The Essential Hayek

Nobel laureate economist F.A.Hayek firstt revolutionized economists' understanding of markets, and then profoundly challenged the public's understanding of government. Hayek is one of only a few social scientists over the past 200 years who thoroughly rethought the relationship between individual people and both the market and the state. While countless works have discussed the importance of Hayek and his ideas, none have focused on making his core ideas accessible to average people. This volume highlights and explains Hayek's basic insights in plain language to ensure that his critical ideas about the nature of society are both accessible and enduring.

Hayek's The Road to Serfdom: A Brief Introduction (Chicago Shorts)

The Road to Serfdom, F. A. Hayek's 1944 warning against the dangers of government control, continues to influence politics more than seventy years after it was turned down by three American publishers and finally published by the University of Chicago Press. A classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics, the definitive edition of The Road to Serfdom included this essay as its Introduction. Here, acclaimed Hayek biographer and general editor of the Collected Works of F. A. Hayek series, Bruce Caldwell explains how Hayek came to write and publish the book, assesses misunderstandings of Hayek's thought, and suggests how Hayek's fears of Socialism lead him to abandon the larger scholarly project he had planned in 1940 to focus instead on a briefer, more popular and political tract--one that has influenced political and economic discourse ever since.

Hayek, Mill and the Liberal Tradition (Open Access) (Routledge Studies in the History of Economics)

This book considers the relationship between Hayek and Mill, taking issues with Hayek's criticism of Mill and providing a broader perspective of the liberal tradition. Featuring contributions from the likes of Ross Emmett, Leon Montes and Robert Garnett, these chapters ask whether Hayek had an accurate reading of the ideas of Mill and Smith, as well as considering themes such as sympathy and analytical egalitarianism that play a large part in the liberal tradition, but less in work of Hayek. These chapters argue that addition of these key ideas to the Hayekian corpus leads to a far broader understanding of the liberal tradition than that provided by Hayek.

Debts, Deficits and Dilemmas: A companion workbook for students and teachers

In recent years economists have been re-examining their understanding of macroeconomics in the light of the global financial crisis that began in 2007-08. Did they really understand the problem of asset bubbles? Were they blind to the issues arising from financial innovation? Five years after the 2008 bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, The Economist published a series of briefs on the financial crisis andits aftermath, which were later published as a book under the title Debts, Deficits and Dilemmas.

This free companion workbook, which is aimed at both economics students and their teachers, includes questions and exercises that students can work through - either on their own or through classroom debate - to help them gain a good understanding of the financial crisis and what has followed it.

Beyond austerity: A path to economic growth and renewal in Europe

Europe faces multiple, simultaneous pressures on GDP growth at a time when scope to stimulate growth from public funds is limited by high debt and deficit levels. Just to maintain past GDP growth levels, Europe needs to accelerate productivity growth by around 30 per cent over historic levels, or opt to work more. Productivity growth would have to grow by an even greater margin if Europe is to close the GDP gap with the United States that prevails today.

In this challenging context, the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), McKinsey & Company's business and economics research arm, has examined what Europe needs to do to overcome the economic headwinds it faces in the years ahead. Beyond austerity: A path to economic growth and renewal in Europe looks in detail at labor market reform, Europe's productivity imperative, and ways in which some European companies and governments are leveraging new growth and innovation opportunities.

Despite today's pressures, MGI paints a fundamentally optimistic picture, making the case that Europe can regain its pre-crisis growth trajectory, and maintain it, by applying best practices that have already demonstrably worked within the region.

The report sets out a comprehensive agenda for European structural reform on the basis of analysis of existing best practice within the region, proposing reforms in three areas in parallel: pursuing further labor market reform, boosting productivity in service sectors, and pursing policies that enable the private sector to maximize opportunities in emerging markets, cleantech, and new innovative sectors.

Wealth Of Nations: Global Economic Development And Prosperity, How Money And The Economy Works

Economic growth is often seen as essential for economic prosperity, and indeed is one of the factors used as a measure of prosperity. The value of most currencies is closely tied to the economy of the county.

Have you ever wondered why almost every country prints their own currencies, yet economic crises arise within the county? What is the difficulty for the government in printing the money? Why do some countries need to take debt from other countries when they are self-responsible for printing money?

There are so many principles that govern the prudency or the rightness in printing currency by the authorities. A currency note is technically a bearer promissory note, where in the issuing authority promises to pay the bearer the value of it whenever demanded.

As the years passed, with economies growing and the population exponentially increasing, it became difficult to back the money issued with Gold. The authorities then adopted what is called the Minimum Reserve System. The Gold kept as reserve was minimum and the money is issued under the system of minimum reserve (issuing unlimited currency). This money is called the Fiat money.

By 1975, all of the oil-producing nations of OPEC had agreed to price their oil in dollars. This make the petrol the most important mean of exchange for U.S

One more factor that restricts the printing of money is "Inflation" :

If we print more money, prices will rise such that we're no better off than we were before. It can be considered dangerous because printing money causes inflation in an economy, and if you print too much money you can also get hyper - inflation.

When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services and that is called the inflation.

A Country needs to be more competitive by producing cheaper goods, technological advancements and facilitating exports to become rich. In this way demand of locally produced goods and services would fetch money and hence paves the way to become rich country.

This classic Book -The Wealth Of Nations: How Money And The Economy Works will be of a great help to you. Enjoy !!!
