The Penguin dictionary of economics by Graham Bannock( Book )
96 editions published between 1972 and 1987 in 4 languages and held by 834 libraries worldwide
"Whether you want to follow the economic discussions in the media today, or study economics or need some knowledge of it at work (in business, finance or the public sector), this wide-ranging and accessible dictionary will prove invaluable. It explains a host of economic terms, from acceleration principle to X-efficiency, globalization to venture capital, and from Euro to zero-sum game. Revised and updated for its seventh edition, The Penguin Dictionary of Economics is detailed, practical and international in scope. Its entries include: general economic terms; economic theory, including coverage of development economics, industrial organization, finance and game theory, as well as international monetary and welfare economics; coverage of applied economics and major financial institutions; history of economics; and entries on individual economists who have made a definable contribution to contemporary economic thought."--BOOK JACKET
Microeconomics by Hugh Gravelle( Book )
107 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 778 libraries worldwide
A comprehensive exposition of modern microeconomic theory, beginning at the intermediate level and ending at an appropriate level for graduate students
Economics : a mathematical introduction by C. J McKenna( Book )
20 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 304 libraries worldwide
A textbook aimed at first-year undergraduates in economics, specifically those who are taking a course in mathematics for economists. It provides material on partial differentiation, maximization and matrices and determinants, as well as macroeconomics and
Public economics and the household by Patricia Apps( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
This graduate-level text develops a more sophisticated model of household economics that allows for multiple-income earners and shared decision-making
Mathematics for economics by Michael Hoy( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
This text offers a comprehensive presentation of the mathematics required to tackle problems in economic analysis. To give a better understanding of the mathematical concepts, the text follows the logic of the development of mathematics rather than that of an economics course. The only prerequisite is high school algebra, but the book goes on to cover all the mathematics needed for undergraduate economics. It is also a useful reference for graduate students. After a review of the fundamentals of sets, numbers, and functions, the book covers limits and continuity, the calculus of functions of one variable, linear algebra, multivariate calculus, and dynamics. To develop the student's problem-solving skills, the book works through a large number of examples and economic applications. This streamlined third edition offers an array of new and updated examples
The economics of investment analysis by Ray Rees( Book )
8 editions published between 1973 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 71 libraries worldwide
Feasibility study of a cost benefit assessment of maritime industrial development areas by Maurice Harry Peston( Book )
3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Dictionary of economics by Graham Bannock( Book )
10 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in Spanish and English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"No authority can distill the world of economics better than The Economist. This new edition of Dictionary of Economics has been extensively revised to include the latest trends and thinking in a field that has grown geometrically in importance since the previous edition was published in 1998. This acclaimed resource now contains more than 1,500 entries covering common and less usual economic terms; the contributions made by noted economists such as Marx, Keynes, and Galbraith; the historical development of the science of economics; and the latest theories, illuminated with examples from international affairs. With its comprehensive cross-referencing, this is an ideal resource for the growing number of people who need some knowledge of economics in their daily work--in teaching, business, finance, or government. Whether one's aim is to follow economic discussion in the press or to make an important business or policy decision, there is no better tool"--Publisher description

Relational contracts, taxation and the household by Patricia Apps( Computer File )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
This paper applies the theory of relational contracts to make precise the idea that because households are engaged in a repeated non-cooperative game, Pareto efficient outcomes can be supported by self interest, given the specific pattern of specialisation and exchange which exists in the household. The household's choice of a particular solution from the resulting feasible set is found by the maximisation of a household welfare function, a generalisation of a suggestion originally made by Samuelson. This nests as special cases the objective functions used in currently popular models of households engaged in one-shot cooperative games. We take a specific example of such a household welfare function, characterise the determinants of the household utility distribution, and then apply the model to examine the effects of a move from joint to individual taxation. We show that on standard stylised facts, secondary earners are always better off absolutely, and define the conditions under which they will also be so relatively. This confirms the conclusions from models which concern themselves only with the across-household welfare distribution. -- Relational contracts ; households ; allocations ; taxation ; welfare distribution
Fertility, female labor supply and public policy by Patricia Apps( Book )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Historically, in virtually all developed economies there seems to be clear evidence of an inverse relationship between female labor supply and fertility. However, particularly in the last decade or so, the relationship across countries has been positive: for example countries like Germany, Italy and Spain with the lowest fertility rates also have the lowest female participation rates. We accept the hypothesis that the reason for this lies in the combined effects of a country's tax system and system of child support, and we have sought to clarify this theoretically, using an extended version of the Galor-Weil model. The results suggest that countries with individual rather than joint taxation, and which support families through improved availability of alternatives to domestic child care, rather than through direct child payments, are likely to have both higher female labor supply and higher fertility. These results are strengthened when we take account of the heterogeneity among households that undoubtedly exists
Optimal piecewise linear income taxation by Patricia Apps( Computer File )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Given its significance in practice, the piecewise linear tax system seems to have received disproportionately little attention in the literature on optimal income taxation. This paper offers a simple and transparent analysis of its main characteristics. -- Piecewise linear ; income ; taxation

Household saving and full consumption over the life cycle by Patricia Apps( Book )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
This paper extends the standard model of life cycle consumption, saving and labor supply in a number of directions. First, it argues that consumption should be defined as expenditure on household production as well as on market goods, that is, we are interested in life cycle profiles of full consumption. If this is done, several well-known puzzles concerning life cycle consumption behaviour are resolved. Secondly, we stress the importance of the heterogeneity of household behaviour in respect of female labour supply and saving, and provide evidence to show that these are very closely related across households. Finally, we formulate theoretical and empirical models incorporating these ideas and use them to show that policy changes, such as a reduction in the progressivity of income taxation, can have effects that contrast sharply with those suggested in the existing literature
Testing the pareto efficiency of household resource allocations by Patricia Apps( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
In a careful and thorough empirical study, Christopher Udry (1996) shows convincingly that, in a large sample of West African households, household resource allocations were not Pareto efficient. This paper argues that observation of the Pareto inefficiency of a household resource allocation does not however refute the hypothesis that it chooses this resource allocation as if it maximises some form of household welfare function possessing the Pareto property. To refute that hypothesis it is necessary to show that the observed allocation does not represent a second best optimum. For this it will be necessary to show that the estimated parameters of the model lie in a region of the parameter space for which the second best optimality of the allocation does not hold
Household models an historical perspective by Patricia Apps( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
This paper is a survey of the literature on theoretical models of the household, paying particular attention to some of the earlier contributions, and using them to place the current state of the theory in perspective. One of its aims is to suggest that the literature's neglect of Samuelson's proposal, that households can be modelled as if they maximised a form of social welfare function, was a mistake. However, the idea following directly from the Nash bargaining models, that the household's preference ordering over the utility profiles of its members depends on exogenous variables, in particular wage rates and non-wage incomes, is an important one. Combined with Samuelson's proposal, it can be made the basis for a general approach to modelling household decision taking, flexible enough to encompass non-cooperative behaviour and Pareto inefficiencies arising out of the inevitable incompleteness and unenforceability of domestic agreements. We also point out the importance of household production and some of the implications of its neglect in modelling households. Above all, the aim is to provide a deeper understanding of the current theoretical literature on household economics by means of a survey of its history
