Is Economics Relevant?: Reader in Political Economics

Is Economics Relevant?: Reader in Political Economics by Robert L Heilbroner, Arthur M. Ford
English | 1971 | ISBN: 0876204450 | 315 Pages | PDF | 30.8 MB

This reader in political economics serves a double purpose. It demonstrates that economics can be relevant while pointing up the reasons why it often is not- why it frequently refuses to ask the questions that might more clearly illumine sociefy; why it sometimes gets unsatisfactory answers to the questions it does ask; and why it too often fails to offer the historic and philosophic guidance we seek.

Energy Law and Economics

Energy Law and Economics By Klaus Mathis
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 375 Pages | ISBN : 3319746359 | 6.52 MB

This book offers an edited volume for all readers who wish to gain an in-depth grasp of the economic analysis of recent developments in energy law and policy in Europe and the United States. In response to waning resources and heightened environmental awareness, many countries are now seeking to redefine their energy mix. Several energy sources are available: coal and oil, natural gas, and a variety of renewables. Yet which of them are capable of addressing core energy-related concerns? Reliability, security, affordability, fairness, and sustainability all have to be taken into account. Further, once a target mix has been identified, two challenges remain for legal scholars: what role does the law play in achieving a specified energy mix, and, how can the law best fulfill that role? The essential energy concerns are just as important in defining the way we shape our energy mix as they are in defining the mix itself.
