 The Theory of Prices and Resource Allocation

Show Summary Details


Edmond Malinvaud takes the position, in this chapter, that rigorous analysis will continue to dominate economic theory and that various extensions are still possible without completely abandoning the standard theoretical framework. Nevertheless, he argues forcefully that models must be constantly tested against empirical data and that theory cannot develop in isolation.
