Book Description Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1949., 1949. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. FIRST EDITION. Original cloth. Very Good+, in very good dust jacket. Harvard Economic Studies No. 87. 'Major works of James S. Duesenberry' (History of Economic Thought Web site). 'The arguments of those who continued to believe that the social significance of consumption was being systematically understated were still intuitively convincing. However, their case was usually rejected on the grounds that they had not been able to present an alternative theory of consumer behavior expressed in purely economic terms--a theory that could, where necessary, be supported by persuasive empirical evidence that social factors could and did play a considerable part in determining patterns of consumer demand. This long-standing criticism was effectively removed, however, with the publication in 1949 of James Duesenberry's Income, Saving and the Theory of Consumer Behavior. . . . a book not widely reviewed at the time of its appearance in 1949 but that, significantly, attracted the attention of some eminent economists of the day. Kenneth Arrow believed that it offered 'one of the most significant contributions of the postwar period to our understanding of economic behavior' and that it was to be commended for attempting to link economic theory more directly with psychological motivations and with consumer learning processes [Arrow 1950]. Ralph Turvey  was more guarded but nevertheless conceded that Duesenberry had made a provocative and significant contribution to demand theory. G. L. S. Shackle welcomed the attack on 'conventional postulates of Olympian knowledge and aloofness' and saw Duesenberry's work as at the least attempting to broaden the theoretical economist's horizon [Shackle 1951]. A. C. Pigou , while expressing serious methodological reservations, nevertheless recognized the potential significance of the work' (Roger Mason, 'The Social Significance of Consumption: James Duesenberry's Contribution to Consumer Theory', Journal of Economic Issues, Sept. 2000).
