Abstract

Baranzini & Mirante first provide a comprehensive list of Italian economists who were at Oxford from 1950 to about 1990. Then they examine seven lines of research, associated with John Hicks, Roy Harrod, Michael Bacharach, the Nuffield College, the production theory, and other fields of research. The contributions by Luigi Pasinetti, Carlo Casarosa, Stefano Zamagni, Mario Amendola, Roberto Scazzieri, and many others are considered in detail.
