Who’s Who in Economics, Fourth Edition

Edited by the late Mark Blaug, former Professor Emeritus, University of London and Professor Emeritus, University of Buckingham, UK and Howard R. Vane, Emeritus Professor of Economics, Liverpool Business School, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
This major reference work, now in its fourth edition, is an extensive and authoritative guide to the most frequently cited academic economists throughout the world.

As with the previous editions, each of the entries is written by the entrants themselves and gives pertinent biographical data, principal fields of interest, chief publications and a statement of their principal contributions to economics as they – and not the editors – perceive them. This edition includes only living economists whose articles, published in the period 1990–2000, have been most frequently cited and as such it is the most up-to-date biographical dictionary of the leading players in the economics profession.

– Bruno S. Frey and Reiner Eichenberger, Kyklos

‘. . . as one reviewer said of the second edition, what was an interesting experiment became a standard work of reference. With this third edition it is now a vital resource for the profession. . .’
– Roger Middleton, Journal of the History of Economic Thought

‘Thumbing through the entries in Who’s Who in Economics does give a unique insight into the concerns and findings of the world’s leading economists. . .’
