Change everything : creating an economy for the common good by Christian Felber( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is it possible for businesses to have a bottom line that is not profit and endless growth, but human dignity, justice, sustainability and democracy? Or an alternative economic model that is untainted by the greed and crises of current financial systems? Christian Felber says it is. Moreover, in Change Everything he shows us how. The Economy for the Common Good is not just an idea, but has already become a broad international movement with thousands of people, hundreds of companies, and dozens of communities and organizations participating, developing and implementing it. Published in English for the first time, this is a remarkable blueprint for change that will profoundly influence debates on reshaping our economy for the future." -- Publisher's description
Planning, shortage, and transformation : essays in honor of János Kornai by János Kornai( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 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. Contributors: Abram Bergson, Sharad Bhandari, Bernard Chavance, Mathias Dewatripont, Jacques Dreze, Michael Ellman, Richard Ericson, Istvan R. Gabor, Paul Hare, David M.

The Arrow impossibility theorem by Eric Maskin( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kenneth J. Arrow's pathbreaking "impossibility theorem" was a watershed innovation in the history of welfare economics, voting theory, and collective choice, demonstrating that there is no voting rule that satisfies the four desirable axioms of decisiveness, consensus, nondictatorship, and independence. In this book Eric Maskin and Amartya Sen explore the implications of Arrow's theorem. Sen considers its ongoing utility, exploring the theorem's value and limitations in relation to recent research on social reasoning, and Maskin discusses how to design a voting rule that gets us closer to the ideal--given the impossibility of achieving the ideal. The volume also contains a contextual introduction by social choice scholar Prasanta K. Pattanaik and commentaries from Joseph E. Stiglitz and Kenneth J. Arrow himself, as well as essays by Maskin, Dasgupta, and Sen outlining the mathematical proof and framework behind their assertions
Recent developments in game theory( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1980s, economic theory was revolutionized by game theory. The game theory approach is now widely used, becoming a major tool in the construction of a modern theory of industrial organization. This is a collection of papers on the development and application of game theory in economics
Environment and Development Economics : Essays in Honor of Sir Partha Dasgupta by Scott Barrett( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book honours Partha Dasgupta, and the field he helped establish; environment and development economics. It concerns the relationship between social systems and natural systems. Above all, it concerns the poverty-environment nexus: the complex pathways by which people become or remain poor, and resources become or remain overexploited
Wage inequality and segregation by skill by Michael Kremer( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 77 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
Incentives, scale economies, and organizational form by Eric Maskin( Book )

Unemployment with observable aggregate shocks by Sanford J Grossman( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 24 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
