FIRST EDITION. viii, 98 pp; 18 figs.; figs. A-E. Original cloth. Very Good. Copy of Wolfgang Stolper (1912-2002), with his pencil signature. A nice association as Bowley and Stolper were each pioneers in the use of the 'box diagram': 'Economists hail it as 'a powerful tool,' 'a work of genius,' and 'one of the most ingenious geometrical constructions ever devised in economics.' . . . Far from being timeless, the box diagram possesses a definite chronology. That chronology features some of the leading names in neoclassical and modern economics. Francis Edgeworth, Vilfredo Pareto, A.W. Bowley, Tibor Scitovsky, Wassily Leontief, Kenneth Arrow, Abba Lerner, Wolfgang Stolper, Paul Samuelson, T. M. Rybczynski, and Kelvin Lancaster all contributed to the diagram's development. . . . After Pareto's Manuale, fully eighteen years elapsed before the box diagram made its next appearance in A.W. Bowley's famous 1924 Mathematical Groundwork of Economics. Inspired by Edgeworth and Pareto, Bowley generalized and extended their work . . . Wolfgang Stolper and Paul Samuelson published the first production box diagram to appear in print. It features prominently in their 1941 Review of Economic Studies article on 'Protection and Real Wages' ' (Thomas M. Humphrey, 'The Early History of the Box Diagram', Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Economic Quarterly Volume 82/1 Winter 1996). 'Wolfgang F. Stolper, 89, an economist who taught at the University of Michigan from 1949 to 1982, died in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on April 1, 2002. Mr. Stolper was best known for the Stolper-Samuelson Theorem, done in collaboration with the noted economist Paul Samuelson. This changed the current conceptions about the effect of open trade on the economies of trading nations. Dr. Stolper believed that while trade stimulates economic growth, it is not always beneficial for workers wages' (Austrian Information, Volume 55, No. 5/6, May/June 2002).
