The classical economists revisited by D. P O'Brien( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Classical Economists Revisited conveys the extent, diversity, and richness of the literature of economics produced in the period extending from David Hume's Essays of 1752 to the final contributions of Fawcett and Cairnes in the 1870s. D.P. O'Brien has thoroughly updated, rewritten, and expanded the influential work he first published in 1975, The Classical Economists. In particular, he sets out to make clear the shaping of a comprehensive vision of the working of an open economy, building on the great work of Adam Smith in the Wealth of Nations, a development that was substantially affected by the contributions of David Ricardo. He shows that the Classical literature was in fact the work of a host of thinkers from a wide range of backgrounds."

Thomas Joplin and classical macroeconomics : a reappraisal of classical monetary thought by D. P O'Brien( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'This marvellous book is more than a re-evaluation of the work of a highly colourful monetary theorist, reformer and energetic controversialist. Other major landmarks, such as Robbins' Torrens and O'Brien's own McCulloch, have produced significant changes in perceptions of their subjects. But this highly readable book places virtually the whole of classical monetary and macroeconomic thought in a new perspective. Not only is Joplin shown to have been highly original in his development of concepts - a multiplier and a reciprocal demand approach to trade are just two examples - but his ability to bring new concepts to bear on the most important practical issues of his time is nothing short of staggering. Joplin argued that the basis of nineteenth century monetary legislation (resulting in the 1844 Bank Act) was fundamentally flawed, largely because of its focus (along with later commentators) on the Bank of England note issue rather than money supply originating outside the Bank of England. The author provides econometric tests of Joplin's theory and shows that Joplin's macroeconomic analysis can be formulated as a sophisticated dynamic Keynesian model of an open economy. Denis O'Brien has brought to his subject a phenomenal range and depth of knowledge of economic literature in order to produce a major landmark in the history of economic analysis.'"--Jacket

History of economic thought as an intellectual discipline by D. P O'Brien( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book restates the importance of the study of the history of ideas, in the context of the writings of economists. After an initial statement, a case study involving five methodological detours is considered. This is followed by an analysis of a flawed attempt to remedy the manifest deficiencies of the static general equilibrium model." "Illustrated by discussions of methodological and historical issues, the book will be essential reading for economists, researchers and students of the history of economic thought."--BOOK JACKET

Taxation and the promotion of human happiness : an essay by George Warde Norman( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Warde Norman was a Director of the Bank of England from 1821 to 1872, a key figure behind the Bank Charter Act of 1844, and one of the founders of the Political Economy Club. In 1821 G.W. Norman began an essay on taxation as part of the utilitarian programme. His vision was of increased human happiness through a wholesale reform of the revenue system founded upon direct taxation in the form of a comprehensive property tax. He continued to work on the essay over many years, never losing his faith in the utilitarian ideal or his belief in the property tax solution as the key to fiscal happiness. This book represents G.W. Norman's final thoughts, themselves a manifestation of a significant element in the development of nineteenth century policy and institutions. This edition of a hitherto unknown work demonstrates the importance of utilitarianism to liberal thinking on taxation. As such, this unique book will appeal to specialists in the history of economic thought and to historians, especially those with an interest in the history of public finance, an area in which G.W. Norman's contribution has been almost entirely overlooked. Providing a new and previously unexploited source, it should also prove to be a fascinating read for postgraduates working in these fields
