  • Encyclopedia of Keynesian Economics, An [HIL-REF HB99.7 .E528 1997]

    Over 100 international contributors provide in-depth coverage of the ideas and impact of Britain's John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946), one of the most influential modern economists. His most noteworthy book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money --generated partly to explain the Great Depression--provoked Nobel Prize-winning debates on his advocacy of government fiscal policies to increase employment and stimulate business activity. The three sections center on: biographies of economists who contributed to such debates; analysis of his absolute income hypothesis regarding the psychology governing consumption; and essays on the rise and apparent decline of Keynesian economics.

  • New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law, The [HIL-REF K487 .E3 N49 1998]

    A great deal of economics is in fact about law - the functioning of markets, property rights and their enforcement, financial obligations and so on. Yet these legal aspects and problems are almost never addressed in the academic study of economics. At the same time a great deal of law, an increasing proportion of litigation for example, is about economics, and yet the drafting and administration of laws often ignore economic principle.The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law is uniquely placed by the quality, breadth and depth of its coverage to address this need for building bridges. Drawn from the ranks of academics and professional lawyers and economists in eight countries, the 340 contributors include the leading exponents of their specialities. Among them are Nobel laureates in economics and eminent legal scholars.The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law will become a benchmark for reference of the highest quality.

    Citing Your Sources

    Citing Your Sources

    Accurate, properly formatted footnotes, reading lists, and bibliographies are hallmarks of good academic research. Through citing, you acknowledge the source of any ideas you mention in your writing, document your research, and provide the information your readers need to track down your sources.

    The standard citation style for Economics is American Psychological Association (APA) style, but your instructor may require or recommend that you use another.  Always check your course syllabus or ask your instructor to be sure you are using the correct citation style.

    Zotero is a software program that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, works with your web browser where you do your work, and best of all it's free.
