How well do you know what the great classical and modern economists wrote? Challenge yourself with our new Name That Economist game.
In each round, you will be presented with a random quote from a great book or essay in economics. Your challenge is to pick the right author from the four suggested authors. It's fair game to use any clues at all, from topics you know the author wrote about, to writing style, to your knowledge of history.
When you decide to reveal the correct answer, you also can choose to go to the book or essay to read the quote in context.
The optional timer stops automatically when you select any of the four suggested answers or if you reveal the correct answer. You can also turn the timer on and off directly in case you want to pause it. You'll be surprised how much time you can shave off your average with just a little game practice.
The cuneiform inscription in the Liberty Fund logo is the earliest-known written appearance of the word "freedom" (amagi), or "liberty." It is taken from a clay document written about 2300 B.C. in the Sumerian city-state of Lagash.
