Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology
Volume 38C of Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology features a symposium guest-edited by Rebeca Gomez Betancourt on the economic thought of Sir James Steuart, author of perhaps the first English-language treatise on political economy. The symposium includes contributions from Maurício Coutinho and Carlos Eduardo Suprinyak, Yutaka Furuya, Pierre de Saint-Phalle, José Menudo, and Ghislain Deleplace. In addition to the Steuart symposium, Andrew Farrant, Massimo Di Matteo, and Carlo Zappia contribute new general-research essays on, respectively, Milton Friedman’s 1975 visit to Chile, Keynes and Pigou on employment and equilibrium, and a brief correspondence between Karl Popper and Leonard Savage.
