"Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology" is an annual research series which presents three annual volumes in two fields: the history of economic thought and the methodology of economics. Volume 28 features: commissioned essays on important, but often neglected, Irish and English economists of the 18th and 19th centuries. Notes taken by a student, Maurice Beck Hexter, in Economics 11-12, 'Economic Theory', given by Frank William Taussig at Harvard during the academic year 1921-1922. The notes are accompanied by additional essays on how the notes relate to broader economic thinking of this period. And various papers covering a plethora of research covering the role of western economic advisors in China before the Communist Revolution (Paul Trescott), John Ryan on minimum wage legislation, a symposium on Clement Juglar, and a comparison of recent work in the history of economics and the history of science. Plus David Hume's political economy; conceptions of economic morality in American thought, Friedrich Engels, Hayek and conservatism; methodological consideration of economics and econometrics; and, Paul Heyne's essays on economics and ethics.Taken together, the volume offers a substantial contribution to the preservation of economics and economic history.
