Symposium on the Contributions of Business to Economics
Journal Issue Pages: 224 Volume 49, Number 2 Published: June 2017 An issue of History of Political Economy
The relationship between business and economics has received much attention—studies examining how business has influenced economic policy and how business buttressed the development of economic thought through funding are plentiful. But few have addressed how businesses have actively participated in constructing economic doctrines or what businesspersons thought about select topics in economics and how they used their understanding to engage, challenge, and steer economists. "The Symposium on  the Contributions of Business to Economics" makes a first attempt to remedy these shortcomings by focusing on the contributions of business to economics and by bringing together contributions conducted from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
