Synopsis

This second volume of the late Julian Simon's articles and essays continues the theme of volume one in presenting unorthodox and controversial approaches to many fields in economics.



The book features a wide range of papers divided into eight parts with a biographical introduction to the author's career and intellectual development as well as personal revelations about his background. Part One contains essays on statistics and probability which are developed in the second section on theoretical and applied econometrics. The third part considers individual behavior, including discussion of the effects of income on suicide rates and successive births, and foster care. Parts four and five present papers on population and migration, for which the author is best known. The sixth part contains Professor Simon's controversial discussion of natural resources and the articles in part seven relate to welfare analysis. In the final part some of the author's previously unpublished papers are presented, including discussions on duopoly and economists' thinking.



Like the first volume this collection will be of interest to academics and students welcoming controversial and unorthodox approaches to a wide variety of theories and concepts in economics.
