This collection of Barzel's articles and papers from the 1960s through the 1990s reveals how the economist's research in microeconomics has evolved, and features his work on production functions and productivity, optimal timing, economic analysis of slavery, and the rise and fall of Jewish lending in the Middle Ages. The collection includes an autobiographical sketch in which Barzel details his education, the development of his ideas, and his influences.
