Keynes' General Theory Of Interest

The theory of interest is one of the most controversial areas in economic theory. In "Keynes' General Theory of Interest," Fiona Maclachlan revives Keynes' largely discredited liquidity preference of interest theory, providing an original and rigorously reasoned restatement of it. Drawing inspiration from Keynes' original thoughts, she offers a reformulation of this crucial theory to allow more precise definitions of liquidity and liquidity preference.
Any theory that is relevant to modern economics must take account of the motivations of speculative wealth-holders and show how they interact with time preferences of savers and the capital productivity considerations of producer-investors. Maclachlan reaches the innovative conclusion that liquidity preference can explain the existence of interest on its own, while time preference and capital productivity cannot. This result is reinforced with a model that shows how speculative wealth-holders under assumptions plausible for an economy with developed financial institutions can dominate over savers and producer-borrowers in determining the level of interest.
The central argument of this study is supported by Keynes' writings, particularly those in his published correspondence. The book draws on the methodological tenets of the Austrian school, and is grounded firmly both in the history of economic thought and in real world economic institutions. It is the insights drawn upon in this book, rather than those which have been developed in the Keynesian literature, that Keynes himself considered the most important.

In terms of economics, the twenty-first century promises to be one of experiments and mixed economies that display features of both a private enterprise market and an intrusive government sector. To fully understand this coming trend, William Hixson presents this study of the U.S. economy since World War I and its experiments with mixed economics. Hixson describes how the largely laissez-faire economy prior to 1929 was so structured to make a crisis of illiquidity and overindebtedness inevitable, and how the mixed economy that has prevailed since World War II is structured to result in a similar crisis. His work challenges the generally accepted views of both U.S. and Marxist economists. Following a brief introduction that outlines Hixson's approach and theoretical framework, the book begins with a seven-chapter study of the basic operating principles and procedures of a laissez faire economy. The next three chapters examine the Great Crash of 1929 and how it was a predictable outcome of the U.S. economy's operation in a laissez-faire mode. A set of four chapters then analyze the emergence of the government sector as an increasingly significant factor, and the evolution and institutionalization of mixed economy. The last set of chapters considers the past four decades of a mixed economy and why it lacks long-term viability, while the concluding two chapters suggest changes in operating principles and financial practices to make the mixed economy a viable one. This work will be a valuable resource for professionals involved in all types of financial and investing fields, as well as for students and scholars of economics and national economies.


Ideas, Interests And Foreign Aid

Why do countries give foreign aid? Although many countries have official development assistance programs, this book argues that no two of them see the purpose of these programmes in the same way. Moreover, the way countries frame that purpose has shaped aid policy choices past and present. The author examines how Belgium long gave aid out of a sense of obligation to its former colonies, The Netherlands was more interested in pursuing international influence, Italy has focused on the reputational payoffs of aid flows and Norwegian aid has had strong humanitarian motivations since the beginning. But at no time has a single frame shaped any one country's aid policy exclusively. Instead, analysing half a century of legislative debates on aid in these four countries, this book presents a unique picture both of cross-national and over time patterns in the salience of different aid frames and of varying aid programmes that resulted.
