"Невидимая рука" рынка Под редакцией Дж. Итуэлла, М. Милгейта, П. Ньюмена Том из серии тематических сборников, изданных на базе, пожалуй, самого авторитетного и знаменитого энциклопедического издания по экономике - четырехтомного "Словаря по экономике Palgrave", посвящен различным сторонам и аспектам экономической и в целом социальной философии, символом которой является знаменитая метафора Адама Смита. Статьи, представленные в данном издании, не только раскрывают содержание и дают представление об истоках этой метафоры и интеллектуальной среде, в которой она возникла, но и показывают "ее присутствие" в различных областях современного экономического знания, а также социального знания, связанного с экономикой.

Capital in the Twenty-First Century Thomas Piketty, Arthur Goldhammer What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, "Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from twenty countries, ranging as far back as the eighteenth century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality. Piketty shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of...
Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance Nouriel Roubini, Stephen Mihm In this myth-busting book Nouriel Roubini shows that everything we think about economics is wrong. Financial crises are not unpredictable 'black swans', but an inherent part of capitalism. Only by remaking our financial systems to acknowledge this, can we get out of the mess we're in. Will there be another recession, and if so what shape? When will the next bubble occur? And what can we do about it? Here Roubini gives the answers, and lists his commandments for the future.
Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance Nouriel Roubini and Stephen Mihm Nouriel Roubini was right… Roubini warned that there was a monstrous bubble in the housing market and that the bursting of that bubble would cause much of the financial system to collapse. And so it has turned out, with even the most seemingly outlandish of Roubini's predictions matched or even exceeded by reality. How did he do it? For the first decade of his career, Roubini, 51, was a well-regarded but hardly renowned macroeconomist. When the Asian financial crisis struck in 1997, however, he created a Web page - the forerunner of his subscription service, RGE Monitor - that became the go-to place for anyone trying to keep up with the flood of news, data and economic analysis… His warnings are based on sophisticated modeling and careful data analysis and have often proved right - not just in general but in detail… Remember, people dismissed Cassandra's dire prophecies - until they all came true.

Using an unconventional blend of historical analysis with masterful knowledge of global economics, Nouriel Roubini and Stephen Mihm, a journalist and professor of economic history, present a vital and timeless book that proves calamities to be not only predictable but also preventable and, with the right medicine, curable.

Poor Numbers: How We Are Misled by African Development Statistics and What to Do About It Morten Jerven One of the most urgent challenges in African economic development is to devise a strategy for improving statistical capacity. Reliable statistics, including estimates of economic growth rates and per-capita income, are basic to the operation of governments in developing countries and vital to nongovernmental organizations and other entities that provide financial aid to them. Rich countries and international financial institutions such as the World Bank allocate their development resources on the basis of such data. The paucity of accurate statistics is not merely a technical problem; it has a massive impact on the welfare of citizens in developing countries. Where do these statistics originate? How accurate are they? POOR NUMBERS is the first analysis of the production and use of African economic development statistics. Morten Jerven's research shows how the statistical capacities of sub-Saharan African economies have fallen into disarray.
