Well within economics departments Moore ernie ball reflex
Upthread, paulr posed a question which deserves an answer musicman ernie ball but I don’t think it got one: “could you recommend a good book that gives the layman who has interest in Economics but can’t go back to study a good overview of the subject.” Since Karl Whelan hasn’t responded here’s my suggestion (well worth what it’s costing you).
On the suggestions here I went off and looked a bit a Minsky. I note with, slightly ernie ball van halen guilty, interest that on his wikipedia page it states: “Minsky stated his theories verbally, and did not build mathematical models based on them. Consequently, his theories have not been incorporated into mainstream economic models.”
Well within economics departments Moore McDowell to the best of my knowledge is from the Austrian school (please correct me if I’m wrong) and I had a lecturer with a similar view who was involved in the competition authority. I consider both fairly successful.
