A companion to the history of economic thought by Warren J Samuels( Book )

26 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This companion offers a comprehensive and sophisticated exploration of the history of economic thought. It has a threefold focus: the history of economic thought; the history of economics as a discipline; and the historiography of economic thought. The essays in the first section focus on the history of economic ideas, with topics ranging from ancient, Medieval and Islamic thought, to Marxian, Utopian and post-war thought. The second section explores important historiographical topics, including the sociology of economics, methodology, exegesis and textuality. Each short essay serves as a complex introduction to the chosen topic, and gathered together they provide an extensive synthesis of the field as a whole. The volume should be a useful resource for anyone researching or studying the history of economic thought, and will also serve as a text for courses in this area

Beauty, productivity and discrimination : lawyers' looks and lucre by Jeff Biddle( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We propose several models in which an ascriptive characteristic generates earnings differentials and is sorted across sectors. The general approach shows how to distinguish the ultimate sources of labor-market returns to such characteristics; the specific example uses longitudinal data on a large sample of attorneys who graduated from one law school. Beauty is measured by ratings of their matriculation photographs. 1) Better-looking attorneys who graduated in the 1970s earned more after 5 years of practice than their worse- looking classmates, other things equal, an effect that grew even larger by the fifteenth year of practice. There is no impact of beauty on earnings among 1980s graduates. 2) Attorneys in the private sector are better-looking than those in the public sector, with the differences rising as workers sort across sector based on their beauty. 3) Male attorneys' probability of attaining an early partnership rises with beauty. The results support a theory of dynamic sorting and the role of customer behavior. We cannot determine whether this is because clients discriminate or because better-looking lawyers are able to obtain greater pecuniary gains for their clients
Beauty and the labour market by Daniel S Hamermesh( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We develop a theory of sorting across occupations based on looks and derive its implications for testing for the source of earnings differentials related to looks. These differentials are examined using the 1977 Quality of Employment, the 1971 Quality of American Life, and the 1981 Canadian Quality of Life surveys, all of which contain interviewers' ratings of the respondents' physical appearance. Holding constant demographic and labor-market characteristics, plain people earn less than people of average looks, who earn less than the good-looking. The penalty for plainness is 5 to 10 percent, slightly larger than the premium for beauty. The effects are slightly larger for men than women; but unattractive women are less likely than others to participate in the labor force and are more likely to be married to men with unexpectedly low human capital. Better-looking people sort into occupations where beauty is likely to be more productive; but the impact of individuals' looks on their earnings is mostly independent of occupation

This volume includes archival documents and essays exploring the inter-relationship between the government and the economy.

In addition to their essay, Levy et al. include significant and interesting historical documents as part of the story. The second piece, by Warren J. Samuels, examines Heinrich von Treitschkes view on property as a function of politics using archival documents. The last three pieces include a detailed examination of Warren J.
