"It is Shackle's view that human conduct is chosen with a view to its consequences. But these are in the future, which cannot be directly known. Expectation will confine itself to what is deemed possible, but this leaves it free to entertain widely diverse and rival hypotheses. How can such skeins of mutually conflicting ideas serve the formation of individual or institutional policy? This is the chief question this book examines."--Provided by publisher
Expectation, enterprise and profit: the theory of the firm by G. L. S Shackle( Book )

42 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Production is a complex system of interdependent activities, necessary to the system as a whole, which itself depends on the continuance of each individual activity that composes it. In such a system, resources must be committed to specific technological purposes long in advance to the ultimate sale of goods to the consumer. The success of such an enterprise system rests on the durability of the instruments it uses. These are so complex, sensitive, and powerful that their huge expense can be recovered only if they can be used for many years. Yet, when the decision is made to invest in them, those years of use are in the future and the conditioning circumstances are unobservable and unknown. The firm in Western economies is the essential institutional means of confronting this problem of uncertainty. "Expectation, Enterprise and Profit: The Theory of the Firm" is concerned with the nature and mode of life of the firm as a means of policy formation in the face of uncertainty. This book offers a concise treatment and excellent analysis of the major concepts studied in a first course in the theory of the firm

29 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Shackle (1903-1992) was best known for his extensive and scholarly work on the theory of the making of business decisions in conditions of uncertainty. He also made important contributions to the theory of rates of interest and showed an exceptional ability to combine theoretical work with a practical understanding of the business world.

A scheme of economic theory by G. L. S Shackle( Book )

27 editions published between 1946 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By their nature and purpose different economic theories make almost opposite assumptions and use entirely different conceptions or aspects of time. These contrasting assumptions, which occur frequently, are essential to the nature of the various theories and cannot therefore be combined into a general theory. Coherence can only be obtained by an explicit scheme in which these theories are ordered to each other. In this book Professor Shackle seeks a single, unified and coherent basis which would serve for all economic theories, particularly in regard to their treatment of time and to the possibility of acquiring the knowledge on which these theories are based. Professor Shackle's examination of these theories and models will be of interest to economists attempting to find coherence in the diversity of economic theory

48 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the purposes of the discussion, expectation is defined as the act of creating imaginary situations, of associating them with named future dates, and of assigning to each of the hypotheses thus formed a place on a scale measuring the degree of belief that a specified course of action will make this hypothesis come true. The text also contains appendices and a detailed index. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in economic theory and methods of dealing with economic uncertainty

14 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains the correspondence between G.L.S. Shackle and Stephen F. Frowen from the time Shackle took up his first post-war academic appointment at the University of Leeds until his death in 1992. The correspondence, partly personal and partly professional, reveals a vital insight into Shackle both as a man and as an outstanding economist. His letters illuminate his thoughts on issues occupying his mind but also show the warmth and tremendous generosity he felt towards his friends. The centenary of Shackle's birth in 2003 seems an appropriate time for the publication of this correspondence."--Jacket
