Introducing Guest Blogger Peter Lewin
| Peter Klein |
Peter studied with Ludwig Lachmann at University of the Witwatersrand and earned a PhD in economics at Chicago under Gary Becker. He is currently clinical professor of economics at the University of Texas at Dallas, School of Management, where he has taught since 1979. Peter has published in monetary economics, human capital, the economics of discrimination, and a variety of other subjects but is best known for his work on capital theory, where his teacher Lachmann made seminal contributions. Peter’s work on capital, and its relation to the theory of the firm, has inspired much of my and Nicolai’s thinking on these issues.
Besides his academic work Peter is also an entrepreneur, helping co-found Soft Warehouse in 1984, the firm that became CompUSA.
We’re delighted to have Peter on the team and look forward to his insights.
