"It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," a reviewer for the Economist once observed, marking both Paul Samuelson's influence and his astonishing prolificacy. These two volumes gather the Nobel Laureate's final writings. Samuelson declined suggestions that he write an autobiography. Yet the texts in these volumes (selected by Samuelson with the help of his longtime assistant, Janice Murray) have a somewhat autobiographical cast, with tributes to friends and colleagues and speeches and interviews of both personal and historic interest. Volume 6 offers essays on classical economics; neoclassical, Marxian, and Sraffian economics; modern macroeconomics; welfare and efficiency economics; and economic and scientific theories. Volume 7 covers stochastic theory; modern economic policy; biographical essays; and autobiographical writings.[Revised appendixes accompany Samuelson and Etula's "Where Ricardo and Mill Rebut and Confirm Arguments of Mainstream Economists Supporting Globalization" and a previously unpublished "Afterthought" has been added to Samuelson's Dictionary of American Biography text on Joseph Schumpeter.] Additionally, three contributions omitted from early volumes have been included. The acknowledgements sections list the strict chronological order of the papers. The seven volumes of Samuelson's collected papers document the long and distinguished career of one of America's most important economists.

"It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," observes a reviewer in the Economist who goes on to note that "a cynic might add that it would have been better for Professor Samuelson to write less merely to give others a chance to write at all."In fact, Samuelson's output, his "extraordinary mastery of methods, both mathematical and linguistic" (review of Volume 4 of The Collected Scientific Papers), have not diminished. Volume 5 collects 108 articles written since 1976, bringing the total to nearly 400 important contributions to economics. As in earlier volumes, the papers are arranged by subject. They cover Economic Theory: Marx, Keynes, and Schumpeter; International Economics; Stochastic Theory; Classical Economics; Mathematical Biology; Biographical and Autobiographical Writings; and Current Economics and Policy.Volumes 1 through 4 encompass more than 280 articles. The first two contain virtually all of Samuelson's contributions to economic theory through mid-1964; Volume 3 contains all the scientific papers written from mid-1964 through 1970, and the last volume brings his work up to through 1976.Paul Samuelson received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1970 and is Institute Professor of Economics Emeritus at MIT. Kate Crowley edited volume 4 of The Collected Scientific Papers with Hiroaki Nagatani.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Linear Programming and Economic Analysis'
Designed primarily for economists and those interested in management economics who are not necessarily accomplished mathematicians, this text offers a clear, concise exposition of the relationship of linear programming to standard economic analysis. The research and writing were supported by The RAND Corporation in the late 1950s.
Linear programming has been one of the most important postwar developments in economic theory, but until publication of the present volume, no text offered a comprehensive treatment of the many facets of the relationship of linear programming to traditional economic theory. This book was the first to provide a wide-ranging survey of such important aspects of the topic as the interrelations between the celebrated von Neumann theory of games and linear programming, and the relationship between game theory and the traditional economic theories of duopoly and bilateral monopoly.
Modern economists will especially appreciate the treatment of the connection between linear programming and modern welfare economics and the insights that linear programming gives into the determinateness of Walrasian equilibrium. The book also offers an excellent introduction to the important Leontief theory of input-output as well as extensive treatment of the problems of dynamic linear programming.
Successfully used for three decades in graduate economics courses, this book stresses practical problems and specifies important concrete applications.
