Global transition a general theory of economic development by G. D Snooks ( )
16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Global Transition is an innovative study that analyses the problems and prospects of the Third World by building on the theoretical contribution - the dynamic-strategy model - made in the author's acclaimed Longrun Dynamics (1998). It formulates a general economic and political theory of development that he calls the global strategic transition (GST) model. The GST is the process by which an increasing number of societies are drawn into the vortex of dynamic interaction between the world's most economically advanced nations. The central feature of this model is the global strategic demand-response mechanism involving an interaction between the world's expanding strategic core and its economic fringe, which is facilitated through strategic inflation. In this model the familiar production function and technological change are replaced with the novel strategy function and strategic change. This model also provides the basis for a new policy approach to economic development

The global crisis makers : an end to progress and liberty? by G. D Snooks ( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Global Crisis Makers is a highly original and provocative study that will be of vital interest to readers world-wide who are concerned about the future of Western civilization. Graeme Snooks argues that we should not be diverted by the so-called East Asian 'meltdown', which is a predictable outcome of global dynamics. Of real concern, however, is that 'hidden crisis' which has been inadvertently engineered by neoliberal economists who dominate the world's financial institutions. They are the global crisis makers, who have convinced governments to abandon strategic leadership and to impose crippling deflationary policies. This endangers the progress of the Western world, by causing a slowdown in economic growth and employment; and its liberty, by causing the frustrated strategists to turn increasingly to the radical right. By again employing the innovative theoretical and empirical work used in his recent books, Professor Snooks shows how the threat to progress and liberty can be overcome

9 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Longrun dynamics : a general economic and political theory by G. D Snooks ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the first edition of Longrun Dynamics was completed for publication in 1997, economic experts were warning that the greatest danger facing the Western world was rampant inflation. They recommended tight monetary control by central banks to reduce inflation to zero, and tight fiscal control by governments to transform budget deficits into surpluses. This book claims they were tragically mistaken. The general dynamic theory developed in Longrun Dynamics by Graeme Snooks shows why these policies will not work. It is also argued that, if the West continues to enforce neoliberal policies, there certainly will be a global crisis, but that it will be one of deflation rather than inflation. This is demonstrated by Snooks through his ground-breaking dynamic-strategy theory - centred on the concept of strategic demand - which shows that inflation is essential to longrun growth. It receives empirical support from his discovery of the growth/inflation curve. Today there is growing recognition of the dangers of deflation, but inflation is still regarded as the 'real enemy', and neoliberal policies are still universally employed. Global crisis, therefore, remains a dangerous possibility
The collapse of Darwinism, or, The rise of a realist theory of life by G. D Snooks ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The resultant realist theory posits life as a strategic pursuit (rather than a game of chance) in which organisms adopt dynamic strategies (only one of which is genetic change) to survive and prosper. Organisms' and species' progress is achieved through "strategic selection" - a concept that displaces the 'divine selection" of creationists and the "natural selection" of Darwinists. This new theory reveals the organism as empowered, rather than as the plaything of gods, genes, or blind chance; and it provides a new basis for humanism."--BOOK JACKET
