Tue, 2012-09-11 11:22   -   (0) comments

“Clear, comprehensive, and brimming with provocative insights, this new book by Richard Wolff and Stephen Resnick is a much-needed presentation of the three theories—neoclassical, Keynesian, and Marxist—that make up the contested terrain of contemporary economics.

Anyone wishing to understand the modern international monetary system will profit greatly from reading Klein and Shambaugh's unique synthesis.” —Maurice Obstfeld, Department of Economists, University of California, Berkeley

"Rational Choice" by Itzhak Gilboa
Tue, 2012-09-11 11:43   -   (0) comments

Rational Choice provides a clear and non-technical introduction to the theory of rational individual decision making, as well as brief looks at game theory, social choice, and market equilibrium.  The book is particularly strong in its treatment of risk and uncertainty, where it combines lucid descriptions of the standard theory with some discussion of its limitations. Highly recommended!”
Drew Fudenberg, Department of Economics, Harvard University

"Is Behavioral Economics Doomed?: The Ordinary versus the Extraordinary" by David K. Levine
Mon, 2012-09-24 16:17   -   (0) comments

"...Drawing on his wide knowledge of the whole field of economic endeavor and almost never resorting to equations, Levine demonstrates that mainstream economics is not the narrow sectarian failure of common repute. Nor are the more ambitious claims that behavioralists make for the economic applications of their theories founded on anything genuinely robust.--- Ken Bimore, University College London
