Summary

Summary

Knut Wicksell made enormous contributions to capital theory, monetary theory and fiscal policy. However whilst his books are widely available in English, few of his more than 800 articles have ever been translated. This volume includes new translations of Wicksell's contributions to marginalism and capital theory; public economics and unemployment.
