Social foundations of markets, money, and credit by Costas Lapavitsas( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the difference between money and capital? Is anti-globalization necessarily anti-money? These points and many more are debated and dealt with in "Social Foundations of Markets, Money and Credit". The book examines the case that the capitalist economy is permeated with non-economic relations that flow from the exploitative relations of production. Lapavitsas shows that markets have one aspect in common: money - and critically analyses all aspects of this slippery concept. This book should interest and inform students and researchers not only in economics, but also in sociology and anthropology. Well-informed critics of capitalism should also find it to be useful

Because their economies were regulated, their financial systems ' repressed' and their states interventionist, for many years the countries of East Asia challenged the Washington consensus, offering an alternative development paradigm. However, in the 1990' s, Asian capitalism was disrupted following Japan' s stagnation and the financial crisis of 1997-98. Treading the unexplored theoretical terrain created by the simultaneous decline of the Washington Consensus and Asian developmentalism, this revealing book analyzes the

Political economy of money and finance by Makoto Itō( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To explain the pronounced instability of the world economy since the 1970s, the book offers an important and systematic theoretical examination of money and finance. It re-examines the classical foundations of political economy and the creator of money. It assesses all of the important theoretical schools since then, including Marxist, Keynesian, post-Keynesian and monetarist thinkers. By presenting important insights from Japanese political economy previously ignored in Anglo-Saxon economics, the authors make a significant contribution to radical political economy based on a thorough historical analysis of capitalism

Profiting without producing : how finance exploits us all by Costas Lapavitsas( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Financialization is one of the most innovative concepts to emerge in the field of political economy during the last three decades, although there is no agreement on what exactly it is. Profiting Without Producing puts forth a distinctive view defining financialization in terms of the fundamental conduct of non-financial enterprises, banks and households. Its most prominent feature is the rise of financial profit, in part extracted from households through financial expropriation. Financialized capitalism is also prone to crises, none greater than the gigantic turmoil that began in 2007. Using abundant empirical data, the book establishes the causes of the crisis and discusses the options broadly available for controlling finance"--
Against the troika : crisis and austerity in the Eurozone by Heiner Flassbeck( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the 25th January 2015, the Greek people voted in an election of historic importance--not just for Greece but potentially all of Europe. The radical party Syriza was elected and austerity and the neoliberal agenda challenged. Suddenly it seems as if there is an alternative. But what? The Eurozone is in a deep and prolonged crisis. It is now clear that monetary union is a historic failure, beyond repair--and certainly not in the interests of Europe's working people. Building on the economic analysis of two of Europe's leading thinkers, Heiner Flassbeck and Costas Lapavitsas (now a Syriza member of parliament), Against the Troika is the first book to propose a strategic left-wing plan for how peripheral countries could exit the euro. With a change in government in Greece, and looming political transformations in countries such as Spain, this major intervention lays out a radical, anti-capitalist programme at a critical juncture for Europe. The final three chapters offer a detailed postmortem of the Greek catastrophe, explain what can be learned from it--and provide a possible alternative. Against the is a practical blueprint for real change in a continent wracked by crisis and austerity"--Back cover

Contra la troika : crisis y austeridad en la eurozona by Costas Lapavitsas( )

7 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al tomar el poder Syriza en Grecia, por fin una alternativa radicalmente anticapitalista se enfrentó a la austeridad de la eurozona. El 25 de enero de 2015 los griegos votaron en unas elecciones de relevancia histórica no sólo para Grecia, sino, potencialmente, para toda Europa. El triunfo del partido radical Syriza supone un desafío frente a la austeridad y la agenda neoliberal; de repente es como si, después de todo, hubiese una alternativa. ¿Pero cuál? La eurozona atraviesa una crisis profunda y prolongada. Pocas dudas quedan ahora de que la unión monetaria constituye un fracaso histórico sin paliativos --y, desde luego, no beneficia a los trabajadores europeos en absoluto. Con base en el análisis económico de dos de los principales pensadores de Europa, Heiner Flassbeck y Costas Lapavitsas (quien concurrió a las recientes elecciones en la lista de Syriza), Contra la troika es el primer libro que plantea desde la izquierda un plan estratégico de salida del euro para los países periféricos
Nur Deutschland kann den Euro retten der letzte Akt beginnt by Heiner Flassbeck( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nur Deutschland kann die Eurozone retten, weil nur über Lohnerhöhungen hier die Lücke in der Wettbewerbsfähigkeit geschlossen werden kann, ohne Europa noch tiefer in Depression und Deflation zu treiben. Begreift Deutschland nicht, dass es sich selbst ändern muss, ist das Schicksal des gemeinsamen Geldes besiegelt. Deutschland kommt seit einigen Jahren in Europa eine enorme Macht zu. Eine Macht, die vor allem durch Lohnsenkungen im eigenen Land erkauft wurde und die letztlich zu der großen Krise des Euro führte, die auch heute nicht überwunden ist. Sparpolitik und Lohnkürzungen, die den Schuldnerländern vom Gläubigerland Deutschland aufgezwungen wurde, haben in ganz Südeuropa und insbesondere in Griechenland eine große Rezession ausgelöst und die Idee eines gemeinsamen>>europäischen Projekts<<ausgelöscht. Angesichts des deutschen Widerstandes gegen jede Änderung des Kurses sowie der nationalistischen Gefahren, die diese Haltung in vielen europäischen Ländern provoziert, dürfen die Warnungen von Flassbeck und Lapavitsas nicht ignoriert werden

Because their economies were regulated, their financial systems 'repressed' and their states interventionist, for many years the countries of East Asia challenged the Washington consensus, offering an alternative development paradigm. However, in the 1990's, Asian capitalism was disrupted following Japan's stagnation and the financial crisis of 1997-98.

Divided into four key sections, it covers: Theoretical Framework Results of Globalization Converging and Diverging of Paths of Economic Development Finance and Regionalism. Through the juxtaposition of countries in East Asia and Latin America, leading academics analyze the impact of government intervention, institutional malfunction, social transformation and financial change as well as conflict and power on economic development.

Political Economy of Money and Finance( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pronounced instability has characterised the capitalist world economy since the early 1970s, much of it originating in the mechanisms of money and finance. Several different government policies have failed to restore harmony, often appearing to exacerbate economic instability. This volume argues that monetary and financial instability has its roots in capitalist production and trade themselves, as well as in the defects of the mechanisms of money and finance. Thus, no mix of policies can fully establish monetary and financial harmony, though different policies can significantly amerliorate or worsen instability. To sustain its central claim, the book re-examines the historical and logical origin of money, the creation of interest-bearing capital, the spontaneous emergence of a capitalist credit system, the mechanism of capitalist crises, and the nature and functions of central banks. Further support is provided by the systematic examination of the monetary and financial analysis of all of the important schools of thought, including Classical political economy, Marxism, Keynesianism, Post-keynesianism and monetarism. The authors' ability to present important insights from Japanese political economy, not previously discussed in Anglo-Saxon economies, makes this a highly significant work in radial political economy, offering a systematic and up-to-date Marxist analysis
