Summary

This witty, entertaining, accessible Introduction to the great economic thinkers throughout history-Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, and more-shows how their ideas apply to our modern world. In this revised edition, renowned economist Todd Buchholz offers an insightful and informed perspective on key economic issues in the new millennium: increasing demand for energy, the rise of China, international trade, aging populations, health care, and the effects of global warming. New Ideas from Dead Economists is a fascinating guide to understanding both the evolution of economic theory and our complex contemporary economy. Book jacket.
