Drawing on the work of the Austrian School and its heirs, Capital in Disequilibrium develops a modern, systematic version of capital theory in order to suggest a new approach to the subject of economics. Original and provocative in his reflection, Lewin offers both a new approach and an accessible discussion of one of the most important, but also one of the most difficult, areas in economics.

He applies the approach to human capital, business cycles, and the economics of institutions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
