Metaphors in the History of Economic Thought: Crises, Business Cycles and Equilibrium explores the evolution of economic theorizing through the lens of  metaphors. The edited volume sheds light on metaphors which have been  used by a range of key thinkers and schools of thought to describe  economic crises, business cycles and economic equilibrium.

Structured  in three parts, the book examines an array of metaphors ranging from  mechanics, waves, storms, medicine and beyond. The international panel  of contributors focuses primarily on economic literature up to the  Second World War, knowing again that the use of metaphors in economic  work has seen a resurgence since the 1980s.

This work  will be of interest to advanced students and researchers in the history  of economic thought, and economics and language.
