Cost-benefit analysis; an introduction by E. J Mishan( Book )

129 editions published between 1971 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition has been thoroughly revised, expanded and updated. In particular, it contains an entirely new section on the Selection of Cost-Benefit Criteria which illuminates the basic rationale of the economic calculus. In addition, the second half of the section on Investment Criteria has been radically altered to produce a more crisp and lucid treatment of the essentials. It contains a general critique of the DPV method with regard to the more recent contributions to this controversial literature. Finally this new section tackles the inter-generation problem involved in long-term projects, a problem that has so far been evaded in the literature on investment criteria
The costs of economic growth by E. J Mishan( Book )

89 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When first published in 1967 this book was based on the conviction that the official figures for growth in real income were compatible with a decline in human welfare. For this edition the text has been revised and updated in the light of global perils and environmental degradation
Welfare economics; ten introductory essays by E. J Mishan( Book )

55 editions published between 1964 and 1975 in 4 languages and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic growth debate : an assessment by E. J Mishan( Book )

29 editions published between 1977 and 1994 in 6 languages and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is not intended to be a new version of my earlier book, The Costs of Economic Growth, although some of the arguments which first appeared in that essay cannot be left out of the present volume without leaving gaps in the development of its thesis. It goes without saying, however, that the present work, like the first, departs from the economist's conventional treatment of social welfare which tends to the conclusion that economic growth would indeed raise social welfare in the absence of those effects which are classified in the literature as 'external diseconomies'
Cost-benefit analysis by E. J Mishan( Book )

30 editions published between 1973 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work discusses the typical questions to which cost-benefit analysis, the key economic tool for analysing problems of social choice, can contribute. It also provides a useful vehicle for understanding the practical value of welfare economics

Technology and growth; the price we pay by E. J Mishan( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author criticises the post war obsession with economic growth, which he regards as neither desirable in itself or necessary as a means of increasing exports. He draws attention to the disparities between social and commercial costs, and severs the conventional link between rising economic opportunity and social welfare

Economic myths and the mythology of economics by E. J Mishan( Book )

25 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986, this book is a polemical study in which the author focuses on the popular myths and misconceptions that colour our understanding of economic issues. Professor Mishan, the internationally recognised economist and expert in the field of resource allocation and cost benefit analysis, undermines the idea that economics is a science. But such are popular myths, he argues, that governments employ battalions of economists in their ongoing attempts to promote economic growth, efficiency and employment. The author challenges the validity and measurement of such concepts as economic efficiency and GNP, and questions the assumption that free competitive markets can operate effectively in a rapidly changing, high-technology society. Professor Mishan foresees in his study further expansion as an unavoidable consequence of continued innovation, while revealing the interconnecting processes by which innovative activity, designed to raise living standards, has begun to erode the moral and psychological foundations of a viable and libertarian society
Thirteen persistent economic fallacies by E. J Mishan( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elements of cost-benefit analysis by E. J Mishan( Book )

29 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<P>This book, which was first published in 1972, is not a collection of case-studies in cost-benefit analysis, of which there had been already several in use employing techniques of varying degrees of sophistication. Nor is it a manual of instruction with particular orientation for less developed counties, such as those produced under the auspices of the U.N. and the O.E.C.D. What this volume does attempt is to introduce the student of economics to the logic and the concepts used in cost-benefit analysis.</P>
