Sample text

In addition to a long term-paper, in each course he assigned over ten two-page essays, asking penetrating questions about the original works of past economists. Students never knew that Fusfeld was teaching them the art of writing and critical thinking without any compensation. In 1983, Dan’s history lectures were resurrected, thanks to Nancy Bertaux, one of the contributors to this volume. Having chosen Michigan for the ‘breadth of course offerings’, Nancy asked the department to explain the absence of regular lecture courses in history of economic thought.

FUSFELD During this period Kenneth Boulding and I jointly taught a graduate course on ‘The Heterodox Economists’, featuring Henry George, Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, and the ‘monetary cranks’ of the 1920s. We alternated in responsibility for the sessions. One of us would make a presentation, the other would comment, and then the class was open for comments, questions and argument. The discussions were invariably exciting, and ideas flew like a torrent from Boulding. The basic theme was that there was a great deal to be learned from economists who were outside the mainstream.

More education in practical political economy. Shortly after leaving Michigan State I began work on my short book on the history of economic thought, The Age of the Economist, at the urging of Walter Adams, one of the friends I made at MSU. FUSFELD step toward a more accurate and fuller understanding of the modern economy. Perhaps the best statement of that view is Schumpeter’s History of Economic Analysis. My view was different, nurtured on Thorstein Veblen, Wesley Mitchell, Leo Rogin’s The Meaning and Validity of Economic Theory, Eric Roll’s History of Economic Thought, and my own reading of the classics in their historical context.
