Several pre-eminent economists have appropriately contributed to this book, published in honor ofHenk Houthakker, which also collects four previously unpublished articles by Houthakker himself, namely his presidential address to the Econometric Society, a paper on the dynamics of consumption and saving and two notes relating to the origins of his Consumer Demand in the United States (with Lester Taylor). The ten contributions are either inspired by Houthakker's work, or variations on themes frequently investigated by Houthakker.
