The Classical theory of economic growth by Walter Eltis( Book )

42 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in English and Japanese and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walter Eltis's account of the theories of economic growth and income distribution of Francois Quesnay, Adam Smith, Robert Malthus, David Ricardo and Karl Marx is reprinted here with a substantial new introduction which sets their work in a broader context. He re-states their individual contributions rigorously with extensive references to the original texts. He shows how each developed the work of his predecessors to produce a coherent and distinctive classical theory of growth." "These accounts are complete in themselves. In combination they also offer a general statement of the classical theory of economic growth. In this, only part of the economy creates an investable surplus over costs, and growth depends on the reinvestment of a sufficient fraction of that surplus. Decline is inevitable if luxury consumption or unproductive government expenditure exceeds the surplus that the productive sector generates." "The book includes clear and comprehensible accounts of Quesnay's Tableau economique, Smith's theory of capital accumulation and growth, and Malthus's theories of population and effective demand. It continues with Ricardo's theory of income distribution and Marx's theory of exploitation and his account of how a declining rate of profit will lead to the eventual collapse of capitalism."--Jacket

Britain, Europe, and EMU by Walter Eltis( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British economy appears to be transformed, while in the 1990s other European economies have suffered growing unemployment, rising taxation and increasing industrial unrest. Europe has apparently caught `the British disease'! This book offers a detailed account of the recovery in Britain's economic performance and the deterioration in continental Europe. Walter Eltis argues that problems will arise if Britain moves closer to the failing European economies by joining the European Monetary Union. The book shows in detail how workers' living standards have risen by almost 30 per cent in Britain, while they have stagnated in France and Germany. Britain has become the most attractive base in Europe for inward investment from leading international producers, and this has transformed export performance. Europe's exploitation of the information technology revolution, frustrated by misguided trade policies, has only reached one-third of the US level. EMU entry would entangle Britain in Europe's difficulties and undermine its achievements. Outside EMU, Britain has the opportunity to become, again, one of the world's most prosperous economies. The book concludes with accounts of the modern relevance of Locke on inflation, Ricardo on public debt and Condillac on the creation of competitive market economies

Britain, Europe and EMU by W. A Eltis( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows how the transformation of Britain's economic performance has been based on control of public expenditure, improving competitiveness, co-operative industrial relations and a large favourable contribution from inward investment. In contrast, Europe has suffered from rising unemployment, while misguided trade policies have obstructed the exploitation of the IT revolution. Europe's failures will undermine the EMU project. Britain will do well to keep clear. The book concludes with chapters on the modern relevance of Locke on inflation, Ricardo on public debt and Condillac on the creation of competitive market economies
