The structure of post-Keynesian economics : the core contributions of the pioneers by Geoffrey Colin Harcourt( )

30 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a major contribution to post-Keynesian thought. With studies of the key pioneers - Keynes himself, Kalecki, Kahn, Goodwin, Kaldor, Joan Robinson, Sraffa and Pasinetti - G.C. Harcourt emphasizes their positive contributions to theories of distribution, pricing, accumulation, endogenous money and growth. The propositions of earlier chapters are brought together in an integrated narrative and interpretation of the major episodes in advanced capitalist economics in the post-war period, leading to a discussion of the relevance of post-Keynesian ideas to both our understanding of economics and to policy-making. The appendices include biographical sketches of the pioneers and analysis of the conceptual core of their discontent with orthodox theories. Drawing on the author's experience of teaching and researching over fifty years, this book will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students interested in alternative approaches to theoretical, applied and policy issues in economics, as well as to teachers and researchers in economics

Some Cambridge controversies in the theory of capital by G. C Harcourt( Book )

54 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capital theory traditionally spans two major compartments of economic theory: the theory of production of both individual products and the total product, and the theory of the distribution of the aggregate product between the different classes of capitalist society. It has always been controversial, partly because the subject matter is difficult and partly because rival ideologies and value systems impinge directly on the subject matter. In the present book the various topics associated with the exchanges between the 'neo-Keynesians' and the 'neo-neoclassicals' are discussed and evaluated. The topics include the measurement of capital, the revival of interest in Irving Fisher's rate of return on investment, the double-switching debate, Sraffa's prelude to a critique of neoclassical theory, and the 'new' theories of the rate of profits in capitalist society

An encyclopedia of Keynesian economics by Thomas Cate( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative and comprehensive reference work introduces the reader to the major concepts and leading contributors in the field of Keynesian economics. The book is divided into three general categories: first, concise biographies of economists who have contributed to the debate surrounding the economics of Keynes and the Keynesian Revolution; secondly the basic principles, models and tools used by the participants in this discussion about the economic consequences of The General Theory; and, finally, there are more lengthy entries on specific topics associated with Keynes and the Keynesian Revolution. In this latter section the principal factors which contributed to The General Theory, the economics of Keynes and the rise and apparent decline of Keynesian economics are reviewed

Economic activity by G. C Harcourt( Book )

26 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic Activity has its origins in a course of lectures given since 1950 to first-year undergraduates at the University of Adelaide. That course was originally given by P.H. Karmel; in later years the other two co-authors inherited it. Little attention was paid to financial factors in the first-year course. A second-year course of macroƠeconomics (given on several occasions by R.H. Wallace) was built upon the first course, and in this the inter-relationships between the financial and production sectors of the economy were considered in detail. The second-year course was set in the context of the particular institutional framework of the Australian economy, and students were introduced to the relevant statistical material. The book draws upon material from both courses, but the discussion of the financial sector is essentially theoretical

21 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Halevi, Geoff Harcourt, Peter Kriesler and J.W. Nevile bring together a collection of their most influential papers on post-Keynesian thought. Their work stresses the importance of the underlying institutional framework, of the economy as a historical process and, therefore, of path determinacy. In addition, their essays suggest the ultimate goal of economics is as a tool to inform policy and make the world a better place, with better being defined by an overriding concern with social justice. Volume I analyses the contributions of Keynes, Harrod and Kalecki"--

Reviews of the hardback edition: 'The volume makes for reading which is both entertaining and thought-provoking...All economists, whether already familiar with the work of Geoff Harcourt and the key figures he discusses or not, would profit from reading this engaging volume.' - Sheila Dow, The Economic Journal 'These essays are both highly informative and very useful pedagogically. But as one has come to expect from Harcourt, they are also delightfully entertaining reading...Harcourt's own virtuosity in this context is on display throughout the essays collected...It warrants a place on every economist's bookshelf.' - Sean Turnell, Economic Record '50 Years a Keynesian and Other Essays serves up a rich menu of who's who and what's what in the Cambridge tradition, all of which Harcourt presents in a sympathetic and readable fashion...It is an invaluable source of intramural information for the historian of economic thought.' - Peter Dooley, History of Economics Newsletter 2003 'The indefatigable Geoff Harcourt has done it again!...Needless to say, every university library should buy it.' - J.E. King, History of Economic Review 'This documents the rich harvest of contributions to economic theory and policy of a remarkable scholar and human being...They are a fine tribute to the Australian Cantabrigian Keynesian to whom many economists, young and no longer so young, are indebted for his benevolence, support, inspiration and mentorship...Economists in general and historians of economic thought working on the Cambridge tradition in particular can be expected to benefit from this collection of essays of a fine scholar and Mensch.' - Heinz D. Kurz, The European Journal of HET 'A beautifully produced volume...These essays provide interesting and sometimes provocative reading for a variety of audiences...This is a book no one interested in the development and the present state of the struggle between classicals and neoclassicals should miss.' - Hansjorg Klausinger, History of Economic Ideas 'These essays contain an incredible wealth of fundamental and illuminating, often subtle points...There are a great many passages of enormous significance... A landmark on the way to a humanist Classical-Keynesian system of political economy' - Heinroch Bortis, Journal of Economic Studies 'A wonderful collection of wide ranging essays from the past decade demonstrating Geoff Harcourt's great knowledge of economic ideas and of major economists. These essays provide us with many insights into the life and work of some major economists and into the nature of the continuing Keynesian revolution.' - Dr Malcolm Sawyer, University of Leeds, UK 'This collection of Geoff Harcourt's recent essays provides a vivid, sympathetic, and intellectually powerful portrait of a remarkable group of scholars who contributed to the creation of the broad post-Keynesian tradition in economics. I can think of no better general introduction to the work and lives of Nicholas Kaldor, Lorie Tarshis, Austin Robinson, Josef Steindl, and, especially, Joan Robinson. Harcourt shares with them the curiosity, iconoclasm, and passion for the public good that are the best part of the Keynesian tradition.' - Duncan K. Foley, New School University, USA 'Harcourt's contributions to economics are many, and this volume offers glimpses of those contributions, along with biographical essays on important economists and reflections on the intellectual battles with mainstream economics in which heterodox economists often find themselves. The essays in this volume give the reader a good sense of why Harcourt is considered one of the most influential Post Keynesians of the last century and remains so today. This book presents a vivid portrait of an important Post Keynesian who has dedicate
