COLLECTED WRITINGS OF DWIGHT D. MURPHEY

***************************************************************

 

For Your Special Attention:

Books on the Future of Capitalism

                Because he sees it as of especial importance relative to the economy both in the present and as it undergoes radical change in the future, Murphey directs readers' attention to his recent A 'Shared Market Economy: A Classical Liberal Rethinks the Market System, which can be accessed by clicking on its title here.  Subject only to the limitations stated below under "Permission to Reproduce and Republish," the book is "in the public domain," available free of charge for opening, downloading and copying.  It would be well to read, in connection with the book itself, the article on monetary reconstruction (A105 here), since it addresses how the monetary and banking systems can be reconstituted to support a shared market economy.

                    In 2011, Murphey compiled a book entitled The Great Economic Debacle -- and Beyond: Reviews and Commentary, consisting of a number of his articles and book reviews on the American economic plight.  It continues the discussion of the points raised in A Shared Market Economy.  It is not included now in the form of that book, because the various articles and reviews are present here in their original form.  The chapter numbers and their corresponding sources on this site are:

                   Chapter 1, book review (BR) 127, of David Smick's "The World is Curved";           Chapter 2, BR142, of Alan Greenspan's "The Age of Turbulence";  Chapter 3, BR138, of Henry Kaufman's "The Road to Financial Ruin"; Chapter 4, Article 101 (A101); reviews of articles by Charles Morris, Daniel    Gross and Robert Barbera; Chapter 5, BR137, of Justin Fox's "The Myth of the Rational Market"; Chapter 6, BR122, of William Fleckenstein's "Greenspan's Bubbles"; Chapter 7, BR 141, of Henry Paulson's "On the Brink"; Chapter 8, A102, of David Wessel's "In Fed We Trust"; Chapter 9, BR139, of Joseph Stiglitz's "Freefall"; Chapter 10, BR134, of Pat Choate's "Saving Capitalism"; Chapter 11, BR128, of John Bogle's "Enough" and "The Battle for the Soul  of Capitalism"; Chapter 12, A103, of Richard Posner's "The Crisis of Capitalist Democracy"; Chapter 13, BR140, of Paul Craig Robert's "How the Economy was Lost"; Chapter 14, A68, review of ten books on the global economy; Chapter 15, from the book A Shared Market Economy (SME), Chap.s 6 and 8, (see the first paragraph of this site); Chapter 16, A100 and A77, article "A Critique of the Central Concepts of Free Market Theory"; Chapter 17, SME, excerpts from Chap.s 3, 17 and 18 on the "shared market economy" proposal.

       The book in printed form may be obtained at a price of $18, plus $4.50 postage to destinations in the United States or $6.50 to those outside the country.  Orders should be sent to the Council for Social and Economic Studies, 1133 13th St., NW, #C-2, Washington, DC 20005; or by e-mail to socecon@aol.com; or by FAX to 202-371-1523.

Use of this Web site

              This "home page"  includes a Table of Publications listing Murphey's work by the published title.   The Table of Publications is divided, respectively,  into sections for (a) books, (b)  monographs, (c) published articles, (d) book reviews, (e) reviews by others, (f) miscellaneous other published  work, (g) correspondence, and  (h) unpublished work.  Within each category, the items will be listed with the most recent appearing first.

               The Index will be extremely helpful in finding items by name and subject.  The user can go to the Index by hyperlink (see below).  The items are numbered as an aid to looking them up by the Index.  An example of the numbering: A3 would be article #3; B7 would be book #7. 

               In the Table of Publications, the items that have already  been placed on this Web site are marked with an asterisk, to save you time clicking on what you think will be a hyperlink only to find that the particular site is "under construction."  (Actually, hyperlinks are indicated in other ways, too; but it seems the asterisk will be helpful.)  Clicking on the hyperlink for a book title will lead you to the book's table of contents.  Within that table of contents, the chapters that presently appear on this site will themselves be indicated with an asterisk.

               Because there is a large volume of work going back over half a century, there has been an on-going process of adding additional material to this site.   All of Murphey's written material has been included (with such minor exceptions as may sometime be discovered).  Material still to be written will be added as time passes.  All items in the Table of Publications may also be read in the Archives of the Wichita State University library or obtained from the author, whose address is Dwight D. Murphey, 2412 N. Hathway Circle, Wichita, KS 67226.  The Web site was first established in 2002.

            Murphey invites comments and discussion.  He may be contacted at dwightmurphey@sbcglobal.net
