Description
‘The Eponymous Dictionary of Economics can rightly take its place amongst the best works of its kind. Its experienced editors have undertaken the mammoth task of reviewing the vast array of economic propositions associated with particular writers with evident enthusiasm and consummate skill. Not the least of the Dictionary’s features is that it draws attention to the professional dedication of the economics profession in modern Spain; and it was a happy inspiration to offer the task of preparing entries mainly to the young and enthusiastic.’
– Sir Alan Peacock, The David Hume Institute and Fellow of the British Academy

An Eponymous Dictionary of Economics is a fascinating and accessible reference work with comprehensive coverage of the field of economics from Adam Smith’s Problem through Minkowski’s Theorem to Zellner’s Estimator.

Eponymy – the practice of affixing the name of the scientist to all or part of what he/she has found – has many interesting features but only a very few attempts have been made to tackle the subject lexicographically in science and art. This is the first eponymous dictionary of economics ever published in any language.

An Eponymous Dictionary of Economics is a fascinating and accessible reference work with comprehensive coverage of the field of economics from Adam Smith’s Problem through Minkowski’s Theorem to Zellner’s Estimator.

Eponymy – the practice of affixing the name of the scientist to all or part of what he/she has found – has many interesting features but only a very few attempts have been made to tackle the subject lexicographically in science and art. This is the first eponymous dictionary of economics ever published in any language.

There are hundreds of eponyms and the average economist will probably be acquainted with, let alone be able to master, a relatively restricted number of them. The Dictionary fills this void in a manageable volume that describes all relevant economic eponyms. Some rare but interesting eponyms are also included, many entries are cross-referenced and all have a succinct bibliography for further reading.

Julio Segura and Carlos Rodríguez Braun have assembled a unique Dictionary that will be an invaluable and much welcomed reference book for economic journalists, economists and economic scholars at all levels of academe, and in all areas of economics and its associated fields.
