Spanning hundreds of ideas and over two centuries in time, this accessible volume explores how key figures in economics have addressed intriguing questions.
The questions relate to five themes: the "spirit of capitalism" (general economic philosophies); growth and development; money and finance; government, markets, and the economy; and behavioral economics. Brief, cogent overviews (including one-sentence "in a nutshell" summaries) cover the works of such iconic figures as Smith, Marx, Weber, Hayek, Keynes, Galbraith, Schumpeter, Friedman, Stiglitz, Krugman, and Piketty. An appendix offers a list of 50 additional "classics."
