Innovation and Inequality: How Does Technical Progress Affect Workers?

By Saint-Paul, Gilles

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2008. Hardcover. First edition. NEW hardcover in dust jacket with publisher's review stamp to the bottom of the text block. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. "Karl Marx predicted a world in which technical innovation would increasingly devalue and impoverish workers, but the opposite--increased wages and living standards--occured. Yet in the last three decades, the market economy has been jeopardized by a worrying phenomenon: a rise in wage inequality that has left a substantial portion of the workforce worse off despite the continuing productivity growth enjoyed by the economy. This volume examines why. Saint-Paul reveals how different categories of workers gain or lose from innovation, and how that gain or loss crucially depends on the nature of the innovation." 208 pages; 6.5 x 9.5 inches. Publisher's press release laid in.

Civilizing the Economy: A New Economics of Provision

By Brown, Marvin T.

New York: Cambridge University Press, 2010. Paperback. First paperback edition, first printing. Review copy. Fine/As New. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. "When a handful of people thrive while whole industries implode and millions suffer, it is clear that something is wrong with our economy. In Civilizing the Economy, Brown traces the origin of this economics of dissociation to early capitalism, showing how this is illustrated in Adam Smith's denial of the central role of slavery in wealth creation. In place of the Smithian economics of property, Brown proposes that we turn to the original meaning of economics as household management. He presents a new framework for the global economy that reframes its purpose as the making of provisions instead of the accumulation of property." 268 pages; 6 x 9 inches.
