The Collected Scientific Papers of Paul A. Samuelson, Volume 5
Volume 5 collects 108 articles written since 1976, bringing the total to nearly 400 important contributions to economics.
"It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," observes a reviewer in the Economist who goes on to note that "a cynic might add that it would have been better for Professor Samuelson to write less merely to give others a chance to write at all."In fact, Samuelson's output, his "extraordinary mastery of methods, both mathematical and linguistic" (review of Volume 4 of The Collected Scientific Papers), have not diminished. Volume 5 collects 108 articles written since 1976, bringing the total to nearly 400 important contributions to economics. As in earlier volumes, the papers are arranged by subject. They cover Economic Theory: Marx, Keynes, and Schumpeter; International Economics; Stochastic Theory; Classical Economics; Mathematical Biology; Biographical and Autobiographical Writings; and Current Economics and Policy.Volumes 1 through 4 encompass more than 280 articles. The first two contain virtually all of Samuelson's contributions to economic theory through mid-1964; Volume 3 contains all the scientific papers written from mid-1964 through 1970, and the last volume brings his work up to through 1976.
