Sample text

In each case at least two dimensions can be identified. Equilibrium can relate to the entire economy (general equilibrium) or to a subset of the economy (partial equilibrium) or to the individual. Equilibrium can be considered for a single all-encompassing period (static equilibrium), or for a succession of self-contained periods (temporary equilibrium) or for a succession of related sub-periods (intertemporal equilibrium). Examining this further, we note that equilibrium as a balance of forces (as the word implies)1 in some sense is at the base of all other equilibrium concepts.

Third: since equilibrium relations exist between the successive actions of a person only in so far as they are part of the execution of the same plan, any change in the relevant knowledge of the person, that is, any change which leads him to alter his plan, disrupts the equilibrium relations between his actions taken before and those taken after the change in his knowledge. In other words, the equilibrium relationship comprises only his actions during the period in which his anticipations prove correct.

That is, we must recognize the existence and importance of different individual evaluations, even of the same things. Capitalist economies are changing economies. How do they cope with change? Outline The main body of this book is divided into three parts. Part I, consisting of two chapters, examines the concept of equilibrium and its relationship to change. Chapter 2 investigates the concept of equilibrium in the context of the enduring debate in modern Austrian economics about the presence or absence of equilibrating tendencies.
