Editorial Reviews

Review

"Are you looking to learn about the very greatest economists of all time? Linda Yueh's book is the best place to start, a modern-day version of Robert Heilbroner's classic The Worldly Philosophers." --Tyler Cowen, the Holbert L. Harris Chair of economics, George Mason University, and author of The Complacent Class and The Great Stagnation

"An extremely engaging survey of the life times and ideas of the great thinkers of economic history, woven together with useful discussions of how their ideas still shape economic policy today. Yueh’s book is reminiscent of Heilbroner’s marvelous classic The Worldly Philosophers, but more focused on contemporary debates on inequality, trade and productivity. Although targeted at readers interested in economic issues, this book would also make an excellent supplementary reading for undergraduate courses in economics, politics and social studies." --Kenneth Rogoff, Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Economics, Harvard University, former chief economist at the IMF, and the author of The Curse of Cash

“What would the great economists of the past make of today’s problems? Linda Yueh takes on this ambitious task in this engaging book, introducing us to the work of each economist and conjecturing how they might have advised us. This book is a very readable introduction to the lives and thinking of the greats, and reminds us that policymakers continue to be, as Keynes wrote, 'slaves of some defunct economist'.” --
Raghuram Rajan, Professor of Economics at The University of Chicago and author of Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy

"To anyone with even a passing interest in the economic problems, large and small, affecting us today, What Would the Great Economists Do? comes at the right time: a highly accessible and acute guide to thinking and learning from the men and woman whose work can inform and ultimately aid us in understanding the great national and global crises we're living through." --Nouriel Roubini, author of the New York Times bestselling Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance

"A timely and original guide to some of the key economic challenges facing society."
--Robert A. Cord, editor of The Palgrave Companion to Cambridge Economics

"Is economics a science in which each new generation’s discoveries build on those of the old? Or a humanistic study in which old ideas remain valid and relevant today? Linda Yueh’s account of the thinking of the great economists demonstrates that both perspectives are true." --John Kay, Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and the author of Other People's Money: The Real Business of Finance

"A great way to learn in an easily readable manner about some of the greatest economic influences of the past, but also a good way to test your own a priori assumptions about some of the big challenges of our time." --Jim O'Neill, former UK Treasury minister and chief economist at Goldman Sachs who coined the acronym "BRIC" to describe the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China

"Highly accessible...Linda gives us great insights into the issues of the current Chinese economy but at the same time links them to the ideas of Marx. With Keynes she explains how his ideas were very relevant to the 1930's but, at the same time, explains why governments confronted with massive debt today do not always follow Keynes' philosophy. I am sure Linda Yueh's original approach will deepen students' understanding of the Great Economists."
--Lord Norman Lamont, British politician and former Conservative MP for Kingston-upon-Thames

“Economics students are not taught the history of economic thought. They, like others, can learn a lot from this book: some of the great economists of the past had insights that could have saved the subject from its recent embarrassments.” ―Paul Collier, Professor of Economics and Public Policy at Oxford University

“This well-written book provides more than an engaging discussion of how the "Great Economists" changed the course of economic thinking and history. It links their insights to current economic challenges, assessing how their unique contributions can improve future wellbeing. It concludes by artfully bringing together the economists' individual insights to shed light on the backlash against globalization. Read it not only to learn about the world's great economists, but also to see how consequential thought innovations can be, and have been.”
―Mohamed A. El-Erian, Chief Economic Adviser at Allianz, former CEO of PIMCO

“I certainly wish that it had been around when I started to study the subject.” --Moneyweek

"Readable, informative, and thought-provoking." --Booklist (starred)

“A highly accessible and lively evaluation of the global financial crisis through the work of 12 top economists, from Adam Smith to John Maynard Keynes. Yueh…has a way of simplifying the arcane and ferreting out good news―of which we need a lot.” --Newsweek, "Best 50 Books of 2018 (so far)"
