NYT Article Features Business/Economic Historian David Moss

Readers may be interested in a recent (August 21) article in the New York Times featuring David Moss of the Harvard Business School and his work on income inequality and financial crisis.  Professor Moss is a founding director of the Tobin Project, a Cambridge-based "alliance of the nation's leading academics united by a belief in the power of ideas" that seeks to "shape debate within the academic community."
Moss has recently co-edited a collection of essays with Edward Balleisen, associate professor of history and senior fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University.  Government and Markets: Toward a New Theory of Regulation (Cambridge University Press, 2009) contains essays by, among others, Mary O. Furner, Neil Fligstein, Mary O'Sullivan, Barry Eichengreen, Tony Freyer, and the editors. It  is available for download by chapter on the Tobin Project website.
