The eclipse of Keynesianism : the political economy of the Chicago counter-revolution by Robert Leeson ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a context for these developments: Stigler's model of the sociology of economic knowledge and Friedman's sceptical view of the appropriate role of econometrics in economic analysis. The book also examines the way in which Friedman infuriated and captivated his Keynsian opponents. Gradually, some Keynsians began to display a more tolerant attitude towards inflation, the societal problem which facilitated the political and economic revolutions of the Thatcher-Reagan years."--BOOK JACKET

Ideology and the international economy : the decline and fall of Bretton Woods by Robert Leeson ( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1975, US Treasury Secretary William Simon informed the IMF annual meeting that "We strongly believe that countries must be free to choose their own exchange rate system". As flexible exchange rates were legitimised, several leading countries began to experiment with monetary targeting. These two revolutionary policy changes were inter-related: a flexible exchange rate is a precondition for an independent national monetary policy. Having lost one 'sacred' symbol or anchor (fixed exchange rates), central bankers began to experiment with another. Both these developments were the culmination of campaigns led by Milton Friedman during the previous quarter of a century. Robert Leeson examines the process by which Friedman's case for flexible exchange rates was transformed from heresy to academic consensus and lynchpin of the post-1973 international monetary order. The primary focus of this study of political economy is on the organisation and the dissemination of the intellectual and political forces that undermined the Bretton Woods system

Hayek and behavioral economics by Roger S Frantz ( Book )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Friedrich Hayek was awarded the 1974 Nobel Prize for Economic Sciences for his contributions to the analysis of money and the business cycle, and for his penetrating analysis of the interdependence of economic, social and institutional phenomena. Hayek was a polymath: he systematically analyzed human rationality, the nature of knowledge, and methodology. This book, which analyses his contributions to the emerging - and revolutionary - field of behavioral economics, has been written by an outstanding collection of authors including Deirdre McCloskey, Herbert Gintis, Peter Boettke and Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith. It is demonstrated that Hayek's seminal contributions came decades before economists such as Herbert Simon (winner of the 1978 Nobel Prize) and Harvey Leibenstein began to develop the field in earnest.--Résumé de l'éditeur
