The Great Depression by Lionel Robbins Robbins( Book )

66 editions published between 1934 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the nature and the causes of the 1929 depression, tracing its background and the broad conditions from which the depression emerged. As an influence on economic activity, Robbins sees World War I, and the political changes that followed it, as a series of shifts in the fundamental conditions of demand and supply, to which economic activity had to adapt. The needs of the war had called a huge apparatus of mechanical equipment into being, which the resumption of peace rendered in large part superfluous. The war also disrupted world markets, and its settlement created conditions that aggravated this disruption. Thus, the struggle that was to end nationalist friction in fact gave nationalism new scope. The depression of 1929 and beyond dwarfed all preceding economic disruptions, both in magnitude and in intensity. In 1929 the index of security prices in the United States was in the neighborhood of 200-210; in 1932 it had fallen to 30-40. Commodity prices in general fell by 30 to 40 percent, and in some commodity markets the drop was even more catastrophic. Production in the chief manufacturing countries of the world from 30 to 50 percent, and the value of world trade in 1932 was a third of what it was three years before. Worldwide, something like 30 million people were unemployed. There have been many economic downturns in modern economic history, but never anything to compare with the years of the Great Depression. Few books have conveyed that period with greater clarity and precision than this masterpiece by Lionel Robbins. Murray Weidenbaum's masterful new introduction adds to its contemporary value."--Book cover

The evolution of modern economic theory and other papers on the history of economic thought by Lionel Robbins Robbins( Book )

30 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They have been written at various times in the last thirty-five years; and minute scrutiny, if such were thought to be worthwhile - which of course it is not - might detect some variations of emphasis, particularly perhaps in the implicit valuations of Marshall and his contribution, in the papers on Wicksteed and Schumpeter's History respectively. But in spite of a certain shift of perspective here, the author thought it worthwhile to attempt substantial redrafting. Apart from the correction of obvious inelegances or actual errors, the excision of some duplicating quotations and, in a few cases, the addition of supplementary material and references, the papers are reproduced as originally written. In each instance, the author has given footnote acknowledgements of the place of original publication

Lectures on political economy by Knut Wicksell( Book )

50 editions published between 1934 and 2010 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known as the "economist's economist" for his work on creating a synthetic economic theory, Swedish economist Knut Wicksell was a controversial, but highly influential figure in modern economic thought. His contributions to marginal productivity theory, income distribution and, most notably, his theory of interest would come to have a profound impact upon twentieth century economic theory, not least in the work of John Maynard Keynes. First published in English in 1934 and 1935, this Routledge Revival set is a reissue of his two volume work on political economy, first published in Sweden in 1901 and 1906. This work is aimed at both the professional economist and the advanced student alike, as well as all those interested in the theoretical development of political economy. Volume I concerns itself predominiantly with issues of theory: specifically the theory of value, the theory of production and distribution and the theory of capital accumulation. Volume II deals with theories relating to money, currency and credit.
