"JOHN R HICKS - about a lifelong struggle to get economic theory closer to history" John R. Hicks (1904-89) had as a lifelong struggle to bring economic theory close to historical time. Hicks spent much time in the first part of his career on steady state economics like general equilibrium theory, the IS-LM apparatus and welfare theory. But in successive versions he had always been making some effort to get away. One of the main reasons for this was because he wanted to make economics more human and that he wanted to make it more time-conscious and even doing it with a more earthy way of going about it.
