About the Author
David L. Prychitko is Associate Professor, Department of Economics, Northern Michigan University. He is the author of Marxism and Workers' Self-Management: The Essential Tension. In addition, he edited Individuals, Institutions, Interpretations: Hermeneutics Applied to Economics; Producer Cooperatives and Labor-Managed Systems Vol. I: Theory and Vol. II: Case Studies (both with Jaroslav Vanek); and The Market Process: Essays in Contemporary Austrian Economics (with Peter J. Boettke).
"This book is an argument by counterexample. Following Friedman, Thurow, and others, most economists deny that substantial disagreement exists within the profession. Prychitko shows this simply isn't so. Economists do disagree, and they disagree over theory. By way of proof, the book presents a selection of heterodox articles." -- Roger Koppl, Fairleigh Dickinson University
