A Theoretical, Historical, and Statistical Analysis of the Capitalist Process.New York and London, McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., 1939 Stock Code: 138560
NotesFirst edition, first printing, of one of Schumpeter's most significant contributions to economic theory, and among the seminal texts of business cycle literature.
Once again Schumpeter placed the entrepreneur at the centre of events, perhaps why it "met with a less-than-enthusiastic reception. The monumental nature of this study, which included extensive theoretical, historical, and statistical work, placed it beyond the full comprehension of most economists. Its length, combined with the rising tide of Keynesian economics, put it beyond the interests of the profession as well. Colleagues, however, could readily comprehend and respect the amount of effort and scholarly seriousness that went into the project" (ANB).
