SAIS prof’s article lauded as one of journal’s best in 100 years

In its list of the top 20 articles it has published in its first 100 years, the journal American Economic Review has included the 1974 article “The Political Economy of the Rent-Seeking Society” written by Anne Krueger, professor of international economics at SAIS.

The selection committee based its choices on “sheer intellectual quality, influence on the ideas and practices of economists, and general significance or breadth.”
