From Interwar Pluralism to Postwar Neoclassicism seeks to change assumptions about American economics during the transformative period between the world wars.
The twelve essays by respected economists and historians collected here take a precise look at the mechanisms that brought about the shift from pluralism to neoclassicism in American economics. They discuss such topics as the demise of the Social Gospel Movement, the role of general education and graduate study in Chicago economics, the Sherman Antitrust Act, the transformation of economics through a survey of journal articles, and changes in American monetary thought.
