Patrick Grady, Canadian Journal of Economics "This collaborative volume presents insightful discussions of econometric models and their developments. This authoritative and complete work is a must for anyone concerned with macroeconometric modeling. E. Kacapyr, Choice" Authenticity us thus a major attribute of the book, and guarantees that it will become a permanent and authoritative reference in the history of macroeconometric modeling.... In a generally outstanding book, there are a few particularly strong parts that warrant special mention. The material on intellectual antecedents and on the earliest experiences with model-building in the 1930s and '40s is exceptionally well done.... What really sings, however, is Anton Barten's chapter on the Dutch experience which itself spans the entire period 1936-1986; it is an absolute gem-a microcosm of the entire book, and the indispensable "executive summary" for those who want to know but are too busy to read more than one chapter.' -Saul H. Hymans, Journal of Economic Literature This major book presents, for the first time, an authoritative history of developments in macroeconometric modelling since the 1930s. It focuses in particular on the construction of mathematico-statistical models of entire economies, estimated from national accounts and other macroeconomic data. International and comparative in scope, the book contains chapters prepared by specialists from the different countries concerned. This landmark book is indispensable to an understanding of the history and development of large scale econometric models of modern economies.


A Wealth Of Buildings

This two-volume book explores how the great buildings of England bear witness to a thousand years of the nation's history. In every age, investment in iconic buildings reaches a climax when the prevailing mode of production is operating most effectively, surplus wealth is most plentiful, and the dominant class rules supreme. During such periods of stability and prosperity, the demand for new buildings is strong, structural and stylistic innovations abound, and there is fierce competition to build for lasting fame. Each such climax produces a unique vintage of buildings that are an expression of cultural hegemony. They are monuments to the wealth and power of those who ruled their world.

This first volume provides an introduction to the study and a review of wealth accumulation over the past millennium. There follow three case studies of iconic building investment from the eleventh to the seventeenth century. During the eleventh and twelfth centuries the conquering Norman kings and barons erected castles throughout the country to cement their feudal power. During the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries the great wealth of the ecclesiastical estates funded the lavish construction of Gothic cathedrals and abbeys. During the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries Tudor and Jacobean magnates vied to build the mostmagnificent palaces and prodigy houses. The English Revolution brought this era to a close.

This second volume presents three case studies of iconic building investment from the eighteenth century to the present day. During the eighteenth century the wealth of the great landed estates funded the golden age of country house building by aristocracy and gentry. During the nineteenth century the Industrial Revolution unleashed an unprecedented wave of infrastructure investment and civic building by the ascendant capitalist class. Since the late twentieth century the power of global financial capital has been symbolized by the relentless rise of city centre office towers. A final chapter argues that these different forms of hegemonic building are a physical manifestation of the underlying rhythm of English history.


The Wealth Of Nations

Michael J. Chan argues, on a methodological level, for the deeper integration of iconographic materials into the task of tradition history--a method that has tended to focus on textual evidence alone. Following the work of O.H. Steck, however, "tradition" is understood in more flexible terms, to refer to inherited concepts and constellations, which can exist across multiple media. The author undertakes a tradition-historical study of the "Wealth of Nations Tradition"--a series of texts in which the foreign nations of the earth bring their wealth to Zion. The Wealth of Nations tradition is found throughout the ancient Near East. Michael J. Chan shows that in some cases, the biblical texts reflect this tradition with little to no modification while in others the tradition is recast in creative and disruptive ways.


Building Theories

This book explores significant and timely topics for both the design and construction of contemporary architecture by challenging its very practice of theory. It proposes an alternative definition of architectural theory; one that is able and willing to confront the many contradictions now faced by designers, architects, engineers, and builders who negotiate often overwhelming technological imperatives. It valorises the, as yet, untapped potential of thinking through building, preparing the foundations for a critical return to the art of making that is architecture.
