This is a collection of papers prepared in honour of Lionel McKenzie, one of the most influential theorists of the post-war period. His research has been instrumental to the development of three of the most important fields of modern economics - general equilibrium, optimal growth and international trade. These papers originated from the conference held in McKenzie's honour in May 1989 in Rochester, New York, and were written by some of the leading economic researchers of our time including David Cass, Peter Hammond, Jess Benhabib, Andreas Hornstein, Edward Prescott, Yves Balasko and Karl Shell. Included in this volume are nine papers on general equilibrium, eight papers on optimal growth and seven papers on international trade.
