  • Reading Karl Polanyi for the Twenty-First Centuryby Ayse Bugra; Kaan Agartan

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 115.00

    Using Karl Polanyi's analysis of the separation of politics and the economy, the book argues that the market economy is not a spontaneous process, but a 'political project' realized through institutional change where labour, land, money, and currently knowledge are commodities. The contributions explore the impact of this commodification process. more...

  • Sublime Economyby Jack Amariglio; Joseph W. Childers; Stephen E. Cullenberg

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    Over the last two centuries, artists, critics, philosophers and theorists have contributed significantly to such representations of "the economy" as sublime. It might even be said that much of the emergence of a distinctly "modern" art in the West is inextricably linked to the perception of art?s own autonomy and, therefore, its privileged, mostly... more...

  • Economics Versus Human Rightsby Manuel Couret Branco

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    Human rights and economics are the concepts that have contributed the most to free human kind, the former from fear and the latter from need. Consequently, they should be complementing rather competing. Unfortunately it does not seem to be the case. In this book Manuel Couret Branco shows how mainstream economics discourse is intrinsically opposed... more...

  • The New Economicsby Andrew Simms; David Boyle

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 30.00

    Economics sometimes seems to be stacked against social, environmental and individual well-being. But it doesn't have to be like this. A new approach to economics - deriving as much from Ruskin and Schumacher as from Keynes or Smith - has begun to emerge. Skeptical about money as a measure of success, this new economics turns our assumptions about... more...

  • Advances in Behavioral Economicsby Colin F. Camerer; George Loewenstein; Matthew Rabin

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 77.00 US$ 61.60

    Twenty years ago, behavioral economics did not exist as a field. Most economists were deeply skeptical--even antagonistic--toward the idea of importing insights from psychology into their field. Today, behavioral economics has become virtually mainstream. It is well represented in prominent journals and top economics departments, and behavioral economists,... more...

  • Economics for Humansby Julie A. Nelson

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 16.00

    At its core, an economy is about providing goods and services for human well-being. But many economists and critics preach that an economy is something far different: a cold and heartless system that operates outside of human control. In this impassioned and perceptive work, Julie A. Nelson asks a compelling question: If our economic world is something... more...

  • Predictably Rational?by Richard B. McKenzie

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 59.99

    Mainstream economists everywhere exhibit an "irrational passion for dispassionate rationality." Behavioral economists, and long-time critic of mainstream economics suggests that people in mainstrean economic models "can think like Albert Einstein, store as much memory as IBM's Big Blue, and exercise the will power of Mahatma Gandhi,"... more...

  • Mismeasuring Our Livesby Joseph E. Stiglitz; Amartya Sen; Jean-Paul Fitoussi

    The New Press 2010; US$ 15.99

    In February of 2008, amid the looming global financial crisis, President Nicolas Sarkozy of France asked Nobel Prizewinning economists Joseph Stiglitz and Amartya Sen, along with the distinguished French economist Jean Paul Fitoussi, to establish a commission of leading economists to study whether Gross Domestic Product (GDP)the most widely used measure... more...

  • Milton Friedman on Economicsby Milton Friedman; Gary S. Becker

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 17.00

    On his death in the autumn of 2006, Milton Friedman was lauded as ?the grandmaster of free-market economic theory in the postwar era? by the New York Times and ?the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century? by the Economist . Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1976, Friedman was both a highly respected economist... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 180.00

    This volume brings together a number of wide-ranging, transdisciplinary research articles on the interface between discourse studies and economics.
