Macroeconomics : theory and policy by David C Colander( Book )

150 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in an informal colloquial style, this student-friendly "Principles of Microeconomics" textbook does not sacrifice intellectual depth in its quest for accessibility. The author's primary concern is to instill "economic sensibility" in the student. Colander emphasizes the intellectual and historical context to which the economic models are applied. The seventh edition has been significantly revised to make it simpler, shorter, more organized and more applicable to the real world
The changing face of economics : conversations with cutting edge economists by David C Colander( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives the reader a sense of the modern economics profession and how it is changing. The volume does so with a set of nine interviews with cutting edge economists, followed by interviews with two Nobel Prize winners, Paul Samuelson and Kenneth Arrow, reflecting on the changes that are occurring. What results is a clear picture of today's economics--and it is no longer standard neoclassical economics. The interviews and commentary together demonstrate that economics is currently undergoing a fundamental shift in method and is moving away from traditional neoclassical economics into a dynamic set of new methods and approaches. These new approaches include work in behavioral economics, experimental economics, evolutionary game theory and ecological approaches, complexity and nonlinear dynamics, methodological analysis, and agent-based modeling

The making of an economist, redux by David C Colander( Book )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economists seem to be everywhere in the media these days. But what exactly do today's economists do? What and how are they taught? Updating David Colander and Arjo Klamer's classic The Making of an Economist, this book shows what is happening in elite U.S. economics Ph. D. programs. By examining these programs, Colander gives a view of cutting-edge economics--and a glimpse at its likely future. And by comparing economics education today to the findings of the original book, the new book shows how much--and in what ways--the field has changed over the past two decades. The original book led to a reexamination of graduate education by the profession, and has been essential reading for prospective graduate students. Like its predecessor, The Making of an Economist, Redux is likely to provoke discussion within economics and beyond."--Jacket

An encyclopedia of Keynesian economics by Thomas Cate( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative and comprehensive reference work introduces the reader to the major concepts and leading contributors in the field of Keynesian economics. The book is divided into three general categories: first, concise biographies of economists who have contributed to the debate surrounding the economics of Keynes and the Keynesian Revolution; secondly the basic principles, models and tools used by the participants in this discussion about the economic consequences of The General Theory; and, finally, there are more lengthy entries on specific topics associated with Keynes and the Keynesian Revolution. In this latter section the principal factors which contributed to The General Theory, the economics of Keynes and the rise and apparent decline of Keynesian economics are reviewed
Race, liberalism, and economics( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noneconomists often think that economists' approach to race is almost exclusively one of laissez-faire. Racism, Liberalism, and Economics argues that economists' ideas are more complicated. The book considers economists' support of markets in relation to the challenge of race and race relations and argues that their support of laissez-faire has traditionally been based upon a broader philosophical foundation of liberalism and history: what markets have and have not achieved in the past, and how that past relates to the future. The book discusses the concepts of liberalism and racism, the history and use of these terms, and how that history relates to policy issues. It argues that liberalism is consistent with a wide variety of policies and that the broader philosophical issues are central in choosing policies. The contributors show how the evolution of racist ideas has been a subtle process that is woven into larger movements in the development of scientific thought; economic thinking is embedded in a larger social milieu. Previous discussions of policies toward race have been constrained by that social milieu, and, since World War II, have largely focused on ending legislated and state-sanctioned discrimination. In the past decade, the broader policy debate has moved on to questions about the existence and relative importance of intangible sources of inequality, including market structure, information asymmetries, cumulative processes, and cultural and/or social capital. This book is a product of, and a contribution to, this modern discussion. It is uniquely transdisciplinary, with contributions by and discussions among economists, philosophers, anthropologists, and literature scholars. The volume first examines the early history of work on race by economists and social scientists more generally. It continues by surveying American economists on race and featuring contributions that embody more modern approaches to race within economics. Finally it explores several important policy issues that follow from the discussion. ". . . adds new insights that contribute significantly to the debate on racial economic inequality in the U.S. The differing opinions of the contributors provide the broad perspective needed to examine this extremely complex issue."--James Peoples, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee "There is an immense economic literature on racial discrimination, employing a variety of models and decomposition methods. This volume makes a unique contribution by focusing on the philosophical assumptions at the root of this analysis and by presenting many sides of the very vigorous debate surrounding these controversial issues."--Thomas Maloney, University of Utah "By focusing upon the progress of analytical technique, historians of economic thought have grossly neglected the symbiotic relation of economics to public policy and ideology. This collection of essays offers a most welcome breach of disciplinary apartheid. Seizing upon recent research in the almost forgotten writings about race of Classical economists and their contemporaries, it relates nineteenth-century ideas to current debates about economic discrimination and other manifestations of racism. As the writing is both learned and lively, the book should appeal both to the generally educated reader and to teachers of courses in multiculturalism." --Melvin Reder, Isidore Brown and Gladys J. Brown Professor Emeritus of Urban and Labor Economics, University of Chicago

Beyond microfoundations : post Walrasian macroeconomics by David C Colander( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond Microfoundations discusses the foundations for a Post Walrasian macroeconomics and in doing so carries the work of Robert Clower and Axel Leijonhufvud to the present. This book spells out both why a new approach to macro is needed, and what the essence of the approach will be. This Post Walrasian approach to macro is neither Keynesian nor Classical, both of which have Walrasian foundations, but it offers an approach to macro in which Walrasian economics is turned on its head. Specifically, it rejects the Walrasian ad hoc assumptions of the existence of a unique equilibrium and of simple dynamics. That rejection leads one to a fundamentally different conception of macro than most macroeconomics have implicit in their formal model
The Art of monetary policy by David C Colander( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complexity and the art of public policy : solving society's problems from the bottom up by David C Colander( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complexity science-made possible by modern analytical and computational advances-is changing the way we think about social systems and social theory. Unfortunately, economists' policy models have not kept up and are stuck in either a market fundamentalist or government control narrative. While these standard narratives are useful in some cases, they are damaging in others, directing thinking away from creative, innovative policy solutions. Complexity and the Art of Public Policy outlines a new, more flexible policy narrative, which envisions society as a complex evolving system that
Post Walrasian macroeconomics : beyond the dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model by David C Colander( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Macroeconomics is evolving in an almost dialectic fashion. The latest evolution is the development of a new synthesis that combines insights of new classical, new Keynesian and real business cycle traditions into a dynamic, stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model that serves as a foundation for thinking about macro policy. That new synthesis has opened up the door to a new antithesis, which is being driven by advances in computing power and analytic techniques. This new synthesis is coalescing around developments in complexity theory, automated general to specific econometric modeling, agent-based models, and non-linear and statistical dynamical models. This book thus provides the reader with an introduction to what might be called a Post Walrasian research program that is developing as the antithesis of the Walrasian DSGE synthesis
European economics at a crossroads by John Barkley Rosser( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the European economic change, along with the changes that are happening within the economics profession.

It consists of 11 interviews with a diverse set of innovative European economists from a range of European countries
Complexity hints for economic policy by M Salzano( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This book considers the benefits of complexity, suggesting that economists should become a bit less certain in their policy conclusions. A broader range of models would include agent-based models, which use computational power to deal with specification of models that are far beyond analytic solution; and non-linear dynamic stochastic models, many of which are beyond analytic solution, but whose nature can be discovered by a combination of analytics and computer simulations
Complexity and the history of economic thought : selected papers from the History of Economics Society Conference by History of Economics Society( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The result of looking at the history of economic thought from a complexity perspective not only gives us additional insight into the complexity vision, it also gives insight into the history of economic thought. When that history is viewed from a complexity perspective, the rankings of past economists change. Smith and Hayek move up in the rankings while Ricardo moves down."--Jacket
