AbstractIn this scholarly and timely presentation of the history of economic thought, there are new ideas, evidence, problems, and values that can be used to reconsider basic disputes and major contributions of the past. The eighth edition of The Evolution of Economic Thought covers the history of economics, the philosophies that drive the economic way of thinking, the ideas of the great economic thinkers, and their logical connections to the world. It stresses the importance of understanding contemporary economics by grasping new ideas, evidence, problems, and values that call for reconsideration of basic disputes and major contributions of the past. Updated pedagogical features provide clear insight into issues like antitrust perspectives and game theory. Introducing ideas like Robert Solow's pioneering model to discuss recent renewed emphasis on growth theory and technological change, the authors shed historical light on modern debates and thoughts.
