  3. Front cover image for Democracy, Market Economics, and Development : an Asian Perspective.
    Format:
    eBook
    Publication year:
    ©2001

    Annotation 'Democracy, Market Economics, and Development' evaluates the extent to which democracy is necessary to the achievement of sustainable development in Asia. A selection of papers by distinguished contributors including Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz, and Francis Fukuyama are included in this volume. This book argues that democracy and markets are complementary and that democracy is intrinsic to development. It contends that liberal and participatory democracy encourages development by providing legitimacy to reform efforts. Movement toward liberal and participatory democracy allows for the convergence of the political and economic institutions of Asia and the West. There is broad agreement that effective and sustainable development is multi-faceted and is not only based on changes in per capita income.

  5. Front cover image for Is the market moral? : a dialogue on religion, economics, and justice
    Format:
    eBook
    Publication year:
    ©2004

    In the great tradition of moral argument about the nature of the economic market, Rebecca Blank and William McGurn join to debate the fundamental questions -- equality and efficiency, productivity and social justice, individual achievement and personal rights in the workplace, and the costs and benefits of corporate and entrepreneurial capitalism. Their arguments are grounded in both economic sophistication and religious commitment. Rebecca Blank is an economist by training and describes herself as "culturally Protestant in the habits of mind and heart." She has also chaired the committee that wrote the statement on Christian faith and economic life adopted by the United Church of Christ. Addressing market failure, for her, requires that sometimes "freedom to choose" give way to other human values. William McGurn, a journalist and a Roman Catholic, uses his expertise in economics to reflect on the teachings of the church concerning the morality of the market. For McGurn, humans reach their fullest potential, when they are free from the constraints of others. He writes that "our quarrel is not so much with Adam Smith or Milton Friedman but with the Providence that so clearly designed man to be his most prosperous at his most free." This book grapples with the new imperatives of a global economy while working in the classic tradition of political economy which always treated seriously the questions of morality, justice, productivity, and freedom.

    Economists assume that people make choices based on their preferences and their budget constraints. The preferences and values of others play no role in the standard economic model. This feature has been sharply criticized by other social scientists, who believe that the choices people make are also conditioned by social and cultural forces. Economists, meanwhile, are not satisfied with standard sociological and anthropological concepts and explanations because they are not embedded in a testable, analytic framework. In this book, Gary Becker and Kevin Murphy provide such a framework by including the social environment along with standard goods and services in their utility functions. These extended utility functions provide a way of analyzing how changes in the social environment affect people's choices and behaviors. More important, they also provide a way of analyzing how the social environment itself is determined by the interactions of individuals. Using this approach, the authors are able to explain many puzzling phenomena, including patterns of drug use, how love affects marriage patterns, neighborhood segregation, the prices of fine art and other collectibles, the social side of trademarks, the rise and fall of fads and fashions, and the distribution of income and status.Table of Contents: Acknowledgments Part I The Effect of Social Capital on Market Behavior 1.

It does so by addressing a diverse set of issues that includes social capital, habits and social interactions, sorting and marriage markets, segregation and integration of neighborhoods, escalation in product quality, status and inequality, and the modeling of fashions, norms, and values.--Stephen R. G. Jones, Journal of Economic Literature.
