Great Economic Thinkers presents an accessible introduction to the lives and works of the most influential economists of modern times, including Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Karl Marx, Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Amartya Sen, and Joseph Stiglitz. Free of confusing jargon and equations, the book describes and discusses key economic concepts—from the role played by the division of labor to wages and rents, liberalism, laissez-faire, and welfare economics—showing how they have come to shape how we see ourselves and our society today. The book features an introduction by historian D’Maris Coffman, and each chapter, all by noted economic historians, combines a biographical outline with critical analysis of its subject’s contribution to economic thought.
