Harry Gunnison Brown: An Orthodox Economist and His Contributions, 3rd Edition (1405108649) cover image
Harry Gunnison Brown was born in 1880 and died in 1975. He was part of a important group of American economists that included Herbert J. Davenport, E.R.A. Seligman, J. B. Clark, Alvin S. Johnson, Frank A. Fetter, Richard T. Ely and Frank Knight. In some ways Brown represented an orthodoxy in economics that was slipping away as neoclassical economics assumed a particular shape. For example, Brown argued for the separate influences of both land and capital goods on the pricing of goods and services and did not follow the trend in “orthodox” circles of considering land just another form of capital. Brown supported land value taxation at a time when the leading economists of his day rejected Henry George’s ideas and the possibility of Georgist economics.
