Sobre Samuelson

Ed Glaeser considera a contribuição de Paul Samuelson no mesmo nível das de Ken Arrow e Milton Friedman:

"He was an immortal among dismal scientists: one of the mighty trio, along with Kenneth Arrow and Milton Friedman, who dominated post-war economics, the great formalizer of the field. Friedman’s policy insights may have been more radical and significant; Arrow’s genius may have produced more beautiful gems of economic theory. But it was Samuelson who gave economists our toolbox — the mathematical methods that define our field — and the magnitude of that gift made him an indispensible economist."
