The Institutionalist Tradition in Labor Economics
Edited by Dell P. Champlin and Janet T. Knoedler.
Includes a chapter by College at Brockport former faculty member J. Dennis Chasse: John R. Commons and his students : the view from the end of the twentieth century.
Institutionalist labor economics was the dominant approach to labor in the United States until the 1960s, when mathematical and abstract approaches to economics became more influential. A primary aim of this book is to demonstrate the continuing vibrancy and relevance of the institutionalist approach to labor economics, which is concerned with the issues of income distribution and inequality, the power of vested interests, and economic justice. Early institutionalists include John R. Commons, John Maurice Clark, and Thorstein Veblen.
