It is a rare individual who is able to draw from many disparate traditions in economic thought and combine these into a coherent research program.  Brian J. Loasby, longtime professor of economics at the University of Stirling, United Kingdom, is one such individual.  This first of two volumes of essays written in his honor demonstrates the diversity of thought inspired by his work.  Professor Loasby, longtime professor of economics at the University of Stirling, United Kingdom, is one such individual.  This first of two volumes of essays written in his honor demonstrates the diversity of thought inspired by his work.  Professor Loasby has been a persistent critic of mainstream approaches to the issues of knowledge, entrepreneurship, and organization in economics—issues that stand at the forefront of Austrian research agenda.  In fact, contributions from Austrians and Marshallians (another nonmainstream school emphasizing dynamic rather than static analysis) to this volume show a surprising degree of complementarity, and serve as a forceful challenge to Walrasian orthodoxy.
