Is There Progress in Economics?: Knowledge, Truth and the History of Economic Thought
E. Elgar, Jan 1, 2002 - Business & Economics - 410 pages
'Is There Progress in Economics? should be given relatively high marks. First, the quality of the papers is quite high, and second, the editors did a relatively good job of selecting, arranging and editing the contributions so that the volume really does focus on the question in its title. the editors' introduction also contributes to the overall effect by attempting to tie all of the papers together into a reasonably tight bundle.' - D. Wade Hands, Economic Record This thought-provoking book discusses the concept of progress in economics and investigates whether any advance has been made in its different spheres of research. the authors look back at the history, successes and failures of their respective fields and thoroughly examine the notion of progress from an epistemological and methodological perspective.
