About the 2008 print edition

Following its original publication in 1987, The New Palgrave: A Dictionary of Economics became established as the leading reference work for economists in all spheres of the discipline.

Since then, however, the field of economics has expanded and so Palgrave Macmillan is proud to publish a new edition of the Dictionary of Economics which reflects the state of the discipline today.

The new edition features over 1,000 new or heavily revised articles and includes:

  • signed articles by over 1,500 eminent contributors providing a current overview of economics
  • classic essays of enduring importance from the 1987 edition
  • topics placed in their historical perspective, indicating likely future trends as well as describing the contemporary situation

New or expanded areas include:

  • experimental and behavioural economics
  • game theory
  • international economics
  • technological change and growth

Published in eight print volumes, totaling 7,344 pages this second edition is the definitive resource for a new generation of economists.
