarely, if ever been studied together. This comparative study provides new context both on the social debate taking place during the Industrial Revolution, and on the development of modern social thought, in particular, the relationship between socialism and utilitarianism. This study will be of great relevance to scholars with an interest in the history of economic ideas, the history of entrepreneurship, and social reform in both historical and contemporary context.

              The Idea of History in Constructing Economics
               

              The Idea of History in Constructing Economics (Hardback)

              How scientific is economics? This question has often been framed by analogies and correspondences made between economics and other, seemingly more well-established scientific disciplines, starting with classical mechanics. At the same time economics is likely to be seen in opposi...tion to or in contrast with history, where the reliance upon generalizing rules, thought experiments, and model construction in economics is set against the amassing of particular facts intended to create narratives in history. In this new volume, Turk explores the relationship between economics and history, including the often fraught one between economics and economic history, making the case that economics does in fact require the proper grounding in history that has so often been ignored. This work challenges the attempt to link economics with other, more clearly 'scientific' disciplines as flawed and fundamentally wrongheaded. A key element of this book is its examination of the gaps and associations that exist in, or are seen through, linkages with thermodynamics, classical mechanics , biology, literature, mathematics, philosophy, and sociology. This exploration is frequently undertaken through study of the work of one or more major figures in the history of economic thought, ranging from Quesnay and Smith, through Walras and Max Weber, to Robinson, Krugman, David, and Arthur. Through the possibility of an alternative to the gaps noted in each such comparison, the underlying, necessary connection between economics and history can be brought out. The book concludes by exploring the basis for the positive construction of a historical economics. This book is suited for those who study history of economic thought and philosophy of economics.
