Description : The history of Indian economic thought provides rich insights into both economic issues and the workings of the Indian mind. A History of Indian Economic Thought provides the first overview of economic thought in the sub-continent. Arguing that it would be inappropriate to rely on formal economic analyses it draws on a wide range of sources; epics, religious and moral texts for the early period and public speeches, addresses, and newspaper articles for controversies from the nineteenth century onwards. What emerges is a rich mosaic reflecting India's different cultures and civilizations. Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam all address economic issues and British colonial rule had a deep impact, both in propagating Western economic ideas and in provoking Indian theories of colonialism and underdevelopment. The author concludes with chapters on Ghandian economics and on Indian economic thought since Independence.

Description : The global financial crisis has drawn attention to the importance of understanding historical ideas and learning lessons from the past. However, it can sometimes be difficult to trace the connections between old ideas and modern day issues. This textbook traces the evolution of economic ideas from the ancient to the modern world by examining the contributions of the most important scholars to some of the most important ideas in economics. The History of Economic Ideas surveys topics that are important for the understanding of contemporary economic issues, including the ethical foundations of modern economics; ideas regarding property rights; price theory; money and interest; public finance; the theories of business cycles and economic growth; international trade; and issues related to population and resource use. The book’s originality lies in its overall organization, which allows readers to explore the development of ideas on a specific topic in detail. Yet it is brief enough to use alongside the original writings on which it is based. Filled with student-friendly features including a series of "Did You Know" facts and end-of-chapter questions, this book is engaging and provides invaluable reading for all students of the history of economic thought and economic issues.

Description : This textbook covers the syllabus of the papers on economy, state and society of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Economics in India. It also covers the topics under the paper on history of economic thought taught in some colleges/universities. The book explains the emergence, evolution and working of the capitalist system with the help of some of the major principles and theories of economics, both mainstream and heterodox. It interrelates economics and economic life with other aspects of our lives—social, cultural, political, religious and intellectual. This book departs from the traditional analysis of the capitalist system in integrating the real sector of the economy with its monetary sector, and carries forward Keynes’ analysis. It combines Keynesian and Marxian approaches to the subject and emphasises the dialectical unfolding of life that underlies the interrelation between the economy, state and society. It underlines that the capitalist system is constantly changing, propelled by the tendency towards increasing concentration of ownership and control of the means of production in fewer and fewer hands. The book comes with an Instructor’s Manual to aid the teaching of the subject.

Description : This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the main schools of contemporary economic thought, presenting the current state of each school in its own terms, indicating its raison d'etre, why each school thinks as it does and the questions to which it is trying to find answers. There is an introductory chapter on the philosophy and methodology of economics and separate chapters on the Austrian, Neoclassical, Chicago, Keynesian, Post Keynesian, Institutionalist/Evolutionary and Radical/Marxian schools each written by an economist with specialist knowledge of the particular school. The book explains in straightforward terms the ideologies, methodological practices, issues, assumptions, evidence and conclusions in a positive and constructive way. It concludes that there can be no single, definitive approach to the study of economics and that the schools of thought should be seen as complementary to each other. Summaries of each school are provided to allow readers to establish the principal features of each school.
