History comes alive in this fascinating story of opposing views that continue to play a fundamental role in today's politics and economics. The Big Three in Economics traces the turbulent lives and battle of ideas of the three most influential economists in world history: Adam Smith, representing laissez faire; Karl Marx, reflecting the radical socialist model; and John Maynard Keynes, symbolizing big government and the welfare state.

    The Big One Economist & His Enemies

    A very interesting and informative read. Gives a good grounding in the basics of economic history. My main gripe with the book, which explains, chronologically, the lives and ideals of Smith, Marx and Keynes, as well as the interim periods between each, is the author's clear bias toward Smith and the neoclassical model which and attacks, oft violently, the ideas of especially Marx and also Keynes and any who share their views. If this book can be taken with a clear view that the American author is clearly bias and look past that, then this book can be recommended.
