This collection of essays attempts to evaluate Luigi Pasinetti's contribution and to give new insights into the issues which he has illuminated. The volume also provides a general assessment of the significance of a number of key issues of the 'pure' Post-Keynesian School of economic thought, which has, and still has, its strong hold in the University of Cambridge, and to which Luigi Pasinetti has become the 'senior heir' since the deaths of the founding members, Piero Sraffa, Joan Robinson, Nicholas Kaldor and Richard Kahn in the 1980s.

The mass of information and stylized facts available on the economics of technical change and industrial innovation has grown immense. This abundance reflects the importance of these phenomena to the understanding of economic growth. This book attempts to distill this unwieldy quantity of information down to a few analytical principles that should enable the reader to understand the factors of technological competitiveness and the links between scientific and technical dynamics and the wealth of nations.

This book provides an enduring response to modern economic problems and the consequent crises, dealing with the economic modelling of nations and the forecasting of economic growth. The main arguments embodied constitute the creation of jobs and the restoration of economic growth, using the implicit acceptance of analysis on differential models and neutral systems for controlling the wealth of nations.

Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations is regarded by many as the most important text in the history of economics. Jerry Evensky's analysis of this landmark book walks the reader through the five 'Books' of The Wealth of Nations, analyzing Smith's terms and assumptions and how they are developed into statements about economic processes in Book I, his representation of the dynamics of economics systems in Book II, and his empirical case for his model in Book III. With that framework in place, Evensky examines Smith's critique of alternative models, mercantilism and physiocracy, in Book IV, and Smith's presentation of the policy implications of his analysis presented in Book V. This guide highlights the nexus of Smith's economics and his work on ethics and jurisprudence, and in doing so Evensky sets his examination of The Wealth of Nations into a larger, holistic analysis of Smith's moral philosophy.

Smith's seminal work, The Wealth of Nations, aims to create a new understanding of economics. Smith writes largely against the mercantile system that existed at the time of writing, but, along the way, gives a complicated but brilliant account of an economic system based in human nature and deeply rooted social dynamics. The text is characterized by fact-heavy digressions, tables, and appendices that blend hard research with broad generalities, demonstrating his commitment to give evidence for what seem like timeless observations about the nature of economics. Books I and II focus on developing the idea of the division of labor, and describing how this division adds to the opulence of a given society by creating enormous surpluses, which can be exchanged among members. The division of labor also fuels technological innovation, by giving intense focus to certain tasks, and allowing workers to brainstorm ways to make these tasks more efficient. This, again, adds to efficiency and grows surpluses. Surpluses, Smith writes, may be either traded or re-invested. In the latter case, technologies are likely to improve, leading to even greater efficiencies.
