History of Economic Analysis

£19.99

Product description

At the time of his death in 1950, Joseph Schumpeter - one of the great economists and thinkers of the first half of the 20th century - was working on his "History of Economic Analysis". A complete history of man's theoretical efforts from the time of ancient Greece through the present to understand economic phenomena, the volume is an important contribution to the history of ideas as well as to economics. Schumpeter was a historian, social scientist, philosopher, psychologist, and mathematician as well as an economist, and the multidisciplinary contents of this book reveal the great scope of his project. Topics discussed include: the techniques of economic analysis, contemporaneous developments in other sciences, and the sociology of economics; economic writings from Plato and Aristotle up through the time of Adam Smith, including the medieval scholastics and natural-law philosophers; the work of Malthus, Mill, Ricardo, Marx, and the important European economists; and the history, sociology, psychology, and economics of the period from 1879 to 1914.
