“The Clash of Economic Ideas”- Lawrence H. White’s New Book

One of the suggestions George Mason University professor Peter Boetke asks his students to consider while reading economic history is to ask a question about the author.  What author’s ideas are being challenged by the writer’s work?  By following this suggestion, the reader can follow the evolution of ideas.  The works become extended dialogues between knowledgeable people.

That is why I am excited to read Lawrence H. White‘s new book, “The Clash of Economic Ideas:  The Great Policy Debates and Experiments of the Last Hundred Years”.  White visits many of the economic ideas, movements, criticisms, and policies that bring us to our challenges today.  His specialty is money and banking.

I look forward to reading this book.

Let’s watch an interview about his book.
