Favorites of Fortune by Patrice Higonnet

Book Description

In "Favourites of Fortune" a galaxy of distinguished international economists and historians pit economic history against the shaky assumptions of the classical economic theory of natural growth. Their explanations consider the factors of technology, enterpreneurialism, and paths to economic growth, but each reflects an ideological wave of explanation that has marked the last two hundred years.

Goodness Beyond Virtue by Patrice Higonnet Goodness Beyond Virtue, Paperback (October 1998)
