Heretical Economics
Heretical Economics examines important economic questions of the day such as the effect of government spending and deficits, fluctuations in the construction of housing, the economic effects of immigration, and a variety of others. It explains why many common beliefs - for example, that federal deficits burden future generations, the crisis of 2008 resulted from the greed of Wall Street, and residential segregation results from the action of unscrupulous landlords - are mistaken It shows why urban growth is concentrated in outlying areas, commuters cling to their automobiles and college football coaches are paid more than their universitys president.

Economic Fables
Part memoir, part crash-course in economic theory, this deeply engaging book by one of the world's foremost economists looks at economic ideas through a personal lens. Together with an introduction to some of the central concepts in modern economic thought, Ariel Rubinstein offers some powerful and entertaining reflections on his childhood, family and career. In doing so, he challenges many of the central tenets of game theory, and sheds light on the role economics can play in society at large. The book is as thought-provoking for seasoned economists as it is enlightening for newcomers to the field. Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind, describes Economics Fables as a "wonderfully inviting introduction to game theory, rich in personalities, history and sense of place. Ariel Rubinstein is not only a brilliant theorist with a knack for lucid exposition, but a gifted storyteller. Students will find the ideas surprisingly accessible. Aspiring scholars, wondering whether a life of the mind is worth pursuing, will find his personal journey of intellectual discovery thrilling."

Islam and Scientific Economics
In an Islamic society, it is ethics that dominates and determines all behavior, including economic behavior. The Holy Koran emerges as the main source of all economic behavior and practices which are subject to the commands of Allah as stated in the Koran. Since Islam is a universal religion, the Islamic economic paradigm with its scientific Islamic economic theories has to be comprehensive as well as perfect in the sense of fairness, ethical values and fruitfulness. A universal Islamic economic system ought to have universally applicable economic laws acceptable by both, the Muslim and the non-Muslim world - meaning that when the word Islamic is taken out of the equation; it should appeal to all societies and countries equally, regardless of their religious persuasion. The question now is; do Islamic economics offer such scientific economic theories? Surprisingly, there were no such theories at all. In fact, there was not even a theory of interest, the most frequently referred to subject in Islamic economics. This appeared to be a serious omission. The Holy sources may be more than sufficient for Muslims, but what about non-Muslims? Isn't it justified to expect Islamic scientific economic models and theories that are applicable to or able to guide non-Muslims?

Tomato Economics
Olivia Saunders presents her challenge boldly, and in no uncertain terms. In clear language even the most inexperienced layman can penetrate, Saunders presents a lucid, reasoned argument for a new way to see the worlds resources, and particularly the people who use them. Through the economics of abundance, Saunders seeks to reorient the way we as human beings relate to each other, our communities and our world. By denying the prevailing view of scarcity, which forces a paradigm of dehumanizing competition, and embracing what one might loosely term tomato economics, Saunders dares us to see the truth: there is enough, and more than enough. There is abundance.

Economic Careers
In this volume fourteen senior economists describe their early introduction to the study of economics and their contribution to the development of academic economics in Britain. With experience covering a period stretching from the mid 1920s to the late 1960s, many of the contributors not only provide an insight into the role of university disciplines in the education system but describe their experience in wartime administration, or as government advisors. The interview format of the work makes for accessibility and readability in a sometimes arcane area of work.

Behavioral Economics
Over the last few decades behavioral economics has revolutionized the discipline. It has done so by putting the human back into economics, by recognizing that people sometimes make mistakes, care about others and are generally not as cold and calculating as economists have traditionally assumed. The results have been exciting and fascinating, and have fundamentally changed the way we look at economic behavior. This textbook introduces all the key results and insights of behavioral economics to a student audience. Ideas such as mental accounting, prospect theory, present bias, inequality aversion and learning are explained in detail. These ideas are also applied in diverse settings such as auctions, stock market crashes, charitable donations and health care, to show why behavioral economics is crucial to understanding the world around us. Consideration is also given to what makes people happy, and how we can potentially nudge people to be happier. This new edition contains expanded and updated coverage of contract theory, bargaining in the family, time and risk, and stochastic reference points, among other topics, to ensure that readers are kept up to speed with this fast-paced field. The companion website is also updated with a range of new questions and worked examples. This book remains the ideal introduction to behavioral economics for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Millennial Economics
How did We the People get into an economic mess like this to begin with? How did we end up with a $16 trillion national debt that paralyzes all initiatives, makes us a laughingstock instead of a world leader, and stands to enslave our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with horrendous debts? What can we do to diffuse what US Senator Tom Coburn calls The Debt Bomb? Is there a constitutional, holistic, and efficient way out of this mess?Answers can be found in this book. The elegant writing and incisive explanations found in this volume conquer the complexity of the topic and its mixture of rhapsodic prose and an almost eerie moral clarity project buoyancy and hope. The majority of laws in the Five Books of Moses concern money and this important volume while reflecting the spontaneous surgings of the human spirit, helps us understand why. Rabbi Daniel Lapin, American Alliance of Jews and Christians

Sustainability Economics
The book is a concise introduction to an emerging field within economics. Drawing on numerous disciplines, including environmental science, environmental and ecological economics and optimal growth theory, sustainability remains a hazy and complex subject. The author set out with two objectives: one, to bring some order into the proliferating measures, models and management of sustainability; and two, to facilitate access to a complex inter-disciplinary subject area. The book points to practical ways of assessing and enhancing the long-term environmental and economic sustainability of our economies. The result is a fully international study that should bridge the gap between disciplines and prove to be an essential guide to anyone interested in one of the most important concepts in the social sciences.
