The Foundations of Business Cycle Theory

Edited by D.P. O’Brien, Emeritus Professor of Economics, University of Durham, UK
The collection covers the foundations of business cycle theory from the mid-nineteenth century through to the work immediately affected by the publication of Keynes’s General Theory.

With the revival of interest in real business cycles, especially in the last ten years, these volumes provide a substantial selection of the intellectual achievements in this area built up by previous generations, any of such achievements were temporarily obscured by the success of Keynes’s work.
