  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: List of economists
This is an alphabetical list of well-known economists.
Despite the extreme controversy surrounding larger economic issues, there is significant agreement among mainstream economists on the fundamentals of the subject, especially as reflected in microeconomics as opposed to macroeconomics.
Stanley Engerman is an economist and economic historian at the University of Rochester.

 List of economic systems Details, Meaning List of economic systems Article and Explanation Guide
Please note that there is often a strong correlation between certain ideologies, political systems and certain economic systems (for example, consider the meanings of the term "communism").
Typically, "left-wing" economic systems involve a greater role for society and/or the government to determine what gets produced, how it gets produced, and who gets the produced goods and services, with the aim of ensuring social justice and a more equitable distribution of wealth (see welfare state).
The primary concern of "left" economic systems is usually egalitarianism, while the primary concern of "right" economic systems is usually private property.

 Economic Systems
This strategy would lead society to a "market" or "capitalist" economic system, in which all of the factors of production were privately owned, and the government, or community, exerted the least possible influence over private economic decisions.
Economic systems have been devised in an attempt to deal with chronic problems that have plagued political economy since before the start of the industrial revolution.
All of the economic systems used today fall somewhere between the opposing ideals of a completely free market (which is a highly efficient engine of production) and a fully planned economy (which is a way to implement equal distribution of wealth).

 [A-List] Our Economic System: Why it must be scrapped
Yet conventional economists proceed as if the fewer restrictions on economic activity the better and we are in an era of globalisation when the giant corporations and banks are trying to reduce the remaining capacity governments have to regulate their economies.
The dominant "neo-classical" or "economic rationalist" assumption that a society functions best when all are free and encouraged to maximise their own individual advantage in competition with all others is patently ridiculous; that is a recipe for vicious inequality and the destruction of society and its ecosystems.
Thousands of students studying economics think they are learning about what happens in the economic realm of human behaviour and experience, but in fact they are only learning about an economy based on private capital and markets, and they are learning that no other kind of economic system exists or is worth thinking about.

 Macroeconomics
Macroeconomics is the economics sub-field of study that considers aggregate behavior, and the study of the sum of individual economic decisions.
This is in contrast to microeconomics, the study of the economic behaviour of individual consumers, firms, and industries.
Post-Keynesian economics represents a dissent from mainstream Keynesian economics, emphasizing the role of uncertainty and the historical process in macroeconomics.

The economic system is composed of people, institutions and their relationships to resources, such as the convention of property.
Many economic systems overlap each other in various areas (for example, the term "mixed economy" can be argued to include elements from various systems).
Typically, "left-wing" economic systems involve a greater role for society and/or the government to determine what gets produced, how it gets produced, and who gets the produced goods and services, with the stated aim of ensuring social justice and a more equitable distribution of wealth (see welfare state).

 Economic Reform, World Bank Newsletter - Johnson's Russia List 5-8-03   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
In the Soviet Union economic growth was subordinated to the strategic interests of the military-industrial complex.
Even during the 1950s and 1960s, the "golden" period of Soviet economic history, industrial growth was mainly stimulated by military and economic competition with the West, not by domestic needs.
While industrial and social development in both regions undeniably made great strides, the economic and social gap between them and the industrial countries remained (see table 1), and their economic structures hindered the expansion of internal markets and the introduction of intensive technologies.

 Comparative Economic Systems - Professor Satya Gabriel
Traditional courses in comparative economic systems (CES) were products of Cold War polemics: economic systems were categorized based upon the officially recognized distinction between an idealized set of dominant politico-economic institutions of the NATO countries (the "West") and a similarly idealized set of dominant politico-economic institutions of the CMEA countries (the "East").
It is worth noting that most economics students will not be familiar with these debates prior to taking this seminar and it is, therefore, not sufficient to rely upon prior knowledge of neoclassical or Marxian concepts (which may not have been learned in a history of economic and philosophical thought context).
One of the objectives of the course is for students to learn new theoretical tools and to sharpen existing knowledge of economics such that she can clearly and logically analyze the similarities and differences between economic systems and the underlying economic processes, including processes involving and shaping the production, circulation, and distribution of output.

LONDON -- Hundreds of Russian business leaders, politicians and their bodyguards gathered Thursday to present their case to investors at a packed Russian Economic Forum, an annual investment powwow that influential Alfa Bank president Pyotr Aven jokingly said was beginning to resemble a "Partkhozaktiv," the Soviet-era conference between party leaders and enterprise directors.
He said a fall to $18 per barrel would mean the Central Bank would stop being able to build its foreign currency reserves, while a drop to $14 would mean the end of the government's ability to preserve a budget surplus.

 State Proficiencies in Economics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Course Description Economics should include a study of the allocation of scarce resources and their alternative uses for satisfying human wants.
This course should examine basic models of decision-making at various levels and in different areas including: decisions made as a consumer, producer, saver, investor, and voter; business decisions to maximize profits; and public policy decisions in specific markets dealing with output, and prices in the national economy.
Explain that because of scarcity (the fact that productive resources are limited and cannot satisfy all human wants for goods and services), societies must develop economic systems to determine how goods and services will be produced and distributed.

His publications (both research and expository) include work on the economic theory of behavior under risk, nonlinear and chaotic dynamics in economics, the theory of fuzzy sets, topological and algebraic entropy, computer simulation of crop yield forecasting, and the use of symbolic mathematics software to simulate precision farming.
Expected utility theory, a creation of von Neumann and Morgenstern that has become the most widely used mathematical model of economic behavior under risk, represents risky situations as probability distributions and postulates that a rational individual chooses his or her "best" alternative by applying an individual preference ordering over a convex set of probability distributions.
Used widely in economics and other disciplines to model change over time, these systems are now known to be vulnerable to a kind of "chaotic," unpredictable behavior.
