In defense of monopoly : how market power fosters creative production by Richard B McKenzie( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Defense of Monopoly offers an unconventional but empirically grounded argument in favor of market monopolies. Authors McKenzie and Lee claim that conventional, static models exaggerate the harm done by real-world monopolies, and they show why some degree of monopoly presence is necessary to maximize the improvement of human welfare over time. Inspired by Joseph Schumpeter's suggestion that market imperfections can drive an economy's long-term progress, In Defense of Monopoly defies conventional assumptions to show readers why an economic system's failure to efficiently allocate its resources is actually a necessary precondition for maximizing the system's long-term performance: the perfectly fluid, competitive economy idealized by most economists is decidedly inferior to one characterized by market entry and exit restrictions or costs. An economy is not a board game in which players compete for a limited number of properties, nor is it much like the kind of blackboard games that economists use to develop their monopoly models. As McKenzie and Lee demonstrate, the creation of goods and services in the real world requires not only competition but the prospect of gains beyond a normal competitive rate of return

5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Promises, Performance, and Prospects gathers the key writings of Antonio Martino, Italian statesman and professor of political economics. Informed by a strong tradition of classical liberal thought, these essays explore such current issues of political economy as fiscal responsibility, the threat of statism to individual liberty, and the flight of overtaxed citizens to the underground economy. While Martino's writings are motivated by circumstances in Italy, "his analysis is germane to problems that, to one degree or another, face all advanced democratic societies," according to Dwight Lee, author of the foreword and editor of this volume."--Jacket

Profiles in economics : Adam Smith by Cynthia D Crain( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his favorite spot on a hill overlooking a bay in Scotland in 1730, the boy Adam Smith watched ships arrive from foreign countries to trade cloth and scrap iron for salt and nails. But some of the trade he observed was illegal. The Government permitted foreign countries to buy Scottish products, but did not allow Scots to buy many exported products. As a student and later a professor of moral philosophy at the University of Glasgow, Smith decided that such laws prohibiting free trade between people were wrong. At a time when kings and queens believed that allowing free trade between people caused chaos, and people needed government to protect them, Smith wrote on the importance of individual freedom and trade for promoting social harmony. Based on his influential writings, the humble Scotsman is recognized as the founding father of economics.--From publisher description

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1962, economists James M. Buchanan and Gordon Tullock published The Calculus of Consent, in which they developed the principles of public choice theory. In the fifty years since its publication, the book has defined the field and set the standard for research and analysis. To celebrate a half-century of scholarship in public choice, Dwight Lee has assembled distinguished academics from around the world to reflect on the influence of this monumental publication, and, more broadly, the legacy of its legendary authors. Their essays cover a broad spectrum of topics and approaches, from the impact of public choice theory on foreign policy analysis to personal remembrances of learning from and collaborating with Buchanan and Tullock. The result is a unique collection of insights that celebrate public choice and its visionary proponents, while considering its future directions
