1. Political Economy
Presenting a new macroeconomic synthesis
that integrates existing neoclassical economics with institutional economics,
information theory and Public Choice theory, to arrive at a better explanation
of poverty, unemployment, inflation and social welfare. This analysis includes
novel results in dynamics, taxation and social choice theory.
The main book DRGTPE
(2000, 2005, 2011) was written before the economic crisis of 2007+ but
the 3rd edition contains abstracts of papers written on that crisis. Some
papers on the crisis have been updated and collected in CSBH
(2012). Not all papers on the crisis are in CSBH however, see the crisis
2007+ page.

PM 1. See this communication,

PM 2. In 1990 I developed an analysis
on unemployment that also used a social welfare function. This first part
of the analysis led to CPB
90III38 and eventually DRGTPE. The second part led to CPB 90III37
and eventually VTFD. In 2000, after some 10 years, the (first editions
of the) books were finally available. This means that the arguments in
various older papers below have been refined, and have been combined and
put into perspective. Not all points have been included in the book though,
so I keep the papers still listed. Also, the analysis will require model
calculations for a real national economy before it can be truly implemented.
