In this highly readable study of 200 years of Western economic history, the author assesses the strengths and weaknesses of major economic theories in light of modern political and economic dilemmas.
What would Adam Smith have to say about “Japan bashing” or import quotas? Why was Thomas Malthus considered the “party pooper” of his age? How do the theories of Karl Marx relate to present-day labor relations—and have momentous changes in the Soviet Union proven those theories incorrect? Strikingly original analyses of David Ricardo, John Stuart Mill, and John Maynard Keynes are also included.
