Institutional economics : theory, method, policy by Marc R Tool ( Book )
18 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume appraises, refines, and extends the institutionalist's evolutionary theory of political economy in six different areas of inquiry: (a) the provision of a fresh and comparative overview of institutional economics in general; (b) the presentation and refinement of pragmatic methods of inquiry; (c) the exploration of extensions and clarifications of instrumental value theory; (d) the distillation of an emergent institutionalist theory of labor markets; (e) the explication of a culture-based theory of economic development; and (f) the formulation of an analytical design that provides direction for institutional policy making. Institutional Economics: Theory, Method, Policy appears at an especially opportune time, when there is widespread and accumulating analytical dissatisfaction with received economic doctrine. The traditional neoclassical and Marxist views of how to explain, order, and operate a political economy are now in question throughout the world. Appeals are being made for more relevant and pragmatic, less doctrinaire and dogmatic, approaches to economic inquiry and problem solving. This volume provides fresh theoretical underpinnings for such problem solving efforts

Institutional economics and the theory of social value : essays in honor of Marc R. Tool by Françoise Dastur ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The starting point of the essays in Institutional Economics and the Theory of Social Value is Marc Tool's seminal work in the field: the essays thus honor Tool by extending his analysis and ideas. The essays are loosely grouped under three headings: the theory of social value; the instrumental value principle; and extensions of Toolian themes. Many of the issues discussed are fundamentally important to institutional economics as well as to the social sciences in general. Among them are social value, valuation, instrumentalism, pragmatism, post-modernism, and critical rhetoric. The book balances theoretical essays with ones that deal with actual problems in economics and policy

Value theory and economic progress : the institutional economics of J. Fagg Foster by Marc R Tool ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
J. Fagg Foster (1907-1985) was one of the most significant creators of institutionalist economic theory in the twentieth century. He wrote and taught in the American intellectual tradition of Thorstein Weblen, John R. Commons, John Dewey and Clarence E. Ayres. This tradition shares purpose and philosophy with the European contributors, Gunnar Myrdal and K. William Kapp. Because little of Foster's scholarly work was formally published, professional knowledge of his extraordinary contribution is quite limited beyond the circle of his students and colleagues. Value Theory and Economic Progress attempts to correct that deficiency by providing an extended characterization of this missing and crucial component of the development of American heterodox economic thought. Its purpose is to demonstrate the timely relevance and significance of this model of inquiry in political economy. In addition, this volume explains that contemporary problem solving means changing `what is' into `what ought to be' through institutional adjustments; such a demonstration is at the heart of Foster's contribution to institutional thought
Institutional analysis and economic policy by Marc R Tool ( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a book on economic policy that takes the role of democracy seriously. It challenges the conventional wisdom espoused by leaders of both major political parties in the US, and increasingly by leaders of other nations, that markets and not democratic policy formation should determine the legitimate role of private interests in the conduct of the economy. The authors of the essays in this book reject the mainstream neoclassical view that the market should rule "über alles." Examining the problems existing in a number of crucial areas of economic policy, they demonstrate the inadequacy of orthodox view that markets can generate economic welfare without the guidance of democratically formulated economic policies. Using the principles of the original institutional economics (OIE), they fashion long-term strategies for the formation of economic policies that can accommodate institutional changes necessary to meet the ever-changing circumstances faced by nations in a global economy. The editors, Tool and Bush, have assembled a group of scholars with special expertise in the problems they address. In each instance they offer original insights into issues that many in the mainstream had thought were settled. The analysis and policy proposals of the essays in this book do not defer to the dominant vested interests in industry, academe, or government. The views expressed are fresh, candid, and break out of the ideological boxes that have for so long encapsulated public debates on economic policies
