The epic story of the making of modern economics, and of how economics rescued mankind from squalor and deprivation by placing its material fate in its own hands rather than in fate. Nasar's account begins with Charles Dickens and Henry Mayhew observing the condition of the poor majority in mid-nineteenth-century London, the richest place in the world. She describes the often heroic efforts of Marx and others to put those insights into action, with revolutionary consequences. From John Maynard Keynes to India's Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen, she shows how the insights of these activist thinkers transformed the world--from one city, London, to the developed nations in Europe and America, and now the entire planet. In Nasar's dramatic narrative we witness men and women responding to personal crises, world wars, revolutions, economic upheavals, and each other's ideas to turn back Malthus and transform the "dismal science" into a triumph over mankind's hitherto age-old destiny of misery.… (mehr)

Un libro perfecto para entender la evolución de la economía como ciencia y los grandes economistas que la han desarrollado ( )

Brilliant exposition of economic thought and thinkers. How personalities influenced policies; and how individuals changed their thinking, sometimes diametrically, over time. Very well written, as was A Beautiful Mind. Every Economics student should read this book at some time during their studies. I wish I had, and I wish I had studied History of Economic Thought! A fascinating, not a boring, subject. It starts with Marx and Marshall, when modern economics was in its infancy. It seemed a relatively insular world. Paths were crossed, friendships and enemies made. Often theories and ideas were developed under the most unpropitious circumstances, such as war, deprivation, ill-health, and bigotry. It is sometimes said that you don't need to read the biography of an author to appreciate a novel. The same could be said here; but it certainly makes understanding the background to theories easier, and the whole book totally engrossing. ( )

A decent spread of major characters in the development of modern economic thought, but the later chapters are rather weak and feel somewhat tacked on. Seems a shame that Friedman gets relatively sparse verbiage. Plus the occasional obvious error (even to the layman) sometimes detracted from this otherwise interesting overview. ( )

Teleurstellend. Weinig uitleg over economische theorieën, in feite hoofdzakelijk een boek samengesteld met een aantal biografiën. Bovendien spreken over Joegoslavië 20jaar voor die naam werd gebruikt wijst op zeer onzorgvuldig werken. ( )

A wonderful and gripping book. The author is not afraid to criticize Lord Keynes when he is wrong, and is justifiably upset by Joan Robinson's lunacy. Many facts in this book were unknown to me, and it is most important that the economic founders get their due. ( )

The epic story of the making of modern economics, and of how economics rescued mankind from squalor and deprivation by placing its material fate in its own hands rather than in fate. Nasar's account begins with Charles Dickens and Henry Mayhew observing the condition of the poor majority in mid-nineteenth-century London, the richest place in the world. She describes the often heroic efforts of Marx and others to put those insights into action, with revolutionary consequences. From John Maynard Keynes to India's Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen, she shows how the insights of these activist thinkers transformed the world--from one city, London, to the developed nations in Europe and America, and now the entire planet. In Nasar's dramatic narrative we witness men and women responding to personal crises, world wars, revolutions, economic upheavals, and each other's ideas to turn back Malthus and transform the "dismal science" into a triumph over mankind's hitherto age-old destiny of misery.
