Balanced Growth – A History of the Department of Economics, University of Melbourne

Edited by Ross Williams

Economics became a major discipline at the University of Melbourne following the establishment of the Faculty of Commerce in 1925 and the appointment of Douglas Copland as founding dean. As political economy, however, the subject had been taught in the Faculty of Arts from the University's foundation. This book provides a history of the Department of Economics: its staff and students, curriculum, contributions to economic theory and policy, governance and funding. The narrative is set in the context of the world outside the department, of higher education policy in Australia and the state of the economy.
