A history of economic thought : the LSE lectures by Lionel Robbins Robbins ( Book )
55 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics and the law : from Posner to post-modernism by Nicholas Mercuro ( Book )
22 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is an expanded second edition of Nicholas Mercuro and Steven Medema's book Economics and the Law, whose publication in 1998 marked the most comprehensive overview of the various schools of thought in the burgeoning field of Law and Economics. Each of these competing yet complementary traditions has redefined the study of law and exposed the key economic implications of the legal environment. The book remains true to the scope and aims of the first edition, but also takes account of the field's evolution." "At the book's core is an expanded discussion of the Chicago school, Public Choice Theory, Institutional Law and Economics, and New Institutional Economics. A new chapter explores the Law and Economics literature on social norms, today an integral part of each of the schools of thought. The chapter on the New Haven and Modern Civic Republican approaches has likewise been expanded. These chapters are complemented by a discussion of the Austrian school of Law and Economics. Each chapter now includes an "At Work" section presenting applications of that particular school of thought." "By providing readers with a concise, noncritical description of the broad contours of each school, this book illuminates the fundamental insights of a field with important implications not only for economics and the law, but also for political science, philosophy, public administration, and sociology."--BOOK JACKET

18 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection summarizes the work of key historians of economics and attempts to quantify their impact. Some of these writers such as Friedrich Hayek and Joan Robinson are already assured of their place among the greatest economists of the twentieth century, while the collection also stresses the influence of those still active in shaping our perceptions - the likes of Mark Blaug, Samuel Hollander, and Donald Winch."--BOOK JACKET

Ronald H. Coase by Steven G Medema ( Book )
11 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1991 Ronald Coase was awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics. Over the course of an academic career spanning more than six decades, Coase has brought his own particular approach to economics, and in the process has profoundly challenged the way that economists view the firm; the relations between the law, economics and the economic system; and the possibilities and limitations of markets
Coasean economics : law and economics and the new institutional economics by Steven G Medema ( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection assesses the development of `Coasean Economics' - those aspects of economic analysis that have evolved out of the ground-breaking work of Ronald Coase. Two major strands of research can be identified here: law and economics and the New Institutional Economics. While both law and economics and the analysis of institutions by no means originated with or evolved solely from Coase's work, it is undeniable that his contributions, particularly in The Nature of the Firm and The Problem of Social Cost, played a major role in shaping the contemporary manifestations of these areas of inquiry. This volume focuses on the firm, the Coase theorem, and law and economics - those aspects of economic analysis with which Coase is most closely identified. Along with these come several essays on methodology and one on transitional economies, all against the underlying background of Coase's contributions and influence, and the implications of these for how we do economics. Taken together, this volume offers a unique perspective on `Coasean Economics' as well as on the potential future direction of economic analysis
