Warren J. Samuels
Transaction Publishers - Business & Economics - 525 pages
The Chicago School of Economics is arguably the most successful and influential since World War II. This volume provides an interpretation of the Chicago school through constructive critique of its doctrines. It is an inquiry into the nature, role, and significance of the school and its doctrines within both the economics profession and the larger world of ideas and action. This volume offers a deeper understanding of the school, of its strengths and weaknesses, and of the tasks of any body of thought that hopes to comprise an alternative.
