History of the Future of Economic Growth: Historical Roots of Current Debates on Sustainable Degrowth

Iris Borowy

History of the Future of Economic Growth: Historical Roots of Current Debates on Sustainable Degrowth by Iris Borowy

The future of economic growth is one of the decisive questions of the twenty-first century. Alarmed by declining growth rates in industrialized countries, climate change, and rising socio-economic inequalities, among other challenges, more and more people demand to look for alternatives beyond growth. However, so far these current debates about sustainability, post-growth or degrowth lack a thorough historical perspective.

This edited volume brings together original contributions on different aspects of the history of economic growth as a central and near-ubiquitous tenet of developmental strategies....

The Breakdown of Capitalism: A History of the Idea in Western Marxism, 1883-1983

F. R. Hansen

The Breakdown of Capitalism: A History of the Idea in Western Marxism, 1883-1983 by F. R. HansenThis comprehensive and lucid study, first published in 1985, reconstructs the history of Western Marxist theories of the breakdown of capitalism. It provides a critical reading of theories of breakdown, with their conflicting interpretations of a single text, their invulnerability to empirical defeat, and their retreat from class analysis, as events in the history of ideas. This study traces the sources of theoretical conflict in a series of historical and epistemological issues that shift over time and generate new conditions for speculations concerning the fate of the system. In seeking to...

The Global Free Trade Error: The Infeasibility of Ricardo's Comparative Advantage Theory

Ron Baiman

The Global Free Trade Error: The Infeasibility of Ricardo's Comparative Advantage Theory by Ron Baiman

The doctrine of "free trade" is second only to that of "free markets" in undergirding ideological support for our current global economic structures and rules. From David Ricardo's "comparative advantage principle" to James Meade's Neoclassical or mainstream economics proof of self-adjusting free trade equilibrium, the free trade doctrine has had a lasting and destructive hold on Neoclassical economic thinking since its inception.

The Global Free Trade Error provides a detailed analysis of these foundational models and counter-poses these to alternative Neo-Marxist "unequal exchange" models of...

Australians in Shanghai: Race, Rights and Nation in Treaty Port China

Sophie Loy-Wilson

Australians in Shanghai: Race, Rights and Nation in Treaty Port China by Sophie Loy-Wilson

In the first half of the twentieth century, a diverse community of Australians settled in Shanghai. There they forged a 'China trade', circulating goods, people and ideas across the South China Sea, from Shanghai and Hong Kong to Sydney and Melbourne. This trade has been largely forgotten in contemporary Australia, where future economic ties trump historical memory when it comes to popular perceptions of China. After the First World War, Australians turned to Chinese treaty ports, fleeing poverty and unemployment, while others sought to 'save' China through missionary work and socialist ideas....

Business Cycles in Economic Thought: A history

Alain Alcouffe

Business Cycles in Economic Thought: A history by Alain Alcouffe

Business Cycles in Economic Thought underlines how, over the time span of two centuries, economic thought interacted with cycles in a continuous renewal of theories and rethinking of policies, whilst economic actions embedded themselves into past economic thought.

This book argues that studying crises and periods of growth in different European countries will help to understand how different national, political and cultural traditions influenced the complex interaction of economic cycles and economic theorizing. The editors of this great volume bring together expert contributors consisting of...
