The Economist asks: Which economists have had the greatest impact?
As part of The Economist's latest 'schools brief' series, we take a look at the seminal papers that have transformed economics and the thinkers behind them. First, our Asia economics editor explains why Hyman Minsky was pulled out of obscurity after the 2008 financial crisis, becoming a posthumous star. And our US economics editor tells us about George Akerlof and his market for so-called 'lemons'. Andrew Palmer hosts.
