About

Overview

In many ways, modern economics can be seen as the sum total of the works of leading thinkers in the field. Including Adam Smith with his groundbreaking study of capitalism and Paul Krugman’s study of international trade patterns, economists have continued to increase our understanding of the principles of the world’s economic systems. Engaging profiles of the most notable contributors to economic thought are provided and the impact they continue to have throughout the world today is examined.
