Kieran Maguire looks at the different ways in which professional football operates as a business—how clubs make their money or, more commonly, lose it.

The “gig economy” covers self-employed people who work for hire; those on temporary, short-term contracts; and those on zero-hours contracts. Proponents of flexible working arrangements point to the opportunities the gig economy offers to unlock the potential of those who cannot work full-time and note that technology is changing the nature of work. Opponents fear that it is driven by the corporate need to cut costs and reduce the administrative burden and legal responsibilities that accompany a permanent workforce. $25.00 paper 978-1-788210-05-8 $70.00 cloth 978-1-788210-04-1 2018 192 pages

Oil and Political Survival in the Persian Gulf

A History of the U.S.Saudi Alliance

WINNER, AGAPS BOOK PRIZE, ASSOCIATION FOR GULF AND ARABIAN PENINSULA STUDIES

In Energy Kingdoms, Jim Krane takes readers inside the Gulf monarchies to consider the conundrum facing these states. He traces the history of their energy use and policies, looking in particular at how energy subsidies have distorted demand. Oil exports are the lifeblood of their politicaleconomic systems—and the basis of their strategic importance—but domestic consumption has begun eating into exports while climate change threatens to render the region uninhabitable.

Victor McFarland challenges the view that the U.S.-Saudi alliance is the inevitable consequence of American energy demand and Saudi Arabia’s huge oil reserves. Oil Powers traces the growth of the alliance through a dense web of political, economic, and social connections that bolstered royal and executive power and the nationalsecurity state.

Whatever It Takes

Economic Sanctions Reconsidered [with CD]

Towards a Post-Crisis Europe

George Papaconstantinou

Gary Clyde Hufbauer, Jeffrey J. Schott, Kimberly Ann Elliott, and Barbara Oegg

Europe is at a crossroads: a restructuring at the very least, if not a new settlement of power, is in the cards. This book attempts to understand what "post-crisis Europe" will look like, and what the opportunities are to rethink its economic, social, and institutional architecture as well as to address its nagging democratic deficit.

This landmark study, first published in 1985, delves into the rich experience of sanctions in the twentieth century to harvest lessons on how to use sanctions more effectively. This is the updated third edition of this widely cited study. The authors’ unique database on sanctions now covers almost 200 case studies.

The Demand for Health

Degrowth

Giorgos Kallis

A Theoretical and Empirical Investigation Michael Grossman

Giorgos Kallis summarizes the core elements of degrowth, a critique of the idea (and ideology) of economic growth. Kallis grounds degrowth squarely within the field of ecological economics and, in addition to outlining its key ideas, explores what it would take for an economy to transition to a position that enabled it to prosper without growth.

A seminal work in health economics first published in 1972, Michael Grossman’s The Demand for Health introduced a new theoretical model for determining the health status of the population. His work uniquely synthesized economic and public-health knowledge and has catalyzed a vastly influential body of health-economics literature. $20.00 / £16.99 paper 978-0-231-179010-3

With Robert M. Solow and Michael Woodford

Paul Milgrom describes how auctions can be used to discover prices and guide efficient resource allocations. Milgrom roots his new theories in real-world examples (including the ambitious U.S. incentive auction of radio frequencies, whose design he led) and provides economists with crucial new tools for solving complex resource-allocation problems.

To understand how countries grow and develop, it is essential to know how they learn and become more productive and what government can do to promote learning. In Creating a Learning Society, Joseph E. Stiglitz and Bruce C. Greenwald cast light on the significance of this insight for economic theory and policy.
