9780865976665: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics

In this easily accessible, user-friendly volume, respected economist David R. Henderson brings together 152 of the most brilliant minds in economics to show how the analysis of economic topics can illuminate many aspects of the average person’s daily life. Some of the noted contributors include Nobel Prize winners Gary Becker and George Stigler, and former presidential economic advisors, financial columnists, and economists such as Armen Alchian, Don Boudreaux, Deepak Lal, Anna Schwartz, Lawrence Summers, and Murray Rothbard. The entries cover numerous topics including basic concepts, discrimination and labor issues, corporations and financial markets, issues in economic history, economics of legal issues, regulation, environmental regulation, taxes, economic policy, macroeconomics, money and banking, international economics, economics outside the United States, economic systems, schools of economic thought, and more.

Containing more than 160 entries, The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics provides the reader with a wealth of economic analysis about important issues in a comprehensive, yet readable and engaging format. Originally published in 1993 as The Fortune Encyclopedia of Economics and now thoroughly revised and updated, the Liberty Fund edition contains numerous new entries, updates of previously published articles, and a new introduction and index.

David R. Henderson is a Research Fellow with Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and an Associate Professor of Economics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. He was formerly a Senior Economist with the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.

From Booklist:

This is essentially the third edition of The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics, which originally came out in 1993 as The Fortune Encyclopedia of Economics and was updated in 2002 with the new name. The 2002 version of The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics is available for free online from the Library of Economics and Liberty http://www.econlib.org/library/CEE.html for those who do not have the means of purchasing the newest edition. The entries are arranged in two sections: the first for article entries, and the second for biographical entries. These sections are ordered alphabetically and include 160 articles and almost 100 biographies of prominent economists. Entries vary in length from a couple of paragraphs to a couple of pages. Each article entry includes information on the author who wrote the article and a short bibliography for further reading. The biographical entries include a list of selected works of the economist being discussed. A short appendix lists winners of the Nobel Prize in economics, chairs of the Council of Economic Advisors, and presidents of the American Economic Association. Compared to the 2002 edition, this one has approximately 34 new entries, and more than half of the entries have been thoroughly updated and revised. This edition also includes a new introduction and index. The encyclopedia contains a wealth of information that makes complex economics understandable in straightforward articles written by a variety of knowledgeable authors, ranging from Nobel Prize winner Gary Becker to financial columnists and numerous professors from around the country. A library that does not have this book in its collection could, of course, use the 2002 version online for free; but at such a reasonable price, this volume should be mandatory for any library supporting economics classes and is recommended for all academic and large public libraries. --Christy Donaldson
