This book seeks to explain the financial crisis of the 1990s, explores its consequences, and considers the possibility of worse in the future. The book emphasizes the central role of domestic and international markets in determining the economic growth rate, unemployment levels, and the international payments position of capitalist economies. It then identifies the creation of liquid markets as a major tendency of these domestic and international markets, and as a key obstacle to efficiency and prosperity. Statistical evidence and theoretical analysis support the arguments against liberalizing markets

The Keynes solution : the path to global economic prosperity by Paul Davidson( Book )

26 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's financial crisis has led to a widespread lack of confidence in the laissez faire style of economic policy. In 'The Keynes Solution' author Paul Davidson provides insights into how we got into the crisis--but more importantly how to use Keynes economic philosophy to get out of this mess. John Maynard Keynes was committed to making the market economy work--but our current system has been a dismal failure. Keynes advocated for an interventionalist government role, in cooperation with private initiative, to mitigate the adverse effects of recessions, depressions and booms. His economic policy helped the world out of the great depression and was an important influencer in the thinking behind FDR's new deal policies. In this book Keynesian expert Davidson makes recommendations and details plans for spending, monetary policy, financial market rules and regulation, and wages--all to reverse the effects of our past policies. Keynes renewed influence can be seen everywhere: in Barack Obama's planned stimulus package, for example--and this book explains the basic tenet of Keynesian economics as well as applied solutions to today's critical situation."--Publisher description

This book is essential reading for researchers, practitioners, students and the wider public interested in understanding today's global economic problems"--Back cover

7 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tight now the global economy is on the brink of (another) depression. In Economic Reform Now, some of the world's leading economists issue a strong warning on the grave errors that are threatening to take the global economy over the brink. Richard Koo warns about the dangers of fiscal austerity in times of deleveraging by the private sector. James K. Galbraith illustrates the dangers of deregulation of the financial markets. Paul Davidson explains the concept of objective uncertainty. Jayati Ghosh explores economic integration in the developing world. And Heiner Flassbeck wraps up by highlighting the need for a new international monetary system that better reflects the fundamentals and puts trade back into its proper role of stimulating development. As Europe moves closer to economic disaster, and America fights back a return to double-digit unemployment, this is a must read for policy makers and anyone else concerned about the economy --

Keynes, Keynesians, and Monetarists by Sidney Weintraub( )

5 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New disorders require new polices, says economist Sidney Weintraub. In this book he draws together many of his shorter writings to deal with economic problems that have defied orthodox monetary and fiscal remedies. Weintraub has long been noted for his vigorous criticism of both monetarist and Keynesian schools of thought for their failure to cope with disorders in our economy involving unemployment and inflation. Keynes, Keynesians, and Monetarists contains the original article on TIP, written in collaboration with Henry Wallich, outlining a tax-based incomes policy to combat inflation in an era of unemployment. This essay has been the focus of extended discussion in official quarters, among economics and in the public press
