The Age of Stagnation: Why Perpetual Growth is Unattainable and the Global Economy is in Peril

The Age of Stagnation: Why Perpetual Growth is Unattainable and the Global Economy is in Peril by Satyajit DasThe global economy is entering an era of protracted stagnation, similar to what Japan has experienced for over a decade. That is the message of this brilliant and controversial summary of our current economic predicament from an internationally respected consultant and commentator on financial markets, who predicted the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The author challenges the assumption that growth can be perpetual and questions the ability of political leaders to enact the tough structural changes needed. He is particularly critical of the "easy money" approach to dealing with the great recession...

Understanding the Growth Slowdown

Understanding the Growth Slowdown by Brink LindseyCompanies and industries rise and fall...fortunes are made and lost...jobs are created and destroyed by the millions. These are the headline-grabbing dramas of modern economic life. But, residing beneath the booms and busts is a more deeply consequential drama: the long-term growth of real gross domestic product (GDP). Often only apparent years after happening, shifts in long term growth rates are as momentous as they are subtle.
This new ebook examines the gathering evidence, in the wake of the great recession of 2008, that we are in the midst of one of these profound shifts. The disappointing...

The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living since the Civil War

The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living since the Civil War by Robert J. Gordon

In the century after the Civil War, an economic revolution improved the American standard of living in ways previously unimaginable.

With medical advances, life expectancy between 1870 and 1970 grew from forty-five to seventy-two years. Weaving together a vivid narrative, historical anecdotes, and economic analysis, The Rise and Fall of American Growth provides an in-depth account of this momentous era. But has that era of unprecedented growth...

Income Inequality: Why It Matters and Why Most Economists Didn't Notice

Income Inequality: Why It Matters and Why Most Economists Didn't Notice by Matthew P. DrennanPrevailing economic theory attributes the 2008 crash and the Great Recession that followed to low interest rates, relaxed borrowing standards, and the housing price bubble. After careful analyses of statistical evidence, however, Matthew Drennan discovered that income inequality was the decisive factor behind the crisis. Pressured to keep up consumption in the face of flat or declining incomes, Americans leveraged their home equity to take on excessive debt. The collapse of the housing market left this debt unsupported, causing a domino effect throughout the economy. Drennan also found startling...

Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy: An Agenda for Growth and Shared Prosperity

Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy: An Agenda for Growth and Shared Prosperity by Joseph E. Stiglitz

It's time to rewrite the rules—to curb the runaway flow of wealth to the top one percent, to restore security and opportunity for the middle class, and to foster stronger growth rooted in broadly shared prosperity.

Inequality is a choice.

The United States bills itself as the land of opportunity, a place where anyone can achieve success and a better life through hard work and determination. But the facts tell a different story—the U.S. today lags behind most other developed nations in measures of inequality and economic mobility. For decades, wages have stagnated for the majority of workers while...

Essays on a Mature Economy: Britain After 1840

Essays on a Mature Economy: Britain After 1840 by Donald N. McCloskey

Debating the promises and limits of the "new economic history," seventeen economists and economic historians look at Great Britain, from the peak of her industrial dominance in 1840 to her eclipse by the surging economies of Germany and the United States. Their discussion brings a new methodological challenge to the field of economic history and a new interpretation of the British economy in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

An Economic Spurt that Failed: Four Lectures in Austrian History

An Economic Spurt that Failed: Four Lectures in Austrian History by Alexander Gerschenkron

In 1900 the newly appointed Austrian prime minister, Ernest von Koerber, initiated a novel program of economic development designed to solve the political and economic problems of the Habsburg Monarchy. Ambitious and ingenious as the plan was, it proved a failure, and in this book Alexander Gerschenkron assesses its career and significance for both Austrian and European history.

The author explains the importance of Koerber's experiment as a way of increasing Austria's economic strength while drawing the country out of divisive political struggles. He ascribes its failure primarily to the obstructionist...

Cuba: From Economic Take-Off to Collapse under Castro by Jorge Salazar-Carrillo & Andro Nodarse-Leon

This book is a study of Cuba's economic development under communism over the last fifty-five years.
