From the cover: “This book is a comparative study of methods of dynamic economics, regarded as alternative ways in which the theory of changing economy can be reduced into manageable terms. Four main methods are examined: (1) the Static (classical and neo-classical); (2) the Temporary Equilibrium method (of the author’s own Value and Capital); (3) the Fixprice (post-Keynesian) method; (4) the Growth Equilibrium method, developed in most recent years. To this last the second half of the book is devoted. The treatment (even of the Turnpike Theorem and of the Ramsey theory of saving) is such as to be accessible to non-mathematical economists. But appendices showing its relation to the work of the mathematicians are added.”
