Description

The seventh edition of The Evolution of Economic Thought presents the history of economics and the philosophies that drive the economic way of thinking. It stresses the importance of understanding contemporary economics by grasping new ideas, evidence, problems and values that call for reconsideration of basic disputes and major contributions of the past. The textbook explains the ideas of the great economic thinkers and their logical connections to the world of today and tomorrow. Updated pedagogical features provide clear insight into issues like antitrust perspectives and game theory. Introducing ideas like Robert Solow's pioneering model to discuss recent renewed emphasis on growth theory and technological change, the author sheds historical light on modern debates and thoughts. Stanley Brue and Randy Grant carry on the legacy of Jacob Oser, the book's creator, by offering a scholarly and timely presentation of the history of economic thought.
