The New Palgrave Economics Collection

Following the publication of the award-winning and much-acclaimed The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, Second Edition, which brings together Nobel Prize winners and the brightest young scholars to survey the discipline, a new series of reference books is now available. Each title in The New Palgrave Economics Collection is comprised of articles from the Dictionary and covers a fundamental theme within economics. All of the articles have been specially chosen by the editors of the Dictionary, Steven N. Durlauf and Lawrence E. Blume, and are written by leading practitioners in the field.


Microeconometrics has been one of the most successful areas in modern economic research, developing a host of tools that are essential both in uncovering the determinants of individual behaviour and in the evaluation of public policy. This collection includes both classic and new entries by James Heckman that exemplify the evolution of the field.

Steven N. Durlauf is the Kenneth J. Arrow Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, USA. He has served as Co-Director of the Economics Program of the Santa Fe Institute and is currently a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research and Fellow of the Econometric Society.

Lawrence E. Blume is Goldwin Smith Professor of Economics at Cornell University, USA. He is a member of the external faculty at the Santa Fe Institute where he has served as Co-Director of the Economics Program and on the Institute's steering committee and a Fellow of the Econometric Society.

CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title 2008"Much has changed in the latest incarnation of this dictionary. ...More than 1,500 economists contributed almost 1,900 signed entries; more than 1,000 of the entries are new or 'heavily revised' and expanded. Along with the descriptions of economic method from earlier editions, this edition includes much information on 'what those methods have found.' It also offers new emphasis on advances that have occurred in microeconomics, Bayesian theory, game theory, and behavioral, international, and experimental economics. ...A regularly updated online version of the dictionary is available www.dictionaryofeconomics.com, with site license pricing based on institution type and FTE. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - CHOICE
