Looking Backward at Feasible Socialism: Using Bellamy to Teach Schumpeter.
Bogart, William T.
Journal of Economic Education, v26 n4 p352-56 Fall 1995
Compares and contrasts Joseph Schumpeter's 1942 classic of economic thought, "Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy," with Edward Bellamy's 1888 utopian novel, "Looking Backward." Both works criticize capitalism and arrive at socialist solutions. Bellamy's entertaining novel provides a useful benchmark for students analyzing Schumpeter. (MJP)
