HIGHLIGHT Manias, Panics and Crashes A History of Financial Crises 6th edition Charles P. Kindleberger, formerly Ford Professor of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA and Robert Z. Aliber, Professor of International Economics and Finance, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, USA

Please use the following ISBNs to order all titles in the series: Hardback: 978-1-4039-0172-9 Paperback: 978-1-4039-0173-6

‘Underneath the hilarious anecdotes, the elegant epigrams, and the graceful turns of phrase, Kindleberger is deadly serious. The manner in which humans beings earn their livings is no laughing matter to him, especially when they attempt to do so at the expense of one another. As he so effectively demonstrates, manias, panics, and crashes are the consequence of an economic environment that cultivates cupidity, chicanery, and rapaciousness rather than a devout belief in the Golden Rule.’ - From the Foreword to the Fourth Edition by Peter L. Bernstein, author of The Power of Gold ‘Deep knowledge and a pragmatic approach to financial history qualifies Robert Aliber to provide this desperately needed sixth edition of Charles Kindleberger’s classic study of financial manias and crashes. Read. Learn. Weep.’ - Martin Wolf, Financial Times ‘An easily accessible book, filled with fascinating historical vignettes, and one that everyone from the experts to newcomers to the field should read and would profit greatly by doing so.’ - Charles Goodhart, London School of Economics, UK ‘Every so often financial markets fly off the rails of rationality. Manias, Panics and Crashes brilliantly explains these crises and warns us that as each one fades into the past, the lessons are eventually lost, and investors again come to believe that trees grow to the sky.’ - David Laibson, Harvard University, USA This highly anticipated sixth edition has been revised to include an in-depth analysis of the first global crisis of the twenty-first century. Providing a scholarly and entertaining account of such topics as the history of crises, speculative manias and Lehman Brothers, this book has been hailed as ‘a true classic... both timely and timeless.’ Contents: Foreword; R.M.

HIGHLIGHT

A Look at National Interest versus Globalization

Fighting Financial Fires An IMF Insider Account Onno de Beaufort Wijnholds, formerly Executive Director, International Monetary Fund and formerly Representative of the European Central Bank, USA

‘The International Monetary Fund is considered to be the fireman of the international financial and monetary system. Onno de Beaufort Wijnholds is both a close witness and outstanding expert of the Fund’s role during the Global Financial Crisis and very well positioned to analyse and discuss it. Therefore, this book is essential and obligatory reading for academics and students, as well as policymakers and practioners interested in these aspects.’ - Sylvester Eijffinger, Tilburg University, The Netherlands, CEPR and CESifo ‘At last we have a book by an insider, Onno de Beaufort Wijnholds, who as Executive Director at the IMF for eight years, took part in ‘Fighting Financial Fires,’ the apt title of his book...This well-written book contains valuable insights and balanced judgments that make it a must-read for both policy makers and students of international finance.’ - Robert Mundell, University Professor and Nobel Laureate, Columbia University, USA A topical insider view of causes and consequences of financial crises since the Mexican collapse of 1995. The book includes a detailed exploration of recent and ongoing firestorms, including the near meltdown of the global financial system and the euro crisis and suggests ways to save the international financial and monetary system.

Foreword by Nouriel Roubini

'Michael Moran understands what few Americans do: that we have reached a tipping point in global history that will fundamentally change the planet... America will find it very difficult to adjust to its new place as a peer, rather than a dominant nation.’ - From the Foreword by Nouriel Roubini, Chairman and Founder, Roubini Global Economics

Globalization, Hegemony and the Future of the City of London

‘This is a splendid piece of scholarship, finely written, exhaustively researched, and interpretively bold. With his emphasis upon the symbiotic relationship of economics and politics, Boyce sees in the late 1920s the real beginnings of the drift toward a new war, and the Anglo-Americans as especially important players in that slow-motion collapse.’ Robert J. Young, University of Winnipeg, Canada Challenging the standard narrative, this account, updated for the paperback edition, establishes the causal relationship between the global political and economic crises of the interwar period, and offers a new look at the role of ideology, racism and the leading liberal powers in the events between the First and Second World Wars.

‘Plundered Nations is a very important book at a crucial time. It lays out the values, principles, and competences needed to transform resource wealth into a sustainable improvement in the lives of present and future generations. A series of insightful case studies on a range of countries make these principles vivid, concrete and accessible. This book will be widely read and highly influential in accelerating the transformation of natural resource wealth management.’ - Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate This book consists of eight case studies investigating the political economy of the decision chain involved in natural resource extraction in resource-rich countries, where plunder rather than prosperity has become the norm. Some case studies reveal successes, while others show the decision chain to have failed disastrously.

Economies in Transition The Long-Run View Edited by Gérard Roland, Professor of Economics and Political Science, University of California, Berkeley, USA

How China Became Capitalist Ronald Coase, Nobel Laureate in Economics, Clifton R. Musser Professor Emeritus of Economics, University of Chicago Law School, and Research Advisor, Ronald Coase Institute, USA and founder, Ronald Coase Center for the Study of the Economy, Zhejiang University, China and Ning Wang, Assistant Professor, School of Politics and Global Studies, Arizona State University, USA '...a major contribution to the whole literature on economic change as well as on China. Nowhere in all of the literature on economic change and development that I know is there such a detailed study of the fumbling efforts of a society to evolve and particularly one that had as long and as far to go as China did.’ - Douglass C. North, 1993 Nobel laureate in Economics ‘This book is one of the greatest works in economics and in studies of China, not only for today, but for the future.’ - Chenggang Xu, University of Hong Kong ‘Ronald Coase, now 100 years plus, and Ning Wang have written a compelling and exhaustive commentary about China’s fitful transition from Socialism under Mao to today’s distinctive capitalist economy.’ - Richard Epstein, University of Chicago Law School, USA ‘Coase finds a nation whose philosophy and policy have reflected the same simple principle - “seeking truth from facts” - that has inspired his own path-breaking analyses of firms, markets and law. A fascinating and exceptionally thoughtprovoking account of how China, repeatedly seeking more efficient socialism, found itself turning capitalist.’ - Stephen Littlechild, Emeritus Professor, University of Birmingham, UK and Fellow, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK This book examines the extraordinary events that led to China’s transformation from a closed agrarian socialist economy to a powerful economic force in the international arena.

The Challenge for Asia Edited by Louis AugustinJean, Associate Professor, University of Tsukuba, Japan, Hélène Ilbert, Professor of International Economics, CIHEAM-IAM-M, France and Neantro Saavedra-Rivano, Professor, Institute of Policy and Planning Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Japan

In this volume, some of the leading scholars on China’s development examine China’s responses to the global financial crisis and their implications for China’s economy, society, and the international balances of power.

Food safety concerns have boosted the Asian demand for quality food in general and products of geographical indications in particular. This book shows how Asian countries are empowering regions and enterprises involved in differentiation strategies, and the effects that this regulation can have.

Bongiovanni, holds an MBA from Harvard University, USA and a doctorate in engineering; formerly an Investment Banker in Wall Street and London, he subsequently worked in private equity, as an international advisor and as an entrepreneur; and Knight of the Order of St Charles 'In The Decline and Fall of Europe, Francesco Bongiovanni offers the most perceptive account to date of a Europe that indulged too many illusions and is now awakening to bankruptcy.’ - Bret Stephens, Wall Street Journal ‘An important read for anyone interested in the future of Europe.’ - John Paulson, President, Paulson & Co.

HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT

Economic Methodology

Marx’s Theory of Price and its Modern Rivals

Understanding Economics as a Science Marcel Boumans, Associate Professor and John Davis, Professor, both at University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Like other sciences, the study of economics has been shaped by rigorous arguments and debates that continue to influence economists today. In this fascinating introduction, Boumans and Davis consider the scientific nature of the methods, logic, and forms of explanation that underlie economics as a discipline. Contents: The Received View of Science / Axiomatization / Models / Formalism / Methodologies of Positive Economics / Methodologies before Friedman / Measurement / Experiments / Popper’s Logic of Discovery / The Duhem-Quine Thesis / Popper’s Situational Analysis / Testing / Kuhn and Lakatos / Research Programs in Economics / Scientific Revolutions in Economics? / Facts / The Sociology of Scientific Knowledge / Economics as a Discipline / Case Study Research / Feminist Philosophy of Science and Feminist Political Economy / Rhetoric, Postmodernism, and Pluralism / Analogy and Metaphor / Paul Feyerabend / Realism and Causal Explanation in Economics / Value Judgements in Economics / Logical Positivism and Ordinalist Utility Theory / Neutral Science? / Naturalistic Legitimation / Glossary March 2010 224pp 246x171mm 2 b/w tables and 3 b/w line drawings Paperback £26.99 978-0-230-21813-0 http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=301523

Howard Nicholas, International Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, The Netherlands and formerly advisor to the Ministry of Policy Planning, Sri Lanka, and headed the UNDP’s study of the Macroeconomics of Poverty Alleviation in Sri Lanka from 2002-3

'...a precious work.’ - Vickramabahu Karunaratne, Sri Lanka Guardian Marx’s Theory of Price and its Modern Rivals provides an original look at how Marx understood the role of money, extending his theory to consider how prices move over the course of business cycles. Key modern theories of price are also analysed; Neoclassical, Post Keynesian and Sraffian theories are contrasted with Marxian thought.

Great Thinkers in Economics Series Series Editor: A.P. Thirlwall The famous historian, E.H. Carr once said that in order to understand history it is necessary to understand the historian writing it. The same could be said of economics. Famous economists often remark that specific episodes in their lives, or particular events that took place in their formative years attracted them to economics. This new series Great Thinkers in Economics is designed to illuminate the economics of some of the great historical and contemporary economists by exploring the interaction between their lives and work, and the events surrounding them.

Joseph A. Schumpeter A Theory of Social and Economic Evolution Esben Sloth Andersen, Aalborg University, Denmark

This book examines Schumpeter’s dramatic theory of social and economic evolution as the pivot of his life and work, resolving apparent paradoxes and clarifying Schumpeter’s challenges to economists and other social scientists.

Contents: Introduction / Marx on Price in the Simple Circulation of Commodities / Marx on Price in Capitalism / Marx on Smith and Ricardo / Marxist Interpretations of Marx’s Theory of Price / The Neoclassical Theory of Price  / Post Keynesian Theory of Price / Sraffa’s Theory of Price  / Concluding Remarks  October 2011 Hardback

HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT · REFERENCE

John Maynard Keynes Paul Davidson, New School for Social Research, Bernard Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis, USA

‘This could be the best one-volume treatment of Keynes’s economics since Keynes himself. Clear, logical and faithful...’ - James K. Galbraith, University of Texas at Austin, USA and Levy Economic Institute, USA ‘Although Keynes is no longer with us, this book is the next best thing. Paul Davidson is the leading expert on Keynes and Keynesianism and his book should be read by anybody who wants to understand the world as it is, rather than as the economic text books say it ought to be.’ - Larry Elliott, Economics Editor, The Guardian This book looks at the life of Keynes leading up to the writing of his seminal General Theory, examines the General Theory in detail and explores how it differs from classical theory. The impact of Keynes’s work on the economy post-war and up to the present day is also assessed.

United Kingdom Balance of Payments 2011

The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Edited by Steven N. Durlauf, University of Wisconsin, USA and Lawrence E. Blume, Cornell University, USA

‘Much has changed in the latest incarnation of this dictionary...More than 1,500 economists contributed almost 1,900 signed entries; more than 1,000 of the entries are new or ‘heavily revised’ and expanded. Along with the descriptions of economic method from earlier editions, this edition includes much information on ‘what those methods have found.’ It also offers new emphasis on advances that have occurred in microeconomics, Bayesian theory, game theory, and behavioral, international, and experimental economics...A regularly updated online version of the dictionary is available www.dictionaryofeconomics.com, with site license pricing based on institution type and FTE. Summing Up: Highly recommended.’ - Choice Reviews of the first edition: ‘In a class of its own...The dictionary does everything which one would hope of a successor to the original Palgrave dictionary. There will be no competitor for many decades.’ The Guardian ‘This will be the standard reference work on economics until well into the next century.’ - The World Economy ‘The list of contributors reads like a who’s who in economics. The range of topics is breathtaking. The choice of topics is excellent...It is overwhelmingly impressive...a very high quality product that is also unique.’ - Martin L. Weitzman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA ‘To attempt such an undertaking was audacious, to have carried it out is astonishing, and to have done so with so remarkable a list of authors is a tribute to the intelligence and diligence of the editors.’ - Alan S. Blinder, Princeton University, USA ‘An indispensable reference tool for both junior and senior scholars in economics and perhaps even more for the journalist or business executive. The topics are exhaustive.’ - Kenneth J. Arrow, Nobel Prize Winner in Economics
