Summary: ÔThis book puts human beings back at the heart of the economic process. It shows how this classical, human-centred tradition, stretching from Adam Smith onward, gives us a much better understanding of economic events Ð and what to do about them Ð than the mechanistic, mathematical models of too many economists and planners today.Õ Ð Eamonn Butler, The Adam Smith Institute, UK ÔDavid Simpson writes about key economic issues with admirable lucidity.

In the classical tradition, growth rather than allocative efficiency is the principal object of enquiry, economic phenomena are recognised to be elements of processes rather than structures, and change is evolutionary. The book shows the common principles that connect the early classical school, the Austrian school and complexity theory in a single line of thought. It goes on to show how these principles can be applied to explain the characteristic features of a market economy Ð namely incessant change, growth, the business cycle and the market process itself Ð and argues that static equilibrium theory, whether neoclassical or neo-Keynesian, cannot satisfactorily account for these phenomena. This fascinating book will provide a stimulating read for academics, postgraduate students and all those with an interest in economic theory and economic policy. ...show less
