about this item
Beyond Conventional Economics: Selected Works of E Ray Canterbery presents a collation of Canterbery's many contributions to economics. This volume marks the first time that his complete works have been presented, with the scope of the works ranging from microeconomics and macroeconomics to history of thought and methodology. If there is one theme that connects the contributions, it is Canterbery's long-abiding concern with the income and wealth distributions. They are front-and-center in his microeconomics, macroeconomics, history of thought, and even some of his theories of foreign exchange and speculation. Persona who appear in these pages include Abba Lerner, Harry Johnson, Hyman Minsky, Michal Kalecki, Pierro Sraffa, Kenneth Boulding, John Rawls, Robert Nozick, Alfred Eichner, Thorstein Veblen, John Kenneth Galbraith, Joan Robinson, Ayn Rand, Ronald Coase, Lester Thurow, Sven Arnt, and H Peter Gray. Canterbery's policy ideas still have relevance today, as some have been adopted worldwide. For example, in foreign exchange, his delayed peg has been utilitzed in countries that shy away from completely "free" exchange rates. His criticism of monetary policy decision-making contributed to the idea of more frequent reporting on changes in the federal funds rate.
