Economic theory in retrospect by Mark Blaug( Book )

202 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 3,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a history of economic thought from Adam Smith to John Maynard Keynes -- well, actually from David Hume to Milton Friedman -- but it is a history with a difference. Firstly, it is history of economic theory, not of economic doctrines, that is, it is consistently focused on theoretical analysis, undiluted by entertaining historical disgressions or biolographical colouring. Secondly, it includes detailed Reader's Guides to nine of the major texts of economics, namely the works of Smith, Ricardo, Mill, Marx, Marshall, Wicksteed, Wicksell, Walras and Keynes, in the effort to encourage students to become acquainted at first hand with the writings of all the great economists

The methodology of economics, or, How economists explain by Mark Blaug( Book )

102 editions published between 1980 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an examination of the nature of economic explanation. The opening chapters introduce current thinking in the philosophy of science and review the literature on methodology. Professor Blaug then turns to the troublesome question of the logical status of welfare economics, giving the reader an understanding of the outstanding issues in the methodology of economics. This is followed by a series of case studies of leading economic controversies, which shows how controversies in economics may be illuminated by paying attention to questions of methodology. A final chapter draws the strands together and gives the author's view of what is wrong with modern economics. This book is a revised and updated edition of a classic work on the methodology of economics, in which Professor Blaug develops his discussion of the latest developments in macroeconomics, general equilibrium theory and international trade theory. A new section on the rationality postulate is also added

The practice of manpower forecasting; a collection of case studies by Bashir Ahamad( Book )

19 editions published in 1973 in 3 languages and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1960's academics, politicians, administrators and industrialists became convinced of the importance of education for economic development. The forecasting of qualified manpower needs was able to turn this new idea into practice. During the decade hundreds of manpower forecasts were made, and innumerable international conferenceses were held to discuss manpower planning. Popularity of manpower forecasting as an operational tool has continued to increase. At the same time, disillusionment with its assumptions, methods and results is appearing among those concerned with finding an economic rationale for growing educational expenditures. In this book the doubts find practical expression in a language rigorous enough for academics but easily comprehensible to administrators and industrialists. The authors have examined the experience of manpower forecasting in a number of developed and developing countries and concluded that nearly all the exercises have been monumental failures, both conceptually and in practice. However, in the concluding chapter the authors do make their own proposals about how forecasting of qualified manpower needs can be improved. (Mjm)

The utilization of educated manpower in industry; a preliminary report by Mark Blaug( Book )

14 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1964-65, the industrial manpower project made a pilot study of the relationship between the economic performance of british industrial firms and the education of their workers. Through intensive study of five firms, age-earnings profiles for various educational levels were drawn up, with sufficient information to draw up tentative profiles for the united kingdom. The pilot project was considered to be of value since it showed up limited economic theory, scarce and incomplete data, and the need for direct contact with firms. It was concluded that education in britain has a positive rate of return, especially at the middle pre-degree level, firms should stress career planning for their employees, labor costs should increasingly be converted to fixed costs, and flexibility of educational requirements for each occupation should be studied. The government could remedy the lack of personnel data by furnishing firms with standardized record-keeping procedures and occupational and educational classifications. (The document includes tables, charts, and figures, appendixes on classifying educational standards, educational costs, and educational inputs.) The document is available from oliver and boyd, ltd, 39a welbeck street, london W.1, england. (Ly)
