An intimate view of the dominant economists of this century, scholars whose work changed the direction of the discipline, is presented in this volume. The contributors, who come from quite divergent points of the ideological compass, present their life philosophies and reflect on their conceptions of human nature, society, justice and the source of the creative impulse.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a treasure trove of twenty-two immensely enjoyable autobiographical essays ... virtually all write in a lively, lucid and reflective style free of technical jargoneering ... almost every essay is wise, absorbing and entertaining.' Journal of Economic Issues
'This book provides a rare opportunity to sit down with an Arrow, a Samuelson, or a Tinbergen and learn that there is more to economics (and economists) than the world of theorems and econometric models. Michael Szenberg is to be congratulated for making us privy to the life philosophies of twenty-two of the world's most eminent economists. This is recommended reading for economists of all ages; it should be required for those at early stages of their careers.' Victor R. Fuchs, Stanford University
'Eminent Economists: Their Life Philosophies should fascinate anyone interested in economics, autobiography, or the creative process.' Harry M. markowitz, baruch College, City University of New York
