Three Uses for “The Making of Modern Economics”

Three uses for my award-winning book, The Making of Modern Economics:

Since winning the Choice Book Award for Outstanding Academic Title, my book has been translated into Spanish, given away to all the board members of a major Russian corporation, and read as a main selection of the Boulder Book Club and the Show-Me Institute (Missouri think tank).

Why all the buzz?

The book is about the great economic thinkers, fully illustrated with lots of pictures, stories, and a cunning plot with Adam Smith as the heroic figure.  Smith and his free-market theories are attacked by the Marxists and Keynesians, but he triumphs in the end.

As Roger Garrison, Auburn professor, states, “My students love The Making of Modern Economics!  Mark Skousen makes the history of economics come alive like no other textbook.”
