  • Classical Macroeconomicsby James C.W. Ahiakpor

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    John Maynard Keynes failed to correctly interpret classic economic concepts, and dismissed the classical explanations and conclusions as being irrelevant to the world in which we live. The trauma of the Great Depression and Keynes's changed definition of economic concepts, aided by Eugen Böhm-Bawerk, have made it difficult for modern economists to... more...

  • Global Economic History: A Very Short Introductionby Robert C. Allen

    OUP Oxford 2011; US$ 7.99

    The gap between the rich and the poor can be vast. Robert C. Allen considers the main factors that contribute to this gap, looking at the interconnections between economic growth, culture, technology, and income distribution.

  • An Economic History of London 1800-1914by Professor Michael Ball; David T Sunderland

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 54.95

    In 1800 London was already the largest city in the world, and over the course of the next century its population grew rapidly, reaching over seven million by 1914. Historians have often depicted London after the Industrial Revolution as an industrial backwater that declined into the mass exploitation of labour through 'sweating', dominated by City... more...

  • Convergence of Productivityby William J. Baumol; Richard R. Nelson; Edward N. Wolff

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 45.00

    This comprehensive study is a collection of original articles that view the current state of knowledge of the convergence hypothesis. The hypothesis asserts that at least since the Second World War, and perhaps for a considerable period before that, the group of industrial countries was growing increasingly homogeneous in terms of levels of productivity,... more...

  • Castles, Battles, and Bombsby Jurgen Brauer; Hubert van Tuyll

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 18.00 US$ 15.30

    Castles, Battles, and Bombs reconsiders key episodes of military history from the point of view of economics—with dramatically insightful results. For example, when looked at as a question of sheer cost, the building of castles in the High Middle Ages seems almost inevitable: though stunningly expensive, a strong castle was far cheaper to... more...

  • Contested Capitalismby Richard W. Carney

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 54.95

    This book examines the political origins of financial institutions across fifteen developed democracies, with focused case studies on the US, France, Japan, Austria, and Germany.

  • Distinguished Women Economistsby Julianne Cicarelli

    ABC-CLIO 2003; US$ 85.00

This volume provides information on 51 remarkable women in the profession. They come from all areas of economics-academia, the business world, public policy-and include those who are currently active as well as 19th-century pioneers... more...
