  • Knowledge, Beliefs and Economicsby R. Arena; A. Festre

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2006; US$ 40.00

    The contributors to this book also suggest the need for a more integrated perspective on the meaning, as well as the role, of knowledge and beliefs in economics in the future.

  • Fatal Tradeoffsby W. Kip Viscusi

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 82.99 US$ 71.37

    Ideally, it would be desirable if we could all adopt a high-minded commitment to a risk-free existence. Unfortunately, such an objective is beyond our reach--politicians who advocate higher taxes rarely get elected and economists who indicate that our resources are limited are often portrayed as purveyors of pessimism. Fatal Tradeoffs culminates... more...

  • Entrepreneurship in Theory and Historyby Youssef Cassis; Ioanna Minoglou

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 145.00

    In the study of entrepreneurship there has been little interaction between economic theory and history. For the first time a single volume combines analyses of leading specialists from both disciplines. It examines the ways theory and historical evidence can be linked, how economic theory can contribute to improving the historical interpretation of... more...

    Entrepreneurship, the creation of new economic entities, is central to the structure and functioning of organizations and economies.

  • Entrepreneurship, Volume 9by Johan Wiklund; Dimo Dimov; Jerome A. Katz; Dean Shepherd

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2006; US$ 117.99

    Among the major ways researchers think about research topics and approaches, the lesson of these ten chapters by many of the ?new breed? of European entrepreneurship researchers is that those values and world-views which have traditionally been the hallmark of the European approach, remain evident as the underpinnings of the ?new breed? approach. In... more...

  • The Myth of Propertyby John Christman

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 134.99 US$ 116.09

    The Myth of Property is the first book-length study to focus directly on the variable and complex structure of ownership. It critically analyzes what it means to own something, and it takes familiar debates about distributive justice and recasts them into discussions of the structure of ownership. The traditional notion of private property assumed... more...

  • Entrepreneurial Economicsby Alexander Tabarrok

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 49.99 US$ 42.99

    This work shows how economists can play a more active role in designing and directing the nation's social institutions. By taking the task of political economy seriously, it reveals the power of economic thought to offer solutions to some of the difficult problems facing society. more...

  • Economics and the Social Sciencesby S. Ioannides; K. Nielsen

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2007; US$ 40.00

    This book is based on the premise that mainstream economics has become excessively specialized and formalized, entering a state of de facto withdrawal from the study of the economy in favour of exercises in applied mathematics. The editors believe that there is much scope for synergies by engaging in an encounter with economics and the other social... more...
