Linear Programming and Economic Analysis

New York: McGraw-Hill, 1958.

First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. ix, 527 pp. Fine copy in original grey cloth; no dust jacket. "Linear programming has been one of the most important postwar developments in economic theory, but until publication of the present volume, no text offered a comprehensive treatment of the many facets of the relationship of linear programming to traditional economic theory. This book was the first to provide a wide-ranging survey of such important aspects of the topic as the interrelations between the celebrated von Neumann theory of games and linear programming, and the relationship between game theory and the traditional economic theories of duopoly and bilateral monopoly" (publisher's description). Both Samuelson and Solow went on to win the Nobel Prize for economics.
