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. 1. Language: English.

"This Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic (fourth edition) has been enlarged and amended with 13,000 new entries. It is the only authorized paperback edition of the famous Hans Wehr Arabic-English Dictionary, edited by J. Milton Cowan. This new edition has thousands of new entries include numerous additions and corrections to the material and presents the results in a single handsome volume. The author provides a useful introduction in which he discusses, clearly and precisely, the present state of the Arabic language. He points out the situations in which written and spoken varieties of Arabic are used, and remarks on the forces that influenced the development of the lexicon of Modern Arabic. He discusses both the purist movement with its normative tradition, and what might be called the laissez-faire actual usage of writers and journalists under the influence of Western modes of expression, of their everyday colloquial, or both. He then moves on to the problem of local terminology, especially for public institutions, offices, administrative matters, titles, and foods. Although such terms are included for most of the Arab countries, the list is not complete, as indeed the author recognizes (viii); readers of Arabic material characterized by a distinct regional coloring are advised to refer to dialect dictionaries and glossaries."

Neoliberals hate the state. Or do they? In the first intellectual history of neoliberal globalism, Quinn Slobodian follows a group of thinkers from the ashes of the Habsburg Empire to the creation of the World Trade Organization to show that neoliberalism emerged less to shrink government and abolish regulations than to redeploy them at a global level. Slobodian begins in Austria in the 1920s. Empires were dissolving and nationalism, socialism, and democratic self-determination threatened the stability of the global capitalist system. In response, Austrian intellectuals called for a new way of organizing the world. But they and their successors in academia and government, from such famous economists as Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises to influential but lesser-known figures such as Wilhelm Röpke and Michael Heilperin, did not propose a regime of laissez-faire. Rather they used states and global institutions - the League of Nations, the European Court of Justice, the World Trade Organization, and international investment law - to insulate the markets against sovereign states, political change, and turbulent democratic demands for greater equality and social justice. Far from discarding the regulatory state, neoliberals wanted to harness it to their grand project of protecting capitalism on a global scale. It was a project, Slobodian shows, that changed the world, but that was also undermined time and again by the inequality, relentless change, and social injustice that accompanied it. 1.

Liberty Lost: American Big Government and the E...
9,95 € *

Find out the real history of how the US government dismantled the Constitution, thwarted our freedoms, and wrecked the economy. Nineteenth-century America was the closest thing to pure free-market capitalism that has ever existed. There was no welfare state, no central bank, no deficit spending to speak of, no fiat money, and no income tax for most of the century, and no antitrust laws or federal regulatory agencies until the end of the century. The US Constitution protected individual liberty (with the exception of slavery) and limited the power of government, giving rise to an economy in which people were free to pursue their interests, free to start new businesses, free to create as much wealth as their ability and ambition allowed. This near laissez-faire system led to the wealthiest, most innovative nation ever. During the 20th century, by contrast, American liberty declined as the size, scope, and power of government exploded. Federal spending, taxes, deficits, and debt have spiraled out of control. The dollar has lost most of its value due to the inflationary policies of the Federal Reserve. Entitlement programs now constitute the majority of the federal budget. And American businesses are hog-tied by mountains of red tape in the Code of Federal Regulations. Where in our history did we go wrong? How did the American system shift from capitalism to statism, from limited government to big government, from a near free-market economy to a heavily regulated mixed economy? What acts, programs, interventions, and Supreme Court rulings brought America to its present state? Liberty Lost answers these questions. It surveys the politico-economic history of the US from the founding to the present, showing how the erosion of the Constitution unleashed big government, undermining our liberties and hindering economic progress. 1.

Living in the United States has put me in a great position of perspective. This is why I had to leave my country of origin, beautiful Transylvania behind, and my parents. And this was excruciatingly painful for us, and for my own community in Romania. So I decided I keep my country, and my new adoptive country to a higher standard, and ask more accountability from Despots in power.Ironically Trump turned out to be a despot, a nazi style president himself.Socialism, communism, fascism and Nazism are all but dead now. They have failed miserably. But they have been replaced by what is merely another more watered-down form of collectivism that may be called "interventionism". Indeed, interventionism is the predominant economic system in the world today.Contrary to the doctrine of laissez-faire capitalism, in the real world there are prolonged periods when market forces cannot self-correct in time to best serve the common good. Resulting social instability can only be corrected by government action.The crisis of statism, the rise of ultra-Liberalism which opposes all intervention in the “free market” (as suggested in the Ebeling quote above), and the recent development of what I call Decentralized-Liberalism (as suggested in the Soros quote above) provide the context for this audiobook in which civic society proposes intervention in the market to ease the blows of globalization.The double recession we are crossing through, in 2008, and now in 2012, the “double-dip” recession requires new thinking and favors George Soros’ common good interventionist state theory is winning hearts all over the globe.Although since the process of rapid globalization begun (since the 1980s with Reagan and Thatcher) has been widely studied and the new role of civil society has crucial importance. 1.

The Unbelievable True Story of Robert Abrams, the man who changed the New York Attorney General's Office for Good. At the heart of this political memoir is the story of how the office of state attorney general, an historically sleepy backwater post, has evolved into a front line major protector of the rights of citizens across the country. New York State Attorney General Robert Abrams exercised leadership in organizing attorneys general throughout the nation to take collective action against the Reagan administration's punishing laissez-faire anti-regulatory policies. Abrams and his fellow attorneys general set the precedent for the successful challenges mounted by today's attorneys general against the Trump administration's immigration policies and rollback of consumer and civil rights protections. Through lively anecdotes, Abrams captures the Bronx of his childhood, his early insurgent grassroots campaigns taking on the powerful Democratic Party machine, the urban challenges of being Bronx Borough President, the turbulent Vietnam anti-war years, and the beginnings of the environmental justice movement. He revisits the explosive Tawana Brawley case where an African American teenage girl alleged rape and brutality by a group of white men that included law enforcement officials. Abrams provides behind-the-scenes interactions with important figures ranging from Golda Meir, George McGovern, Mario Cuomo, Robert Moses, and Cesar Chavez to Shirley Chisholm. The book demonstrates how ordinary people battling unequal odds against corporate and other powerful forces can prevail when laws are enforced to protect their rights. A chapter about the infamous Love Canal case details the shocking revelation that buried beneath the seemingly placid upstate New York working class community lay tons of toxic waste spawning chronic health problems for residents. Abrams in a landmark lawsuit took on Occidental Petroleum for its callous actions, paved the way for the passage of the Superfund Act and a victory for the emerging environmental justice movement. He describes dramatic confrontations with the radical anti-abortion group, Operation Rescue, and its increasingly violent efforts to deny a woman's right to choose. His courageous, path-breaking support of LGBT rights, seeking to end the prevailing bigotry with legal victories that ultimately led to marriage equality is also revisited. In The Luckiest Guy in the World, Robert Abrams wears his progressive values on his sleeve, providing an optimistic view about our nation's return to its fundamental values.

Prelude to Pax Americana
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the events that made it possible for the leaders of the United States to establish the hegemonic global order known as Pax Americana after the Second World War. Adopting Cox s Neo-Gramscian approach, it focuses on the relationship between social forces, forms of state and world orders. Specifically, it traces the dynamics of intra-capitalist hegemonic competition between nationalist sectors which also favoured a laissez-faire labour market and internationalist social actors which also promoted welfare and advanced labour policies. It analyses the relationship between the United States new status as net creditor after the First World War and the role of technology in determining firms trade and labour policies. It concludes that the internationalist-welfare historic bloc and neoliberal form of state were already formed by 1938, facilitating the establishment of Pax Americana in the aftermath of the Second World War. The book attempts to shed light on the momentous events that catapulted the American Leviathan to global hegemony, and should be useful for scholars, practitioners and students in the fields of international relations and global political economy.
