9781463793159: Short Essays in Economics and Finance

This selection of essays by Professor Marques Mendes was written for a broad audience. Yet, the author presents some novel ideas on a wide range of topics from why exports are not all the same to the reasons why trade investors may collide to pay CEOs like rock-stars. The essays in economics are organized in four sections: Economics and capitalism, controversies in economics, economic theories and crisis management. The essays in finance cover topics on investment, risk and taxation. These short essays are both enjoyable and thought-provoking.

From the Back Cover:


The short essays collected in this book are accessible, instructive, relevant, and thought-provoking. They are accessible because they are written in a clear language, without technical jargon. They are instructive because they present valuable information and interesting interpretations and analyses of the author, some of them quite innovative. They are relevant because they touch on some of the most important issues of the economic and financial developments in the World during the last few years. They are thought-provoking because several of them discuss controversial questions which invite the reflections by the reader, especially if he does not find himself entirely in agreement with the author.

José da Silva Lopes, former Ministry of Finance and Governor of the Central Bank in Portugal

"Antonio Marques Mendes is one of Portugal's most erudite economists and original thinkers, who has mixed academic life with wide policy experience in the fields of banking and finance. In this delightful and entertaining collection of short essays, he gives his vision of the nature of capitalism, and challenges the reader to think in a non-orthodox way on many issues that affect the daily lifes of us all, including the role of the State in economic affairs, climate change, the media and financial regulation - not to mention Portugal's economic struggles. The book is short enough to be digested in one go, but the ideas can be savoured long into the future"

A.P.Thirlwall, University of Kent
