Handbook on the History of Economic Analysis Volume II

Schools of Thought in Economics

Edited by Gilbert Faccarello, Professor of Economics, Panthéon-Assas University, Paris, France and Heinz D. Kurz, Emeritus Professor of Economics, University of Graz and Graz Schumpeter Centre, Austria

Volume II contains entries on the major schools of economic thought and analysis. These schools differ with regard to their 'vision' of the working of the economic system, the major forces and interactions that shape its path, and the policy recommendations proposed. At any moment of time, several such schools typically compete with one another, striving for dominance within the economic and political discourse.

Each Handbook can be read individually and acts as a self-contained volume in its own right. It can be purchased separately or as part of a three-volume set.

‘This unique trio of Handbooks of economic analysis offers a comprehensive coverage of the history of the subject. It is a fascinating collection of essays on a wide range of topics in the field.
Edited by two of the most distinguished academics in the field, Dr Gilbert Faccarello, [Professor of Economics, Panthéon-Assas University, Paris, France] and Dr Heinz D. Kurz, [Emeritus Professor
of Economics, University of Graz and Graz Schumpeter Centre, Graz, Austria], the volumes offer many original contributions from scholars across the globe. There are many distinguished contributions on a wide gamut of economics included here of interest to students and teachers of both this subject and management.’
– Malcolm Warner, Asia Pacific Business Review

‘(The authors) are to be lauded for what is by any standard a major accomplishment, and an important contribution to the existing scholarly literature in the history of economics.’
– Harro Maas and Cléo Chassonnery-Zaigouche, The European Journal of the History of Economic Thought

‘(This book) provides a comprehensive and complex history of the evolution of economic science, something that no other book does. That is why the Handbook of the History of Economic Analysis will soon become an indisputable guide for universities, in particular, and for the academic world, in general.’
– The Journal of Philosophical Economics
