The meaning of market process : essays in the development of modern Austrian economics by Israel M Kirzner( )

24 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Israel Kirzner is the foremost proponent of the modern Austrian theory of the market process. This theory, while concurring with many of the major policy implications of neo-classical economics, sharply dissents from much of the substance and methodology of neo-classicism. Emphasising the crucial role of ignorance, uncertainty, and the passage of time, Austrian economists criticize the 'tight equilibrium' approach of the mainstream. Yet the Austrians refuse to conclude that the major conclusions of economics are to be rejected. By introducing the role of the entrepreneur and of entrepreneurial discovery (an innovation in which the author's earlier work has played a central role), modern Austrian economists believe it possible to steer a middle course between those who believe the world to be at all times in full co-ordination, and those who believe it to lack any important co-ordinative properties altogether. The Meaning of Market Process offers new substantive insights in support of this Austrian position, and new historical interpretations of how the ideas of the modern Austrians emerged

Ludwig von Mises : the man and his economics by Israel M Kirzner( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludwig von Mises was one of the most influential economists of the twentieth century, and almost certainly the most significant free-market economist. Mises played a major role in the development of the Austrian School of economics, whose exponents - including Nobel laureates like F.A. Hayek, Milton Freidman, and Gary Becker - radically transformed the "dismal science." In this volume, Israel Kirzner follows Mises from his famous Privatseminar in Vienna - which included luminaries such as Hayek and Eric Voegelin - to his reluctant emigration from Geneva and his last years at New York University. Kirzner illuminates the sources and forces behind Mises' intellectual development. In so doing, he provides a useful and understandable overview of the principles of Austrian economics and the laissezfaire economic policies that became associated with it."--Jacket

Essays on capital and interest : an Austrian perspective by Israel M Kirzner( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the three classic essays featured in this book, Professor Kirzner argues that an Austrian approach based on the pure time-preference theory offers an attractive alternative to both the orthodox neoclassical and the heterodox Sraffian approaches to economics. The author takes a subjectivist point of view with all capital and interest phenomenon traced to individual multiperiod plans. Capital is seen, in this perspective, not as an objective mass of tools and equipment, but as the interim state in which inter-locking multiperiod plans have manifested themselves at a particular point. This consistent subjectivism makes it possible to present the pure time (Fetter-Mises) preference theory of interest in understandable terms
Early Austrian economics : new importance for the consumer by Israel M Kirzner( )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carl Menger (1840-1921), and Eugen von Bohm-Bawerk (1851-1914), working in Vienna in the late nineteenth century, rejected the classical and Marxian ideas that value can be measured objectively. They insisted that the subjective preferences of consumers determine value; this shifted the attention of economic analysis from productive power to consumer demand. This shift led to keen new insights, including the idea that the marginal utility of goods, i.e., the usefulness to a consumer of one more (or less) unit of an item, determines its price. Other insights of the early Austrians include an explanation of why interest is necessary; how the price system allocates economic resources; how to determine cause vs. effect in economic affairs; and how to distinguish between the means (activities) and ends (goals) of economic activity

Der ökonomische Blickwinkel. Eine Abhandlung zur Geschichte des ökonomischen Denkens. Hrsg. und übersetzt von Hardy Bouillon by Israel M Kirzner( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der ökonomische Blickwinkel ist die Erstübersetzung von Israel Kirzners Buch The Economic Point of View. Kirzner, ein Schüler Ludwig von Mises', ist hierzulande vor allem als Ökonom bekannt, der bahnbrechende Beiträge zur Rolle des Unternehmers im Markt geleistet hat. In Der ökonomische Blickwinkel geht er einer ganz anderen Frage nach, der nach dem Forschungsgegenstand der Ökonomie. Für Kirzner ist klar, dass eine Antwort auf die Frage nach dem Selbstverständnis der Ökonomie, nach dem ökonomischen Blickwinkel, methodologische und historische Reflektionen voraussetzt. So ist sein Buch sowohl eine methodologische Analyse als auch ein historischer Abriss der zahlreichen Definitionen von Ökonomie und dem, womit diese befasst ist oder befasst zu sein glaubt. -- Nach Wettbewerb und Unternehmertum (Competition and Entrepreneurship) und Unternehmer und Marktdynamik (Perception, Opportunity, and Profit) ist Der ökonomische Blickwinkel das dritte Buch Kirzners, das auch in deutscher Sprache vorliegt. / »The Economic Point of View« -- »Der ökonomische Blickwinkel« is the first German translation of Israel Kirzner's book The Economic Point of View. An Essay in the History of Economic Thought, in which the author provides a definition of the scope and meaning of economics
