Adjunct Professor of Economics recognised in The Times' best business books of the year

The Great Economists by Linda Yueh has been selected as one of The Times newspaper's ‘Business Books of the Year’.

According to reviewer Rosamund Urwin, Professor Yueh has “written a remarkably accessible primer” to 12 of history’s greatest economists, including Adam Smith, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes and Joan Robinson. 

Professor Yueh is also a former editor at Bloomberg TV and an ex-adviser to the World Bank.

In her latest book, profiles are not just history lessons – they also draw connections between these thinkers’ work and some of the greatest challenges of our time, such as the rise of China, low wages and inequality.
