William Jaffé's Essays on Walras by William Jaffé( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Dr Walker brings together Dr William Jaffé's essays on the important and interesting work of Léon Walras, the founder of general equilibrium analysis. The essays were selected on the basis of their importance to the Walrasian literature, in that they provide information on Walras's intellectual biography with which we would otherwise be unfamiliar or they make a contribution to the interpretation and analysis of his ideas. One of Jaffé's main interests was to explain the genesis of Walras's work, which he did by examining Walras's biography. Using a wide variety of sources, Jaffé pieced together an account of these matters in the belief that biography is essential for understanding the origins and development of a scientist's work. Jaffé corrected what he regarded as errors of interpretation of Walras by other writers, evaluated Walras's contributions, and indicated his significance for modern economics. The essays are informative, illuminating, and - as a result of Jaffé's scholarly and literary craftsmanship - aesthetically satisfying
Walras's market models by Donald A Walker( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walras's Market Models describes and evaluates Leon Walras's models of competitive markets. The book differs from previous examinations of his work by identifying his career phases and the associated general equilibrium models, which are shown to be very different in character. During his mature phase of theoretical activity, Walras was concerned with a competitive economy that passes through a stage of disequilibrium in the production and sales of commodities. In his last phase of theoretical activity, he tried to construct a model in which hiring, production, sales, consumption, and saving would be suspended until an equilibrium of prices was found. The defective structure of that model and its fragmentary nature prevented it from becoming a functioning system. Until now, the models of the two phases of Walras's theoretical work have not been subjected to an accurate analysis and evaluation. Walras's Market Models fills this gap
Léon Walras' Elements of theoretical economics : or The theory of social wealth by Léon Walras( )

18 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his fourth edition of Elements d'economie politique pure (1900), Leon Walras introduced the device of written pledges to eliminate path dependency: sellers of products and services write out commitments to supply certain quantities at suggested prices with no commodities actually produced and supplied until a set of prices is found at which supply and demand are equal simultaneously in every market. This brought about very serious alterations to the character of the book. Unfortunately, these changes resulted in an incomplete, internally contradictory, and occasionally incoherent text. This translation, therefore, by two leading scholars of Leon Walras' work, Donald Walker and Jan van Daal, revisits the third edition of this seminal work, including Walras' brilliant explanation of his comprehensive model, with all its richness derived from reality. Growing research into Walras' work indicates that it was this third edition that contained his best theoretical research and a translation of this edition of the book is now a necessity

The vision of Léon Walras : markets interacting in an equilibrium system by Donald A Walker( )

10 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leon Walras (1834-1910) transformed economics from a literary discipline into a mathematical, deterministic science. For the first time, Walras expressed rigorously the view that all markets are related, and that their relationships can be described and analyzed mathematically. These interrelated markets tend toward a "general equilibrium" position, undergoing a constant interactive adjustment process that Walras called a "tatonnement". This conception of economics led to important new insights about the stability of markets and about the capitalist economic system. follower of Walras, Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923), viewed economics as part of the broader science of sociology, extending Walrasian analysis to say that society at large is an equilibrium system. This view profoundly influenced the modern course of the "social sciences', in which quantitative techniques have become standard analytical tools
