The Collected Papers of James Meade 4V
First published by Unwin Hyman 1988-1990.
James Meade wrote and published on theoretical and applied problems in most fields of economics. He was always as concerned with problems of economics policy as with purely theoretical issues, and was one of the early British economists to serve in government.
Volume I: (0415-35050-6)
Contains his most important work on theoretical and applied aspects of employment and inflation from 1933-1985. Contributions range from pre-war papers on Keynesian economics to his proposals for tackling 'stagflation' in the 1970s and 1980s.
Volume II: (0415-35051-4)
Draws together Meade's work on Price Theory and Policy; Distribution; and Growth and Development.
Volume III: (0415-35052-2)
Covers papers on international economics, the field in which Meade received his Nobel Prize in 1977. This includes his important 1942 proposal for a post-war 'Commercial Union', which led ultimately to the Agreement on Tariffs and Trade in 1947, along with essays on the improvement of the world economic order from the 1930s to 1990.
Volume IV: (0415-35053-0)
Reprints the diary of Meade's involvement in the Economic Section of the Cabinet Office from November 1944 to October 1946. This work gives a fascinating and accessible insight into the workings of government during this crucial period in British economic history.
