The Making of Modern Economics : The Lives and Ideas of the Great Thinkers, Hardback Book

The Making of Modern Economics : The Lives and Ideas of the Great Thinkers Hardback


This book presents a bold, engaging and updated history of economics--the dramatic story of how the great economic thinkers built today's rigorous social science.

Noted financial writer and economist Mark Skousen has revised this popular work, now in its third edition. This comprehensive, yet accessible introduction to the major economic philosophers of the past 225 years begins with Adam Smith and continues through the present day.

The text examines the contributions made by each individual to our understanding of the role of the economist, the science of economics, and economic theory.

Boxes in each chapter highlight little-known and entertaining facts about the economists' personal lives that had an influence on their work.
