The Growing Economy: Principles of Political Economy Volume II - Collected Works of James Meade (Hardback)James E. Meade (author)
- We can order this
First published in 1968, this is the second part of Professor Meade's Principles of Political Economy, which presents a systematic treatment of the whole field of economic analysis in the form of a series of simplified models which are specifically designed to show the interconnections between the various specialist fields of economic theory.
In this volume, Professor Meade is concerned with the theory of economic growth and the rates at which various economic quantities are growing. In order to do this, he introduces capital goods into the system and allows for growth through capital accumulation, population expansion and technical progress. His analysis is divided into two models: a one product model and a many-product model.

`It is a long time since anyone attempted to write a treatise ... on economic analysis in general ... This is a splendid and bold idea. Professor Meade is a master of lucid and rigorous theoretical exposition.' - The Economist
`It is outstandingly lucid. And, by bringing the basic notions of activity analysis and linear programming together by traditional price theory, it performs a much needed piece of synthesis at an elementary level.' - New Society
