            A radical new approach to economic policy that addresses the symptoms and causes of inequality in Western society today Fueled by populism and the frustrations of the disenfranchised, the past few years have witnessed the widespread rejection of the economic and political order t...hat Western countries built up after 1945. Political debates have turned into violent clashes between those who want to take their country back and those viewed as defending an elitist, broken, and unpatriotic social contract. There seems to be an increasing polarization of values. The Economics of Belonging argues that we should step back and take a fresh look at the root causes of our current challenges. In this original, engaging book, Martin Sandbu argues that economics remains at the heart of our widening inequality and it is only by focusing on the right policies that we can address it. He proposes a detailed, radical plan for creating a just economy where everyone can belong. Sandbu demonstrates that the rising numbers of the left behind are not due to globalization gone too far. Rather, technological change and flawed but avoidable domestic policies have eroded the foundations of an economy in which everyone can participate-and would have done so even with a much less globalized economy. Sandbu contends that we have to double down on economic openness while pursuing dramatic reforms involving productivity, regional development, support for small- and medium-sized businesses, and increased worker representation. He discusses how a more active macroeconomic policy, education for all, universal basic income, and better taxation of capital could work together for society's benefit. Offering real answers, not invective, for facing our most serious political issues, The Economics of Belonging shows how a better economic system can work for all.

            'This is a beautifully written and important book. Read it' Martin Wolf, Financial Times From world-renowned economist Paul Collier, a candid diagnosis of the failures of capitalism and a pragmatic and realistic vision for how we can repair it Deep new rifts are tearing apart the... fabric of Britain and other Western societies: thriving cities versus the provinces, the highly skilled elite versus the less educated, wealthy versus developing countries. As these divides deepen, we have lost the sense of ethical obligation to others that was crucial to the rise of post-war social democracy. So far these rifts have been answered only by the revivalist ideologies of populism and socialism, leading to the seismic upheavals of Trump, Brexit and the return of the far right in Germany. We have heard many critiques of capitalism but no one has laid out a realistic way to fix it, until now. In a passionate and polemical book, celebrated economist Paul Collier outlines brilliantly original and ethical ways of healing these rifts - economic, social and cultural - with the cool head of pragmatism, rather than the fervour of ideological revivalism. He reveals how he has personally lived across these three divides, moving from working-class Sheffield to hyper-competitive Oxford, and working between Britain and Africa, and acknowledges some of the failings of his profession. Drawing on his own solutions as well as ideas from some of the world's most distinguished social scientists, he shows us how to save capitalism from itself - and free ourselves from the intellectual baggage of the 20th century. These times are in desperate need of Paul Collier's insights. The Future of Capitalism restores common sense to our views of morality, as it also describes their critical role in what makes families, organizations, and nations work. It is the most revolutionary work of social science since Keynes. Let's hope it will also be the most influential - George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate in Economics,

            Who really creates wealth in our world? And how do we decide the value of what they do? In modern capitalism, value-extraction - the siphoning off of profits, from shareholders' dividends to bankers' bonuses - is rewarded more highly than value-creation- the productive process th...at drives a healthy economy and society. We misidentify takers as makers, and have lost sight of what value really means. Yet, argues Mariana Mazzucato in this penetrating and passionate new book, if we are to reform capitalism we urgently need to rethink where wealth comes from. Who is creating it, who is extracting it, and who is destroying it?

            The fifth edition of Economic Concepts and Applications continues to echo the great nineteenth-century economist, Alfred Marshall, who said that economics is 'a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life'. Economics, at its core, is about making decisions: the course of st...udy chosen by a student; the job chosen by a job seeker; the goods purchased by a consumer; the crops planted by a farmer; the pricing decisions of a producer; a government's decision to raise or lower taxes - all are economic decisions and have economic consequences. Some decisions have little impact on the economy, while others can have a global impact. This text aims to help the reader apply economic concepts and models to the real world. The fifth edition of this popular textbook covers economic concepts, theories and models required by students of introductory economics courses. The author seeks to show students how economic tools can be used to understand the economic forces present in our daily lives. Global warming and globalisation are examples of contemporary issues raised for discussion. The text has a clear flow of essential economic principles and uses appendices to elaborate on more technical content.

            New Zealanders work harder and earn less than most other people in the developed world. Get Off the Grass is about how we can change that. In a brilliant intellectual adventure that takes us from David Ricardo and Adam Smith to economic geography and the science of complex networ...ks, Shaun Hendy and Paul Callaghan tell us to 'get off the grass!' and start exporting knowledge rather than nature. The key to increasing New Zealand's prosperity, they argue, is innovation in high-tech niches. If we are going catch up with the countries that lure our young people away, we will need to learn to innovate like a city of four million people; we will need to start taking science seriously; we will need to start seeing ourselves as people of learning, not just of the land - and we will need to put our money where our mouths are.
