Handbook
A Comparative Approach
Olivier Blanchard, former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), is author of one of the most important standard macroeconomics textbooks, which is used throughout the world. Endorsed by Blanchard himself, Anti-Blanchard Macroeconomics critically analyzes prevailing economic theory and policy in comparison with alternative approaches. This thoroughly revised edition represents a field of research that has developed through intense theoretical debates, continual empirical testing and the resultant disputes about economic policy.

A Complex Dynamic Approach
Piero Ferri expertly broadens the analysis of the canonical growth cycle approach by presenting a Minsky–Harrod model, examining how the relationship between income distribution, growth and unemployment becomes increasingly complex. Exploring this new technique to generate a process of growth, based not only on history but disequilibrium, he investigates the current income distribution debate further and the challenges it faces.

Handbook
As a whole this book adds the ‘Keynes’-component (K) to the Goodwinian vision of a ‘MKS-System’. It first provides a reconsideration of prominent past approaches towards the formation of Keynesian macrodynamics. Ultimately it aims to integrate Marx's Distributive Cycle and aspects of Schumpeter's reformulation of socialism and democracy theory, with Keynes' macro-theory of a ‘Tripartite Market Hierarchy’. This regards financial markets as being at the top, followed by goods markets which in turn are followed by the weakest element, the labor markets. It is completed by certain repercussions that influence the central causal nexus of these three fundamental macro-markets in the longer-run.

The Rise of Worker-Controlled Firms
This book revolves around the idea that capitalism is not a democratic system and that a system of producer cooperatives, or democratically managed enterprises, gives rise to a new mode of production which is authentically socialist in essence and fully consistent with the ultimate rationale underlying Marx’s theoretical approach. The author argues that the cooperative firm system outlined in this book offers a rich array of non-economic benefits that justify its classification as a ‘genuinely socialist’ entity, with real potential for achieving true economic democracy.

Towards an Alternative Future
After being proclaimed dead, there is now a major revival of socialism ideology in the West. But what does socialism mean? This book shows that it is irretrievably associated with common ownership. The twentieth-century experience of comprehensive national planning with state ownership has been disastrous, and in no case has democracy endured within large-scale socialism. This volume explains why. The alternative socialist option of worker-owned cooperatives must accept a major role for markets that many socialists reject. Further experiments in that direction must be subordinate to higher principles of liberal solidarity, involving a mixed market economy with a welfare state.
