11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economic Theory and Reality presents Tibor Scitovsky's latest thinking on the relationship between economic theory and economic reality. It focuses in depth on two central themes. The first is Professor Scitovsky's attempt to make economic theory more realistic and thereby more useful; it includes his work on the necessity of asymmetric markets, some market power and righteous behaviour as conditions of a progressive and properly functioning market economy." "The second major theme is the shortcomings of the real-world economy, in particular its failure to maintain macroequilibrium, price stability and full employment. His work on this theme includes examinations of inflexible wages and prices, excessive claims, positional goods, and the impact of second-hand markets on the macroeconomy."--BOOK JACKET

Social limits to growth by Fred Hirsch( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The promise of economic growth which has dominated society for so long has reached an impasse. In his classic analysis, Fred Hirsch argued that the causes of this were essentially social rather than physical. Affluence brings its own problems. As societies become richer, an increasing proportion of the extra goods and services created are not available to everybody. Material affluence does not make for a better society. Fred Hirsch's classic exposition of the social limits to growth manages to connect many of the apparently disparate factors that blight modern life: alienation at work and deteriorating cities as well as inflation and unemployment."--Publisher description
