Description

In 1954, I set myself to collect together a number of Economic essays that I had written before that year, which seemed worthy of publication in a single volume. They were concerned with different aspects of economics. After the volume appeared, I wondered whether I had made a mistake. Would someone interested primarily in, say, imperfect competition be prepared to spend the extra money and occupy the extra bookshelf space just to possess the additional material about population, economic dynamics and Professor von Hayek’s fascinating views on individualism? I pleaded on behalf of the book that it all bore on topics in which the general economist has to interest himself. Since that time specialisation has greatly increased; the interests of each separate economist tend to be more sharply focused on his own theme. I was accordingly delighted and gratified when Macmillan, whose judgement I trust, proposed a new edition of this volume
