210 Great Economists

I just came across a new book, Economic Thinkers: A Biographical Encyclopedia, edited by David Dieterle. I was suspicious when I saw Bernanke and Greenspan on the book cover, but the book covers a wide range of economists in terms of time and philosophical outlook. Each of the entries is meant to provide an introduction to the “economic thinkers” for the general reader. I counted about 30 Austrians in the book and only three living economists associated in some way with the Austrian school; Robert Ekelund, Hans Hoppe, George Reisman.
