This broadly-based book examines the development of the capitalistic system from antiquity to the modern welfare state and contemporary economic thought. It presupposes no mathematical or economics training and thus is accessible to general readers who wish to learn more about the economic system that plays such a significant role in their lives, while serving as a review for those serious students of the subject who wish to refresh their understanding. It is also a primary text for university centres for the study of free enterprise and for industry-oriented executive development programs, and acts as an ancillary text for college courses in business management, marketing, history, and political science.

A series of short books - arranged into thematic sections - provides state-of-the-art accounts of key areas within the discipline. Although never completed, the series produced several landmark books. It is notable for: * charting the emergence of vibrant new areas of economics (eg 'positive' political economy) * the numerous examples it gives of major innovations like game theory and the new institutional economics re-vitalizing traditional areas of economics * attracting some of the most talented economists of its generation, including Avinash Dixit, Drew Fudenberg, Thomas Palfrey and Jean Tirole This collection reprints the series in its entirety, making all titles available in hardback for the first time, either as individual volumes, or bound together in mini-sets organized by sub-discipline.

Why are house prices in many advanced economies rising faster than incomes? Why isn’t land and location taught or seen as important in modern economics? What is the relationship between the financial system and land? In this accessible but provocative guide to the economics of land and housing, the authors reveal how many of the key challenges facing modern economies - including housing crises, financial instability and growing inequalities - are intimately tied to the land economy. Looking at the ways in which discussions of land have been routinely excluded from both housing policy and economic theory, the authors show that in order to tackle these increasingly pressing issues a major rethink by both politicians and economists is required.
