Series: Critical Assessments of Contemporary Economists, 2nd Series
Sir John Hicks is one of the most important and influential economists of the twentieth century. Awarded the Nobel Prize for economics in 1972, he has made contributions across a wide range of economic theory, writing some twenty books. Arguably the most important of these, Value and Capital, is seen as the roots of modern microeconomics and general equilibrium theory.
Hicks possessed an unusual ability to synthesize the ideas of other economists – something that is evident in his invention of the ‘IS-LM’ diagram to expound Keynes’ General Theory, and is perhaps what he is best known to present day economists for.
This two volume set is the second collection on Hicks in this series and includes new assessments of his contributions, covering the last fifteen years. With a new introduction by the editor, this comprehensive and scholarly collection provides students and scholars immediate access to Sir John Hicks’ contributions.
