Italian Economists of the 20th Century provides a unique up-to-date assessment and appreciation of the work of 12 pioneering economists. The essays - written by a group of leading international scholars - are a fitting tribute to the important contribution that Italian economists have made to twentieth century economics.
This important book includes entries not only on familiar names such as Vilfredo Pareto, Piero Sraffa and Franco Modigliani, but also on less well known yet equally important economists. It demonstrates the rich intellectual tradition in Italy and its profound - yet often unrecognized - impact on economics in general.
