Regional Economic Problems

Regional Economic Problems

Author: A. J. Brown, E. M. Burrows Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/12/2018

Originally published in 1977. This book provides the first concise non-technical account of what the main kinds of regional problems are, how they arise, and the kinds of policy which have been used to tackle them in the UK, USA and Western Europe. The book starts with a discussion of why regional problems really are situations which call for special action, followed by a short preliminary classification of problem regions (including those in the less developed countries), then on to a more detailed survey of the origins and experience of selected problem regions in the more developed market economies. The authors focus on four broad kinds of problem region; agricultural regions, coal mining regions, old textile regions, and so-called congested regions. They conclude with a selective survey of regional policies in these more advanced economies, distinguishing and comparing the main trends and the different national styles.

Applied Economics

Applied Economics

Author: A. J. Brown Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/10/2010

Among the issues discussed in Applied Economics are world population growth and the economic factors governing international migration: issues that are as pertinent today as when the book was originally published. The problems of defining and comparing industrial and general efficiency in different economies are also discussed, using comparative studies from the UK and USA. The opportunities for analysing the pattern of world trade and the reasons for the varying degrees of national dependence on external trade, as well as the concentration of world export in particular channels are also examined.

Introduction to the World Economy

Author: A J Brown Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/10/2010

Well constructed and thoroughly competent - The Economist It is refreshingly differentThe new-comer to economics who studies this book should find it an interesting and invigorating task - Economic Journal This book introduces readers to some of the salient features and problems of the world economy and gives some indication of the main ways in which economists set about the task of analyzing them. After a general account of what economies are and how they work, the book's discussion develops with reference to broad statistical facts in relation to the following issues: why the world economy is as we find it; why productivity varies from one community to another; how prices are formed; how national economies have grown; what determines an economy's occupational structure; how local specialization comes about; how the pattern of international trade has grown and changed and what the main sources of insecurity in economic life are.

World Inflation since 1950

World Inflation since 1950

Author: A. J. Brown, Jane Darby Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/08/2010

This 1985 book is a comparative study of the origins and experience of inflation from 1950 until the 1980s in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, West Germany, France, and Italy, and in the world economy as a whole. It looks at the history of inflation, and the relationship of changes in rates of inflation and real income growth. Further chapters look at the kinds of inflationary impulse and their origins (particularly with regard to the money supply and the labour market), the role of expectations, the apparent effects of inflation on income distribution, the level of unemployment and the rate of economic growth. The final chapter looks at the effects on inflation of the depression of 1979-82, and draws the conclusions together. The book thus attempts a geographically broader study of inflationary experience than had previously been presented.
