About

Why is this person notable and influential?

Irving Fisher was an American economist, statistician, inventor, eugenicist and progressive social campaigner. He was one of the earliest American neoclassical economists, though his later work on debt deflation has been embraced by the post-Keynesian school. Joseph Schumpeter described him as “the greatest economist the United States has ever produced”, an assessment later repeated by James Tobin and Milton Friedman.
