Classifying and Citing Schumpeter's Works From the Perspective of English Availability


  • Esben Sloth Andersen


This paper presents a selective and annotated bibliography of Schumpeter s works together with a system for citing and referencing them. Schumpeter wrote about 12 books and booklets, 200 articles, and 50 reviews in two languages. Since the world of economics is increasingly an Anglophone world, it is a major problem that even important works are still only available in German language and that it is often difficult to detect whether a German work has been translated. The paper presents a dynamic system for handling such problems. The system only includes German works that are still not available in English; and the citation clearly indicates whether a work is in English or German. The system also gives priority to an article s availability in an easily accessible collection so that the original sources are only included as additional information in the reference. The paper presents a large selection of Schumpeter s works according to this system. In addition, Schumpeter s works are classified by subject and by type of publication.
