Abstract

New book announcement: Go Tell the Crocodiles / Vai dizer aos crocodilos

I wanted to share a bit about my book, Go Tell the Crocodiles: Chasing Prosperity in Mozambique, published by the New Press in February. The book explores the efforts of ordinary people to provide for themselves where foreign aid, the formal economy, and the government have fallen short during a period when Mozambique has been lauded for its transition to democracy and high economic growth.

An H-PC member has recently published a book. This interesting book focuses on a greatly under-explored topic of how the Chinese cen- tral government governs civil service pay.

CFP: Interdisziplinärer Workshop: Gleichgewicht und Ökonomie, Tübingen (01.06.2018)

Im Kontext des Promotionsverbunds „Theorie der Balance“, erforscht der Workshop den Zusammenhang von Ökonomie und Gleichgewicht aus interdisziplinärer Perspektive. Ökonomisches Denken ist seit Adam Smith und Karl Marx geprägt von einem Diskurs des Gleichgewichts, der Stabilität und des Ausgleichs. Bei Smith wird die Stabilität garantiert durch die Selbstregulierung des Marktes – die unsichtbare Hand, die hinter dem Rücken der Einzelinteressen das Wohl des Gemeinwesens fördert. Smith versöhnt so das unreglementierte Marktgeschehen mit dem Ideal einer stabilen Marktwirtschaft.
