The Makers of Modern Economics, Volume IV builds on the three previous volumes in presenting the intellectual development of some of the twentieth century's leading figures in modern economic theory. The first volume in this series was acclaimed by Professor David Audretsch as `a unique insight into the thoughts and lives of prominent economists'.
In this fourth volume, Richard H. Day, Geoffrey C. Harcourt, Duncan K. Foley, Ken Binmore and Hirofumi Uzawa offer intimate insights into their careers and their research to date as well as taking a broader view of economics as a discipline and considering future directions. They reflect on their development, the problems and issues that interested them and the individuals who guided and influenced them.
The Makers of Modern Economics, volume IV provides the academic, student and researcher with a fascinating insight into the life and work of some of today's most inspiring economists.
