About the Book
This Encyclopaedia is organized alphabetically into over 385 entries covering the whole spectrum of political economy. It provides fundamental ideas and arguments drawn from traditional, classical and neoclassical analysis of political economics. Entries included in these volumes fall broadly within the lines of thought associated with the work of the classical political economists-Marx, Keynes, and Sraffa and others, while the majority of entries are theoretical and historical in emphasis. Economic and political behaviour in relation to other fields is the major issue the Encyclopaedia tries to bring out. This Encyclopaedia also stresses the importance of economic regionalism, multinational corporations and financial upheavals of post-colonial era. It also employs the conventional theory of international trade, insides from the theory of industrial organization, and endogenous growth theory. In addition, ideas from political science, history, and other disciplines are incorporated to enrich understanding of the new political economic order. This wide-ranging work is destined to become a landmark in the field of political economy. This Encyclopaedia is a challenge to orthodox economic assumptions.
