'Adventures of an Economist' is an autobiography that reads like a novel. Franco Modigliani's economic theories, recognized globally in 1985 when he was awarded the Nobel Prize, have shaped much of the world's modern research in the areas of savings and corporate finance. But this Italian refugee's story is far more than a journey through economic thinking. It is a study of the great historical, political, and economic events of the past 60 years. The author takes the reader on a journey from his childhood in Rome through fascism and his flight from Nazism to his arrival in the United States. Modigliani's passion for economics ultimately brought him a professorship at MIT, but not before he demonstrated his opposition to the Vietnam War and enjoyed many fascinating encounters with some of the key political figures of the twentieth century, from Kennedy to Reagan. Modigliani's direct and personal approach will appeal to anyone wanting to understand the global economy, its social and political significance, and its impact on our lives.
