Essays in the Fundamental Theory of Monetary Economics and Macroeconomics

This book provides a comprehensive overview, in the form of eight long essays, of the evolution of monetary theory over the three-quarters of century, from the time of Keynes to the present day. The essays are originally based on lecture notes from a graduate course on Advanced Monetary Economics offered at York University, Toronto, written in the style of academic papers. The essays are mathematical in method — but also take a historical perspective, tracing the evolution of monetary thought through the Keynesian model, the monetarist model, new classical model, etc, up to and including the neo-Wickesellian models of the early 21st century. The book will be an essential resource for both graduate and advanced undergraduate students in economics, as well as for individual researchers seeking basic information on the theoretical background of contemporary debates.

Mainstream neoclassical economics tells us that money is essentially a commodity, has no other social meanings or consequences, and (therefore) exists only as a medium of exchange to lubricate/facilitate barter. This book takes the view that money is definitively a social relation between private persons or legal persons. As such, it is one of the main building blocks of the complex structure of social relations of capitalism itself.

Controversies in Monetary Economics

'John Smithin's erudite and eloquent Controversies in Monetary Economics (now in a revised second edition) reminds us that a cashless economy is by no means a moneyless economy. Drawing on Keynes's concept of monetary production and on the later work of Sir John Hicks, Smithin argues persuasively for the continuing central importance of money in understanding interest rate determination and economic fluctuations. This insightful book illuminates the role of monetary policy, notably within the European Monetary Union.' - Robert W. Dimand, Brock University, Canada 'This book provides an excellent overview of the controversies that have driven debate about monetary theory and policy over the la...

This volume provocatively rethinks the economics, politics and sociology of money and examines the classic question of what is money.

The contributors are Victoria Chick, Kevin Dowd, Gilles Dostaler, Steve Fleetwood, Gunnar Heinsohn, Geoff Ingham, Peter Kennedy, Peter G. Klein, Bernard Maris, Scott Meikle, Alain Parguez, Colin Rodgers, T.K.Rymes, Mario Seccarreccia, George Selgin, Otto Steiger, John Smithin and L. Randall Wray.

Macroeconomic policy and the future of capitalism

This book is stimulating and written in language easily accessible to a wide audience. It presents a useful survey of macroeconomic policies and ideas up to the present day. Smithin provides a welcome appraisal of modern macroeconomic theory and raises valid questions about the wisdom of contemporary policy makers.

I wish to give three cheers for John Smithin and his wonderfully courageous and timely new book. Stripping away all the clever technical scaffolding which characterises so much modern economic theory (which Smithin hi...

Macroeconomics after Thatcher and Reagan

This widely acclaimed book critically assesses the attempts to put the various conservative economic theories into practice. It identifies the disparate and often conflicting elements of the new economic philosophy including monetarism, supply-side economics and the new classical economics. It distinguishes the purely macroeconomic parts of the strategy from those with a more microeconomic focus such as deregulation and privatization. It makes a detailed comparison of the very different directions which the conservative revolution has taken in Britain and the United States, and suggests some alternative policy principles for the future.
