BeschreibungIn this witty and modest intellectual autobiography, George J. Stigler gives us a fascinating glimpse into the little-known world of economics and the people who study it. One of the most distinguished economists of the twentieth century, Stigler was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1982 for his work on public regulation. He also helped found the Chicago School of economics, and many of his fellow Chicago luminaries appear in these pages, including Fredrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Ronald Coase, and Gary Becker. Stigler's appreciation for such colleagues and his sense of excitement about economic ideas past and present make his "Memoirs" both highly entertaining and highly educational.
PortraitGeorge J. Stigler (1911-1991) taught at the University of Chicago for more than thirty years, helping to pioneer the Chicago School of economic theory.

He was the author of, among other books, "The Theory of Price, The Intellectual and the Marketplace and Other Essays," and "The Citizen and the State: Essays on Regulation."
Pressestimmen"Beautifully written, it will appeal to anyone seeking a better understanding of what technical economics is all about. It is full of stories about powerful minds, courageous intellects and tightly focused issues."--, "--David Warsh "Boston Globe "
