Knut Wicksell: Selected Essays Volumes 1 & 2
Edited by Bo Sandelin
Routledge – 1999 – 514 pages
Knut Wicksell was one of the most influential economists of the twentieth century, making major contributions to price theory, monetary theory and capital theory. A prolific and diverse thinker, his ideas were to inspire the Stockholm School, the Austrian School and mainstream neo-classical economics.
Although most of his major books have now been translated into English, relatively few of his essays have. These two volumes, first published in 1997 and 1999, made many of Wicksell's most important contributions accessible to the English speaking reader for the first time and this reissue will be welcomed by economists at all levels.
These volumes contain translations of articles originally written in Swedish and German which focus on:
*marginalism and capital theory
*money and price theory
* Wicksell's book reviews, including reviews of Leon Walras, Ludwig von Mises and John Bates Clark.
