    The Legacy of Piero Sraffa

    Edited by Heinz D. Kurz, Neri Salvadori
    It is generally acknowledged that Piero Sraffa was one of the most original and important economic theorists of the twentieth century. The significance of Sraffa’s contributions lies in the fact that he elaborated an alternative to the marginalist theory of value and distribution rooted in the analyses of the classical political economists from Adam Smith to David Ricardo.

  4. The Legacy of Herbert Simon in Economic Analysis

    The Legacy of Herbert Simon in Economic Analysis

    Edited by Peter E. Earl
    Herbert A. Simon has been a leading contributor to cognitive psychology, computer science, public administration, philosophy and statistics, and is the winner of the 1978 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics. As this authoritative collection demonstrates, his impact on economics has been felt in areas as diverse as the theory of the firm and economic organization, consumer behaviour, law and economics, and environmental economics. Central to his work is the notion of bounded rationality – the mismatch between human decision-making capacities and the scale of the decision problems that people face, which results in satisficing rather than optimising behaviour – and his belief that economic research should start from the study of actual behaviour rather than being based on convenient but unrealistic assumptions. Peter Earl’s choice of articles shows both the kind of economics that emerges when Simon’s philosophy is followed comprehensively, and what happens when neo-classical economists partially adopt his ideas.

    The Legacy of Joseph A. Schumpeter

    Edited by Horst Hanusch
    This authoritative collection presents an overview of the widespread significance of Schumpeter's thought. Part I examines the reception accorded to Schumpeter's ideas by his contemporaries.

While the contributions on industrial economics are presented in neoclassical fashion, the studies of innovation economics and evolutionary modelling reveal further ramifications of Schumpeter's legacy. Part IV highlights the importance of Schumpeterian ideas on modern macroeconomic theories and the final part demonstrates the influence of his thought in other fields such as public finance, sociology, politics and history.
