Joseph A. Schumpeter: Not Guilty of Plagiarism but of “Infelicities of Attribution”

  • Nicholas W. Balabkins


Throughout his academic life, Eli Schwartz’s field of specialization has been Corporate Finance. In 1962 he published his successful text, Corporate Finance, and in 2007, with John B. Guerard, Jr., he co-authored Quantitative Corporate Finance. For decades he has ruled supremely in this field at Lehigh’s College of Business; and today generations of his former students are plying the skills they acquired from him throughout the U.S.
