History of Oxford University Press: Volume I

The story of Oxford University Press spans five centuries of printing and publishing, leading from the early days of printing to worldwide publishing in academic research, education, and English language learning. How Oxford gained its Press Volume I begins with the successive attempts to establish printing at Oxford from 1478 onwards. Expert contributors chart the activities of individual printers, the eventualestablishment of a university printing house, its relationship with the University, and developments in printing under Archbishop Laud, John Fell, and William Blackstone. They explore the Press's scholarly publications and place in the book trade, and its growing influence on the city of Oxford.

Recent Developments in Applied Demand Analysis

The study of consumer demand is important for a number of reasons. First, as total consumption absorbs more than 70 percent of GDP in most countries, it is the largest of the macroeconomic aggregates, thus having great significance for the state of the economy as a whole and business conditions. Second, the pattern of consumption contains a wealth of useful information regarding economic welfare and living standards. Closely allied to this is that as consumption (both current and future) is the ultimate objective of all economic activity and economic systems (mercantilists notwithstanding), in a fundamental sense consumption patterns are an objective way of measuring and assessing economic p...

Market Demand

In a major work that is the culmination of over a decade of intensive research, Werner Hildenbrand presents a new theory of market demand, the principal aim of which is to identify the conditions under which the Law of Demand holds true. Hildenbrand argues that the Law of Demand is due mainly to the "heterogeneity" of the population of households. In his view, "rationality" of individual behavior plays only a minor role. While the traditional approach to the theory of market demand is to analyze the question, To what extent are the postulated properties of individual behavior preserved by going from individual to market demand?, this book asks the question, Which properties of the market dem...

Conflict and Effective Demand in Economic Growth

All capitalist economies experience fluctuations in employment and economic activity around a long term growth rate. This book provides an explanation for this cyclical pattern of growth. The author considers whether the causes of fluctuations in output and employment are to be found outside the system or within it, and whether the long term growth rate corresponds to the growth of the labor force. Important Marxian and Keynesian insights into the growth process are confirmed within a rigorous framework of analysis that does not exclude the traditional neoclassical mechanisms.

Caring for Our Own

  • Categories: Law

Aging populations and dramatic changes in health care provision, household structure, and women's labor force participation over the last half century have created what many observers have dubbed a crisis in care": demand for care of the old and infirm is rapidly growing, while the supply of private care within the family is substantially contracting. And yet, despite the well-documented adverse effects of contemporary care dilemmas on the economic security of families, the physical andmental health of family care providers, the bottom line of businesses, and the financial health of existing social welfare programs, American families have demonstrated little inclination for translating their...

Money Demand in Europe

In 1999 a number of member states of the European Union will adopt a common currency. This change in the monetary system requires that a Eur opean Central Bank is set up and a common monetary policy is pursued. There is general agreement among those countries which are likely to join the common currency that price level stability has to be the ultimate objec tive of monetary po1icy. It is an open issue, however, what kind of policy is best suited for that purpose. The alternative strategies under discussion are a direct inflation targeting, an intermediate monetary targeting or a mixture of both. For these policy strategies a stable money demand relation is of cen tral importance. Therefore ...

The Econometrics of Demand Systems

This book contains some of the results from the research project "Demand for Food in the Nordic Countries", which was initiated in 1988 by Professor Olof Bolin of the Agricultural University in Ultuna, Sweden and by Professor Karl Iohan Weckman, of the University of Helsinki, Finland. A pilot study was carried out by Bengt Assarsson, which in 1989 led to a successful application for a research grant from the NKJ (The Nordic Contact Body for Agricultural Research) through the national research councils for agricultural research in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. We are very grateful to Olof Bolin and Karl Iohan Weckman, without whom this project would not have come about, and to the nati...

On Demand

In early modern England, while moralists railed against the theatre as wasteful and depraved, and inflation whittled away at the value of wages, people attended the theatre in droves. This book draws on recent economic history and theory to account for this puzzling consumer behaviour. The author shows that during this period, demand itself, with its massed acquisitive energies, transformed the English economy.
