Description - Encyclopedia of Political Economy by Phillip O'Hara
This pathbreaking Encyclopedia is the very first fully refereed A-Z compendium of the main principles, concepts, problems, institutions, schools and policies associated with political economy. Based on developments in political economy since the 1960s, it is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the field as well as being an authoritative reference work. Undergraduates taking courses in political economy or graduate students coming to the field for the first time will come to rely on this work as a key point of reference and for direction in their further reading. Anyone engaged in the study of economics more generally will benefit hugely from the context the Encyclopedia provides and from exposure to the wide-ranging issues with which it deals. This lucid work emphasizes the application of principles to real world problems such as inflation, unemployment, development and financial instability. The extensive international team of consultants and contributors have produced a monumental work with global perspective and relevance in today's world.
