The Development of the Theory of Exchange
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to provide an outline of the development of the theory of exchange, concentrating on the less well-known development of the formal model which culminated in the contribution of Edgeworth. The importance of exchange, viewed as the central economic problem for the early neoclassical economists, is stressed. Instead of taking a chronological approach, non-utility approaches are first discussed.
