Darwinism and evolutionary economics by John Laurent( )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Darwinism and Evolutionary Economics brings together contributions from authors who, building on Darwin's own insights and on developments in evolutionary theory, offer challenging views on how economics can use evolutionary ideas effectively. This collection of critical essays provide a thorough examination of the application of Darwinian theory to economic thought, and will appeal to evolutionary economists and all those with an interest in Darwin, innovation and evolutionary science."--BOOK JACKET
Evolutionary economics and human nature ( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors of this book address the question of human nature in economics, examining not only some of the recent writing on this subject in evolutionary psychology and related disciplines, but also the ideas of important thinkers in the Western intellectual tradition. Beginning with the ancient Greeks and progressing to the modern day, the contributors explore the works of such thinkers as Augustine, Adam Smith, Thomas Malthus, Alfred Marshall and Kenneth Boulding
New perspectives on Adam Smith's The theory of moral sentiments by Geoff Cockfield( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry George's legacy in economic thought ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry George's "Progress and Poverty" sold more than 3 million copies by the time of its 50th anniversary in 1929, outselling all other works on economics, yet today economics students can complete their courses without ever having heard of the author's name. This collection aims to redress this neglect, by presenting a range of perspectives on Henry George's fertile ideas which, it is increasingly argued, merit revisiting in terms of their capacity to contribute towards solutions to current problems including runaway land values, monopoly control of public assets and environmental degradation. The book also discusses George's significant theoretical contributions, including the 'Henry George Theorem', named after him by two Nobel prize winning economists and important insights bearing on the relation of evolutionary theory to economics. The authors also discuss George's powerful influence on the economic development of Australia and New Zealand and the affinity he felt for these countries is also considered
