Maynard's revenge : the collapse of free market macroeconomics by Lance Taylor( )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is now widely agreed that mainstream macroeconomics is irrelevant and that there is need for a more useful and realistic economic analysis that can provide a better understanding of the ongoing global financial and economic crisis. Lance Taylor's book exposes the unrealistic assumptions of the rational expectations and real business cycle approaches and of mainstream finance theory. It argues that in separating monetary and financial behavior from real behavior, they do not address the ways that consumption, accumulation, and the government play in the workings of the economy
Reconstructing macroeconomics : structuralist proposals and critiques of the mainstream by Lance Taylor( )

Growth and policy in developing countries : a structuralist approach by José Antonio Ocampo( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic structuralists use a broad, systemwide approach to understanding development, and this textbook assumes a structuralist perspective in its investigation of why a host of developing countries have failed to grow at 2 percent or more since 1960. Sensitive to the wide range of factors that affect an economy's strength and stability, the authors identify the problems that have long frustrated growth in many parts of the developing world while suggesting new strategies and policies to help improve standards of living. After a survey of structuralist methods and post-World War II trends of global economic growth, the authors discuss the role that patterns in productivity, production structures, and capital accumulation play in the growth dynamics of developing countries. Next, it outlines the evolution of trade patterns and the effect of the terms of trade on economic performance, especially for countries that depend on commodity exports. The authors acknowledge the structural limits of macroeconomic policy, highlighting the negative effects of financial volatility and certain financial structures while recommending policies to better manage external shocks. These policies are then further developed through a discussion of growth and structural improvements, and are evaluated according to which policy options-macro, industrial, or commercial¿best fit within different kinds of developing economies

The market meets its match : restructuring the economies of Eastern Europe by Alice H Amsden( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With close attention to the history and institutional realities of the region, The Market Meets Its Match explains the failure of the simplistic market medicine administered in the first five years of transition. Merely "getting the prices right"--Lowering wages and raising interest rates and energy prices - won't improve competitiveness, the authors argue, as long as nonlabor costs such as the quality of goods, product design, outmoded technology, and inefficient distribution channels remain problems. Easing these bottlenecks requires long-term capital accumulation and profit maximization. The institutions necessary for such growth have not developed under Eastern Europe's new "pseudo-capitalism," as the authors demonstrate, and "pseudo-privatization," while distributing state property to citizens, has not provided them with the capital and technology they need to succeed
Economic liberalization, distribution, and poverty : Latin America in the 1990s by Lance Taylor( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After neoliberalism : what next for Latin America?( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the past twenty years, economic policy in Latin America has veered toward neoliberalism, or market friendliness. State interventions in the economy have been cut back in many areas, including reductions in fiscal deficits, privatization of public enterprises, reductions of import quotas and tariffs and export subsidies, removal of barriers to foreign capital flow, and increased faith in the private sector and market processes." "This book offers an intellectual and historical background for these policy choices, specifically in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru."--Jacket
Power, employment, and accumulation : social structures in economic theory and practice by Jim Stanford( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an interesting and refreshing collection of economic research conducted in the broadly heterodox tradition. A variety of topical issues are addressed, including labor market inequalities, welfare reform, interest rate policies, international trade, and global financial instability. What unites these diverse essays is their common perspective that social institutions and structures ""matter"" to the performance of economies, and hence should receive more attention from economists. Conventional economic thought focuses unduly on the functioning of so-called ""free-markets."" T
