Abstract

Mit der Formulierung der Allgemeinen Gleichgewichtstheorie liegt ein systematischer Ansatz in der ökonomischen Theoriegeschichte vor, die ökonomische Wissenschaft als eine den Naturwissenschaften analoge, exakte Wissenschaftsdisziplin auszuweisen und von der Moralsphäre abzugrenzen. Dieses utopische Ansinnen der Abgrenzung von ethischen Überlegungen führte mittels methodologischer Ummodellierungen jedoch nur zu einer kontinuierlichen Beschneidung der Aussagenreichweite der ökonomischen Wissenschaft und der Verschleierung der zugrundeliegenden Werturteile. Die Arbeit geht diesem Anspruch idealtypisch am Beispiel von L. Walras, F. Knight, L. Robbins und M. Friedman nach. Sie zeigt auf, dass die theoriegeschichtliche Entwicklung nicht eine kontinuierliche im Sinne des wissenschaftlichen Fortschritts darstellte und sucht die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Wissenschaft und Ethik aufzudecken.

Abstract

The economics profession has a lot to answer for. After the late 1970s, the ideas of influential economists have justified policies that have made the world more prone to economic crisis, remarkably less equal, more polluted and less secure than it might be. How could ideas and policies that proved to be such an abject failure come to dominate the economic landscape? By critically examining the work of the most famous economists of the neoliberal period including Alan Greenspan, Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman, the authors Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson demonstrate that many of those who rose to prominence did so primarily because of their defence of, and contribution to, rising corporate profits and not their ability to predict or explain economic events.An important and controversial book, 'The Profit Doctrine' exposes the uses and abuses of mainstream economic canons, identify those responsible and reaffirm the primacy of political economy.

Abstract

What can and can’t be copied is a matter of law, but also of aesthetics, culture, and economics. The act of copying, and the creation and transaction of rights relating to it, evokes fundamental notions of communication and censorship, of authorship and ownership—of privilege and property.This volume conceives a new history of copyright law that has its roots in a wide range of norms and practices. The essays reach back to the very material world of craftsmanship and mechanical inventions of Renaissance Italy where, in 1469, the German master printer Johannes of Speyer obtained a five-year exclusive privilege to print in Venice and its dominions. Along the intellectual journey that follows, we encounter John Milton who, in 1644 accused the English parliament of having been deceived by the ‘fraud of some old patentees and monopolizers in the trade of bookselling’ (i.e. the London Stationers’ Company). Later revisionary essays investigate the regulation of the printing press in the North American colonies as a provincial and somewhat crude version of European precedents, and how, in the revolutionary France of 1789, the subtle balance that the royal decrees had established between the interests of the author, the bookseller, and the public, was shattered by the abolition of the privilege system. Some of the essays also address the specific evolution of rights associated with the visual and performing arts.

The volume is a companion to the digital archive Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900), funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Privilege and Property is recommended in the Times Higher Education Textbook Guide (November, 2010).
