Isle Publishing Company, 2009 - Business & Economics - 661 pages
"The array of contributions offered in this volume on the growth of economics, is comprehensive. There are sufficient number of ideas and perspectives about economic theories to whet the appetite of the most scholars or readers. Others, more inclined to welcome efforts to explain economic phenomena, will find a diversity of interpretations of events which should be sufficient to stimulate the imagination as well as the understanding of policy choices." "The book offers insights about developments in economic theory and modes of analysis during the twentieth century and earlier." --Book Jacket.
