Review: The Age of the Economist

User Review  - Scott - Goodreads

Good basic overview of history of economic thought. Would recommend to anyone without a background in economics. For a more scholarly and detailed discussion turn to A History of Economic Theory and Method by Robert B. Ekelund Jr. and Robert F. Hebert. Read full review
