  Die Ökonomie des eCommerce - New Economy, Digitale Ökonomie und realwirtschaftliche Auswirkungen, Metropolis Verlag, Marburg, 2002 (with M. Latzer)

"Im vorliegenden Band stellen Michael Latzer und Stefan W. Schmitz die methodischen Grundlagen der ökonomischen Analyse des eCommerce erstmals in einem größeren makro- und industrieökonomischen Zusammenhang dar. Die ausführliche und detaillierte Darstellung der New Economy-Debatte in den USA lässt die Euphorie der 90er Jahre in gänzlich neuem Licht erscheinen.
Anhand des von ihnen eingeführten Konzepts der Digitalen Ökonomie erklären sie Unternehmensstrategien, die im Informations- und Kommunikations-Sektor sowie im Medien-Sektor zunehmend Verbreitung finden, und leiten daraus Herausforderungen für die Wettbewerbspolitik der Zukunft ab.
Die Autoren widerlegen zahlreiche populäre Hypothesen zu den "revolutionären" Auswirkungen des eCommerce auf den Wettbewerb, die Wertschöpfungskette, die Standortwahl sowie die Beschäftigung. Sie diskutieren zukünftige Entwicklungen in diesen Bereichen ebenso wie den unumgänglichen Transformationsprozess von Form, Inhalt und Ablauf der Politik." (Klappentext)

  Carl Menger and the Evolution of Payment Systems: From Barter to Electronic Money, Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, (co-edited with M. Latzer)

"Carrying out this translation was a splendid idea. Menger has been enormously influential on the development of money and his influence has been increasing in recent years. Yet this publication for the first time makes available in English his long article on "Money". It can now reach the audience it deserves. It reveals in full the distinctiveness of Menger's vision of historical development with its powerful case for the transactions cost explanation of the emergence of money. It has been set in context with admirable contributions from several leading scholars in the field. It will be widely used."
Forest H. Capie, Professor of Economics, City University Business School, London, UK

"Carl Menger is of immense importance in the development of monetary economics. He built on the work of Adam Smith, showing how money evolved as a result of individuals trying to better themselves and was not, as some have claimed, an invention of a benevolent state. But despite Menger's importance, there is remarkably little written on him in English, and some even of his most important work remains untranslated. This excellent book goes far to remedy this situation. It is a major contribution to the history of economic thought. Furthermore it develops Menger's analysis of transactions so as to illuminate and advance discussions on the prospects for electronic money, an important topic in modern monetary theory. This is a fascinating, well written, and important book."
Geoffrey E. Wood, Professor of Economics, City University Business School, London, UK

"This is a fascinating conglomeration of a book. The volume will appeal equally to historians of economic thought and to economists who wish to explore the implications of the recent emergence of electronic money. Seldom has the relevance of the Mengerian research tradition for understanding the evolution of contemporary social institutions been more powerfully demonstrated."
Bruce Caldwell, Professor of Economics, University of North Carolina, Greensboro, USA

"The book edited by Michael Latzer and Stefan W. Schmitz is a very exciting book. It creates an intellectual link between the past and the future. It makes it possible for readers to better know the fundamental insights of Carl Menger about money; but it also provides an outstanding analysis of possible developments of electronic money, demonstrating that they cannot be understood without looking back at the theoretical debate about money initiated by Carl Menger. For those interested in money and its future, this book is unique."

  Reviews
"Zweifelsohne handelt es sich bei der vorliegenden Publikation um einen sehr wichtigen Beitrag zur Diskussion um die Entwicklungstendenzen der digitalen Ökonomie in Österreich und die daraus resultierenden Herausforderungen für die Politik. Es ist zu hoffen, dass der Band unter Beratern und Entscheidungsträgern im Bereich der Wirtschafts-, Rechts-, Medien- und Bildungspolitik Verbreitung und Beachtung findet."
Michael Mesch, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft 28 (3)

"Ein großer Verdienst des Buches liegt in der Lust zur Entmystifizierung. Eine Reihe von gängigen Vermutungen über den Gegenstandsbereich wird falsifiziert bzw. in den Zweifel gezogen. (Das Buch gibt) einen guten Überblick über die technoökonomischen Grundzusammenhänge der Wirtschaftsweise im Informationszeitalter und einige seiner politischen Herausforderungen (...) und in Verbindung mit aktuellem empirischen Material Qualität und Status eines ausgezeichneten Einführungswerks beanspruchen kann, das nicht - wie viele solcher Werke - in reine Apologie seines Gegenstands verfällt."
Beat Weber, Österreichische Zeitschrift für Politikwissenschaft

"Für Referenzzwecke hilfreiche Verzeichnisse von Tabellen und Abbildungen sowie zur Vielfaltgängiger Abkürzungen, weiters eine sorgfältige Zusammenstellung verwendeter Literatur und sonstiger Quellen bzw. Dokumente ergänzen die Studie, welche sich verdienstvoll und mutig zugleich an ein zweifellos noch in dynamischem Wandel befindliches Untersuchungsfeld heranwagt und damit einen objektivierenden Beitrag zu einem nicht zuletzt auch gesellschaftspolitischen relevanten, um nicht zu sagen brisanten Thema, leistet."
