About this book


Our analytical heritage in macrodynamics owes a great deal to Ragnar Frisch. The tradition of quantitative methods in economic analysis owes not a little to Frisch, Trygve, Haavelmo and Leif Johansen. These essays pay homage to Thalberg - student, friend, colleague and collaborator of that trio.
