Probability and Statistics in the Tinbergen-Keynes Debates

William PEDEN

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)peer-review


Erwin Dekker’s Jan Tinbergen (1903–1994) and the Rise of Economic Ex-pertise (2021) provides a rare treasure in the history of economics: from a single volume, we can obtain a sense of both Jan Tinbergen’s worldview and historical context. The worldview was egalitarianism, optimistic about scientific expertise, and hopeful that internationalism could avoid the horrors of the First World War, which occurred in Tinbergen’s forma-tive years.
