The 2018 Debate for the Menger-Walras Trophy was held on April 3, 2018
Posted on Wednesday, April 18, 2018
“in connection with the exaggerated claims that used to be made in economics for the power of deduction and a priori reasoning – by classical writers, by Carl Menger, by the 1932 Lionel Robbins . . . ., by disciples of Frank Knight, by Ludwig von Mises – I tremble for the reputation of my subject. Fortunately, we have left that behind us”.
Paul Samuelson, quoted by Mark Blaug (1992) The Methodology of Economics: or how economists explain” pp. 81-82.
