Economic Biographies Notable contributors to economic history
Along the way of my journey with economics, I have ‘met’ a number of people, about whom I was asked to write or felt I ought to introduce myself to, as it were. That is the simple logic behind the choice of people included in this book. With the exception of Machiavelli, they are all in their different ways something akin to heroes in the evolution of economics. Meaning that their contributions should be studied by any one who wishes to develop an ecumenical rather than myopic understanding of modern economic life, for without such breadth of research we will not escape the divisive nature of economics to which, unfortunately, we have become habituated.
