This new biographical dictionary is an authoritative and substantive reference source covering federal economic policy since World War II through biographical information on the various economic advisers appointed in this period. Reference Books Bulletin

The more than 40 biographical essays in this volume are written by practicing scholars of economics, and are presented in alphabetical order. They provide comprehensive pictures of the council members, analyzing their ideas and their influence on both economic theory and governmental policy. An appendix details council membership during each presidential administration, allowing a clear understanding of the degree to which the advice and actions of particular individuals were effective. Council membership has traditionally been considered a prestigious assignment: consequently, the biographies collected in this directory represent a substantial group of the country's most important economists.
