Description - A History of the Theory of Investments by Mark Rubinstein

"This exceptional book provides valuable insights into the
evolution of financial economics from the perspective of a major
player."

-- Robert Litzenberger, Hopkinson Professor Emeritus of Investment
Banking, Univ. of Pennsylvania; and retired partner, Goldman Sachs
A History of the Theory of Investments is about ideas --
where they come from, how they evolve, and why they are
instrumental in preparing the future for new ideas. Author Mark
Rubinstein writes history by rewriting history. In unearthing
long-forgotten books and journals, he corrects past oversights to
assign credit where credit is due and assembles a remarkable
history that is unquestionable in its accuracy and unprecedented in
its power.
Exploring key turning points in the development of investment
theory, through the critical prism of award-winning investment
theory and asset pricing expert Mark Rubinstein, this
groundbreaking resource follows the chronological development of
investment theory over centuries, exploring the inner workings of
great theoretical breakthroughs while pointing out contributions
made by often unsung contributors to some of investment's most
influential ideas and models.
