Theory of production : a long-period analysis by Heinz D Kurz( Book )

26 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a systematic and comprehensive analytical treatment of the theory of production in a long-period framework. Given the scope of investigation, the methods employed, and the results derived, this study is of interest to all economic theorists. Professors Kurz and Salvadori explore economic systems in which commodities are produced by means of labor, natural resources, and commodified-means of production. They investigate the relationship between production, income distribution, and relative prices for stationary or growing economies characterized by free competition. Specific chapters deal with joint production, fixed capital (including the joint utilization of machines), scarce natural resources (both renewable and exhaustible), heterogeneous labor, the problem of capital, and alternative theories of distribution. The historical origins of the concepts used from the time of the classical economists onward are also discussed in considerable detail

Economic thought : a brief history by Heinz D Kurz( Book )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and German and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this concise yet comprehensive history, Heinz D. Kurz traces the long arc of economic thought from its emergence in ancient Greece to its systematic presentation among the classical thinkers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries to the influential work of scholars such as Paul Samuelson and Kenneth J. Arrow. With a keen eye for how economic insights are acquired, lost, and reborn, Kurz focuses on the dynamic individuals who give old ideas new life and the historical events that provoke different approaches and theories. Over the course of this journey, Kurz explains what Adam Smith meant by the "invisible hand"; how Karl Marx's "law of motion" works in capitalist economies; the roots of the Austrian economists' emphasis on the problems of information, incomplete knowledge, and uncertainty; John Maynard Keynes's principle of effective demand and economic stabilization; and the insights and challenges offered by growth theory, welfare economics, game theory, and more. He concludes with a deft summation of world economists' major concerns today and their critical reactions to world events. -- from dust jacket

The dissemination of economic ideas by Heinz D Kurz( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly illuminating book marks a significant stage in our growing understanding of how the development of national traditions of economic thought has been affected by both internal and external factors. The expert contributors set an explicit agenda for the study of the dissemination of economic ideas across four centuries, acknowledging that the history of dissemination is also a history of the flux of economic beliefs, rendering any generalisation difficult, if not impossible. Topics explored include systems of political economy, European and American interactions, the diffusion of econ
A history of economic theory : essays in honour of Takashi Negishi by Aiko Ikeo( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few economists have been as prolific and wide-ranging as Takashi Negishi. Part of the "Hicksian" generation of Neo-Walrasian general equilibrium theorists, Negishi rose to prominence during the early 1960s with his work on the Neo-Walrasian system. Negishi's signature has been his attempt to extend the multi-market Neo-Walrasian system in several directions to incorporate concerns such as imperfect comptetition, stability, money, trade and unemployment - and, as a consequence, helping to discover and delineate the limits of conventional theory. This collection in honour of Takeshi Negishi analyses his contributions to the history of economic theory. Economists paying tribute within this volume include Neri Salvadori, Laurence Moss, and Joaquim Silvestre

The theory of value and distribution in economics : discussions between Pierangelo Garegnani and Paul Samuelson by Pierangelo Garegnani( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new volume explores two alternative economic theories - the classical theory and the marginalist or neoclassical theory- through a discussion between two eminent economists, Pierangelo Garegnani and Paul Samuelson. The key themes of the volume are the difference in approaches to the explanation of the distribution of income and relative prices, and therefore different approaches to all other economic problems, in particular capital accumulation and economic growth. The book discusses whether there is a 'classical' approach to the theory of value and distribution at the core of economic the

Revisiting classical economics : studies in long-period analysis by Heinz D Kurz( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The financial crisis and the economic crisis that followed triggered a crisis in the subject of economics, as it is typically being taught today especially in macroeconomics and related fields. A renewed interest in earlier authors, especially the classical economists from Adam Smith to David Ricardo and John Maynard Keynes, developed. This book may also be seen as a response to this interest. What can we learn from the authors mentioned, what we could not learn from the mainstream?This volume contains a selection of essays which deepens and widens the understanding of the cla
