In this volume leading scholars look at the heritage and impact of the important work done by the Stockholm School from the 1920s to the present. The first part of The Stockholm School of Economics Revisited covers the early years, followed by an extensive review of the approaches to economics adopted by the school. A number of contributors investigate the relation and impact of the Stockholm School on their own work, the work of other economists, and the approaches pursued at other schools. A final roundtable discussion delves into the question of "What remains of the Stockholm School?." A readable collection for anyone interested in economic history, history of economic thought, or the many economic ideas lying behind the success of the Swedish economy.
