PDF EBook by Christopher Brown

EBook Description

"Providing much needed context for current events like the sub- PDFprime mortgage crisis, this timely book presents a vision of an economy evolved to greater dependence on consumer credit and analyzes the trade-offs and risks associated with it. Inequality, Consumer Credit and the Saving Puzzle PDF EBook While synthesizing the Keynesian theory of consumption with the Institutional theory of habit selection (brought up to date with new knowledge from evolutionary biology and neuroscience), this book represents an in-depth treatment of the macroeconomic dimensions of consumer credit and implications of recent financial innovations from a non-traditional economic approach." The book's primary audience will be academic economists in sympathy with heterodox and pluralist approaches. It sets forth an institutional or 'top-down' theory of household spending behavior that should be of interest to readers in fields such as sociology, consumer or family studies, psychology, or anthropology. Much of the book is technically accessible for non-economists and students. Like this book? Read online this: Piano Theory Workbook Book 1, Inequality for All.
