by Jesús Huerta de Sote
The new book titled "Socialism, Economic Calculation and Entrepreneurship" by Jesús Huerta de Sote is available in SSST Library. The book was donated by the Center for Business Affirmation (CPA). CPA promotes the value of entrepreneurs and their role in society, since without entrepreneurs there is no strong economy and prosperous state. For this reason, the CPA seeks to be a strong and honest partner in the entrepreneurial sector in order to change the current situation in BiH. The CPA promotes the policy and mentality which provides support in creating a stimulating business environment by reducing taxes, fees, regulations and the like.
The book presents and deals with one of the most important economic debates of the 20th century, which is the ability to carry out economic calculations in the planned socialist economy. The author extensively shares the views of Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich von Hayek, two significant representatives of the Austrian economic school, who primarily observed the problem of the planning economy at the level of the impossibility of performing mathematical calculations, because the prices and wages are managed and not left to market decentralized mechanisms.
The book "Socialism, Economic Clustering and Entrepreneurship" covers topics such as:
- The role of information in entrepreneurship and the way in which entrepreneurship works based on subjective dispersion information,
- Undertaking entrepreneurship within the sphere of socialism, and attempting to interfere with the free flow of information as the basis for the existence of creative entrepreneurship,
- Coordination within a market-oriented economy and dis-coordination in the planned socialist economy,
- Institutional coercion and interventionism,
- Debate on the possibility of economic calculation in socialism,
- A historical review of the discussion on the possibility of economic calculation in the socialist planning economy,
- Planometry and its possible reach,
- Multidimensionality and complexity of knowledge.
The publication of this work brings exceptional benefits and value to the academic community critically focused on reviewing the existing theoretical paradigms, but also for those who decide or will decide on Bosnia and Herzegovina's development policy.
