The Invisible Hand- offers a radical departure from the
conventional wisdom of economists and economic
historians, by showing that -factor markets- and the
economies dominated by them - the market economies - are
not modern, but have existed at various times in the
past. This work analyses three major, pre-industrial
examples of successful market economies in western
Eurasia: Iraq in the early Middle Ages, Italy in the high
Middle Ages, and the Low Countries in the late Middle
Ages and the early modern period.

corporate governance related issues in banks and other
financial institutions, such as executive directors-
remuneration and bankers- bonuses, board composition and
board diversity. This book, dedicated to the corporate
governance of banks and other financial institutions,
makes a timely and accessible contribution to the

The phenomena of Japan emerging as one of the most
competitive industrial nations in the twentieth century
and the general shift of competitiveness to East Asia
since the 1980s have been widely studied by many scholars
from different fields of the social sciences. Drawing on
sources from Japanese, Swiss, and American archives, the
historical analysis of this book tackles a wide range of
actors and sheds light on the various processes that
enabled Japanese watch companies to transfer technology
and expand commercially starting in the second half of
the nineteenth century.

Today, the word is nearly ubiquitous: seeming to have
come out of nowhere to dominate the discussion, from
permaculture to renewable energy to the local food
movement, the ideas that underlie and define
sustainability can be traced back several centuries. In
this illuminating and entertaining history, Jeremy L.
Caradonna traces its origins to the emergence of planned
yield forestry in the late 17th and 18th centuries,
through the challenges of the Industrial Revolution in
the 19th, the birth of the environmental movement in the
20th, and finally the emergence of a concrete effort to
create a society that is stable, prosperous, ecologically
minded, and forward looking.

A growing middle class in Asia has contributed to the
area-s economic expansion, providing Asian countries with
a window of opportunity to leap from low/middle income
levels to high income levels. It may sound easy for these
countries to run up the ladder of economic growth, but
the potential risks of quickly shifting from low/middle
to high income levels are often overlooked.

ruled by distinct methodological standards. In the
Keynesian era, the book studies the following theories:
Keynesian macroeconomics, monetarism, disequilibrium
