A Dictionary of Economics provides comprehensive definitions of over 2,500 economic terms. It covers all aspects of economic theory--from microeconomics to public finance and international trade, organizations, and institutions. Clear and jargon-free definitions provide an indispensable source of reference for students of economics and related fields, as well as for anyone who comes into contact with the vocabulary of economics. Up-to-date entries on topics such as e-commerce and the Euro have been added. Mathematical and statistical terms widely used in economics, as well as words from related areas such as business and finance, are widely covered.
This two-volume reference comprises 92 chapters contributed by an international roster of authors and is intended for undergraduate students and serious general readers who need access to summaries of theories and models--in preparation for tests or as starting points for research--as well as for professional economists and others seeking information about new approaches and topics. The aim is to present accurate, succinct, balanced coverage of a wide range of basic and new topics. Arrangement is in sections on various dimensions of the field such as scope and methodology, micro- and macro-, public, and international. In a section on analysis of issues and markets, topics include aging, race, sports, justice, transportation, gambling, HIV and AIDS, migration, health, sexual orientation, microfinance, and cultural heritage, among others. Emerging areas of study addressed in the final set of chapters include, for example, ethics, feminist economics, neuroeconomics, and evolutionary economics. Each chapter reviews theory, considers applications, develops models, and explores empirical evidence

F.A. Hayek (1899-1992) was among the most important economists and political philosophers of the twentieth century. He is widely regarded as the principal intellectual force behind the triumph of global capitalism, an 'anti-Marx' who did more than any other recent thinker to elucidate the theoretical foundations of the free market economy. His account of the role played by market prices in transmitting economic knowledge constituted a devastating critique of the socialist ideal of central economic planning, and his famous book The Road to Serfdom was a prophetic statement of the dangers which socialism posed to a free and open society. He also made significant contributions to fields as diverse as the philosophy of law, the theory of complex systems, and cognitive science. The essays in this volume, by an international team of contributors, provide a critical introduction to all aspects of Hayek's thought.
