Economic sentiments : Adam Smith, Condorcet, and the Enlightenment by Emma Rothschild ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and French and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Economic Sentiments takes up late-eighteenth-century disputes over the political economy of an enlightened, commercial society to show us how the "political" and the "economic" were intricately related to each other and to philosophical reflection. Rothschild examines theories of economic and political sentiments, and the reflection of these theories in the politics of enlightenment. A landmark in the history of economics and of political ideas, her book shows us the origins of laissez-faire economic thought and its relation to political conservatism in an unquiet world. In doing so, it casts a new light on our own times."--BOOK JACKET
The inner life of empires : an eighteenth-century history by Emma Rothschild ( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"They were abolitionists, speculators, slave owners, government officials, and occasional politicians. They were observers of the anxieties and dramas of empire. And they were from one family. The Inner Life of Empires tells the intimate history of the Johnstones--four sisters and seven brothers who lived in Scotland and around the globe in the fast-changing eighteenth century. Piecing together their voyages, marriages, debts, and lawsuits, and examining their ideas, sentiments, and values, renowned historian Emma Rothschild illuminates a tumultuous period that created the modern economy, the British Empire, and the philosophical Enlightenment. One of the sisters joined a rebel army, was imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle, and escaped in disguise in 1746. Her younger brother was a close friend of Adam Smith and David Hume. Another brother was fluent in Persian and Bengali, and married to a celebrated poet. He was the owner of a slave known only as "Bell or Belinda," who journeyed from Calcutta to Virginia, was accused in Scotland of infanticide, and was the last person judged to be a slave by a court in the British isles. In Grenada, India, Jamaica, and Florida, the Johnstones embodied the connections between European, American, and Asian empires. Their family history offers insights into a time when distinctions between the public and private, home and overseas, and slavery and servitude were in constant flux. Based on multiple archives, documents, and letters, The Inner Life of Empires looks at one family's complex story to describe the origins of the modern political, economic, and intellectual world"--

The essential Hirschman by Albert O Hirschman ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Essential Hirschman brings together some of the finest essays in the social sciences, written by one of the twentieth century's most influential and provocative thinkers. Albert O. Hirschman was a master essayist, one who possessed the rare ability to blend the precision of economics with the elegance of literary imagination. In an age in which our academic disciplines require ever-greater specialization and narrowness, it is rare to encounter an intellectual who can transform how we think about inequality by writing about traffic, or who can slip in a quote from Flaubert to reveal something surprising about taxes. The essays gathered here span an astonishing range of topics and perspectives, including industrialization in Latin America, imagining reform as more than repair, the relationship between imagination and leadership, routine thinking and the marketplace, and the ways our arguments affect democratic life. Throughout, we find humor, unforgettable metaphors, brilliant analysis, and elegance of style that give Hirschman such a singular voice. Featuring an introduction by Jeremy Adelman that places each of these essays in context as well as an insightful afterword by Emma Rothschild and Amartya Sen, The Essential Hirschman is the ideal introduction to Hirschman for a new generation of readers and a must-have collection for anyone seeking his most important writings in one book"--

L'effet des dépenses militaires des Etats-Unis sur l'emploi et la production by Rebecca M Blank ( )
2 editions published in 1985 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Utilisant des statistiques d'entrées-sorties et de comptabilité du revenu national et du produit national, les auteurs décrivent l'évolution de la composition par branche d'activité des dépenses militaires des Etats-Unis. Ces dépenses sont fortement concentrées dans quelques industries productrices de biens durables. La baisse de l'emploi global résultant d'une réduction des dépenses militaires pourrait être contrebalancée par une augmentation moins importante des dépenses publiques non militaires ou par une augmentation plus importante des dépenses privées.--SCAD summary

The effect of United States defence spending on employment and output ( )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using input/output data and National Income and Products Accounts data, the authors describe changes in time in the industrial composition of United States defence spending. Defence spending is highly concentrated in a few durable goods industries. The decrease in overall employment resulting from a reduction in defence spending could probably be offset by a less than equivalent increase in non-military public spending or by a greater than equivalent increase in private spending.--SCAD summary
