Love the title . . .

by BobI on Oct 22, 2010

This book is a great history of economics, written with a sense of humor and awe. It gives a great sense of the thinkers who gave birth to the theories of our economic system and often has laugh out loud examples of their thoughts.

Excellent summary of economic thought

by Matthew on May 2, 2008

This book is a very readable summary of the history of economic thought. The title is perhaps slightly misleading, as the book isn't really "new" ideas, but a discussion of the ideas these economists put forth. Bucholz empasizes economists who founded different schools of thought, rather than trying to get every economist who did anything great. Bucholz has a distinct bias toward capitalism as opposed to Marxism, and a very slight bias toward monetarism as opposed to Keynesianism. As an Economics major, I heartily recommend this book.
