Lucky Boy in the Lucky Country : The Autobiography of Max Corden, Economist, Hardback Book

Lucky Boy in the Lucky Country : The Autobiography of Max Corden, Economist Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in the History of Economic Thought series

Description

Corden has written a charming and insightful account of his professional and personal life, from his childhood in Breslau, Germany, until his retirement in Melbourne. The book is divided into two parts. Part I considers Corden's early life, from a young boy growing up in Nazi Germany, to his immigration from England to Australia and what that means for the author's self-identity.

Part II addresses Corden's work on the Australian Protection Policy for which he is perhaps best known, before reflecting upon the author's time at Oxford University and the Australian National University, and, finally, moving on to review contributions made at the IMF, Johns Hopkins University, and The World Bank. This book will be of interest to all aspiring economists, as well as established economists familiar with Corden's work.

It is an inspiring and profound record of the intellectual journey made by one of Australia's best known economists.
