Editorial Reviews

Uniting non-neoclassical traditions to incorporate the passage of time into economic analysis, 14 essays address such current issues as economic stabilization, rising inequality, wage stagnation, labor-market dislocation, international competitiveness, and economic development. They consider methodological and theoretical aspects, concepts necessary to redefine economics, and issues of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and international commerce. Robert Heilbroner closes the collection by exploring the connection between economics and capitalism. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
