Echoing the narrative style of Director Quentin Tarantino, Professor Lawrence H. White delivers an overview of the economic intellectual debates of the 20th century in his book 'Clash of Economic Ideas.' These debates are framed through the lenses of individuals such as Irving Fisher, Rexford Tugwell, Wilhelm Röpke, Ludwig Erhard, George Stigler, Ronald Coase, John Maynard Keynes, F. A. Hayek, and others. What results is a non-linear and captivating historical narrative that offers a refreshing perspective from the roaring twenties and the Great Depression to the Great Inflation and fiscal policy issues of today.
