The papers collected here deal with various topics in economic theory, ranging from preference and consumption, duality and production, equilibrium, capital, and growth, to the theory of social overhead capital. They all have a common theme: to try to formulate the working of economic forces in a capitalist economy in terms of mathematical models and to explore their static, dynamic, and welfare implications. Most of the papers were originally published during the 1960s and early 1970s.
