Government, International Trade, and Laissez-Faire Capitalism:Canada, Australia, and New Zealand´s Relations with Japan Carin L. Holroyd
The Big Three in Economics reveals the battle of ideas among the three most influential economists in world history: Adam Smith, representing laissez faire; Karl Marx, reflecting the radical socialist model; and John Maynard Keynes, symbolizing big government and the welfare state. History comes alive in this fascinating story of opposing views that continue to play a fundamental role in today´s politics and economics. In the 21st century, Adam Smith´s ´´invisible hand´´ model has gained the upper hand, and capitalism has ultimately won the ideological battle over socialism and interventionism. But even in the era of globalization and privatization, Keynesian and Marxist ideas continue to play a significant role in economic policy in the public and private sectors. ungekürzt.

Privatinteresse, unsichtbare Hand und laissez faire. Zum Verhältnis von Staat und Markt bei Adam Smith:1. Auflage. Christian Pfeiffer
Law and economics is the leading intellectual movement in law today. This book examines the first great law and economics movement in the early part of the twentieth century through the work of one of its most original thinkers, Robert Hale. Beginning in the 1890s and continuing through the 1930s, progressive academics in law and economics mounted parallel assaults on free-market economic principles. They showed first that ´´private,´´ unregulated economic relations were in fact determined by a state-imposed regime of property and contract rights. Second, they showed that the particular regime of rights that existed at that time was hard to square with any common-sense notions of social justice.
Innovation Policy and the Limits of Laissez-faire:Hong Kong´s Policy in Comparative Perspective
As the blockbuster best-seller Freakonomics demonstrated, economics can explain everything - from why people behave the way they do to how governments and businesses organize themselves. But are the basic assumptions and conclusions in Freakonomics true? Does the free market usually lead to unintended and negative consequences? Quite the opposite, says John Lott, who holds a Ph.D. in economics. In fact, says Lott, a wide range of fascinating and peculiar case studies prove the simple adage that if something is more costly, people will do less of it. And, in a refutation of Freakonomics´ most controversial idea, Lott shows why legalized abortion leads to family breakdown, which leads to more crime. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Zwischen Reglement und Laissez-faire:Zum Phänomen der Unschärfe im städtebaulichen Entwurf untersucht an deutschen und niederländischen Städtebaukonzepten der 1990er Jahre Cyrus Zahiri
The history of political thought abounds with the misappropriation of ideas and theories. The modern reputation of Adam Smith, the eighteenth century philosopher and political economist, as a conservative thinker is but one example of the many convoluted intellectual lineages of current political traditions. The dominant image of Adam Smith is that he was the intellectual forebear of contemporary conservative or neo-liberal economics.Robert Falkner is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science. When this pamplet was first published he held a Lectureship in Politics at New College, Oxford. This work is an essay in historical and intellectual reinterpretation. It argues that Adam Smith was far from being a laissez-faire doctrinaire and that his work provides an inspiration for a political liberalism which believes in the benefits of the market economy but insists, too, that the liberal economy is embedded in a larger social and political environment. Unlike some modern neo-liberal economists, Smith did not present human nature as that of homo oeconomicus, or rational economic man. Rather, he insisted that the individual is a social being, who acts on the basis not only of economic motives but also of moral considerations. Furthermore, Smith did not abandon politics in favour of economics. He maintained that good governance based on liberal political principles was needed to guarantee prosperity, justice and social cohesion. Good governance, in turn, was in need of a ´´science of a legislator´´. The Wealth of Nations was intended to be just such a science of a legislator - the source of the principles which ought to guide the political process.
