The Economists´ Quartet
A Game, not a Theory
You are visiting the homepage of The Economists´ Quartet, a card
game about economists made by economists for economists. Its aim is twofold: it is
designed to make students interested in the life of contemporary and former
economists and their most important ideas, as well as be an entertaining pastime
for ´grown-up´ post graduate economists.
What to do here
If you are new here, you may want to read the paper first.
You can chose to read it in html or
download it as a pdf-file. It is originally
published as Darmstadt Discussion
Paper in Economics No. 109 at Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. The cards
as well as the rules of the game are described in there.
Then you can have a look at the deck of cards, download it
and start playing. Every month we introduce a new interesting pair of economists,
the Duet of the Month. To improve your playing skills,
you can have a look to our Short History of
Economists´ Duets. On the other hand, we would appreciate some
feedback, if you can tell us about another
interesting duet of two economists in the game.
Last but not least, since we are already planning the next version of
The Economists´ Quartet, we appreciate suggestions about economists
to be added. If you like yourself (or your boss) to be included, feel free to
contact Sandra or Niels.
