This book looks into the creative minds of some recent, mostly “defunct” economists. Many of the authors, such as Samuelson, Friedman, Galbraith, and Heilbroner, have penned popular works, while their scientific contributions were limited to the most specialized scholars. Others, such as Nobel Prize winners Modigliani, Debreu, Becker, Aumann, and Allais, delved into complex issues in human organization, economic growth and planning, socio-economic theory, and model building. Economists such as Keynes and Lowe represent world-class paragons whose influences continue to percolate in current research programs. Here we unearth their best scientific work, revealing gems that might otherwise be overlooked.

About the Author:

Michael Szenberg is Distinguished Professor and Chair of Business and Economics at Touro College. A recipient of many national and international teaching, service, and research awards, he was editor-in-chief of The American Economist from 1973 to 2011. Lall Ramrattan is an economist at UC Berkeley, Extension. He holds a PhD from the New School for Social Research. Lall and Michael have collaborated for over 15 years, publishing more than 20 books and dozens of articles and research projects.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Intellectual Journeys of Recent, Mostly “Defunct” Economists is the work of Szenberg and Ramrattan, not a collection of papers written by other econo¬mists. It brings together in one volume their thoughts, most of which have been previously published in diverse outlets. They discuss the work of fifteen economists, ranging alphabetically from Allais to Samuelson and historically from Keynes to Stanley Fischer. It is not a book to be consumed in one gulp or even a few sittings. Neither is it a reference work that takes the place of a dictionary or an encylopedia. Rather the reader should approach it as a rich, varied intellectual buffet about leading economists to be sampled as interest and need dictate. Readers who believe they already know as much about Samuelson as they desire are unlikely to feel the same way about Adolph Lowe or Robert Heilbroner, two luminaries of the New School. In this book, as in all his many volumes over more than two decades, Szenberg has provided a service for future economists. Just as journalism is said to be the first draft of history, so Szenberg and his collaborators can be said to have provided valuable material for future historians of economic thought."


Victor R. Fuchs, from the forward
