Top Customer Reviews

Forgive me, I didn't really purchased this 1000 pg tome (who would pay several hundred dollars except for university and governmental libraries?), nor have I read its entire contents. However, I think I have seen enough to make this brief comment, and excuse me for anything said from ignorance. The ten point format for each economist listed may be succinct, but it is boring. Basic bio data is stated followed by academic credentials, publications, honors, and areas of service. The tome is adequate if someone were reviewing a peer's paper for the first time, screening candidates for new position, or if the goal was a short-cut background prior to a face to face meeting (eg. a useful networking tool). Several economic professors post their own 10-pt listing on their personal websites.

I googled for this book's equivalent website but was sufficiently inept not to have found it. Perhaps it is buried in the members section of the American Economics Association or can now be found elsewhere online (and has been posted already for several years). There, on the web, either free for for a small fee, would it serve its purpose most elegantly, and in a eco-friendly manner.
