Planning, shortage, and transformation essays in honor of János Kornai ( )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The three major themes of Janos Kornai's work reflected in the title of this book--planning, shortage, and transition, or transformation--figure prominently in the essays. After a philosophical introduction by Edmond Malinvaud, the book is divided into three sections: Markets and Organizations, Theory of Transition, and The Transitional Experience. Janos Kornai is one of the world's leading experts on the economics of socialism and transition. An early advocate of reform in Hungary, he has written penetrating analyses of centrally planned economies and their transformation to market-oriented systems. This volume is being published in celebration of Kornai's seventieth birthday.

Wage inequality and segregation by skill by Michael Kremer ( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Evidence from the US, Britain, and France suggests that recent growth in wage inequality has been accompanied by greater segregation of high- and low-skill workers into separate firms. A model in which workers of different skill-levels are imperfect substitutes can simultaneously account for these increases in segregation and inequality either through technological change, or, more parsimoniously, through observed changes in the skill-distribution
Unemployment with Observable Aggregate Shocks by Sanford J Grossman ( Book )
4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Consider an economy subject to two kinds of shocks: (a) an observable shock to the relative demand for final goods which causes dispersion in relative prices, and (b) shocks, unobservable by workers, to the technology for transforming intermediate goods into final goods. A worker in a particular intermediate goods industry knows that the unobserved price of his output is determined by (1) the technological shock that determines which final goods industry uses his output intensively and (2) the price of the final good that uses his output intensively. When there is very little relative price dispersion among final goods, then it doesn't matter which final goods industry uses the worker's output. Thus the technological shock is of very little importance in creating uncertainty about the worker's marginal product when there is little dispersion of relative prices. Hence an increase in the dispersion of relative prices amplifies the effect of technological uncertainty on a worker's marginal value product. We consider a model of optimal labor contracts in a situation where the workers have less information than the firm about their marginal value product. A relative price shock of the type described above increases the uncertainty which workers have about their marginal value product. We show that with an optimal asymmetric information employment contract the industries which are adversely affected by the relative price shock will contract more than they would under complete information (i.e., where workers could observe their marginal value product). On the other hand the industry which is favorably affected by the relative price shock will - not expand by more than would be the case under complete information. Hence an observed relative demand shock, which would leave aggregate employment unchanged under complete information, will cause aggregate employment to fall under asymmetric information about the technological shock

The simple economics of research portfolios by Partha Dasgupta ( )
4 editions published between 1987 and 1993 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this article the authors undertake some simple exercises in the economics of research portfolios. Three questions are raised: whether competition among rival research units leads to too high a rate of technological advance; whether competition encourages rivals to undertake excessive risks; whether competition induces them to choose overly similar research projects.--SCAD summary
