Economics for Everyone  3rd Edition

The present state of economics is a very fixed culture of one-flow analysis, symbolized in the culture by talk of GDP. Lonergan’s breakthrough was to identify, after a more than a decade of historical and theoretic work, the historical reality and scientific identity of two flows. So, very simply, where Newton leaped from 2 to 1, Lonergan leaped from 1 to 2. The operable heuristic comes from a clear leap, e.g., from viewing economic output as GDP to arrive at an empirically defined GDP' and GDP", where the single prime points to consumer goods and the double prime points to producer goods. The leap seems simple but it requires very precise thinking about the relations between the two economic flows, a relation that, when not understood and controlled, gives rise to the booms and slumps named and studied by Kondratieff, Juglar, Kitchin, Schumpeter, and later authors. Why should a reader by this book? It offers a long-term optimistic view of how transformations of the current mess in pseudo-economics—whether in the form of abusive textbooks and well-intentioned abusive teachers, or in the form of the daily “business news,” which has more to do with gambling than business—will lead to a just and shared greatness way beyond current proclamations about America being or becoming great. The Preface to the 3rd edition adds a key simple exercise that can get the reader right into the ball-park of the new economics. The first two chapters should bring a serious reader to the startling conviction that we have been trapped in an alchemy of money for centuries.

International Economics

Latest Edition: International Economics: Global Markets and Competition (4th Edition) This book integrates the microeconomics of trade with international finance and open economy macroeconomics. The emphasis throughout is on international competition and the limits of trade policy. Economics began with a debate over tariffs. Domestic industries lobby for protection against foreign competitors or export subsidies. Government policy makers dole favors in return for cash and votes. Governments negotiate free trade agreements but disregard them when possible with tariffs, export subsidies, and other policies to influence foreign trade and investment. The forces of international competition, however, eventually overwhelm government policy. This text presents the critical issues of international trade and finance. Trade theory includes partial equilibrium market analysis, neoclassical trade models, constant cost production, factor proportions production, and models of industrial organization. The text integrates concepts from international finance and the basic models of open economy macroeconomics. The presentation uses graphs with numerical examples making the theory easier for students, especially when combined with more general classroom presentation. The text does not assume previous courses in intermediate economics or calculus but develops the theory with simple tools. Numerous questions give students confidence to use the theoretical models and concepts. Over 250 boxed examples illustrate the theory, many with visually descriptive charts and plots. The text is concise in its presentation style. Students enjoy its clear straightforward style and instructors notice the difference on exams.

The Growth of Economic Thought

In a new and updated edition of this classic textbook, Henry William Spiegel brings his discussion and analysis of economic thought into the 1990s.

Maintaining the link between economics and the humanities, Spiegel’s text will continue to introduce students to a wide range of topics in the history of economic thought. From reviews of previous editions: “The history of economic thought to end all histories of economic thought.”—Robert D. Patton, Journal of Economic Literature “The book is in the grand tradition of the history of doctrines. It is a history of economic thought broadly conceived—and superbly written to boot. It is not to much to say that Spiegel’s book will become and remain a leading text in the field.”—Warren J. Samuels, Social Science The author conveys the essence of an idea simply and clearly, yet in a graceful style.”—William F. Kennedy, Journal of Economic Literature

Economic Logic Fourth Edition

“Eureka! Skousen has done the impossible. Students love it! I will never use another textbook again.”—Harry Veryser, University of Detroit-Mercy They said it couldn’t be done. Austrian economics is so different, they said, that it couldn’t be integrated into standard “neo-classical” textbooks. Consequently, college students learn nothing about the great Austrian economists (Mises, Hayek, Schumpeter). Professor Mark Skousen’s Economic Logic aims to change that. Based on his popular course taught at Columbia University, Skousen starts his “micro” section with Carl Menger’s “theory of the good” and the profit-and-loss income statement to explain the dynamics of the market process, entrepreneurship, and the advantages of saving. Then he uses a powerful Hayekian four-stage model of the economy to introduce “macro,” including a new Austrian measure of spending at all stages of production (Gross Domestic Expenditures). Economic Logic also offers chapters on: The international gold standard, the defects of central banking, and the Mises/Hayek theory of the business cycle. A full critique of the Keynesian Aggregate Supply and Demand (AS-AD) model, and a revolutionary Austrian alternative. Entrepreneurship, the financial markets, environmental economics, monetary policy and inflation, federal spending and taxes, and government regulation. Leaders of all schools, including Austrian, Keynesians, Marxist, Chicago, and Public Choice.
