Description - The Economic Mind in America by Malcolm Rutherford

In the history of economic thought, American economics is an area which has received insufficient attention. This volume demonstrates the variety and creativity of American economics and the links between American economic thought and its particular non-European context. The book consists of selected papers from the 1996 History of Economics Society conference. The opening section examines the concept of 'American' economic thought from a variety of perspectives. The following sections provide a critical reassessment of pioneering American policy analysts such as Irving Fisher, Wesley Mitchell, Harold Moulton and Leo Paslovsky, as well as the theoretical contributions of Herbert Davenport and Frank Knight. The fourth section contains a detailed account of Thorstein Veblen's institutional economics and an exploration of the influence of Canadian and European economic thought. The unusual and original contributions of C. S. Peirce, Alvin Johnson and science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein are also analysed. The final section details American economists' interests in international issues from 1886-1995. A. W. Coats, Nottingham University, William J.
