Why the world economy needs a financial crash and other critical essays on finance and financial economics by Jan Toporowski( )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume explain how financial inflation shifts banking and financial markets towards more speculative activity, changing the financial structure of the economy and corroding the social and political values that underlie welfare state capitalism
The end of finance : the theory of capital market inflation, financial derivatives, and pension fund capitalism by Jan Toporowski( )

33 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The End of Finance develops a theory of capital market inflation rooted in the work of Veblen, Kalecki, Keynes and Minsky, demonstrating how it disinclines productive activity on the part of the firms, provides only short-term conditions that are propitious for privatization, and distorts monetary policy in the long term. The author examines the role of pension fund schemes and financial derivatives in transmitting capital market inflation and provides a nuanced analysis of the contradictory role they play in the financial system. Capital market inflation is also examined in its historical context and compared with past inflations, in particular the South Sea and Mississippi Bubbles, which spawned the first financial derivatives and the first privatizations
Political economy and the new capitalism : essays in honour of Sam Aaronovitch( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 1,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines key developments in capitalist economies at the end of the 20th century and brings together essays by leading economists in honour of the late Sam Aaronovitch, the veteran left-wing economist. In his work, Sam Aaronovitch emphasized the need to take into account the most recent developments in capitalist economies. In this spirit the essays in this volume focus on key issues raised by contemporary trends, including: how the apparent triumph of capitalism reflects on Marxism; the role of the collapse of Communism in undermining the post-war Keynesian settlement; and the relevance of Keynesianism to contemporary capitalism. The book also examines the relevance of Sam Aaronovitch's pioneering empirical studies of British capitalism in the light of modern developments. A wide range of problems are reviewed from industrial concentration today to the co-ordination of economic policies in Europe. Aaronovitch's work on the role of finance in the British economy is the subject of sustained reflection
Theories of financial disturbance : an examination of critical theories of finance from Adam Smith to the present day by Jan Toporowski( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is more than just a study in the history of economic thought - it illustrates how economic debate focuses upon financial disturbance at times of financial instability, and then conveniently discards critical views when such instability recedes. Jan Toporowski looks at the development of critical theories from the views of Adam Smith and Francois Quesnay, and their reflection in recent new Keynesian ideas of Joseph Stiglitz and Ben Bernanke, through credit cycles in Alfred Marshall and Ralph Hawtrey, to the financial theories of Thorstein Veblen and Irving Fisher." "Jan Toporowski's work will find its audience in academics of finance and financial economics, bankers, financiers and policy makers concerned with financial stability as well as anyone looking for arguments on the imperfect functioning of finance."--Jacket

11 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In determining the causes of that crash, Jan Toporowski examines the way in which finance and capital markets operate and concludes that the crash was an economically insignificant event in the general inflation of capital markets. Dr Toporowski argues that rather than the crash itself, it was capital market inflation that eventually contributed to the economic slump of the 1990s

Michal Kalecki : an intellectual biography by Jan Toporowski( )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Polish economist Michal Kalecki (1899-1970) was one of the architects of the Keynesian Revolution in economic theory and policy who came to England soon after the publication of Keynes's General Theory. Jan Toporowski's intellectual biography of Kalecki brings to the general reader, as well as professional economists, an explanation of the key ideas of Kalecki and how these differed from the theories of John Maynard Keynes. The book contains a wealth of new material on Kalecki and Keynes's circle in Cambridge, their shared ideas and disagreements. Kalecki's discussions of the business cycle, the New Deal, and the respective economic policies of the Popular Front in France, Nazi Germany and inter-War Poland, changed the Economics of the twentieth century. Jan Toporowski's lively and accessible discussion of Kalecki's intellectual development casts important new light on Economics and economic policy in a time of instability and financial crisis"--

Finance and industrial policy : beyond financial regulation in Europe by Giovanni Cozzi( )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2008 global financial crisis, together with the experience of de-industrialization across Western Europe over the last three decades, has focussed attention on financial regulation and industrial policy. Industry and finance policies have largely been discussed separately, and this book argues that the two should be considered together, in both analysis and policy formulation that deals with critical questions of how finance has intervened in industrial restructuring and how it might better serve the real economy. Moreover, policy debates have paid relatively little attention to the heterogeneous economic structures and growth trajectories of European economies, and the interconnectedness and interdependencies of growth paths that present specific challenges to policy and highlight the need for cooperation across the region. This book brings together leading scholars and policy makers to contribute to policy debates in three ways. First, it includes current discussions of banking policy, regulation, and reform to reassert the need for financial institutions that will back up and finance an industrial policy to revive the European economy. Second, it reviews the role of industrial and investment policy in supporting innovation, creating jobs, and generating sustainable economic growth. Third, it advances alternative policy proposals aimed at generating sustainable economic growth and employment in Europe. Part I analyses the nature of growth, industrial, and economic restructuring in relation to finance in the lead up to the crisis, at regional, national, and sector levels. Part II presents alternative and progressive policy proposals for growth and employment in Europe in light of the analysis presented in Part I

Rosa Luxemburg : theory of accumulation and imperialism by Tadeusz Kowalik( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this translated volume Tadeusz Kowalik's book is to examine Rosa Luxemburg's contribution to economic theory. The essential subject-matter is the dependence of capital accumulation on effective demand, the dependence of economic growth on specific capitalist barriers to growth. The second part of this book is devoted to the relationship between capital accumulation and economic and political imperialism. Kowalik attempts to vindicate the analysis of Rosa Luxemburg in her Accumulation of Capital as a Marxist classic. He puts forward as an alternative under-investment theory of capitalist stagnation that was accepted among Marxists, and links this interpretation of Luxemburg with Marx's critique of Say's Law and with the development of Luxemburg's theory in the work of Michal Kalecki and John Maynard Keynes. Luxemburg's analysis is contrasted with the underconsumptionist theory of capitalist crisis that prevailed among her critics. Although Kowalik recognises Luxemburg's analysis as incomplete, he argues that she correctly identified the realisation of surplus as the key constraint on expanded production in capitalism. This then points to a reinterpretation of Kalecki and Keynes, placing their analysis in a clear line of descent from Marx. Kalecki's analysis of militarism complements neatly Luxemburg's analysis, while Kowalik identifies neo-colonialism as a type of Luxemburg's imperialism, providing markets that allow for the realisation of profits in the advanced capitalist countries. Toporowski and Szymborska's accessible translation of Tadeusz Kowalik's masterpiece will appeal to professional economists, scholars, researchers and students of the history of economic thought and economic theory"--

Minsky, financial development and crisis( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the recent financial crisis unfolded into a worldwide recession, the ideas of Hyman Minsky were re-discovered. Minsky, along with Keynes, belongs in the pantheon of seminal thinkers, owing to his major contribution to the understanding of the economy and its evolution. This collection of essays adapts and develops Minsky's innovative insights, while keeping the originality of his methodology and vision. Providing vital interpretations of the present crisis, this volume shows that it is time to take a step forward in our understanding of Minsky, his visions of a capitalist economy with developed financial institutions, and the real possibilities of the Financial Instability Hypothesis. This book is essential reading for all interested in development economics, the history of economic thought, and the global economic crisis
