Demand and Exchange in Economic Analysis provides a combination of detailed analysis of a central area of economics with the history of economic thought. The first part of the book examines major attempts to treat mathematically the partial equilibrium concept of demand conceived as a schedule. The second part, after generalizing Cournot's model of trade in a single good, traces the general equilibrium analysis of exchange. This adds to the concept of a demand curve the fundamental interpretation of the rate of exchange, or price ratio, in terms of the amount of one good offered in return for a unit of another good. The similarity in the treatments of Mill, Whewell, Marshall and Walras is revealed along with the emphasis on multiple equilibria. Edgeworth's grand synthesis and extension of Jevons's approach to exchange is then discussed in detail. The book should be of interest to a wide range of economists interested in placing modern theory in a historical perspective.

Nonlinear Models, Labour Markets and Exchange offers a number of broad introductory surveys in the areas of nonlinear modelling, labour economics and the economic analysis of exchange. This collection of articles consists largely of recently published refereed papers. The early chapters provide an introduction to the analysis of 'chaos and strange attractors' and the use of the very flexible generalised exponential family of frequency distributions in analysing both time series and cross-sectional distributions. The volume then provides syntheses of the theories of internal labour markets, trade union bargaining, and population ageing and its implications. It goes on to survey a range of topics in the broad area of the theory of exchange, which is central to the neoclassical economic model. Finally, the book provides some advice for students who are about to start their first piece of research. It ends with a unique survey of the history of economic analysis. Providing introductory material and syntheses of a wide range of topics, Nonlinear Models, Labour Markets and Exchange will be welcomed by economics academics and researchers interested in labour economics and econometrics.

The Economics of Supply and Demand

The Economics of Supply and Demand

Lawrence Klein, winner of the 1980 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, makes a compelling case for the integration of supply and demand in economic analysis and policy.

Lawrence Klein, winner of the 1980 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, makes a compelling case for the integration of supply and demand in economic analysis and policy. He shows how supply side factors enter macroeconomics and interact with demand side factors and maintains that only by constructing a model which brings together the total forces of supply and demand can one devise policies to affect the economic issues. Although the eschews as too shallow the current treatment of supply side economics, which concentrates on tax cuts as an incentive, he spotlights the neglect of supply factors as the cause of the present unproductive obsession with fiscal and monetary policy. He advocates the protection of the environment, the supply of raw materials and the improvement of human skills. ISBN 0-8010-3095-8 : $17.50.
