These essays were written in 1969 to mark the retirement of Maurice Dobb from the Readership in Economics an Cambridge University. The contributors are economists and historians from many parts of the world. The unifying theme, economic growth and planning under socialism and capitalism, was central to the major part of Maurice Dobb's work.
