The Crisis of Vision in Modern Economic Thought by Robert Heilbroner, William Milberg

English | 1996 | ISBN: 0521497744 | 131 Pages | PDF | 8.0 MB

A deep and widespread crisis affects modern economic theory, a crisis that derives from the absence of a “vision”–a set of widely shared political and social preconceptions–on which all economics ultimately depends. This absence, in turn, reflects the collapse of the Keynesian view that provided such a foundation from 1940 through the early 1970s, comparable to earlier visions provided by Smith, Ricardo, Mill, and Marshall. The “unraveling” of Keynesianism has been followed by a division into discordant and ineffective camps whose common denominator seems to be their shared analytical refinement and lack of practical applicability. This provocative analysis attempts both to describe this state of affairs, and to suggest the direction in which economic thinking must move if it is to regain the relevance and remedial power it now pointedly lacks.

Rescuing Retirement :
A Plan To Guarantee Retirement Security For All Americans

English | 2018 | ISBN: 0231185642 | 183 Pages | True PDF | 1.02 MB

Everyone deserves to be able to retire with dignity, but this core feature of the social contract is in jeopardy. Companies have swerved away from pensions, and most of the workforce has woefully inadequate retirement savings. If we don’t act to fix this broken system, rates of impoverishment for senior citizens threaten to skyrocket, and tens of millions of Americans reaching retirement age in the coming decades will be forced to delay retirement and will experience a dramatic drop in their standard of living.
In Rescuing Retirement, Teresa Ghilarducci and Tony James offer a comprehensive yet simple plan to help workers save for retirement, increase retirement savings by earning higher returns, and guarantee lifelong income for everyone. Built on people’s own money in individual Guaranteed Retirement Accounts, the plan requires no new taxes, no more bureaucracy, and no increase in the deficit. Speaking to Americans’growing anxiety about their ability to retire, Rescuing Retirement provides answers to anyone wanting to understand the growing movement to protect a period of life once considered a deserved time of rest and creativity and offers a practical guide to the future of secure retirement.

Microeconomics: An Intuitive Approach with Calculus, 2nd Edition by Thomas J. Nechyba

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1305650468, 9781305650466 | 1264 Pages | True PDF | 66.95 MB

Examine microeconomic theory as a way of looking at the world as Microeconomics: An Intuitive Approach with Calculus 2nd Edition builds on the basic economic foundation of individual behavior. Each chapter contains two sections.
The A sections introduce concepts using intuition, conversational writing, everyday examples, and graphs with a focus on mathematical counterparts. The B sections then cover the same concepts with precise, accessible mathematical analyses that assume one semester of single-variable calculus. The book offers flexible topical coverage with four distinct paths: a non-game theory path through microeconomics, a path emphasizing game theory, a path emphasizing policy issues, or a path focused on business. Readers can use B sections to explore topics in greater depth.
