Macroeconomics in Retrospect
The Selected Essays of David Laidler
David Laidler is one of the leading scholars in the history of economic thought and macroeconomics. This important collection brings together nineteen of his essays on topics in the history of macroeconomics. It begins with a paper on Adam Smith and ends with a discussion of the implications of Newclassical economists' ideas on the role of economic ideas in conditioning agents' activities. Other chapters deal with the major themes developed by monetary economists in the intervening years. Two of the essays appear in their current form for the first time, and several others are reprinted from difficult-to-obtain sources. They should be of interest not just to historians of economic thought, but also to economists more generally.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'There is never a dull moment in David Laidler's essays. He writes relatively thick history, emphasising complexities and paradoxes, but with a very sharp pen and very strong opinions... this is a valuable collection.' -- J.E. King, History of Economics Review 'The subjects of all these papers continue to reward study and argument, and I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in current monetary problems, which cannot be sharply distinguished from those of earlier times and about which we are still arguing.' -- John H. Wood, EH.Net
