<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The European Imperative</span>The European Imperative
by Stuart Holland

1992 was supposed to be the greatest year in the history of the European Community since the signature of the Rome Treaty in 1957. In fact, the result of the first Danish referendum, the strains on the exchange rate mechanism of the EMS, and deepening recession threw it into the biggest crisis since President de Gaulle pulled France out of the Council of Ministers in 1965.

In this report to the EC Commission, Stuart Holland argues that reinforcing the European project is imperative for economic and social progress in its member states. National sovereignty has been eroded by mulitnational capital, finance and trade. Member states need to act jointly through the Community to achieve objectives such as full employment, rights at work and welfare.

Alternatives for the Global Economy
By Stuart Holland

Castigating the IMF and the World Bank for their structural adjustment policies, Stuart Holland also critizes the limits of the GATT paradigm of international trade in an era which both investment and trade are determined by mulitnational companies. He argues the evidence shows that trade liberalisation of itself does not maximise global welfare or employment, and claims that the unemployment trend for main regions of the world economy is potentially catastrophic.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The Market Economy</span>The Market Economy
From Micro to Mesoeconomics
By Stuart Holland

In The Market Economy Stuart Holland exposes the unreal foundations of conventional microeconomic theory and looks at the way in which a few dozen firms command the output and trade of the world's leading economies. Extending oligopoly power, these firms impose unequal conditions of competition in the market. In contrast with the traditional theory of the firm and industry, big business is now multiproduct, multisectoral, multiregional and multinational. It dominates both the microeconomy of small firms and national macroeconomics policies and performance. New principles and policies, the author argues, are required to explain and counteract such concentrated market power.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The Global Economy</span>The Global Economy
From Meso to Macroeconomics
By Stuart Holland

The Global Market Economy considers the macroeconomic implications of mesoeconomic power. The global reach of multinational companies has transformed Ricardo's model of international trade, Multinationals comprise Keynesian demand-management policies, erode export competitiveness in the US and UK, diminish tax revenues through transfer pricing, and reduce the effectiveness of monetary policy.

The author shows how public spending sustains rather than drains the private sector, and demonstrates that structural crisis in the global economy has been aggravated by multinational money markets and deflationary monetarist policies.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>Beyond Capitalist Planning</span>Beyond Capitalist Planning
Edited by Stuart Holland

This work is the first to engage international contributors from four key Western European countries on the questions of economic planning. It demonstrates that planning can at best only modify the composition and rate of development when this is dependent on private profit expectations and on private criteria for the production of goods and services. It argues that capitalism cannot be planned in a welfare state context, and that a new model of development is needed, based on fundamental change in the mode and relations of production.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The Uncommon Market</span>The Uncommon Market
By Stuart Holland

In Uncommon Market, Stuart Holland provides a devastating expose of the yawning gap between the theory and practice, aims and achievements of the European Community. The elected Assembly is but a fig leaf on the centralisation of power in the hands of big business and the bureaucracy.

Contrasting the supranational aims of European federalists with this reality, Stuart Holland argues that only radical changes can make possible the kind of autonomous outward-looking internationalism advocated by supporters of a Community of Europe.
