Beyond the invisible hand : groundwork for a new economics by Kaushik Basu( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using analytic tools from mainstream economics, the book challenges some of the precepts and propositions of mainstream economics. It maintains that, by ignoring the role of culture and custom, traditional economics promotes the view that the current system is the only viable one, thereby serving the interests of those who do well by this system. Beyond the Invisible Hand challenges readers to fundamentally rethink the assumptions underlying modern economic thought and proves that a more equitable society is both possible and sustainable, and hence worth striving for

Choice, welfare, and development : a festschrift in honour of Amartya K. Sen by Kaushik Basu( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening essay formalises the concept of 'capabilities' developed by Sen, and is a particularly apt contribution, since it illustrates the possibility of blending developmental concerns with welfare economics. Other subjects tackled include the analysis of a general equilibrium model which relates to the problems of entitlements discussed by Sen in the context of famines; the rationality of choice behaviour; the problem of redistribution; individual decision-making and the symbolic value of actions; an original theorem on dictatorship; issues relating to local community-level co-operation in water allocation and management; a study of primary education in two villages in India and China; the relation between total household resources and intra-household inequality; the vulnerability of households to aggregate shocks; and the issue of mass unemployment

International labor standards : history, theory, and policy options( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the controversial call for international labor standards, seeking to productively further this debate by considering the economic implications and history of these standards. A result of an initiative by Professor Kaushik Basu in his capacity as member of the Expert Group of Development Issues (EGDI) sponsored by the Swedish Foreign Ministry, the contributions are based on discussions at a seminar held in Stockholm in August 2001. They focus on four central questions:How did the labor standards movement evolve in the past, and what can we learn from its history? What do contemporary economic theories tell us about the possible impact of international labor standards? What solid empirical evidence do economists have about the incidence, causes and effects of child labor? What kind of global institutions do we have or need in order to enforce any agreement on labor standards, and what role should the ILO and WTO play? Compiling the best research in the field, this book provides a solid basis for policy decisions, while also serving as a challenging text for students in trade, development, and labor economics
