On Eponymy in Economics
By Julio H. Cole
This article appeared in the Summer 2006 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Like mathematicians and medical scientists, economists have contributed a fair share to the world’s stock of scientific concepts named after their founders. The proof is the wonderful book An Eponymous Dictionary of Economics: A Guide to Laws and Theorems Named after Economists (2004), edited by Julio Segura and Carlos Rodriguez, which provides detailed definitions and explanations for more than 300 eponymic expressions commonly used in economics.
