A charting of the History of Economic Thought provides an essential insight into the thinking that has shaped the world we live in today and the great names of the past are as relevant now as they have ever been. From the free market thinking of Adam Smith to Keynes┐ theories of the mixed economy, thinkers of the stature of Alfred Marshall, David Ricardo, William Stanley Jevons and Thorstein Veblen have had an immeasurable influence down the ages. This new edition builds on the canonical nature of the first with the addition of a number of twentieth century articles including contributions from Milton Friedman and John Kenneth Galbraith. New introductions are included by the editors, two of the most highly regarded historians of thought. The History of Economic Thought: A Reader can be used as a core textbook or as a supplementary text on courses in economic philosophy and methodology, and is a superb introduction to the various schools of thought that have developed throughout the history of economics: the Queen of the Social Sciences.
