"...an exceptionally well crafted commentary on the current state and prospects of methodological discussions in mainstream economics."
Although model building has become the backbone of modern economics, few theorists have analyzed the methodological requirements and problems of assuring testbility in economic models. Lawrence A. Boland, a leading authority in the field, presents a wide-ranging analysis of this issue and relates it to wider debates in the sciences and social sciences about empiricism and the truth status of models.
