Teised raamatud teemal:
Corden has written a charming and insightful account of his professional and personal life, from his childhood in Bresiau, Germany, until his retirement in Melbourne, with some closing contemporary thoughts on the revival of protectionism.

The book is divided into two parts. Part I considers Corden's early life, from a young boy growing up in Nazi Germany, to his immigration from England to Australia and what that means for the author's self-identify. Part II addresses Corden's work on the Australian Protection Policy for which he is perhaps best known, before reflecting upon the author's time at Oxford University and the Australian National University, and, finally, moving on to review contributions made at the IMF, John Hopkins University, and The World Bank.

This book will be of interest to all aspiring economists, as well as established economists familiar with Corden's work. It is an inspiring and profound record of the intellectual journey made by one of Australia's best known economists.

Arvustused

"His well-travelled life, his ability to write in a clear and engaging style, his wide sympathies, his self-knowledge and modesty all combine to make this autobiography fascinating reading. Above all, it is more than a narrative. ... economists form the main audience for his autobiography, with perhaps a focus on those concerned with international economics and macroeconomic policy, all academics can learn from Max's career." (John Creedy, Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, Vol. 63 (1), 2019) "An important part of the book is devoted to Max's research output, which is considerable and of exceptionally high quality. ... Max also highlights throughout the book the profound influence that a number of individuals had upon his life and the immense debt he owes them." (Selwyn Cornish, Economic Record, Vol. 94 (306), September, 2018)
