April Staff Picks: A History of Economic Thought

Reading Room, Second Floor

"The idea for my staff pick is to let patrons trace the evolution of economic ideas since the publication of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. The exhibit contains both major publications that transformed the field of economics as well as helpful companions, such as The Worldly Philosophers, that introduce the reader to economics in general and follow the lives, times, and ideas of the economists whose works are on display. Finally, the more contemporary works are drawn from radically different schools of economic thought, from more mainstream neoclassical/New Keynesian economics to the various heterodoxies such as the Post Keynesian, Marxian, and Austrian schools. My hope is that patrons will be able to get some sense of the foundations and evolution of these various schools of thought by going through the staff picks."
