The Chicago School
How the University of Chicago Assembled the Thinkers Who Revolutionized Economics and BusinesseBook - 2009
When Richard Nixon said "We are all Keynesians now" in 1971, few could have predicted that the next three decades would result in a complete transformation of the global economic landscape. The transformation was led by a small, relatively obscure group within the University of Chicago's business school and its departments of economics and political science. These thinkers - including Milton Friedman, Gary Becker, George Stigler, Robert Lucas, and others - revolutionized economic orthodoxy in the second half of the 20th century, dominated the Nobel Prizes awarded in economics, and changed how business is done around the world. Written by a leading European economic thinker, The Chicago School is the first in-depth look at how this remarkable group came together. Exhaustively detailed, it provides a close recounting of the decade-by-decade progress of the Chicago School's evolution. As such, it's an essential contribution to the intellectual history of our time.
