Women in the age of economic transformation : gender impact of reforms in post-socialist and developing countries by Nahid Aslanbeigui( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is going through a period of radical change. This is self-evident in post-socialist Europe with the disappearance of centrally planned economies. However, policies of liberalization and privatization are also sweeping the less developed world. While traditional theory predicts beneficial results from these changes, the practical outcome is less certain. Whatever the overall effect, it is clear that some citizens will pay a higher price than others."--BOOK JACKET. "In Women in the Age of Economic Transformation the authors deal with the impact of structural change on women. Each chapter summarizes the changes that have taken place in a particular economy. This is developed further by an empirical analysis of the effect on women. The authors discuss the evidence of gender bias and reach some telling, if unsurprising, conclusions. It seems that, regardless of the type of change involved, women suffer more in the transformation process. The editors conclude that this is unlikely to be random; rather, it reflects the social and political condition of women. Addressing these issues is thus essential if the burden of economic transformation is to be distributed fairly."--BOOK JACKET
The provocative Joan Robinson : the making of a Cambridge economist by Nahid Aslanbeigui( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most original and prolific economists of the twentieth century, Joan Robinson (1903-83) is widely regarded as the most important woman in the history of economic thought. Robinson studied economics at Cambridge University, where she made a career that lasted some fifty years. She was an unlikely candidate for success at Cambridge. A young woman in 1930 in a university dominated by men, she succeeded despite not having a remarkable academic record, a college fellowship, significant publications, or a powerful patron. In The Provocative Joan Robinson, Nahid Aslanbeigui and Guy Oakes trace the strategies and tactics Robinson used to create her professional identity as a Cambridge economist in the 1930s, examining how she recruited mentors and advocates, carefully defined her objectives, and deftly pursued and exploited opportunities. Aslanbeigui and Oakes demonstrate that Robinson's professional identity was thoroughly embedded in a local scientific culture in which the Cambridge economists A.C. Pigou, John Maynard Keynes, Dennis Robertson, Piero Sraffa, Richard Kahn (Robinson's closest friend on the Cambridge faculty), and her husband Austin Robinson were important figures. Although the economists Joan Robinson most admired - Pigou, Keynes, and their mentor Alfred Marshall - had discovered ideas of singular greatness, she was convinced that each had failed to grasp the essential theoretical significance of his own work. She made it her mission to recast their work both to illuminate their major contributions and to redefine a Cambridge tradition of economic thought. Based on the extensive correspondence of Robinson and her colleagues, The Provocative Joan Robinson is the story of a remarkable woman, the intellectual and social world of a legendary group of economists, and the interplay between ideas, ambitions, and disciplinary communities."--Book cover

Arthur Cecil Pigou by Nahid Aslanbeigui( )

16 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British economist Arthur Cecil Pigou (1877-59) reconceptualized economics as a theory of economic welfare and a logic of policy analysis. Misconceptions of his work abound. This book, an essay in demystification and the first reading of the entire Pigouvian oeuvre, stresses his pragmatic and historicist premises

La economía del bienestar by A. C Pigou( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Economics of Welfare occupies a privileged position in economics. It contributed to the professionalization of economics, a goal aggressively and effectively pursued by Pigou's predecessor and teacher Alfred Marshall. The Economics of Welfare also may be credited with establishing welfare economics, by systematically analyzing market departures and their potential remedies. In writing The Economics of Welfare, Pigou built a bridge between the old and the new economics at Cambridge and in Britain. Much of the book remains relevant for contemporary economics. The list of his analyses that continues to play an important role in economics is impressive. Some of the more important include: public goods and externalities, welfare criteria, index number problems, price discrimination, the theory of the firm, the structure of relief programs for the poor, and public finance. Pigou's discussion of the institutional structure governing labor-market operations in his Wealth and Welfare prompted Schumpeter to call the work "the greatest venture in labor economics ever undertaken by a man who was primarily a theorist."The Economics of Welfare established welfare economics as a field of study. The first part analyzes the relationship between the national dividend and economic and total welfare. Parts II and III link the size of the dividend to the allocation of resources in the economy and the institutional structure governing labor-market operations. Part IV explores the relationship between the national dividend and its distribution.In her new introduction, Nahid Aslanbeigui discusses the life of Pigou and the history of The Economics of Welfare. She also discusses Pigou's theories as expressed in this volume and some of the criticisms those theories have met as well as the impact of those criticisms. The Economics of Welfare is a classic that repays careful study."--Provided by publisher

The cost controversy : Pigouvian economics in disequilibrium by Nahid Aslanbeigui( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The standard treatment traces the relation between a firm's costs and output to Jacob Viner's seminal article in 1931. This glosses over the importance of the cost controversy a by-product of which is the development of the basic elements of the theory of the firm in the long-run perfectly competitive framework. This article focuses on the contributions to this area of Arthur Cecil Pigou who-while defending specifying and changing the Marashallian treatment of the laws of returns during the 1922-1932 period - separated external and internal economics of the equilibrium firm drew (perhaps for the first time) U-shaped cost curves and spelled out stability conditions for competitive equilibrum. These provided the building blocks of modern theory of the firm as presented in undergraduate economic textbooks
