Gustavo Marqués A Philosophical Framework for Rethinking Theoretical Economics and Philosophy of Economics

This book sets out to encourage a debate about the role that economic theory and philosophy of economics can play. A good part of economics consists of theoretical developments which describe completely imaginary worlds and have no connections to actual market economies. If the purpose of theoretical and philosophical analysis in economics is to make a contribution to find out how modern market economies work and which kind of theoretical practice will be useful for the implementation of successful economic policies, a shift both in philosophy of economics and economics itself is needed. Exposing the ungrounded pretensions of the mainstream philosophy of economics, Marqués’ carefully argued book is a major contribution to the ongoing debate on contemporary mainstream economics and its methodological and philosophical underpinnings. Even those who disagree with his conclusions will benefit from his thorough and deep critique of the modeling strategies used in modern economics. Lars Pålsson Syll, Malmö University, Sweden Is ‘mainstream philosophy of economics’ only about models and imaginary worlds created to represent economic theories? Marqués questions this epistemic focus and calls for the ontological examination of real world economic processes. This book is a serious challenge to standard thinking and an alternative program for a pluralist philosophy of economics.John Davis, Marquette University, USA and University of Amsterdam In recent decades economists have focused he...

Economics and Reality Economics and Reality Новинка

Economics and Reality

There is an increasingly widespread belief, both within and outside the discipline, that modern economics is irrelevant to the understanding of the real world. Economics and Reality traces this irrelevance to the failure of economists to match their methods with their subject, showing that formal, mathematical models are unsuitable to the social realities economists purport to address. Tony Lawson examines the various ways in which mainstream economics is rooted in positivist philosophy and examines the problems this causes. It focuses on human agency, social structure and their interaction and explores how the understanding of this social phenomena can be used to transform the nature of economic practice. Economics and Reality concludes by showing how this newly transformed economics might set about shaping economic policy.

Chris Broyhill The Shadow Contract. Colin Pearce Series IV

Colin Pearce takes to the skies once again!For the last year, an elusive assassin, code-named The Shadow, has evaded counter-intelligence and law enforcement agencies around the world. During that time, 50 people have been killed with long-range, precisely-placed shots taken from the assassin’s .50 caliber rifle. The CIA knows the assassin is using a private jet to travel between targets, so Pearce’s handlers call on his unique talents to help them get closer to the killer. They send him to Paris, as a contract crew member on a Dassault Falcon 7X, and Pearce comes face to face with the deadly assassin, in a guise he never sees coming. From a posh martini bar in London, to the playground of the rich and famous in Saint Moritz, Switzerland, to the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland and the shores of Lake Tahoe, California, Pearce is caught up in a rapidly moving adventure that puts him into the cockpits of several aircraft and brings him face to face with a ruthless killer as well as his own inner demons. Along the way, Pearce will have to confront the carnage he creates with his own hands and the death that seems to occur around him. And he’ll be forced to decide if he can live with the consequences of it all.If he stays alive that long.

Alfred Marshall Industry and Trade (Two Volumes in One)

Alfred Marshall's work influenced half a century of financial philosophy. Though the bulk of his work was completed before the turn of the 20th century, the global ramifications of World War I prompted him to reconsider his theories on international economics, and in 1919 he published the two-volume Industry and Trade. Presented here in one combined volume, he discusses:• the relationship between trade and industry• technical influences on industrial economies• modern finance and business organization• how monopolies and competition impact prices• unions, co-opts, and business federations• and much more.British economist ALFRED MARSHALL (1842-1924) was one of the most prominent thinkers of his age on the philosophy of finance, and his groundbreaking Principles of Economics (1890) was for years the standard text on the subject.

Lars Palsson Syll On the use and misuse of theories and models in mainstream economics

This collection of previously published and new papers is a major intervention in the on-going debate about the nature and future of economics. Instead of the present deductivist-formalist orientation of mainstream economics, Lars Syll advocates for the adoption of a more pluralist approach to economics, arguing for more realism and relevance with less insistence on mathematical modeling. This challenging and thought-provoking book will prove a stimulating read for researchers, academics and students of economics interested in the methodology and philosophy of economics.Lars Pålsson Syll received a PhD in Economic History in 1991 and a PhD in Economics in 1997. Since 2004 he is Professor of Social Science at Malmö University, Sweden."A wonderful set of clearly written and highly informative essays by a scholar who is knowledgeable, critical and sharp enough to see how things really are in the discipline, and honest and brave enough to say how things are. A must read especially for those truly concerned and/or puzzled about the state of modern economics."- Tony Lawson, Cambridge

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 1,0, University of Massachusetts - Amherst (Department of Economics), course: Wirtschaftliche Entwicklung - Economic Development, 31 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Rewarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Muhammad Yunus, the committee acknowledged that microfinance is the latest fashion of both development policy and development economics, some call it even a "popular mass movement" (Woller et al. 1998). Indeed, the development over the last 30 years is impressive: Today, more than 100 million poor have access to small loans. While the formal financial sector perceived financial services to the poor "unimportant for the economy, unprofitable for financial institutions, and unnecessary for the poor", modern microfinance institutions (MFIs) have proven that high recovery rates do not depend mainly on circumstances and the characteristics of the borrower, but on the design of the credit program: "repayment depends fundamentally on factors within the control of the lending institutions" (Robinson 2001).This paper gives a short overview about the roots of modern microfinance and its global history. Some central theoretical aspects of financial markets are discussed and the main innovations of modern microfinance are presented. Focusing on Latin America, the paper shows that microfinance is booming on the continent. While Village Banks, focused on the poor, are s...

John F. Weeks Economics of the 1.. How Mainstream Economics Serves the Rich, Obscures Reality and Distorts Policy

How much do economists really know? In most cases, they claim to have profound knowledge but in fact understand little and obscure almost everything. Most people are convinced that economics should be left to the 'experts', when they themselves are perfectly capable of understanding it. This book explains that mainstream economics serves the interests of the rich through its logical inconsistency and unabashedly reactionary conclusions. John F. Weeks exposes the myths of mainstream economics and explains in straightforward language why current policies fail to serve the vast majority of people in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. Their failure to serve the interests of the many results from their devoted service to the few.

Adam Smith Adam Smith Новинка

Adam Smith

Adam Smith is celebrated all over the world as the author of The Wealth of Nations and the founder of modern economics. A few of his ideas ? such as the ?Invisible Hand? of the market - have become icons of the modern world. Yet Smith saw himself primarily as a philosopher rather than an economist, and would never have predicted that the ideas for which he is now best known were his most important. This book, by one of the leading scholars of the Scottish Enlightenment, shows the extent to which The Wealth of Nations and Smith?s other great work, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, were part of a larger scheme to establish a grand ?Science of Man?, one of the most ambitious projects of the European Enlightenment, which was to encompass law, history and aesthetics as well as economics and ethics. Nicholas Phillipson reconstructs Smith?s intellectual ancestry and formation, of which he gives a radically new and convincing account. He shows Smith's interactions with the rapidly changing and subtly different intellectual and commercial cultures of Glasgow and Edinburgh as they entered the great years of the Scottish Enlightenment. Above all he explains how far Smith?s ideas developed in dialogue with those of his closest friend, the other titan of the age, David Hume. This superb biography is now the one book which anyone interested in the founder of economics must read.

Frank William Taussig Principles of Economics, Volume 1

Economics is more than simply the cost of a gallon of milk. Economics is also the science of society, the basis upon which a civilization functions at its most basic level. Productivity, commerce, and value all are essential elements that define and affect a community deeply. Eminent economist Frank W. Taussig brings the complex and sometimes intimidating subject to light in Principles of Economics (first published in 1911) by writing for the specialist as well as those with a simple educated curiosity about economics and its relevance to every member of a community. In Volume I, he focuses on labor, production, banking, and trade. (Volume II covers the distribution of wealth, wages, problems in economics, and taxes.) By sacrificing no scholarship while ensuring the subjects are accessible, Taussig presents an invaluable treatise on the science of society.American economist FRANK WILLIAM TAUSSIG (1859-1940) was professor of political economy at Harvard University, longtime editor of the Quarterly Journal of Economics, and an advisor to U.S. president Woodrow Wilson during World War II. He is also the author of Elements of Political Economy (1884), The Tariff History of the United States (1888), and International Trade (1927).

Sultan Albareghi Using a bilingual electronic dictionary to improve vocabulary learning for secondary school students of English as a foreign language (EFL)

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, , language: English, abstract: The aim of this evidence-based study is to investigate the use of the bilingual electronic dictionary strategy to improve EFL/ESL secondary school students` vocabulary learning. Three aspects have been studied in depth: the effect of using the electronic bilingual dictionary strategy on improving EFL students' vocabulary learning, the attitudes of the students and the teachers towards the target strategy, and the students` ability to use the bilingual electronic dictionary. The findings of this study indicate that the bilingual electronic dictionary has a positive and an effective role in the process of vocabulary learning. Moreover, the students show positive attitudes towards using the bilingual electronic dictionary. Nevertheless, instructors may show negative attitudes towards the target strategy for certain reasons . The analysis of data further revealed that the critical point that affects the evaluation of the target strategy is the ability to use the electronic dictionary. If the students and teachers are not able to use the bilingual electronic dictionary, they may show negative attitudes towards it and the strategy will then be useless. Thus, the study suggests some recommendations for using the target strategy effectively for EFL/ESL secondary students vocabulary learning and overall lexical acquisition.

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Business economics - Economic and Social History, grade: 1,3, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Economics), 18 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Japan with its 126.8 million inhabitants is the unique example of a Non-Western economy achieving an equal standard of living with other Westerncountries. On top of that, the Japanese economy is the second largest in theworld. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Japans has been $ 4.7 trillions inthe year 2000. This makes Japans economy about 2.5 times larger than theGerman one measured in Dollars.1 In the light of Japans extraordinary role inworld economics, it would be very interesting to look at the background ofJapans historical development of economics. Unfortunately there is non or littleknowledge in Germany about this. The picture, we have here, is ofteninfluenced by clichés such as the Japanese imperialism, the pervasivegovernment bureaucracy and the impressing Japanese economic growth.However, the economy in Japan is no longer growing. There are structuralproblems. We have to ask the question how the ´Japanese Model´ can go on. Iwill therefore give an overview about the Japanese economy and itspossibilities in the future.The start of modern economic growth in the 1870s is closely connected withthe opening Japans to the rest of the world. To understand this development,we have to take a closer look at the economic history before 1854. Thus, mystarting poin...

Esperanto-English Dictionary. Esperanta-Angla Vortaro

Esperanto, the most widely-spoken constructed international auxiliary language, was the creation of Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof, who first published it in 1887. Today Esperanto is estimated to have between 100,000 and 2,000,000 speakers worldwide. The most complete Esperanto dictionary is the "Plena Ilustrita Vortaro", which is available both online and in printed format; but since the PIV is entirely in Esperanto, the need for a modern Esperanto-to-English dictionary remains keen for many Esperantists. Paul Denisowski's "Esperanto-English Dictionary" can help fill a part of that need, on the basis of its sheer size alone, with more than 52,000 headwords. This extensive dictionary was compiled both from existing glossaries and from glossaries prepared by Denisowski himself, and it contains many words not usually found in smaller dictionaries, including an abundance of scientific terms, especially from the fields of medicine and mathematics. It is hoped that the publication of this dictionary will assist a new generation of Esperanto learners in their enjoyment of this unique language. -- Esperanto, la plej vaste parolata internacia planlingvo, estis la kreaĵo de Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof, kiu unue publikigis ĝin en 1887.

A cold, hard look at how modern economics has failed us and why we need a new measure of progress Modern economics has fallen short. It has widened the gap between rich and poor. It has not allocated the world's resources fairly. It has brought the West to the brink of financial ruin. It has placed short-term gain before long-term progress. And it has made us focus on the individual, not the society. The end result is a worldwide financial crisis of epic proportions and a planet being scraped clean of the resources needed by future generations, and things are only getting worse. In The End of Progress: How Modern Economics Has Failed Us popular economist Graeme Maxton looks at what went wrong, and what we can do to get ourselves back on track. During the Age of Enlightenment society flourished, propelled by the wonder of new discoveries, radical ideas for economic and social development, and a sense that we all had a responsibility to improve our world. It's time to get back to those ideals, step back and examine our values, and work out what humankind really needs. Presents a chilling look at our current financial system along with a compelling argument for what we need to change Argues for new measures of progress that emphasize what really matters, not personal greed Offers a timely look at our broken society and where we're headed next A thought-provoking, informative book, The End of Progress looks at what got us into our present mess, and shines light onto the road ahead.

Vladimir Emelyanovich Chabanov Harmonious Economics or The New World Order

Modern economics, which is powered by profit, and not by benefit for people, inevitably follows pecuniary principles, and lives from rent and exploitation. It fails to stand up to modern challenges. For economy to turn into a plant producing useful goods, it should give up all liberal principles, change the economic philosophy, as well as its priorities and instruments. The theory and the properties of such an economic model are described in this monograph.

This book sets out to encourage a debate about the role that economic theory and philosophy of economics can play. A good part of economics consists of theoretical developments which describe completely imaginary worlds and have no connections to actual market economies. If the purpose of theoretical and philosophical analysis in economics is to make a contribution to find out how modern market economies work and which kind of theoretical practice will be useful for the implementation of successful economic policies, a shift both in philosophy of economics and economics itself is needed. Exposing the ungrounded pretensions of the mainstream philosophy of economics, Marqués’ carefully argued book is a major contribution to the ongoing debate on contemporary mainstream economics and its methodological and philosophical underpinnings. Even those who disagree with his conclusions will benefit from his thorough and deep critique of the modeling strategies used in modern economics. Lars Pålsson Syll, Malmö University, Sweden Is ‘mainstream philosophy of economics’ only about models and imaginary worlds created to represent economic theories? Marqués questions this epistemic focus and calls for the ontological examination of real world economic processes. This book is a serious challenge to standard thinking and an alternative program for a pluralist philosophy of economics.John Davis, Marquette University, USA and University of Amsterdam In recent decades economists have focused he...
