Introduction to Chris Freeman’s “Schumpeter’s ‘Business Cycles’ Revisited”


  • Freeman, Alan

    () (Geopolitical Economy Research Group, University of Manitoba)


Chris Freeman’s lecture represents an invaluable guide to Schumpeter’s theoretical framework. Two of the many themes deserve special attention. The first is the apparent contradiction between Schumpeter’s attachment to Walrasian equilibrium, and his advocacy of a theory of cyclic economic movement. The second is the economic role of institutions.
