  • Fritz Machlup
Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


The Chairman of the Programme Committee imposed on the President of this association an unduly hard task. Perhaps he felt some hostility towards him and wanted to be nasty; or he did not realise how difficult his assignment was! Anyway, I found myself saddled with the commitment to produce for this Presidential Address a history of thought on economic integration.
