A new blog has been launched hosting archive materials about the history of economics in America. Run by Irwin Collier of Freie Universität Berlin, it hosts materials from his project investigating the teaching of economics in the United States from the 1880s to the 1950s.
It covers the ‘big guns’ of US economics at Harvard, Yale, Chicago, John Hopkins, Duke, Columbia, Cornell and MIT.
- A young Thorstein Veblen’s critique of J.S. Mill
- Joseph Schumpeter’s graduate course in Theory
- Hyman Minsky’s notes on the business cycle.
Prof. Collier is being sponsored by the Institute for New Economic Thinking as part of its efforts to take a fresh look at the discipline.
