About this product
- DescriptionWassily Leontief (1905-1999) was the founding father of input-output ecomics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in 1973. This book offers a collection of papers in memory of Leontief by his students and close colleagues. The first part, 'Reflections on Input-Output Ecomics', focuses upon Leontief as a person and scholar as well as his personal contributions to ecomics. It includes contributions by Nobel Laureate Paul A. Samuelson who shares his memories of a young Professor Leontief at Harvard and ends with the last joint interview with Wassily and his wife, to date previously unpublished. The second part, 'Perspectives of Input-Output Ecomics', includes theoretical and empirical research inspired by Leontief's work and offers a wide-ranging sample of the state of interindustry ecomics, a field Leontief founded. This is a strong collection likely to appeal to a wide range of professionals in universities, government, industry and international organizations.
