Essays on McCloskey

Over at the Online Library of Liberty there is an excellent group of essays covering economist Deirdre McCloskey’s work on the “Bourgeois Era”:  The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics for an Age of Commerce (2006), Bourgeois Dignity: Why Economics Can’t Explain the Modern World (2010), and the forthcoming Bourgeois Equality: How Betterment Became Ethical, 1600-1848, and Then Suspect (2015).

The full amount of essays are still in the process of being posted, but so far you can read ones by economists Don Boudreaux, Joel Mokyr, and John Nye. Boudreaux captures many of my own feelings about McCloskey’s work, while Mokyr and Nye provide some excellent feedback and criticism.

Definitely worth checking out.
