Microfoundations : the compatibility of microeconomics and macroeconomics by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

35 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length survey of current work which examines the compatibility of microeconomics and macroeconomics. Its particular distinction is that it makes accessible, to non-specialists, those extensive modern refinements of general equilibrium theory which are linked to macroeconomics and monetary theory. Part I traces the development and interlocking nature of two scientific research prgrams, macroeconomics and neo-Walrasian analysis. The five chapters in this part examine general equilibrium theory, Keynes' contribution, the 'neoclassical synthesis', and the Clower-Leijonhufvud contributions to questions of systemic coordination. The four chapters of Part II place recent work on the micro-foundations of macroeconomics within a taxonomic scheme of Walrasian equilibrium, Walrasian disequilibrium, Edgeworthian equilibrium, and Edgeworthian disequilibrium. Part III, a single chapter, provides an overview of the subject and ventures some conclusions

Mathematics for economists : an integrated approach by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

24 editions published between 1982 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one's understanding of functions, relationships, and variables becomes richer and more detailed, one's ability to provide explanations for economic phenomena becomes stronger and more sophisticated. Here, the author encourages the student's geometric intuition of the mathematical results
How economics became a mathematical science by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In How Economics Became a Mathematical Science E. Roy Weintraub traces the history of economics through the prism of the history of mathematics in the twentieth century. As mathematics has evolved, so has the image of mathematics, explains Weintraub, such as ideas about the standards for accepting proof, the meaning of rigor, and the nature of the mathematical enterprise itself. He also shows how economics itself has been shaped by economists' changing images of mathematics. Whereas others (most recently Philip Mirowski) have viewed economics in the context of physics, Weintraub presents a different picture, one in which changes in mathematics-both within the body of knowledge that constitutes mathematics and in how mathematics is thought of as a discipline and as a type of knowledge-have been intertwined with the evolution of economic thought. Weintraub begins his account with Cambridge University, the intellectual birthplace of modern economics, and examines specifically Alfred Marshall and the Mathematical Tripos examinations - tests in mathematics that were required of all who wished to study economics at Cambridge. He then interrogates the idea of a rigorous mathematical economics through the connection of the American economist Griffith Conrad Evans with the Italian mathematician Vito Volterra and moves on to the role of David Hilbert and how the mathematical issues of formalism and axiomatization played out in economics. Finally, the social and intellectual history becomes a personal history that reconstructs the career of the economist Sidney Weintraub, whose relationship to mathematics is viewed through his relationships with his mathematician brother, Hal, and his mathematician-economist son, the book's author. A major study of the mathematization of economics, this work will interest economists, mathematicians, philosophers and historians of science, sociologists of science, and science studies scholars
General equilibrium analysis : studies in appraisal by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 1993 in English and German and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Finding equilibrium : Arrow, Debreu, McKenzie and the problem of scientific credit by Till Düppe( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Finding Equilibrium explores the post-World War II transformation of economics by constructing a history of the proof of its central dogma--that a competitive market economy may possess a set of equilibrium prices. The model economy for which the theorem could be proved was mapped out in 1954 by Kenneth Arrow and Gerard Debreu collaboratively, and by Lionel McKenzie separately, and would become widely known as the "Arrow-Debreu Model." While Arrow and Debreu would later go on to win separate Nobel prizes in economics, McKenzie would never receive it. Till Düppe and E. Roy Weintraub explore the lives and work of these economists and the issues of scientific credit against the extraordinary backdrop of overlapping research communities and an economics discipline that was shifting dramatically to mathematical modes of expression. Based on recently opened archives, Finding Equilibrium shows the complex interplay between each man's personal life and work, and examines compelling ideas about scientific credit, publication, regard for different research institutions, and the awarding of Nobel prizes. Instead of asking whether recognition was rightly or wrongly given, and who were the heroes or villains, the book considers attitudes toward intellectual credit and strategies to gain it vis-à-vis the communities that grant it. Telling the story behind the proof of the central theorem in economics, Finding Equilibrium sheds light on the changing nature of the scientific community and the critical connections between the personal and public rewards of scientific work"--
Stabilizing dynamics : constructing economic knowledge by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is concerned with the ways in which the talk of the 1930s evolved into technical analysis of some mathematical structures. It describes the context for the history of that change and shows how the history of modern economics can be seen as a confluence of several disparate traditions
The future of the history of economics : Annual supplement to volume 39, History of Political Economy by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The age of the contemplative economist-scholar at home equally in classical languages, economic history, the history of ideas, and mathematical theory, has passed. The history of economics as a subdiscipline has lost touch with the mainstream study of economics. In "The Future of the History of Economics", internationally known scholars from ten countries provide a comparative assessment of the subdiscipline. The 26 chapters address different national traditions, journals, professional meetings, graduate and undergraduate education, the socialization of new members of the disciplinary community, economic heterodoxy, and connections to other scholarly communities

Keynes, Keynesians, and Monetarists by Sidney Weintraub( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New disorders require new polices, says economist Sidney Weintraub. In this book he draws together many of his shorter writings to deal with economic problems that have defied orthodox monetary and fiscal remedies. Weintraub has long been noted for his vigorous criticism of both monetarist and Keynesian schools of thought for their failure to cope with disorders in our economy involving unemployment and inflation. Keynes, Keynesians, and Monetarists contains the original article on TIP, written in collaboration with Henry Wallich, outlining a tax-based incomes policy to combat inflation in an era of unemployment. This essay has been the focus of extended discussion in official quarters, among economics and in the public press

MIT and the transformation of American economics by E. Roy Weintraub( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seeks to remedy the historians' neglect of the influential and luminary economics department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The department, bolstered by an influx of innovative young scholars, was one of the most distinguished research economics departments in North America by the late 1950s. In another decade it would become the most highly regarded economics department in the world. This volume documents the history of this process and the ways in which MIT's rise to prominence coincided with the remarkable transformation of American economics in the postwar period. Many developments influenced this history: the Keynesian revolution, the emergent technical nature of economics, the Cold War, the international hold of American economics, the GI Bill, and MIT's openness to Jewish economists."--Publisher's web site
A contemporary historiography of economics( )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the focus of historians of economic thought has changed to also include the ideas and practices of contemporary economists. This has opened up new questions regarding the utilization of sources, choice of method, narrative styles, and ethical issues, as well as a new awareness of the historian's place, role, and task. 0This book brings together leading contributors to provide, for the first time, a methodological overview of the historiography of economics. Emphasising the quality of the scholarship of recent decades, the book seeks to provide research tools for future historians of economic thought, as well as to any historians of social science with an interest in historiographic issues
