The History of Economic Thought website is reborn..

Kudos to Gonçalo Fonseca of INET for resurrecting the website on History of Economic Thought.

Here is an article on the announcement:

As many of you may know, the HET Website was constructed by myself (Gonçalo Fonseca) in a burst of youthful energy many years ago It was hosted for a long time on a faculty server at the New School for Social Research. It subsequently jumped around through other servers, and then went down for a while. Well, now it is back again, at a new URL address: HETWEBSITE.NET

The HET website will be here for a while, so you can update your bookmarks. While it has been considerably revamped, its mission remains the same. The HET website is a repository of collected links and information on the history of economic thought, from the ancient times until the modern day. It is designed for students and the general public, who are interested in learning about economics from a historical perspective.

The HET website it not an online textbook nor a reference encyclopedia. I like to think of it as a “link tank”, pointing students and researchers to online resources on economic theory. I have just organized these links in a manner which is both entertaining and educational.

The material is organized through three main navigation channels:

  1. Alphabetical Index of individual economist profiles,via
  2. Schools of Thought (loosely defined)
  3. A series of Essays and Surveys on specific topics

Good stuff..
