The Moral economists : R. H. Tawney, Karl Polanyi, E. P.

ISBN : 9781400888023.

What-s wrong with capitalism? Answers to that question
today focus on material inequality. Led by economists and
conducted in utilitarian terms, the critique of
capitalism in the twenty-first century is primarily
concerned with disparities in income and wealth. It was
not always so. This book reconstructs another critical
tradition, developed across the twentieth century in
Britain, in which material deprivation was less important
than moral or spiritual desolation. The author focuses on
three of the twentieth century-s most influential critics
of capitalism-R. H. Tawney, Karl Polanyi, and E. P.
Thompson. Making arguments about the relationships
between economics and ethics in modernity, their works
commanded wide readerships, shaped research agendas, and
influenced public opinion.

This book challenges that globalization is neither an
historic nor technological inevitability, rather,
globalization and technological change are as old as
capitalism itself. The author argues that the reduced
power of national governments is a result of the free-
market reforms of globalization created in the 1980s era
of Thatcher and Reagan, which led to the 2008 global
financial crisis and recession. The free-market
`capitalism unleashed- form of globalization is neither
inevitable nor desirable - it is possible to develop a
new global green deal for economic progress, being
socially and environmentally sustainable. He demonstrates
that capital has become unproductive with increased
speculation and tax evasion, and that taxing wealth is
necessary to create a new era of globally sustainable

The capitalist system is stricken with at least five
worsening disorders for which no cure is at hand:
declining growth, oligarchy, starvation of the public
sphere, corruption and international anarchy. In this
arresting book Wolfgang Streak asks if we are witnessing
a long and painful period of cumulative decay: of
intensifying frictions, of fragility and uncertainty, and
of a steady succession of -normal accidents.

The collection includes papers that study the behavior of
exchange rates from the traditional macroeconomic and
newer microstructure perspectives. The former perspective
considers the linkages between the macro economy and
currency prices in an effort to understand the behavior
of exchange rates over quarters, years and decades. By
contrast, the microstructure perspective considers how
the details of currency trading affect how macroeconomic
information becomes embedded in currency prices, a
process which drives exchange-rates over intraday
horizons. The book also contains papers with a hybrid
perspective that consider the details of currency trading
and macroeconomic linkages in an effort to understand
exchange-rate dynamics across all horizons.

This book offers an explanation of how the euro
experiment came about and was sustained despite a severe
crisis, and provides a comparison with the monetary-
financial history of the US. This book argues that
diversity of membership is not an economic obstacle to
the success of the euro, as diversity increases the
potential gains from risk sharing. But political
cooperation is needed to realize this potential, and such
cooperation is up against collective action problems
which become more intractable as the parties become more

ISBN : 9780262036931.

This book reviews the theoretical research on unlawful
collusion, with a focus on two issues: the impact of
competition law and enforcement on whether, how long, and
how much firms collude, and the optimal design of
competition law and enforcement. It begins by discussing
general issues that arise when models of collusion take
into account competition law and enforcement. It goes on
to consider game-theoretic models that encompass the
probability of detection and penalties incurred when
convicted, and examines how these policy instruments
affect the frequency of cartels, cartel duration, cartel
participation, and collusive prices. The book then
considers the design of competition law and enforcement,
examining such topics as the formula for penalties and
leniency programs. The book concludes with suggested
future lines of inquiry into illegal collusion.
