  • The Economics of Rationalityby Bill J Gerrard

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 49.95

    The concept of rationality is the heart of modern economics. Neo-classical theory seems unable to proceed without assuming a rational agent seeking to find the optimal means to a well defined end. Yet many find this uncritical treatment of rationality problematic. It takes little account of culture history or creativity and consequently many economists... more...

  • Dilemmas in Economic Theoryby Michael Mandler

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 57.99

    By examining the development of economics in the 20th century, this book argues that the breakthroughs of post WWII general equilibrium theory and its rejection of utilitarianism and marginal productivity have been misunderstood. Mandler maintains that although earlier neoclassicism deserved criticism, current theory does not adequately address the... more...

  • Utility Maximization, Choice and Preferenceby Fuad Aleskerov; Denis Bouyssou; Bernard Monjardet

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 146.76

    The utility maximization paradigm forms the basis of many economic, psychological, cognitive and behavioral models. However, numerous examples have revealed the deficiencies of the concept. This book helps to overcome those deficiencies by taking into account insensitivity of measurement threshold and context of choice. The second edition has been... more...

  • Managing for Valueby S.S. iyer

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2009; US$ 25.00

  • Utility of Gains and Lossesby R. Duncan Luce

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This new monograph presents Dr. Luce's current understanding of the behavioral properties people exhibit (or should exhibit) when they make selections among alternatives and how these properties lead to numerical representations of those preferences. It summarizes, and places in historical perspective, the research Dr. Luce has done on utility theory... more...

  • Creative Actualizationby H. P. McDonald

    Editions Rodopi 2010; US$ 119.00

    This book presents a major new value theory, value as creative actualization. The book takes a radically new approach to values. All potential values, whether artistic, scientific, political, or economic must be creatively actualized in the world. The theory argues for an active view in which value involves creation of novelties and thereby changes... more...

  • The Theory of Value and Distribution in Economicsby Pierangelo Garegnani; Paul Samuelson; Heinz D. Kurz

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    This new volume explores two alternative economic theories – the classical theory and the marginalist or neoclassical theory- through a discussion between two eminent economists, Pierangelo Garegnani and Paul Samuelson. The key themes of the volume are the difference in approaches to the explanation of the distribution of income and relative prices,... more...

  • Against Utility-Based Economicsby Anastasios S. Korkotsides

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Utility-based theory and the fallback choice-theoretic framework are shown to be biased, irremediably flawed and misleading. A radically different theory of value and of consumer behaviour is proposed based on existential interpretations of scarcity, value and self-interest. For self-conscious mortals, only time is scarce. All other is derivative... more...
