    1. This is a really good introductory primer on the three competing economic theories neoclassical, Keynesian, and Marxian Although Wolff and Resnick are Marxists of the Althusserian variety they do an impeccable job of being completely neutral and unbiased in their assessment of the aforementioned theories However, they do spend the majority of the book explaining the Marxian view And, they make sure the Marxian view can be sustained in the 21st century, by adapting issues of corporate structure, [...]

    2. I m the president of a local union and have been teaching myself the basics of economics through self directed studies for the purpose of being able to up my rhetoric in regards to supply sided b.s I read Wolff s Occupy the Economy and Democracy at Work I LOVED them so much I went ahead and purchased Contending Economic Theories This book is the same high quality as the others, and I would have given it a four or five stars except that for an economics layman, such as myself, this one got a litt [...]

    3. This is a bit of a strange book It is an update of a book whose purpose the authors say was, first, to explain Marxism and especially current work in Marxian economics to modern students and, second, to compare this to the dominant approach of the neoclassical schools In the current update, they include Keynesian economics as a third paradigm There is a marked difference in style and tone between the discussions of neoclassical, Keynesian and Marxian bits Presumably Wolff wrote the Marxian bits [...]

    4. In an incredibly informative compilation, Professor Richard Wolff and Professor Resnick provide an updated comparative study of The Big Three economic models Neoclassical, Keynsian and Marxian.The book is summarized as an introductory economics text and certainly meets such expectations From the seemingly unquestionable mathematics of Neoclassicism to the social and political analyses of Marxism and all the mediating principles of Keynsian theory in between indeed, nearly every fundamental facet [...]

    6. Great intro book for anyone newly interested in Economics and the three primary contending economic theories.

    7. A surprisingly dense book on three of the major schools of economic thought Took me a very long time to work through it, as it is most definitely academic in tone and therefore not at all a light read That being said, worth the time investment 100% I ve come out the other side with a nuanced understanding of neoclassical theory, Keynes critique of Smith and Ricardo s work, and some special topics on late neoclassical theory, which include some sections on topics like game theory I would say that [...]

    8. Contending Economic Theories is a hyper examination of the world s three major economic theories and their implications for economic success While focusing on the fundamentals, Resnick and Wolff do a wonderful job at breaking down entry points and assumptions entailed in each theory, meticulously juxtaposing them in the process This textbook is a little technical but extremely informative for its size I suggest familiarization with elementary economics prior to reading this, or maybe read this b [...]

    9. Interesting comparative text by Wolff Definitely most worthwhile for the bit on new Marxian economics His description of classical economics is standard and unsympathetic, and Keynesian economics gets super short shrifted, but we know who Wolff is Important to get these perspectives out there A good personal resource though I d be hesitant to assign it as a central text in a class.
