    Views

    Early work was concentrated on the theory of oligopoly including a new approach to the problem of price setting in oligopolistic markets. Later I turned to problems of economic growth and welfare economics as may be seen from a paper on the optimal savings ratio. In the 1970s my main contribution has been to the economics of technical change, which is still a topic I am highly interested in.

    In the field of the history of economic thought, I published letters of Mill, Ricardo and Jevons, which I happened to discover.
