The website contains a vast amount of information on the history of economic thought. It presents thinkers, their main works (and links to those works) and schools of thought which are sorted by political economy schools, neoclassical schools, alternative schools as well as thematic schools. „This web site concentrates information and resources on the history of economic thought, from the ancient times until the modern day. It is designed for students, researchers and the general public, who are interested in learning about economics from a historical perspective.“

Comment from our editors:

The best comment that could be provided for this website comes from the Frequently Asked Questions page on why Fonseca built this website: "Because I'm completely crazy! Seriously, it started off as a collection of links to online books to assist a New School course on the history of economic doctrines. It then just sort of evolved by itself into the monster you see before you. " By building a dense and complete "link tank", on the history of economic thinking, the author of this website offers an amazing resource that should be provided to all students and researchers willing to understand how different concepts have evolved, how schools of economic thought have emerged, and aim to better understand economics from a historical point of view.
