Economics, principles, and policy by William J Baumol ( Book )
197 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ever since the First Edition, Economics: Principles and Policy was predicated on the view that practical issues and developments in the economy should influence the content of an introductory economics course. This book contains its share of theoretical material. But the theory is not merely an exercise in making students miserable; it is driven by issues that are real and current. And every discussion of theory is related to applications, so as to offer students a continuing sense of the relevance of the material to reality. - Publisher

Good capitalism, bad capitalism, and the economics of growth and prosperity by William J Baumol ( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Imagine this: a mere century ago, the purchasing power of an average American was one-tenth of what it is today. But what will it take to sustain that growth through the next century? And what can be said about economic growth to aspiring nations seeking higher standards of living for their citizens?" "In this important book, William J. Baumol, Robert E. Litan, and Carl J. Schramm contend that the answers to these questions lie within capitalist economies, though many observers make the mistake of believing that "capitalism" is of a single kind. Writing in an accessible style, the authors dispel that myth, documenting four different varieties of capitalism, some "Good" and some "Bad" for growth. The authors identify the conditions that characterize Good Capitalism - the right blend of entrepreneurial and established firms, which can vary among countries - as well as the features of Bad Capitalism."--Jacket

Convergence of productivity cross-national studies and historical evidence by William J Baumol ( )
16 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of original articles reviews the current state of knowledge concerning the convergence hypothesis. This hypothesis asserts that, for a restricted set of countries, their productivity and living standards are undergoing a process that brings them increasingly close to one another. Among the factors considered are patterns of industries as well as aggregate economies, influences that underlie the degree of convergence that seems to have occurred, and the role that convergence plays in the future of the newly developed nations. Much of the analysis is set in historical perspective

Downsizing in America : reality, causes, and consequences by William J Baumol ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Downsizing in America offers a range of compelling hypotheses to account for adoption of downsizing as an accepted business practice. In the short run, many companies experiencing difficulties due to decreased sales, cash flow problems, or declining securities prices reduced their workforces temporarily, expanding them again when business conditions improved. The most significant trigger leading to long-term downsizing was the rapid change in technology. Companies rid themselves of their least skilled workers and subsequently hired employees who were better prepared to work with new technology, which in some sectors reduced the size of firms at which production is most efficient." "Baumol, Blinder, and Wolff also reveal what they call the dirty little secret of downsizing: it is profitable in part because it holds down wages. Downsizing in America shows that reducing employee rolls increased profits, since downsizing firms spent less money on wages relative to output but it did not increase productivity. Nor did unions impede downsizing. The authors show that unionized industries were actually more likely to downsize in order to eliminate expensive union labor. In sum, downsizing transferred income from labor to capital - from workers to owners." "Downsizing in America combines an investigation of the underlying realities and causes of workforce reduction with an insightful analysis of the consequent shift in the balance of power between management and labor, to provide us with a deeper understanding of one of the major economic shifts of recent times - one with far-reaching implications for all American workers."--Jacket

The free-market innovation machine : analyzing the growth miracle of capitalism by William J Baumol ( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why has capitalism produced economic growth that so vastly dwarfs the growth record of other economic systems, past and present? Why have living standards in countries from America to Germany to Japan risen exponentially over the past century? William Baumol rejects the conventional view that capitalism benefits society through price competition--that is, products and services become less costly as firms vie for consumers. Where most others have seen this as the driving force behind growth, he sees something different--a compound of systematic innovation activity within the firm, an arms race in which no firm in an innovating industry dares to fall behind the others in new products and processes, and inter-firm collaboration in the creation and use of innovations
