Dear Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to announce the History of Economics
Society awards for 2007.

Best Article Award: This year, the HES best article committee,
comprised of Alain Marciano (chair), Sheryl Kasper, Stephen Meardon,
Leonidas Montes, and Pedro Teixeira, has chosen the paper by Mauro
, “The Making of Chapters 13 and 14 of Patinkin’s Money,
Interest, and Prices”, published in HOPE, as the best paper for
2006. The committee praised the significance of the subject matter
as well as the care with which Mauro conducted his research. It is
noteworthy that this is the second time Mauro has won the best
article award. He earned the award previously for his article,
“Wicksell on Deflation in the Early 1920s,” HOPE 1999.

The Joseph Dorfman Best Dissertation award: The committee, Fatima
Brandao, Evellyn Forget and Carl Wennerlind, has unanimously agreed
to award the Dorman award for the best dissertation to Tiago Mata
for his dissertation, Dissent in Economics: Making Radical
Political Economics and Post Keynesian Economics, 1960-1080,
completed in 2006 at the London School of Economics under the
supervision of Mary Morgan. The committee wrote: We commend Mata
for contributing to the field of history of economic thought with
careful analyses of the emergence and trajectory of two important,
yet understudied, subfields in economics… . In his work we learn
how these subfields cohered around intellectual and political
dissent against the prevailing economic orthodoxy and how their
criticisms and polemics earned them increasing respect and popularity.”

The Joseph J. Spengler Best Book award: The committee of Cristina
Marcuzzo (chair), Maria Pagenelli, and Joseph Persky chose Jealousy
of Trade, by Istvan Hont, as this year’s Spengler book
recipient. They wrote: “We found Hont’s book to be monumental in
the detail and breadth of its scholarship. His understanding of
both the primary texts he utilizes and the broader
political-economic-historical contexts of that work is indeed
masterful. … This is both an outstanding work in the history of
economic and political ideas and a work that is relevant to ongoing
discussions today about globalization and the nation-state.”

Distinguished Fellow Awards: This year, the committee (Wade Hands,
chair, Mary Morgan, and Roy Weintraub), chose two scholars whose
scholarly achievements reflect common themes for the Distinguished
Fellow award: Anthony Waterman and Donald Winch.

Anthony Waterman studied as an undergraduate at Selwyn College under
his tutor, Joan Robinson. He emigrated to Canada, and studied
theology at St. John’s COllege in Winnipeg, being ordained in
1963. His doctoral work was conducted at ANU. In 1991, he
published “Revolutions, Eocnmics and Relition,” makring the
culmiantion of a decade of study. In this work, he makes the case
that scarcity was the central point of contention between the
romantic political economists and the utilitarian political
economists of the 19th century. In 2005, he published “Political
Economy and Christian Theology since the Enlightenment,” where he
examines the history of the estrangement of theology and political economy.

Donald Winch, Emeritus Professor of Intellecutal History, School of
Humanities, Suffolk University, obtained his economics degree at the
LSE and then studied under Viner at Princeton. He has published
books on economic thought during the ‘classical’ period that
emphasize the connections between theory, policy and public
debate. In 1987, he published his book on Malthus, and, in 1996,
“Riches and Poverty: An Intellectual History of Political Economy
in Britain, 1750-1834.” In his review of this book, Waterman writes
that it is “magisterial.” This is precisely correct. Like
Waterman, Winch places Malthus (as opposed to Ricardo) at the center
of the debate between the romantics (Carlyle, Ruskin and the like)
and the utilitarian economists and churchmen.

Please join me in congratulating our colleagues for these well
deserved awards.
