The governmental habit : economic controls from colonial times to the present by Jonathan R. T Hughes( Book )

10 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to what generations of school children have been taught, Americans have used government to control and interfere with economic life ever since the first pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. These unplanned patchwork controls, which today reach into every facet of our lives, may not be as efficient as either economic planning or free market capitalism would be, but they exist and are an integral part of our legal system and social structure. We seem to prefer our own peculiar system of "regulated malfunctioning," the product of a long history stretching back to colonial times. The aim of the brilliant book is to explain how we came to our present methods of control over economic activity. It is the first attempt ever made to trace the history of government control from its colonial beginnings to the present.-- Book Jacket

Ecology and historical materialism by Jonathan Hughes( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the widely-held view that Marxism is unable to deal adequately with environmental problems. Jonathan Hughes considers the nature of environmental problems, and the evaluative perspectives that may be brought to bear on them. He examines Marx's critique of Malthus, his method, and his materialism, interpreting the latter as a recognition of human dependence on nature. Central to the book's argument is an interpretation of the 'development of the productive forces' which takes account of the differing ecological impacts of different productive technologies while remaining consistent with the normative and explanatory roles that this concept plays within Marx's theory. Turning finally to Marx's vision of a society founded on the communist principle 'to each according to his needs', the author concludes that the underlying notion of human need is one whose satisfaction presupposes only a modest and ecologically feasible expansion of productive output
