Earlier this year, Mario Pomini published an interesting book titled The Paretian Tradition during the Interwar Period: From Dynamics to Growth (London: Routledge pp162, $140.00, ISBN: 978-0-415-66140-9). In this brief paper, prepared for the History of Economic Thought and Policy, I review Ponimi’s book, discussing his treatment of the contributions of the largely Italian scholars – including Luigi Amorono, Giulio La Volpe, Eraldo Fossati and Giuseppe Palomba – to the Paretian tradition of dynamic general equilibrium. I suggest that this is a useful book that deals with a very interesting episode in intellectual history; although the significant limits of the Pareto inspired approach to dynamics are not fully delineated or explored.
