About the Authors
  • These lectures contain a masterful summing up of Nicholas Kaldor's critique of the foundations of mainstream economic theory. They provide a very clear account of his theoretical structures on regional differences, primary producers and manufacturers, and on differing market structures and the likely course of prices and quantities in different markets over time. The first four lectures are concerned with theory, history and explanation; the fifth consists of a detailed set of integrated policy proposals.

    • Offers a masterful summing-up of Nicholas Kaldor's critique of the foundations of mainstream economic theory.
    • Kaldor is one of the fathers of modern growth theory
    • He is the author of one of the most controversial critiques of mainstream theory this century
