Knut Wicksell: Selected Essays in Economics - Vol. 2

Excerpt

This is the second of Routledge’s two volumes of essays by the Swedish economist Knut Wicksell, originally published in Swedish or German. The first volume was published in 1997 and contains writings on marginalism and capital theory, on income, taxes and duties, and on unemployment.

The first part of the present volume contains eight essays on money and prices, which was one of Wicksell’s main areas of research. It is followed by four pieces on the question of population, the first of which builds on a public lecture which made Wicksell known as a subversive, an epithet that his subsequent participation in public debate, continuing into old age, did nothing to render invalid. The contents of the last part are a number of book reviews, from which we learn how Wicksell looked upon the works of some of his great contemporaries.

The essays in this volume have been translated by Dr Timothy Chamber-lain. The Swedish Council for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences has financed the translation. Both deserve special thanks.
