Specific topics include the historical origins of the cost-push fallacy, pre-war developments in portfolio theory, Adam Smith on classes and saving, the generalization contract in classical and neoclassical economic thought, Marshall['s theory of the firm, institutionalism as scientific economics, and the use of models in the neoclassical literature on research and development.
