Don Patinkin's Ph.D. dissertation as the prehistory of disequilibrium theories
AbstractAbstract: In the opening sentence of Money, Interest, and Prices, Patinkin noted that his book was the outgrowth of ideas first presented in his doctoral dissertation. This claim has attracted the attention of most scholars who wrote about his works in recent years. As shown by Boianovsky (2006), Merhling (2002) or Rubin (2002), reading Patinkin's doctoral dissertation shed new light on his major work. However, these articles only contain partial presentations of the thesis. This essay contributes to fill in this gap. It offers a detailed presentation of the second part of Patinkin's Ph.D and claims that this document foreshadowed the research programs of disequilibrium theorists of the 1970's.
