About this product
- DescriptionTheories of Financial Disturbance examines how the operations of market-driven finance may initiate and transmit disturbances to the ecomy at large, by looking in detail at how various ecomists envisaged such disturbances occurring. This book is more than just a study in the history of ecomic thought - it illustrates how ecomic debate focuses upon financial disturbance at times of financial instability, and then conveniently discards critical views when such instability recedes. Jan Toporowski looks at the development of critical theories from the views of Adam Smith and Francois Quesnay, and their reflection in recent new Keynesian ideas of Joseph Stiglitz and Ben Bernanke, through credit cycles in Alfred Marshall and Ralph Hawtrey, to the financial theories of Thorstein Veblen and Irving Fisher. Also studied are the theories of John Kenneth Galbraith, Michal Kalecki, John Maynard Keynes, Charles Kindleberger, Rosa Luxemburg, Hyman P. Minsky, Robert Shiller and Josef Steindl. Not least among the original features of this book are a discussion of Quesnay's attitude towards interest, and a chapter devoted to the work of the Polish monetary ecomist Marek Breit, whose work inspired Kalecki. Jan Toporowski's fascinating work will find its audience in academics of finance and financial ecomics, bankers, financiers and policy makers concerned with financial stability as well as anyone looking for arguments on the imperfect functioning of finance.
