- Fundamentals of Economic Analysis: A Causal-Realist Approach
Unprecedented in scope, the book was to provide a complete history of economic theory from Ancient Greece to the end of the second world war. A major contribution to the history of ideas as well as to economics, History of Economic Analysis rapidly gained a reputation as a unique and classic work.
As well being an economist, Schumpeter was a gifted mathematician, historian, philosopher and psychologist and this is reflected in the multi-disciplinary nature of his great endeavour. Topics addressed include the techniques of economic analysis, contemporaneous developments in other sciences and the sociology of economics. This inclusiveness extends to the periods and individuals who figure in the book.

Joseph Alois Schumpeter - Econlib
The first part of the course will present the theoretical tools used by economists to analyze the public intervention in economic activities. From general framework mainly defending laissez-faire on the markets, some particular models have been developed to recommend specific economic policies.
It then defines a standard framework for government action: macroeconomic stabilization, income redistribution, and correction of market failures. The rise of data analysis at the turn of the XXIst century allows economists to directly assess public policies several years after their introduction.
The increasing number of evaluations in different countries at different periods builds a collection of empirical knowledge. The second part of the course will depict the economists' increasing influence on public policies historically and sociologically.
Fundamentals of Economic Analysis: A Causal-Realist Approach
In the early decades of the 20th century, economists were seldom approached by governments. Keynesian macroeconomic management, the need for some sort of economic planning and escalating competition between East and West required a new kind of economic experts. Economists were hired as advisors, as statisticians, model builders and policy analysts. The demise of the Welfare State did not slow down the economists' involvement in policies.
