New book


One of the good guys of local economics, Paul Walker, has just had his new book published: on the firm. Good on you, Paul.


He calls it “the greatest book ever written’ which, if you didn’t believe as an author, you wouldn’t be one.

Having a book like this published by a leading international textbook publisher is no small thing. (Mind you, neither is the price, but that’s what happens when you go with a leading international textbook publisher.) So the man definitely deserves some praise. So go ahead and give him some. And if you’ve got some dollars, buy it.

Oh, and just to remind you, his topic is the very topic the Auckland Uni Econ Group are discussing tonight. Get along.

  1. Thanks Pete! The pricing of books is out of the hands of authors and I'm sure if the publishers did ask the authors they would all go for a lower price. I know I would. The same publisher puts out Per Bylund's book, at the same price :-(, "The Problem of Production: A New Theory of the Firm". New in that it is one of the few Austrian approaches to the firm.
