It has been a pleasure to put together this festschrift in honor of Professor Eli Schwartz. The word festschrift is taken from two German words whose meanings are, respectively, “celebration (or feast)” and “writing”; and this festschrift does precisely that. It celebrates, through a collection of invited essays, the contributions that Eli has made over the years to his profession, to his colleagues and friends, and to Lehigh University. The volume title, Variations in Economic Analysis, is certainly appropriate.
