About this product
- DescriptionThis challenging book examines the origins and dynamics of financial-ecomic crises. Its wide theoretical scope incorporates the theories of Marx, Keynes and various other Post Keynesian scholars of endogeus money, and provides a grand synthesis of these theoretical lineages, as well as a powerful critique of prevailing neoclassical/monetarist theories of money. Bill Lucarelli provides detailed historical analyses of the causes of the current international financial crisis, and offers alternative heterodox theories with more coherent and rigorous theoretical frameworks than existing ecomic orthodoxies. He illustrates that the very assumptions of neoclassical theory - informed by the efficient markets hypothesis - tend to rule out the very possibility of endogeus financial crises. Consequently, he argues, the endogeus causes of these crises are either igred or simply treated as random, extraneous historical events. In stark contrast to these neoclassical/monetarist views, this book seeks to explain the recurrence of these financial crises as a result of the inner workings of the capitalist system. The Ecomics of Financial Turbulence will prove an invaluable contribution to modern heterodox theories of endogeus money, and as such will be essential reading for academics and students with an interest in ecomics, heterodox ecomics and money, finance and banking. Ecomic and financial policymakers will also find the book to be a fascinating read.
