Presenting a radical revision of modern economic theory, this analysis adjusts the entire range of economic thought in relation to the fundamental part played by land, the significance of credit—especially in the banking system—and the crucial impact of the taxation method. The resulting system based upon natural law, economic security for all, fair distribution of output, and the opportunity for self-fulfillment through work draws upon the masters of economic thought—from Smith and Ricardo to Marshall, Schumpter, and Keynes—but also provides new insights by highlighting concepts often omitted from current studies of their works.

About the Author:

Brian Hodgkinson was a chartered accountant in the city of London and a graduate from Balliol College–Oxford. He is the founding editor of the economics journal British Economy Survey and the author of The Advancement of Civilisation in the Western World, Bhagavad Gita, and The Essence of Vedanta.

Review:

“[Hodkinson’s] book is a breath of fresh air in the suffocating room of modern pedagogy in economics.”  —Mason Gaffney, professor of economics, University of California–Riverside

“[A New Model of the Economy] is much more relevant to the present state of real-world economies than the models offered by most economics textbooks.”  —James Robertson, founder/member, New Economic Foundation

“[A New Model of the Economy] has serious implications for any economist or politician hoping to remedy ominous symptoms of disaster, like the current banking crisis . . . . In short, the book offers a model for fundamental reform.”  —Abstracts of Public Administration, Development and Environment

Book Description Shepheard-Walwyn (Publishers) Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The book offers a radical revision of modern economic theory. Its starting point is the existing body of both micro and macro economics, as developed in such textbooks as "Economics" by Begg, Fischer and Dombusch and "Positive Economics" by Lipsey and Chrystal. Following a similar framework as these books, it adjusts the whole range of theory by introducing some new concepts and other earlier ones that have been much neglected in the economic thought of the past century. These are related especially to the fundamental part played by land, in its proper sense of all natural resources available on the earth, the significance of credit, especially through the banking system, and the crucial impact of the method of taxation. The resulting analysis yields a thoroughly revised version on the contemporary model of a capitalist economy, so that a genuine 'third way' is revealed. This is not a mere modification of the present system of absentee ownership confronting a market for labour, with all the attendant evils of unemployment, monopoly and misdistribution of wealth and income.Rather it is a system based upon natural law, exhibiting economic security for all, fair distribution of output and, above all, the opportunity for self-fulfilment through work. The "new model"; draws upon the masters of economic thought from Smith and Ricardo, to Marshall, Schumpeter and Keynes by highlighting concepts often omitted from current studies of their works; such as Ricardo's' analysis of scarcity and differential elements of rent, Schumpeter's view of the role of banking and Keynes' hints at a labour theory of value. Indeed, this far reaching revision makes bold advances upon the Marshallian theory of the firm and the Keynesian theory of national income determination, thus providing new insights into both micro and macro theory. It remains faithful, however, to the tradition of these latter thinkers in explaining matters fully in words and resorting to mathematics mainly through the use of diagrams intelligible to anyone with an elementary grasp of the subject. Whilst the book strives to avoid value judgments in the interests on social science, it undoubtedly carries strong implications about economic policy.These are bound up with the central notions of free land and free credit, which have been singularly ignored by policy-makers since a few valiant attempts to introduce them in the early twentieth century. Hence the 'new model' is offered to both theorists and practitioners of Economics, to politicians and public servants, but particularly to those who, like the author, truly seek a new vision of the subject.
