Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The discussion of Say's Law is one of the best in the literature and on its own would make the book worthwhile.... This is a lively book by a real scholar ... a man who knows his subject and who writes with vigor and with interest."--D. P. O'Brien, Economica

"Clearly presented, lucidly written, and informative."--The Economist

"It is a well-written and well-organized book. Illuminating insights (and some provocative conclusions) are scattered throughout."--Roger M. Troub, Social Science Quarterly
