New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, 2nd edition
In 2008, Palgrave Macmillan published The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, 2nd edition. It retains some of the articles from the classic work of the same name that became a standard work for economists. Approximately 80% of the text was either entirely new or substantially rewritten to reflect the depth of change within the discipline between the editions. This new edition brings together the world’s most influential economists to provide a scholarly overview of economic thought today. The online format offers a dynamic, updated resource serving the information needs of a new generation of economists.
