About the Author

Todd G Buchholz is an internationally acclaimed economist who advises some of the world's leading investment funds. He taught economics at Harvard University, where he was awarded the Allyn Young Teaching Prize by the Dept of Economics, and he holds advanced degrees in economics and law from Cambridge and Harvard Universities. His writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and Forbes, among other publications.


Any book that wants to acquaint the general reader with the history of economic thought must be compared to Robert L. Heilbroner's classic The Worldly Philosophers (S. & S., 1980. 5th ed.). This new book compares most favorably. It is easily accessible to a general audience. Buchholz, a former Harvard economics professor now teaching at the California Western School of Law, is especially strong in discussing the development of economic thought after World War II. Highly recommended for all libraries as an effective and entertaining introduction to economists and their ideas.-- Richard C. Schiming, Mankato State Univ., Minn .

If you read only one economics book this year, read this one."--Larry Summers, Secretary of the Treasury for President Clinton, Director of the National Economic Council for President Obama "Outstanding... fun to read."--The Wall Street Journal "This wide-ranging survey of economic thought combines a witty and clear exposition with a high degree of accuracy."--Milton Friedman "Precious few books... on any academic subject succeed at being witty and amusing. This is one of them. Bravo!"--William F. Buckley, Jr.
