   3 Wilson, David S. (ed)
Complexity and evolution : toward a new synthesis for
economics / David S. Wilson and Alan Kirman.-- Cambridge:
The MIT press, 2016.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780262035385.
330.1 WIL 145555
Two widely heralded yet contested approaches to economics
have emerged in recent years: one emphasizes evolutionary
theory in terms of individuals and institutions, the
other views economies as complex adaptive systems. In
this book, leading scholars examine these two bodies of
theory, exploring their possible impact on economics.
Relevant concepts from evolutionary theory drawn on by
the contributors include the distinction between
proximate and ultimate causation, multilevel selection,
cultural change as an evolutionary process, and human
psychology as a product of gene-culture co evolution.
Applicable ideas from complexity theory include self-
organization, fractals, chaos theory, sensitive
dependence, basins of attraction, and path dependence.

Labour economics and public policy : managing the labour
markets for competitiveness / Chew Soon Beng.-- New
Jersey: World Scientific, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9789813149809.
331.12042 BEN 145544
This book serves as a textbook on labour economics and
public policy in labour markets. It also shows how
Singapore has been successful in establishing a world
class labour market. One attribute of such a labour
market is the high purchasing power of wages for the
average worker for essentials such as housing,
healthcare, quality education for children and retirement
consumption, which motivates Singaporeans to work hard.
The second attribute is a macro-focused labour union that
works closely with the government, and is able to prevent
excessive wage increase.

   5 Orrell, David
The Evolution of money / David Orrell and Roman Chlupaty.

vii,309p., 24cm.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780231173728.
332.49 ORR 145556
The Evolution of Money illuminates this fascinating
reality, focusing on the tension between currency-s real
and abstract properties and advancing a vital theory of
money rooted in this dual exchange. It begins with the
debt tablets of ancient Mesopotamia and follows with the
development of coin money in early Greece and Rome, gold-
backed currencies in medieval Europe, and monetary
economics in Victorian England. The book concludes in the
digital era, with the crypto currencies and service
providers that are making the most of money-s virtual
aspects and that suggest a tectonic shift within the
relevant power structures. By building this organic
timeline, The Evolution of Money helps us visualize and
strategize money-s next, transformative role.

This book is a comprehensive, critical analysis of

law, industrial organization and welfare, the book then
critiques the economics of specific intellectual property
rights, including copyright, patents, trademarks,
geographical indications and design rights. It further
assesses the interaction between economics, IP and
competition. Finally, it examines why, when and how IP
generates value, reviewing contemporary approaches to
valuation and accounting, and the emerging use of IP to
facilitate business finance.

press, 2017.
(Public management and change series).
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9781626164475.
352.67 DEH 145553
This book provides a comprehensive portrait of rules in
public organizations, and it explains the characteristics
of beneficial rules that help public organizations
function effectively, what the author calls "green-tape."
Drawing on a decade of original research and
interdisciplinary scholarship, DeHart-Davis builds a
framework of three perspectives. The organizational
perspective, which sees rules as a tool for achieving
managerial goals and organizational functions, the
individual perspective, which examines how rule design
and implementation impact employees, and the behavioral
perspective, which explores human responses to the
intersection of the first two perspectives. The author
uses this framework to analyze a local-government case
study of non-union employee grievance policy. The book
concludes with summarizing key findings for practitioners
as well as suggesting directions for.
